Danica McKellar On Today: Al Roker Misses The Point

Danica McKellar was on the Today show encouraging girls to care more about their brains than their beauty. Good thing Al Roker was there to ruin her positive message!

Danica was promoting her new book, Kiss My Math, and she was telling girls that "Attacking something that's challenging will make you stronger," so they shouldn't get too bummed out if they do poorly on a test. Her message was really getting across until Al Roker ended the segment by saying he might have been better at algebra "If my math teacher had looked like you…" Blerg. Clip above.

I love these backhanded attempts to triumph over the over-sexualization of women by... over-sexualizing them in new contexts.
