The American Idol host and Vanna White are currently filming the Hawaii episodes of Season 42 of the show on Waikiki Beach, located on the south shore of Oahu. TMZ reports that the pair were seen standing ankle-deep in the water while talking to the camera when all of a sudden Ryan dove under the water in full snorkel gear. Luckily, Ryan could also stay dry when filming a few promos on land while wearing flip-flops and a Hawaiian shirt. These promos are being filmed at the Hilton Village Waikiki Beach Resort.
