Hoda Kotb Doesn’t Know What A Cheetah Is

During a show last week, Shaina Twain and Hoda Kotb partnered up against Allison Williams and Jenna Bush Hager in a game of charades. One of the categories in the game was “animals.”

Toward the end of the round, Hoda was shown a cue card by one of the producers, detailing what she should act out. After seeing the clue, she began to make ape-like movements with her arms. The moderator of the game looked puzzled by Hoda’s movements. “What are you doing? Are you sure you know?” she asked.

Of course, Shaina Twain assumed that the Today Show host was acting out a monkey or even an orangutan. Cackling, Hoda responded to Shaina, “It’s something like that!”

“No, it isn’t!” the moderator shouted out. By this time, everyone on the set was laughing. Hoda started to act out something that resembled a cat, finally, when the time was out.

When Shaina asked what the animal Hoda was acting out was at the end of the game, she was surprised to find out that it was a cheetah. Producers and other people on the set mocked Hoda as Jenna and Allison took over for their turn.

One of the clues was “Clown” and actress Allison Williams made a noise to describe the clue. Hoda immediately butted in, yelling out, “You can’t make noise.” That didn’t stop their team from doing so though. Jenna Bush Hager made several sounds when trying to describe her clues as well.

Hoda shouted out several more times, “NO NOISE!” before telling Jenna that she’d be canceled if she made another noise. “Don’t cancel me, geez,” Jenna said. To which Hoda responded, “Disqualified.”

Fans have speculated whether or not the comments made on air between Hoda Kotb and Jenna are in jest. Many people feel that the pair might not get along behind closed doors. What do you think? Let us know in the comments!

  1. I loved the two when they started out but I’m sick of all the Middle School girls acting out. Grow up ladies.
