Seacrest Tracks Down Man Tanya Tried to Virtually Kiss During Lakers Game


Leave it to Tanya Rad to not only become a Lakers fan and sit “court side” virtually during one of the recent games, but also attempt to make the kiss cam with a stranger.

“I was trying to high-five him at first and then he wasn’t paying attention and then I was trying to kiss him thinking that would help and then nothing,” Tanya hilariously explained on-air after sharing the fan wall moment on her social media. “He was just laser-focused on the game.”

Turns out the mystery Lakers fan is named Robbie and he had no idea what was going on until his phone started blowing up. 

“I’m looking down at my phone watching the game and then all of a sudden, out of nowhere, I get a text from my boss out of all people,” Robbie shared with Seacrest on-air. “… He sends me a screenshot of that photo of Tanya trying to kiss me and I’m like, ‘Damn! What’s going on? Who is this woman?”

“My phone was blowing up after this photo,” Robbie added. “I got over like 100 people texting me, ‘OMG! You’re on Tanya’s IG! Kiss her back! Kiss her back!’” he hilariously added. “… I’m like, ‘Damn, who is in this room? Like Halsey was in there…”

The hilarious moment ended with the duo virtually kissing and Tanya’s boyfriend jokingly stepping in.

Watch back the on-air moment above to relive the hilarious story and to learn more about our new favorite Lakers fan, Robbie.
