REBECCA Jarvis suffered a major blunder on Good Morning America.
On Tuesday’s show, she spoke about how Weight Watchers is in the market to make an anti-obesity drug and stumbled over her words.
“This morning, Weight Watchers, the brand best known for helping people lose weight through a points system, placed a multi-million dollar bet on the obesity drug business,” Rebecca said in a voiceover .
She went on to say that the company has partnered with Sequence, a telehealth program that could allow doctors to give patients popular medications like Ozempic.
The GMA correspondent went on to speak about the shortage of the drug.
As the B-roll ended, the camera went back into the studio to Rebecca as she continued to discuss the topic.
She said Best Buy has struck a deal with Atrium Health, where they will start a “hospital/at-home program” with the Geek Squad.
“You go to the patients’ homes, set up the technology, then it remotely monitors a person’s heart rate, blood sugar levels, oxygen levels and other vital signs,” she stumbled over her words.
Rebecca recovered quickly and ended the segment by saying home medicine was at an all-time high since the pandemic.
The GMA star usually fills in for Michael Strahan or one of the other hosts if one of them is absent.

This time, however, all three main presenters were there, so we were only there to cover additional stories.
Ahead of her on-air blunder, Rebecca’s co-host celebrated a major milestone for her last week.
Robin Roberts and Lara Spencer congratulated her on the success of The Dropout.
During a recent GMA segment, Lara took some time out to yell at Rebecca.
Lara announced: “We have to mention another big winner this weekend: Rebecca Jarvis.”
She continued, “The show you created and executive produced, The Dropout, won Best Limited Series at the PGA Awards. Congratulations!”
Rebecca was happy about the praise and thanked Lara.
She replied: “I mean such an amazing team that put The Dropout together at ABC News with Searchlight and Hulu and of course I missed the actual celebration because my daughter’s kid had a birthday this weekend so we called the kid gym.”
Robin chimed in, “Well deserved, however you did it.”
Rebecca thanked everyone for their support.
She later also took to Twitter to thank Lara for the congratulatory message.
She wrote: “Thank you @LaraSpencer – grateful for you and my @GMA family and the team at The Dropout!”
Rebecca has become a familiar face at GMA, especially when Michael has been away for a while.
The 41-year-old is ABC News’ chief correspondent for business, business and technology.
She is also the host, creator and editor-in-chief of the weekly show Real Biz with Rebecca Jarvis.
Aside from The Dropout, GMA also hosts the podcast No Limits With Rebecca JArvis.
Rebecca was also a finalist on The Apprentice season four.
But it seems like she’s spending more time with her GMA family and becoming a regular on the show.
