Nick Lachey reaction: College GameDay guest picker trolled on social media
Nick Lachey, a former member of the band 98 Degrees, was the celebrity guest picker for Saturday’s episode of College GameDay.
The show was live from Cincinnati on Saturday morning, where the undefeated Bearcats are vying for a spot in the College Football Playoff.
Lachey is a big Cincinnati sports fan, and he seemed to know his stuff when it came to college football.
But, it doesn’t seem he was a big hit with fans of the show. As you can see below, many GameDay fans took to Twitter to troll the former boy band member after his performance:
nick lachey on gameday gotta be one of the most boring choices thus far

The most annoying thing about the city of Cincinnati except we never win anything is that somehow Nick Lachey still some how is the “celebrity” in our city… I will never understand why that dude is even a little relevant in 2021.

Ahhh… Nick Lachey on Gameday. I guess Corso told ESPN “I want it that way.” Herbstreit must’ve told them “I drive myself crazy” thinking about Cincinnati.
What? Not 98 Degrees songs, you say? Oh well, having an also-ran boy band member is fitting given the circumstances.

The CFP committee shouldn't judge Cincy by their Strength of schedule or margin of victory. But they should absolutely penalize them for having Nick Lachey, former member of the 4th best boy band in 1999, as their guest picker.
