The appointment was announced on Tuesday evening on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, which was attended by the 57-year-old actor. His reaction to the news was: "It's a joke, right? I've always been a bridesmaid!" The actor meant that in previous editions he became a "finalist" but never received the title. Dempsey added: "I completely forgot about it and never thought about being in this position. So my ego is fine."
