GOOD Morning America’s Robin Roberts has left fans shocked after she did a terrifying bungee jump in New Zealand.
Robin, 62, is currently in the stunning island country filming for the popular breakfast show – and she couldn’t resist getting an adrenaline rush.
The TV anchor made a “once-in-a-lifetime” jump from New Zealand’s Sky Tower, which is the tallest building in the Southern Hemisphere.
In a GMA clip shared on Twitter, Robin can be seen getting ready for experience as she told viewers: “So, when in the birth place of bungee, you’ve gotta take a leap!”
Dressed in a bright orange all-in-one, she narrated the clip and said: “My heart beat heavy as we head up the lift, the reality of it all sinking in,” and added that she’s “good with heights”.
Robin confirmed that she was venturing 53 stories up and would be 630 feet in the sky as she prepared to jump.
“It’s just like a vertical zip line,” a member of staff told her as he checked her harness one last time.
“Oh my gosh, this is happening!” Robin shouted as she stepped out onto the ledge, before referencing her GMA co-stars Michael Strahan, Lara Spencer, and George Stephanopoulos.
“I know there was a lot of trash-talking back in the studio, Lara and Michael they were going back and forth, George had my back the entire time,” Robin said.
“With adrenaline flowing in my veins, there’s no backing out from here,” she added as she stepped forward and prepared to drop.

Describing it as “a once-in-a-lifetime thrill”, Robin admitted she was “elated with my feet firmly planted back on the ground”.
As she hugged a member of staff once she’d landed, Robin told her: “Oh my gosh, that was so incredible! That was living more and fearing less! I’m really feeling like I can do anything!”
The clip then cut back to Robin speaking to her co-hosts live as they hosted GMA from the studio in New York.
“Immense, immense, immense thanks to everyone involved, the security checks are through the roof but that fall was no joke!” she said.
As George asked her what the 11 seconds of the fall was like, Robin replied: “It’s the first three seconds of the 11 because it goes against human nature.
“You’re standing on the edge and I was taking these little baby steps and human instinct is not to let go!
“So, it wasn’t the most dignified jump but I feel good about it,” she added as Michael chimed in and joked: “I dunno if you jumped or if he pushed you!”
“Proud of you, Robs!” Lara told her as Robin thanked her co-hosts and revealed she wouldn’t be doing the bungee ever again.
Viewers were certainly impressed with Robin’s jump and took to Twitter to comment.
“Wow I’m happy that was you and not me! I jumped with you virtually and heart was racing! Good for you!” one person said.
Another wrote: “ROBIN!!! I was cheering & crying!! What an absolute AMAZING & BRAVE moment!”
A third person tweeted: “That was awesome, @RobinRoberts. Better you than me!! You did it! Bravo and am bowing down.”
Robin’s bravery comes just days after she shared a cryptic message on her Instagram about “suffering” and “depression”.
On Tuesday, Robin shared a Wednesday wisdom video since it was already Wednesday in New Zealand.
She is currently there with her partner, Amber Laign, and her GlamFam.
Robin stood in front of a glass sliding door, which showed off a lake behind her.
The TV star thanked everyone for tuning in and then began the morning message and prayer.
“There are levels you can only reach by going through difficult times. Don’t get stuck in the suffering,” she read.
“Don’t settle for the depression, thinking that you are lost in life. Don’t let that setback in your finances convince you that you are always going to struggle.
“Keep an attitude of faith and go through it. Keep believing when every thought is telling you it’s never going to change.
“Keep declaring God’s promises, when it seems like it’s not doing any good. That difficulty is not there to defeat you. No no. It is there to promote you.”
Robin ended: “You’re not just going to come out. You’re going to come out what?”
“Stronger,” her GlamFam answered.
“And better,” Robin responded.
The GMA host then ended the video with the prayer and told everyone to “be a blessing”.
Robin posts the morning message and prayers every morning before she appears on GMA.
However, in recent months, her messages have been more cryptic since the affair scandal between her co-hosts, Amy Robach and TJ Holmes came to light.
