Later, Seacrest signed a huge deal with NBC, as a result, he was selected to report on the Olympic games – proving himself once again to be valuable commodity. The obvious and impressive accomplishment he enjoys, is while you may believe that the popular culture, celebrity subjects and sources would grow tiresome, Seacrest completely and fully understands, they never ever do.
