Alfonso Ribeiro first crossed paths with longtime America’s Funniest Home Videos host Tom Bergeron a last season when he won the Bergeron-hosted Dancing With The Stars. Now he’s staying in the ABC family to replace Bergeron on the long-running AFHV. The network had Bergeron make the announcement during the season finale of Dancing now airing.
America’s Funniest Home Videos returns for Season 26 this fall.
“After receiving hundreds of inquiries, stacks of video submissions and a very close audition race, one smile, one funny and sincere delivery became our standout favorite — Alfonso Ribeiro,” said executive producer Vin Di Bona.
