The GMA star posted a video on Instagram that was originally shared on TikTok by comic Robyn Schall, who revealed the story of how she had an awkward encounter with the TV star when she was out to lunch a few years ago. In the clip, Robyn hilariously re-enacted their encounter, using a printed-out photo of Michael's face to set the scene.

She explained how on her way to the bathroom she dropped her sunglasses, only for them to land "next to the biggest feet in the world".

Upon discovering the owner of the feet was Michael, Robyn admitted that she followed him out of the restaurant. "When he left, I left and I followed him for a few blocks until there was a red light and I said, 'Excuse me, Mr. Strahan,' and he looked at me and I handed him my business card and I said, 'Nice to meet you.'

"But then I got nervous, so I just ran and then he yelled after me, 'Nice to meet you, Robyn,' so I said the only thing that popped into my head, 'You're handsome!' but then I realized how stupid that sounded so I took off!"
