“I’ve dated somebody who was so incredibly good-looking, that next to him, you feel like… I feel like you’re not seen,” Hoda said while discussing Chris Evans’ appointment as People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive.
She added both she and Jenna have dated the “man of the hour” type, and that “For all the girls who have dated the hot, hot guy, that is tricky.”
“That’s the feeling you get, you feel invisible, like you’re not seen. I feel like that’s what happens,” she explained.
The mom-of-two and former fiance Joel Schiffman broke up earlier this year after eight years together.

At the time, Hoda called Schiffman a “great guy,” and said the pair decided they were better as friends and parents than as a couple.
She told Jenna on TODAY: “It’s not like something happened. They say sometimes relationships are meant to be there for a reason, or a season or for a lifetime. And I feel like ours was meant to be there for a season.”
Hoda and Jenna recently dropped a major announcement about the morning show.
The pair revealed that they would be welcoming back a studio audience.
