WATCH: Stroumboulopoulos vs. Stefanopoulos on Chelsea Lately
June 20, 2013By Leah Collins
In Canada, we're content to watch George Stroumboulopoulos interview just about any celebrity who'll wander through the CBC Broadcast Centre.
In the States, they like to do things the other way around. (Though they also get to watch Strombo do his thing, hosting Stroumboulopoulos, his new CNN talk show, every Friday night.) Still, since going Hollywood for his summer vacation, Stroumboulopoulos has been a guest star on the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. (Check out the video evidence.) And now, he's also swapped one-liners with Chelsea Handler.
Strombo was the lead guest on her Wednesday night episode of Chelsea Lately, where he admitted his undying love for Betty White and revealed how he celebrated his 40th birthday. (It involves sharks and skinny dipping at Venice Beach.)
You had to watch the original broadcast to catch that particular story, so we'll just share this CBC-referencing tidbit Strombo shared during his interview.
Handler, not being Canadian and whatever, confessed she didn't know who Strombo was when he was booked for the show. She mistook him for another TV type, Good Morning America's George Stephanopoulos.
"You know you're not the only one who thinks that," Strombo replied.
That mix-up even happens on the set of George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight. Watch Strombo tell the story:
