GMA weekend host Janai Norman surprises fans with Wednesday segment as George Stephanopoulus remains absent from show

GMA weekend host Janai Norman has stepped in to replace George Stephanopoulos while he’s spending time away from the show.

Janai was introduced as she began speaking about Gwyneth Paltrow’s trial over an alleged 2016 ski crash.

She offered additional details on the case in George’s stead.

After the two-minute segment, the other anchors determined they would “see what happens” when the trial takes place.

However, they did not mention when George would be returning to the morning show.

George has been missing from his post from the past few days.

Fans were thrilled to see Janai, however, as she took over for him.

One wrote: “It’s too much loveliness first thing in the morning! @JanaiNorman @somaratheodore”

Another wrote: “@janai Norman is so damn cute @GMA. She has got the IT factor.”

A third commented: “Love, love, love Janai Norman’s hair style. Just stunning!”

The GMA anchors have not confirmed when George will return from his vacation to the morning show.

Fans seem to be pleased with the hosts who have replaced him thus far.

NO GEORGE!

Meanwhile, George was missing from GMA once again on Tuesday.

However, his wife, actress Ali Wentworth, revealed where he and his family are, in a recent Instagram post.

Robin Roberts and Michael Strahan did not sit next to George on Tuesday.

Instead, weekend host Whit Johnson was at the desk, filling in for the main co-anchor.

George was also absent on Monday, with Whit sitting in his spot then as well.

Fans wondered where George was, as he was just on the show on Friday.

And it is not clear when he will be back on the show.

His wife cleared up where he was very quickly, however.

Ali, 58, took to Instagram on Sunday and posted a photo of her 62-year-old husband with their two daughters.

In the snap, George and his kids were seen relaxing on a boat in front of a very picturesque background.

The former Democratic advisor was wearing a white T-shirt and beige khaki shorts as he rested his head on a bright orange life jacket and enjoyed a nap.

One of his daughters was laying between his legs, also using a life jacket as a pillow, while their other child lay opposite them with a baseball cap covering her face.

Ali captioned the post: “All Sundays should feel like this,” but she didn’t confirm their location.

Some of her followers commented on the photo, with one person writing: “Aww, so sweet!”

Another said: “Heaven,” while someone else simply left a red heart emoji.

George has yet to post on his own page about the vacation.

OUCH, WILLY!

Perhaps the GMA host needed some time off after being teased by one of his co-anchors last week.

Will Reeve joked that George can bench press 500 pounds, leaving his co-host stunned in an awkward moment.

When the show came back from one of its later commercial breaks, it was time for the sports-centric Play of the Day.

Michael threw it over to Will to kick off the segment, calling one of the headlines a “dream come true” for a 21-year-old.

“Yeah, Michael, feeling strong this morning, like I could bench 500 pounds!” Will had initially joked at the beginning of the portion of the show.

“Let’s get into it!” Will said before jumping into baseball news.

Later, as Will wrapped things up, Robin made a comment that he had to laugh at.

“What was that about 500 pounds, bench press?” she asked Will.

“Yeah, I feel strong!” the anchor joked back after her barb.

He then looked in George’s direction.

Will said: “I heard someone at the desk, I think it was George, can bench 500 pounds.”

George couldn’t stop laughing as he shook his head “no.”

“Or was it you?” he asked, gesturing toward Robin.

“Or maybe it was you!” he joked, looking Michael’s direction.

Robin could only laugh as she said “It’s not me!”

Michael guffawed as he exclaimed “It wasn’t me!”

George chimed in: “It wasn’t me, either.”

Michael joked: “Well, you won’t see any of us trying it now.”

DOUBLE TAKE

Last month, Ali posted another photo of her and George together and fans thought the GMA host looked unrecognizable.

She posted a picture of the both of them on Instagram.

In it, they stood side by side.

Ali had her arm around George’s neck and they stood very close to each other.

George had stubble and wind-swept hair.

He normally wears suits on TV, so fans were shocked to see him in shorts and a loosely buttoned-down shirt.

The host also did not wear his glasses, which made fans do a double take.

There was no caption on the post, but Ali did place a simple red heart emoji in the middle of them on the photo.

Many of her followers commented back with a red heart emoji and praise for the couple.
