Hilarious late night talk show host Conan O’Brien recently made an appearance on Andy Cohen’s “Watch What Happens Live” show. While being interviewed by Cohen, O’Brien revealed his least favorite celebrity to interview: NBC’s Al Roker.
Conan admitted his dislike of Roker during a game segment entitled “Plead the Fifth.” During this game, Conan was asked three questions and could only refuse to answer one of them.
When asked which celebrity Conan most disliked interviewing in his long career as a talk show host, he instantly paused and thought for a moment. After a few seconds, O’Brien admitted that Al Roker was just “too fake” and that he didn’t enjoy interviewing him. Conan went on to say that Roker is “too happy all the time.”
Conan also complained that it was hard to actually talk to Roker on his TV program. “I kept trying to crack him,” Conan said, “and he wouldn’t do it!”
The star TBS’ late night show Conan said that Roker was a huge backstage diva. Indeed, Conan called Roker an “absolute monster” behind the scenes. Apparently, Conan and Roker haven’t talked since their last interview years ago.
O’Brien then turned the question around and asked Andy Cohen for his worst guest. Cohen said he most disliked interviewing Mariah Carey.
The first question Cohen asked O’Brien was whether he would shag, marry, or kill three popular TV hosts: Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, and James Corden. Conan decided to kill Kimmel, shag Corden, and marry Fallon.
The last question O’Brien was asked was what he would say to Jay Leno if he ever sat next to him on a flight. O’Brien said he would probably just be watching an in-flight movie like “The Goonies” and totally disregard Leno.
O’Brien didn’t choose to “plead the fifth” on any of these questions.
