Can you recall your most embarrassing moment?

During the Wednesday, March 24 episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Good Morning America's Robin Roberts shared an unforgettable incident that happened to her as a college journalist.

"My first big interview, I was still in college, and I was quite nervous—how can I make this—I wet myself," Robin revealed. Host Ellen DeGeneres quipped, "You spilled water on yourself?"

Robin said with a laugh, "Oh yes, I'll go with that," before adding, "I wish. No, it was like cleanup on aisle one after I did the big interview."

The award-winning journalist explained that she was so nervous and was worried about making a good impression. "And I think I really did," she joked. "Remembering it after all this time, but yes. I can't believe I've gone this long with knowing you and being on your show and haven't shared it until now."

Ellen replied, "Well I'm glad I asked the question. Don't you feel free now? Don't you feel like we're closer?" Robin cupped her mouth and got closer to the camera as she said, "I feel relieved." LOL!

Ellen followed up and asked if the interviewee knew that Robin had wet herself, but the skilled reporter shut the inquiry down and said, "There will be no follow-ups. There will be no follow-ups to this, but it was pretty hard to not notice. Let's put it that way."

During the interview, the GMA host also explained why she hasn't been a guest host of Jeopardy! following the passing of Alex Trebek in November 2020.

"First of all, boy, Alex Trebek. Just enjoyed meeting him over the years. I mean, he was just—in so many ways—just a beacon of hope," Robin began. "But I knew I was not destined to be a guest host because I was on Celebrity Jeopardy—I was so bad as a guest."
