The perfectly-mulleted one was asked on "First Take" how he manages to look so young in a predictably wacky and off-the-cuff moment.
The problem is that Melrose's answer was, to put it mildly, unpredictable.
"Chicken s---," he said.
A somewhat surprised host Jay Crawford tried to give Melrose a chance to clarify what he had to assume was a slip of the tongue.
"What's that," he asked.
Melrose, without a beat, said "chicken s---" again.
Dana Jacobson apologized for the naughty words later in the broadcast because Melrose was presumably employing his unsanitary beauty ritual somewhere else.
