Ryan's sister, Meredith, is tying the knot soon and her multitalented brother is taking on some key roles.

"I’m the man of honor for the wedding," he said. "My role as man of honor is I stand up with the bridesmaids at the wedding. I’m not quite sure what I wear, but I stand up there with the girls. And then I plan the bachelorette weekend, which we’re going to do in Wine Country."

Given Ellen's party planning prowess, Ryan asked her advice: "What should I actually do for the bachelorette party to make it successful?"

"Strippers!" Ellen responded with no hesitation. "That’s all you need!"

"It’s a little uncomfortable for my sister," Ryan protested.

"Oh, she’ll act like it’s uncomfortable," Ellen quipped.
