GOOD Morning America’s Sam Champion won’t be returning to reality TV anytime soon and has revealed he wishes fans had kicked him out sooner.
The admission came as the morning show’s weatherman answered questions from his followers during an Instagram live video on his first day in the office.
“More reality TV shows in the future? No, I think that’s enough,” Sam said, reading the question out loud.
“I think dancing made that schedule look easy,” he added with a laugh, referring to his recent stint on Dancing with the Stars.
Sam was eliminated along with his pro partner Cheryl Burke last week.
Later in the video, the weatherman was asked if he missed the workouts he went through during the show.
“Not really, they’re tough!” Sam said.
“But I think I’ll do it after everything isn’t so sore and you know give it like four or five days.”
Sam will return along with the other eliminated contestants in the coming weeks to perform one last time for the reality dance competition finals.
For this, Sam announced that he will probably undergo the workouts and rehearsals again.
“I appreciate your votes,” he said in the Instagram video.
“Honestly, I do, especially for the first few weeks. By the third week I was like, ‘Okay, you can stop voting now.’ But thank you. I appreciate it.”
“It’s just that you know you – you’re coming in fresh, right? And then every week you have a little less gas in the tank to start and learn a new dance. So when you arrive in weeks four and five, you feel kind of brutalized.”
Sam returned to his day job weatherman for the morning show on Monday.
On his return, he offered “half a dozen” New Yorkers a bizarre apology that he may have danced in the streets upon his return to the Big Apple.
“Robin, I have to take a second to apologize to about a half-dozen random New Yorkers for maybe grabbing, dipping, and spinning on the street yesterday,” Champion said.
“But I – I just had to say it, but I have to tell them I’m sorry.”
“I wasn’t one of them!” GMA host Robin Roberts replied.
Sam too stressed the apology on Twitterand wrote, “If I happened to ‘dunk’ you on the street…sorry.”
Since leaving DWTS, Sam has opened up live videos on Instagram with his fans several times, including discussing the anxiety he suffered from on the show.
