When the question came up, Jenna immediately winced, and as Hoda said: "I say shoes on," her co-star confessed through a sigh of relief: "Shoes off…" though she admitted her confession was embarrassing.

Hoda was quick to question her about the decision, asking: "But what about the bathroom? How do you go?" to which the other host replied that she just puts the shoes back on.

When asked what she would do if she had boots or other shoes that are complicated to be constantly putting on and off, Jenna opened up about a "big mistake" she recently made.

Though they disagreed over travel etiquette, the two couldn't be closer co-stars

The two totally understood one another as they detailed the uncomfortable moment when you're flying and as your feet are getting squeezed they only expand bigger and bigger. That was definitely the case for Jenna, as she admitted that her feet were still hurting even two days later.

The two stars went to reveal what fans and the audience thought of the debate, revealing that 86% of votes sided with Hoda, believing that shoes should definitely stay on while you are on air.
