The announcement via the television personality’s Twitter account. “I somehow convinced them to give me #DrawSomething2 first…this may be the best Mariah & Randy have ever looked,” he commented, attaching his picture of Mariah Carey and Randy Jackson (seen above), both "American Idol" hosts.

No release date has been mentioned for the title.
Ryan Seacrest, in other related news, has been set up to be the host of the “Draw Something” US game show adaptation. Now it seems right that, as a fan, he announced the sequel and “was given” the game first.
