George has been out the whole week, as he and his family have gone on vacation.

Whit has filled in for George since Monday and fans seem to love him.

Aside from being a substitute anchor, Whit usually hosts the weekend edition of GMA.

On Tuesday morning, he posted photos of him beaming at the desk on Instagram.

The host captioned it: “Always a blast joining the team in studio on @goodmorningamerica!”

In the photos, and all week, he has sat next to regular hosts, Robin Roberts and Michael Strahan.

George will most likely return next week, but fans are not in any rush for him to come back.


Fans took to the comments of his Instagram post and asked him to be the permanent host of GMA.

“The weekday morning show looks good on you! You are meant to be at the Big Desk!” wrote one fan.

“Always enjoy watching you in the morning,” said another.

A third added: “We love him on GMA!!”

“Always a blast when you join Robin & Michael in the AM…
GMA IS THE BEST!!” commented one fan.

“I wish you were on every.single. day,” said another.

“Where you should be daily!” said one follower.

Another added: “You should be on weekdays. Upbeat personality enjoy watching when you are on.”


GMA fans didn’t have to wonder about George’s whereabouts for too long, as his wife, Ali Wentworth, posted a photo of them on vacation on Sunday.

In the snap, George and his kids were seen relaxing on a boat in front of a very picturesque background.

The former Democratic advisor was wearing a white T-shirt and beige khaki shorts as he rested his head on a bright orange life jacket and enjoyed a nap.

One of his daughters was laying between his legs, also using a life jacket as a pillow, while their other child lay opposite them with a baseball cap covering her face.

Ali captioned the post: “All Sundays should feel like this,” but she didn’t confirm their location.

Some of her followers commented on the photo, with one person writing: “Aww, so sweet!”

Another said: “Heaven,” while someone else simply left a red heart emoji.
