Today Show hosts can’t hide their excitement

On Friday’s broadcast of the Today Show, Jenna and Hoda Kotb were amped up to play this ’80s game. They would sometimes interrupt the hot during the segment. They also suffered many blunders during the on-air segment. The pair struggled to listen to the clues and maintain their composure.

This led them to get many of the answers wrong. The hosts would yell over each other and laugh loudly as they try to get through the game. It was a rough game for everyone involved. Even the viewers at home had enough of the hosts.

Fans call out Hoda Kotb & Jenna Bush Hager

During the broadcast, Today Show fans took to Twitter to share their reaction. Most didn’t like how Hoda Kotb and Jenna behaved during the game. They called out the ladies for being rude and disrespectful. Some called the segment “awkward,” while others said it was disastrous.

  • “OMG Hoda and Jenna are the WORST game contestants ever! Sorry – I enjoy the show overall, but quiz segments are always a hyper-disaster.”
  • “Buzz in; stop talking. Guess; stop talking. Wait for Donna! And Jenna – shouting the wrong answer repeatedly will not make it correct.”
  • “Not a good sport, Hoda! You seem to have barely tolerated this game. Also, I don’t think anyone considers ‘Every BreathYou Take’ a song about stalking.”
  • “This segment got awkward.”

Losing their minds on live television

On that same day, Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager lost their minds during another segment. They even went off the script. Their colleagues modeled Halloween costumes “inspired” by the co-hosts. They walked down a fake red carpet as they wore clever designs.

The first person was dressed as “Red Carpet Hoda” which featured a red jumpsuit. They also carried a disposable bag, which Hoda Kotb uses as a purse. The next person was dressed as “Jumping Jenna” and was dressed from the time she went skydiving. Other costumes included “Hoda’s Right Wrist,” “Hoda’s Hummus Scooper,” and “Polar Plunge Hoda and Jenna.”

  1. Jenna always is talking over Hoda, guests everyone. She is way too competitive and rude and always trying to be the center of attention!

    1. yes,jenna is always talking over Hoda and is very rude.get rid of her and fine someone who is more respectful.

  2. First of all, I am a huge fan of the show, but they’ve got to chill out! Yes, Hoda and Jenna try to talk over each other, then if Donna’s on there, the lack of professionalism takes a nose-dive, for sure. My husband has commented several times about the wildly competitive problems. I think that’s the episode where Jenna commented that the game wasn’t fun, right in front of Donna! The world is so rude today. I have a choice as to what I watch, and it may change!

  3. It’s time to re-shuffle the hosts on Today! I used to love watching but now I turn on Kelly Ripa and Ryan as opposed to watching the disastrous combo of Hoda and Jena! Both totally unprofessional – when Hoda samples food on air she ends up chewing for the rest of the show. She is loud and overbearing. Jena is bearable..

  4. I used to enjoy the third hour with Honda and Jenna, but not anymore. Jenna continually talks over Hoda, dominates the conversations and even changes the subject while Honda is talking! I am impressed with Honda’s professionalism and sweet spirit. Jenna, not so much.
