Ashton Kutcher’s appearance on “College GameDay” was a bit of a wash.
The actor and Iowa University alum traveled to Ames, Iowa, for the ESPN show to predict the outcome of Iowa’s upcoming football game against Iowa State. (Iowa was his selection.) Fans at Iowa State, on the other hand, ridiculed him with chants of “Take a shower!” that drowned out parts of his statements.

You’ve probably been spared the celebrity bathing discussion of recent months if you haven’t worked out why they’d do that. It all started when Kutcher and his wife Mila Kunis acknowledged on Dax Shepard’s podcast that they hadn’t properly bathed themselves or their two tiny children.
“On a daily basis, I only wash my armpits and crotch,” Kutcher said. Kunis, for one, claims she does not “wash her body with soap every day.”
When it came to their two children, now four and six years old, Kunis admitted that she “wasn’t that parent that bathed my newborns, ever” when they were infants. They now clean the kids if they “notice the filth on them,” according to Kutcher.
The comments generated a flood of jokes and discussion, with affluent and well-known people chiming in on how much their families or themselves bathe. If you’re keeping track, Jake Gyllenhaal is one of the unwashed: “I find washing to be less and less important, at times,” he told Vanity Fair.
Meanwhile, Cardi B, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, and Jason Momoa have all stated that they shower often and are unimpressed by some of the findings.
Kristen Bell previously claimed on “The View” that she and her husband Dax Shepard (whose podcast started the whole thing) “wait for the stink” while deciding whether or not their children need a bath. “I feel people need a little bit of an education on what is and is not a joke,” she told ET Online afterwards, hinting that she, Kunis, and Kutcher were all fooling around.
