Fresh Prince’s beloved Carlton, better known outside of Fresh Prince fans as Alfonso Ribeiro, will be making his return to television as the newest host on America’s Funniest Home Videos for its 26th season.
“It’s really about assisting the videos not trying to overpower the videos with your comedy,” Ribeiro told Entertainment Weekly. “But I have a different energy than Tom does and I’m very animated and energetic, and some of that will absolutely come through. I’m sure it will be dance-related in some form…. For me to able to come in and replace Tom, who’s my idol in the hosting world, will be a challenge but one that I feel excited to be a part of.”
