Appearing from Chicago, where she's hunkered down with her fiancé, Scott Kluth, and her pups, Strawberry and Shortcake, Tinsley had two eye-popping walls behind her. On one wall, branches appeared to spread out; the other wall held a row of artistic torches.  

"I love the apartment," Andy said. "What is the thing behind you hanging down?" Glancing behind her, Tinsley said: "These are some Olympic torches back here." In fact, it turns out Scott has some strong ties to the Olympics: In 2016, he was on the Olympics Committee.

"It was fantastic!" Scott once said of his experience helping Chicago bid to host the games. "I have a long family history of Olympic fans. I got to go to Copenhagen for the 2009 Olympics. The Olympics will be coming to Chicago some day, hopefully."

As for the fixture on the other wall, Tinsley described it as: "This like, wood piece, I don't really know. It's big roots, big tree — something cool! I don't really know." 

"Well, you can play our drinking game and see if you can figure out what it is," Andy joked to his followers. See more from Tinsley's appearance in the clip above, and get another look at the "big roots" inspired sculpture, below.

Along with some pretty cool torches, Scott's apartment at the John Hancock Center also boasts jaw-dropping views from its floor-to-ceiling windows.
