Regis Philbin, Hoda Kotb, Twizzler


Who knew Regis Philbin was quite the kisser?

On Monday's Today show, the legendary talk show host decided to accept Kathie Lee Gifford's Twizzler Challenge and participate with the one and only Hoda Kotb.

Let's just say we recommend some tasty wine before you see what happens next!

"Let me look at your lips," Regis asked before admiring Hoda's beautiful face minutes before the big act. "She could swallow me. Honest to God, something's going to happen here. I've never seen lips like that."

In an effort to raise money and awareness for autism programs, the duo proceeded to share a delicious slice of Twizzlers that ultimately resulted in a big (and we mean big) kiss on the lips.

"That was pretty good. You're all right," Regis proclaimed with visible lipstick on his face. "You got a boyfriend?"

When Hoda reminded the Notre Dame football superfan that he's met the special guy, Regis didn't believe it. "Do you really? Oh, I don't like him," he joked. "You can do better than that." LOL!

The Twizzlers Challenge continues to expand across the country ever since Willie Geist started the movement with Uzo Aduba at Comedy Central's 6th biennial Night of Too Many Stars charity event.

Meredith Vieira, Matt Lauer, Lena Dunham and Allison Williams have also participated in the important cause. If all goes to plan, a few members of The Voice will be next.

"Hey @BlakeShelton and @AdamLevine--#TwizzlerChallenge #Bromance," Hoda tweeted hours after her show. Come on, dudes, it's for a good cause after all.
