Before we headed to the kitchen with Michael Strahan, we got a behind-the-scenes glimpse at his shoot for People Magazine. Channing Tatum may be the Sexiest Man Alive, but Michael was a close second in his Magic Mike themed shoot. Michael tried out a few different looks, including a sexy construction worker. As he warmed up on stage, the clothes began to come off; at the end, it was just Michael, his construction boots, and of course, his signature gap!
