On the latest instalment of Good Morning America, he was joined by his co-star TJ Holmes, who led a segment on a Jeopardy winner's new streak.

The comment had many in the studio laughing, including George, who could just look on and hilariously respond with: "You had a good year of it!"

The two have a loving bond but often enjoy good-naturedly ribbing on each other, but also love to comedically declare their love for one another on social media and in interviews.
