CofC Senior enjoys 'American Idol' fame as Ryan Seacrest doppleganger

If you're an American Idol fan, you may already be familiar with College of Charleston senior Shaun Kraisman - a doppleganger for the Fox show’s host Ryan Seacrest who earned national airtime during the season premiere.

The whole thing may sound a bit silly, but Kraisman, a communication major, aspires to be a television host in the future. When he was spotted during the Savannah auditions by FOX, he got to live out his dream for a few days, meet the judges, meet Seacrest himself, and enjoy 15 minutes of fame on one of American's most-watched programs.

The College of Charleston has posted a fun little video featuring Kraisman which we've shared up above.
