Keke Palmer makes for one excellent daytime TV host. She’s funny, quick on her feet and is easily meme-able. However, the host and actress was taken aback when a guest recently asked her out live on television…right after revealing he’d hooked up with another celebrity!
During an appearance on Strahan, Sara and Keke, popular The Bachelorette contestant Mike Johnson addressed his rumored relationship with singer Demi Lovato. The two of them sparked dating rumors after he appeared on her Instagram story, but it seems things between them have fizzled out. “I made a mistake. I don’t like dating in public,” he confessed.
He then turns to Palmer, asking, “But if I were to ask you if we could go on a date in the public…” The audience roars in appluase, and a stunned Palmer promptly asks her co-hosts to change the topic. “What’s the next question?” she asks, hiding behind her cue cards. Michael Strahan playfully eggs the situation on, warning Johnson, “if you mess up, I’m coming for you.”
Palmer wrapped it up by reminding everyone she has a job to do. “Ladies, I’m at work,” she said, gesturing her co-hosts to keep the questions coming.
Palmer never gave Johnson a “yes or no” answer, but made it clear that she’s not interested when turning herself into a meme.
Of course, it wasn’t long before the internet joined in on the fun.
Sorry to this man!
