Never mind his status as Fergie's husband, Julianne Hough's love interest in Safe Haven, or overall sex symbol. Josh Duhamel didn't get the gig to host 26th annual Kids' Choice Awards for those adult-ish reasons.

"Josh has come out to play before for Kids' Choice and as a previous 'best arm fart' winner we know he'll do what it takes to be a great host," the show's executive producer said in a statement, via E! News. "We promise this year will deliver the special one-of-a-kind surprise-filled slimefest for which our annual telecast is famous."

Will Smith hosted the show last year. Previous hosts include Rosie O'Donnell, Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz, Ben Stiller, Justin Timberlake, Jack Black, Dwayne Johnson, and Kevin James.

Watch the 2013 event March 23 at 8 p.m. on Nickelodeon.
