“So what do you do for work?” Jonathan asked.
“I go back and forth between Los Angeles and here … I do some TV presenting,” Richard explained.
“I don’t watch TV,” Jonathan said.
Speaking to the camera, Richard said: "It was refreshing, but at the same time, when someone is supposed to know who I am, and they don’t know who I am. It was awkward, it was very awkward."
Jonathan Googled Richard while he was in the toilet.
“Once he worked out who I was he loosened up and I saw a fun side to him,” Richard told the camera.
You have to see it to believe it. You can watch First Dates here.
Richard took a moment to explain why he made the remark during a segment on Studio 10, insisting he didn’t mean to out Karl on television.
Speaking to Natarsha Belling, the 51-year-old entertainment reporter admitted he “feels bad” for saying the things he did but added he won’t be apologising any time soon.
“I will say it's been a year since I made those comments," Richard began. "The thing is, I do feel bad now about saying that about Karl, about his hair."
He explained how it wasn't the most appropriate time or situation to make the remark, before adding: “I think I got off light, being called a tosser, actually.”
But when Natarsha asked the entertainment guru if he was going to apologise to Karl for making the remarks, Richard immediately said no.
