It’s been a year of ‘firsts’ for Larry Emdur. The Morning Show co-anchor has starred on his first Men’s Health cover, signed up for his first appearance on a reality TV show, and now he’s endured his first spray tan.
Emdur stepped into the tanning booth yesterday in preparation for his “terrifying” Dancing With the Stars debut last night, and he seemed rather tickled by the whole process.
“What tan lines????? First ever spray tan done! In the eyes of the Australia- Asia-Transpacific Federation of Professional Daarrncers Association of Australasia I am now officially a darrrncer,” the 50-year-old captioned his before-after shot on Instagram.
Hey, Channel 7 — if you're looking to rebrand the show, we reckon Darrrrrncing with the Starrrrrs has a nice ring to it.
While the results of Emdur's tan look pretty damn good, we're more intrigued by his, um, unusual preparation method. According to Instagram, the former Celebrity Splash host received some advice courtesy of his DWTS competitor, My Kitchen Rules alumnus Ash Pollard.
"Thank you Krystal for being so gentle for my first time, and thank you for the tip about rubbing talcum powder into my private parts @ashpollard__ !!!" he wrote.
Hold up... talcum powder? Rubbed into private parts? What's with that? We've heard of exfoliating before a spray tan appointment, but this is something new. Has anyone else tried this? What does it achieve? We want to know more. (Post continues after gallery.)
