Behold Jon Frankel, whose machismo as a regular "Today Show" correspondent so blew Matt Lauer off the screen - and blew up Katie Couric and Ann Curry's skirts - that he was almost never seen on that program again:
On a "Where In The World Is Matt Lauer" segment where Matt was fly fishing out West the camera cut to Frankel, in a tight t-shirt with bulging forearms and biceps galore, reporting on some extreme mountain climbing sport with a trail guide. Couric and Curry reporting back in the studio were visibly aroused, giggly, and made somewhat catty comments comparing Lauer to Frankel. When Frankel made it to the summit and high-fived the guide and let out a big alpha male, frat boy "whoop!" both anchorwomen practically creamed their panties on-air. No exaggeration. Soon the hunky Frankel was never seen again on "Today." I always thought that Lauer torpedoed Frankel's career at NBC and/or orchestrated his move to "another network."
Be sure to include "Jon" in your "Frankel" shirtless image search or you'll wind up with Bethenny. Yuck.
