Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager, the co-hosts of “Today with Hoda and Jenna,” engaged in a lighthearted and humorous discussion about the proper way to wash feet and shave in the shower during one of their episodes.
The topic was introduced by Arianna Davis, the editorial director of the “TODAY” show, who joined the duo as a guest. She asked whether it’s necessary to wash your feet specifically while taking a shower. This question sparked an ongoing debate as to whether people should go down to their feet and thoroughly wash them during their shower routine.
Hoda Kotb, aged 48, was the first to respond, expressing that she doesn’t usually bend down to wash her feet as everything is already rinsed off and cleaned during her shower. Jenna Bush Hager, 41, agreed with Hoda’s response but playfully inquired if Hoda bends down to shave her legs.
In response, Hoda shared that she puts her leg up to shave, indicating that she doesn’t necessarily bend down for that purpose. This led Jenna to suggest that if Hoda can lift her leg to shave, she could also use the same technique to scrub her feet. The two co-hosts continued their lighthearted banter throughout the segment.
Later in the conversation, Hoda brought up the question again, asking Jenna if she washes below the knee while showering. Jenna candidly responded with a “No,” but mentioned that water splashes in that area, so she shaves her legs almost every day.
The friendly debate between Hoda and Jenna is a common occurrence on their show, where they discuss various topics related to beauty, health, lifestyle, and more. Since Jenna joined “Today” in 2019, after Kathie Lee Gifford’s departure, the two have developed a close and supportive relationship, often sharing their different perspectives on different subjects.
During a previous episode, Jenna expressed her gratitude to Hoda, crediting her for helping her secure the role on the show. She explained that she had been working hard for years, trying various roles, and had producers telling her she was a correspondent, which was her initial career path. However, with Hoda’s support and encouragement, Jenna eventually got the opportunity to co-host the show, fulfilling her desire to tell stories on a larger platform.
Overall, Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager’s dynamic and entertaining discussions continue to be a beloved aspect of “Today with Hoda and Jenna,” keeping their viewers engaged and entertained.
