Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie were recently chosen by Time Magazine as one of the most 100 influential people in the world, or as they explained to Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show,” “we were half of a person, together we were one person, which is really cool. We may be the only fraction on the Time 100.”
While it is slightly odd to me that two powerful women in media are only considered to make up one influential person, it makes sense when you think about the fact that they’re a team and both extremely humble and were just really excited to be at the Time 100 Gala.
Which is why the next part of the story makes a lot of sense– Savannah shared that Hoda carries a Ziploc bag to most fancy events including this event.
Hoda: Do you think carrying a Ziploc bag to an event is a good idea?
Savannah: Yeah, if you’re going to the airport.
Savannah even revealed that she borrowed multiple fancy bags from a friend, but Hoda wouldn’t carry it because she wanted to carry her Ziplock bag.
