TODAY’s Sheinelle Jones has apologized to the audience as she dropped the egg she had during a special workout segment.
As part of the morning show’s Start Today workout segment, the Today 3rd Hour crew joined celebrity trainer Ngo Okafor for something a little “egg-citing”.
Sheinelle Jones and the Today crew joined celebrity trainer Ngo Okafor for a 10-minute ‘hard-boiled egg workout’NBCThe workout was meant for anyone who had 10 minutes to perform, so the Today show boiled an egg during that timeNBC
The “10-minute hard boiled egg workout” was something Ngo created that only takes 10 minutes of your day.
“If you have 10 minutes, you can get a great workout.”
“Honestly, I thought we were taking eggs and squeezing them or something,” Sheinelle Jones joked.
Ngo suggested going and starting a pot of water to boil before beginning the workout, with the idea that at the end, the boiled egg would be ready to consume.
When the workout came to a conclusion, Sheinelle and the rest of the crew were rewarded with a tray of sliced hard-boiled egg.
Sheinelle grabbed an egg from the tray and started to eat it, then immediately dropped it.
“Whoops!”she exclaimed. “I dropped my egg.”
The hosts began to take the show to commercial, but Sheinelle was still worried about her egg.
“I lost my yolk! There’s a big one somewhere,” Sheinelle said as she looked around the set.
Meanwhile, Al Roker corrected Sheinelle on a silly on air mistake involving Girl Scout cookies.
As part of a Consumer Confidential segment, NBC News Senior Consumer Investigative Correspondent Vicky Nguyen stopped by to discuss what people should buy before April to save money.
In addition to tax software, Vicky suggested buying Girl Scout cookies.
Al walked over to a table of cookies and asked Sheinelle what kind she liked before handing her a bag.
“I like Samosas,” she said.
Al couldn’t help but laugh as he turned to Sheinelle and laughed, echoing her.
“Samosas?” he giggled, while Sheinelle leaned back, cracking up.
“I mean Samoas!” she said, while Al pretended to look around through the cookies.
Al teased: “I don’t think we have Samosas.”
Sheinelle couldn’t stop laughing as she tried to calm down and continue the segment.
“We called them ‘Caramel Delights’ when I grew up,” she said.
The group couldn’t stop laughing at Sheinelle’s faux pas as they continued the segment.
They munched on Girl Scout cookies as the show continued.
ON AIR OOPS
Meanwhile, Al and Sheinelle forgot how to use their words while snacking on a new ice cream flavor.
The hosts had a taste test during a recent PopStart segment.
Jeni’s Spendid Ice Cream released a limited edition flavor based on the Apple TV+ series Ted Lasso.
The Today hosts dug into a pint of the “Biscuits with the Boss” flavor, which combines shortbread cookies and buttery sweet cream ice cream as well as sea salt.
As the hosts tasted the ice cream, they were immediately at a loss for words.
“Oh my God…ohhh. Oh,” said Al, losing himself in the flavor.
Sheinelle was equally excited, as she stammered: “Wait a minute. Wait.”
They traded off “mmms” and other exclamations.
Carson Daly, watching his co-hosts eat the ice cream, encouraged them to tell viewers what they were tasting.
He exclaimed: “Describe it! This is television!”
Sheinelle did her best to explain why she enjoyed the ice cream: “Imagine the yummy parts of the shortbread.”
Al agreed: “The base is fantastic.”
The hosts couldn’t get over how much they loved the ice cream flavor.
WORKING TOO HARD?
Meanwhile, Al returned to work in full force despite fan concerns that he should take it slow after his health complications last year.
The Today star has not held back with appearances on several different news programs in recent weeks.
Now fans have begged Al, 68, to take it easy after he shared behind-the-scenes footage from NBC Nightly News.
The TV personality took to his Instagram feed on Thursday night to give his followers a weather update.
The meteorologist filmed selfie-style as he walked through the backstage area of NBC studios in New York.
Al wore a plaid suit, gold tie, and matching gold flower pin as he explained current conditions to his fans.
“Well good evening everybody, we are at studio 1A and getting ready for NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt.
“Lester is getting ready for the broadcast, got a lot going on today from the climate unit. We are going to be talking about tornado watches, there are tornado warnings going on right now, and we’ve got winter weather,” he explained.
“There’s going to be a very intense line of heavy snow stretching from the Great Lakes into New England.”
Al then panned the camera to the radar screen, saying: “Oh you can see right now, there’s the radar. We have several warnings going on right now, so a very very volatile situation.”
The beloved weatherman then showed off some of his co-workers manning the teleprompter ahead of the broadcast.
“One more look at Lester Holt from behind, it’s pretty good. Bye-bye,” he added.
Al captioned his post: “The latest on the severe weather and heavy snowfall across the country coming up on @nbcnightlynews with @lesterholtnbc.”
