Television teacher Richard Curtis filled the empty seat next to Ripa for the second time in less than a month Monday.
He made his first appearance on October 21st after he beat out 20 other finalists for the chance to co-host the show.
And on Monday, Kelly said he did so well the first time around they had to ask him back.
Six of his students from his class at Souderton High were in the audience.
"I kept looking at my students and seeing their smiling faces, laughing, and enjoying themselves really made this whole journey completely worth it," Curtis said.
His wife Lindsay even got a chance to chat with actress Sarah Jessica Parker.
It is their 6-year wedding anniversary and he called it the best gift he could give his wife.
She's a huge fan of Parker's.
He says it earned him the best husband award 2016
