NEW YORK -- "America's Funniest Videos" is back with all-new episodes as nine of the season's best videos, the weekly $10,000 winners, compete to win a $100,000 cash prize.

Host Alfonso Ribeiro says that the winner from the first half of season 31 and this second half will then face off for a Disney vacation!

The show is still using a zoom wall for their studio audience, and Ribeiro says he's grateful that they bring such great energy to the show, even if they aren't with him in the studio.

He's hoping they will be able to shoot with an in-person audience or a mix of in-person and zoom next season.

"The videos are still there, the videos are the same, the videos are still funny," he said.

The show has also had a huge influx of videos and content due to people having more time at home during the pandemic.

"The uptick was huge in the amount of videos we were getting because everyone was sitting at home trying to figure out what to do," Ribeiro said. "We even made a special, the 'AFV at Home' to accommodate a few of those videos, a lot of those videos that we were getting."

Spoiler alert - he says he plans to be back for another season!

"That's what I'm being told! I don't know if they've officially picked us up but we feel very strongly about it, how about that," Ribeiro said.

Don't miss new episodes of "AFV" each Sunday night at 7 p.m. EDT on ABC!
