Chris worked as a co-host on the Oscars’ Red Carpet Experience for its 94th awards ceremony and Chris was nothing but iconic.

He met Meghan Trainor in April 2022

Despite contrary belief that Chris and Meghan met during their childhood, that is in fact wrong. In reality, the two are just really good friends who met when Chris was hired to run Meghan’s social media and the picture of younger versions of them together was indeed false and they duped everyone. Iconic to be honest.
