Party tip: if you ever have Kathie Lee and Hoda over and you play charades, try to get on the opposing team.
No offense to our brilliant anchors, but charades may not be their strong suit, as demonstrated during Wednesday's "Get Your Game On" segment. Yet again, two lucky fans from the plaza were brought in to play games with the ladies, with predictably silly results.
The category was "TV and Movies," which you'd think they'd nail. But KLG couldn't guess what her partner, Beth, was miming (it was "Jerry Maguire"). Hoda had even more trouble with her partner, Sal, who was desperately trying to act out "Seinfeld."
"It's a guy with funny hair, and he comes into a room all crazy," said Sal, attempting to describe Kramer.
"Al Sharpton!" shouted Hoda. Her later guesses included Don King, George Lopez, and Jay Leno.
It was a tie (as in "nobody won.") But at least Beth and Sal both got prizes.
TODAY's Sara Haines plucks two fans from the plaza who compete in a little charades contest to see if Kathie Lee and Hoda can guess which TV shows and movies they are acting out.
Julieanne Smolinski is a TODAY contributor who has never heard of charades with talking, but to each her own.
