That Awkward Moment When A Mugshot Looks Just Like The Reporter

For a true-crime-show reporter, this has to be one of your worst nightmares.

Things got awkward on a recent episode of the BBC's "Crimewatch" when a convicted criminal's mugshot looked a little too similar to host Jason Mohammad. 

You could forgive viewers for being a tad distracted. We have to admit — we can see the resemblance. 

But many also came to Mohammad's aid, saying they couldn't see it and, oh yeah, telling him he's gorgeous. 

These awkward moments are rare, but longtime news anchors are almost bound to run into them sometime. 

"... Was there somebody that he ... Yes. In our last story ... " ABC "Good Morning America" co-host Robin Roberts joked.  

"Not a chance," co-host Josh Elliot said. 

But Mohammad was a good sport about the whole thing. He thanked people for the tweets and, thankfully, wasn't hauled off to jail afterward.
