The former football player spends most mornings buttoned up as the co-host of "Live With Kelly and Michael," but underneath all those snazzy suits is the bod that got him a role in "Magic Mike XXL." Naturally, the beefcake was happy to show it off tonight after a little bit of a tease.

After a fun opener and a 60-second look back at the year's best films, Strahan decided to quit talking -- and start stripping. He tore off his pants, showing off his absolutely massive legs (among other things).

"A little bit of nerves and trepidation is good for you," Strahan told People. "It makes you focused and on point and gets you on your game."

Looks like he found the courage backstage, because he certainly seemed comfy in his skivvies!
