A day earlier, the former Jeopardy! host had an on-air banter with her co-host and weatherman, Sam Champion as she called him out on his haircut. As reported by The Sun, the anchor joked to her colleague stating that Barney Rubble (a Flinstones character) had asked for his hair back.
Robin Roberts Isn’t Impressed By Sam Champion
The meteorologist had just returned to the show after his Brazilian vacation with his husband Rubem Robierb. However, the weathercaster badly failed to impress Robin Roberts while using sports analogies to discuss the weather. He said, “Look at this. 240 inches of snow in Mountain Mammoth, California. Now, how do I relate that to people who don’t live there? So, you know me. I fall back on sports analogies, as I always do.”
As Robin Roberts groaned off-camera seemingly unimpressed, Sam continued, “If you took a basketball hoop, and you put two of them on top of each other. Am I good, Robin? How am I doing right now?”
However, Robin didn’t approve of his attempt and said, “A little shaky.”
