The host for the 2013 Nickelodeon Kid’s Choice Awards was announced today, and it’s someone young and fresh-faced who has his finger right on the pulse of Young America, I’m talking of course about Josh Duhamel. Wait, what? From Entertainment Weekly:

The star of Transformers: Dark of the Moon on Wednesday was named host of Nickelodeon’s 26th Annual Kids’ Choice Awards, which will be broadcast from the Galen Center in Los Angeles on March 23. Duhamel, who starred on the NBC drama Las Vegas, has already been inducted into Nickelodeon’s Arm Fart Hall of Fame and showered in green goo.

Yeah, no, we already knew that, but it doesn’t answer the question: what? Obviously, Mr. Duhamel’s placement in Nickelodeon’s ARM FART HALL OF FAME does speak to a certain jeunesse, but I’m not even sure ADULTS know who Josh Duhamel is, much less our nation’s children. He was on the NBC drama Las Vegas? Oh perfect! He’s basically the next Justin Bieber. I’m not saying that I know who SHOULD host the 2013 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards. I’m as out of touch as, well, Josh Duhamel. They should probably just be hosted by an iPhone 5? Oh well. Maybe Josh Duhamel actually is the most obvious and teenerific choice. Maybe I am the one who doesn’t know anything, AS USUAL. Either way, JustJared asks the tough questions: “ARE YOU EXCITED to see Josh Duhamel host the 2013 Kids Choice Awards???”

  1. For some strange reason, when this news came out I was picturing Timothy Olphant which is silly and I can’t explain it but nonetheless, I was thinking it was so weird and that none of the kids would get the Justified references.

  2. I’m live-streaming the Kids Choice Awards from NAMBLA’s headquarters.

  3. jeunesse–is my new favorite word. My goal at work this afternoon is to use it at least three times in casual conversation. I’ll update you later on what kind of fun blank looks I get.

  4. I’m sorry to say I know Josh Duhamel very, very well from his years as the sexy but duplicitous Leo on All My Children (wildly popular with kids).

  5. So I went to his IMDB page to hunt for joke material, and it is kind of nuts. Pretty sure he updates it himself:

  6. “We didn’t like Transformers 3 either, don’t try to put that on us” – kids

  7. It’s not every day you can book the guy who plays the 4th most important human character in the Transformers movies.

  8. “Siri, who is the winner of this year’s Arm Fart?”

    “You said you were looking for a Kmart in your area. I found 2 for you.”

  9. I always see Tad Hamilton
