Ryan Seacrest and Simon Cowell hang out together in a pool

If you’ve ever wondered how American Idol judge Simon Cowell and host Ryan Seacrest spend their off time, wonder no more: They swim together.

It’s not really a secret that they’re actually friends, despite the on-air ribbing, endless gay jokes, and rumors. But who knew that they’d inspired a headline like this one on Just Jared? Shirtless Simon & Ryan Play Poolside.

Yes, the acerbic judge and meterosexual host are half-naked, sipping drinks, and laughing together in Miami, and since the season seven auditions were there in August, they weren’t there for the show. Thus, the mystery of what Simon is hiding under that tight black t-shirt has been solved.
