Michael Strahan is the new Rocket Man!!!
The ‘GMA’ host just revealed a secret … that one Jeff Bezos gave him a ring not too long ago and invited him to hit a ride into space on the Amazon founder’s Blue Origin rocket.
Michael says it took about a nanosecond to say yes … after being super inspired being on hand for a previous launch.
Here’s the thing about Bezos — he’s like one of the best P.R. guys in P.R. even though he’s not really in P.R. He’s using every trick in the book to grab attention away from Musk and Branson. This time … Bezos’s rocket is flying the daughter of Alan Shepard — the first American who ventured into space — and a father/son duo. And, of course, there’s Michael.
Strahan will blast off December 9th and there’s lots of training to do. He says he’s headed to the Blue Origin facility for a week-and-a-half of training. So far, he’s only met his crewmates via zoom.
Didn’t know this, but apparently astronauts on Blue Origin get some sort of stipend. Strahan’s donating his to The Boys & Girls Club.
Speaking of $$$ … M.S. didn’t say, but we’re guessing he’s getting a free ride.
Bezos, as you know, has already flown aboard his rocket, as has William Shatner. So who’s next … Oprah? Make the call, Jeff!
