Sunrise’s Kochie horrified to learn about co-hosts’ nighttime habits: ‘Icky’

Sunrise host David ‘Kochie’ Koch was shocked to learn that he is the only team member who showers at night.

The topic sparked a fiery debate between the breakfast show panel earlier this week when discussing a list of questions one should ask their partner before getting married.

“‘Do you shower before going to bed?’, I think that’s a big one,” Kochie said when suggesting other questions to add to the list. “Some people don’t!”

It didn’t take long for co-hosts Nat Barr, Edwina Bartholomew and Mark Beretta to each confess that they only shower in the morning, leaving Kochie horrified.


The 65-year-old went on to explain that he showers both at night and in the morning, which Nat and Eddy deemed a “waste of water”.

“No, they’re quick showers and I don’t need to wash my hair,” he replied. “I just like to be clean!”

Despite his colleagues taunting him for not being “green” like the rest of them, Kochie continued to be baffled by their showering habits.

“So you go all day and have all the grime and get into your jammies and get into bed dirty?! Do you do a flannel wipe anywhere?” he queried.

However, Nat clarified that she showers before bed if she’s been exercising but not if she’s “had a clean day”.

While the conversation went for so long on Tuesday morning that they had to drop the sports segment, the panel brought the topic up again the following day.

Sunrise consumer correspondent Shaun White mentioned the debate during a segment about purchasing a new mattress, joking that your mattress will last longer if you shower before bed.

“There you go! It’s not just hygiene!” Kochie remarked.

“If you weren’t watching us yesterday, I’m the only one on the team who has a shower before bed, which I found a bit icky on behalf of everyone else.”

“Hang on, I’ve just got to find the medal that I got for you,” Nat quipped.
