Video: While in Charleston, Kathie Lee and Hoda decide it would be a great place to seek a good-looking, charming Southern gentleman. The ladies picked up a handful of guys on a trolley they dubbed “The Southern Charm Offensive.”

While enjoying their time in Charleston, Hoda and Kathie Lee noted that the weather wasn't the only thing hotter in the South. That's right: they were speaking of the menfolk.

With that in mind, the ladies set off to find the perfect Southern gentleman for Hoda. They loaded up an entire trolley car with cute, drawling, seersucker-clad dandies who ambushed them with a "Southern charm offensive."

Instead of one perfect gentleman, they found several dozen who took them out on the town. But were any of them a good match for Hoda? We'll never know, because KLG was the one getting all cozy with them.

"I was supposed to be looking for the guy but somebody else was doing all the flirting," said Hoda.

The lesson? Never ask Kathie Lee to be your wingman.
