Hosted by Al and Craig Melvin, this portion of the show involved the chefs sharing their favorite holiday recipes.

Each of the participating guests were set up with their ingredients and finished dish on a mini table in front of them.

While the others accepted this and moved on, Al still appeared to be shocked and confused.

He remained silent as he looked all around, seemingly trying to process everything.

Then, looking directly into the camera, the weatherman tried to speak right to Craig’s mom, telling her: “Betty Jo, we’re sorry for Craig. It’s a lovely picture. It’s a great article.

“And you’re gonna be here a long time. There was no reason for him to bring that up.”

Craig replied: “I’m just saying, she–”

But Al furiously interrupted: “No! There’s no reason! Don’t put that out there!”

Craig ignored him and continued to show off the magazine issue to his other co-stars, but Al wouldn’t let it go and rhetorically asked: “What is wrong with you?”
