Who Knew? Famous Homes Trivia
Kathie Lee & Hoda played a round of Who Knew? trivia, and the theme was famous houses in television, music, and movies. As usual, Kathie Lee was across the street with Today Show fans, while Hoda was in studio. She was joined by Kevin O’Connor, host of This Old House and Ask This Old House.
Fans who answered correctly won a gift card, while those who answered incorrectly “won” Kathie Lee’s CD. How many can you guess correctly?
