Since Michael Strahan left Live with Kelly and Michael, we’ve all been anxiously waiting to see who Kelly Ripa’s next co-host will be. While a permanent replacement is chosen, the show is holding a competition for a non-celebrity guest to host for a day.

Dena Blizzard, a former Miss New Jersey and the genius comedian behind viral hit “Chardonnay GO,” is one of 20 finalists. Through October 9, fans can vote for their favorite finalist video online. The voting will narrow the finalists down to 10, and from there, five will travel to New York for a live audition. The winner will host the October 21 show!

Currently, the comedian is stuck in Miami to brave Hurricane Matthew. Stay safe and good luck, Dena!
