'Fox & Friends' Cohost Brian Kilmeade & Guest Host Scott Brown Flunk Manhood Test

How many Fox News hosts does it take to change a tire? We may never know because on Tuesday's "Fox & Friends," two of the guys flunked this supposed test of manhood.

Cohost Brian Kilmeade and guest host Scott Brown, the former Republican senator from Massachusetts, were given tests that for reasons never fully explained were supposed to demonstrate higher levels of testosterone.

The segment started off on a positive note as Kilmeade used his hormones to tie a necktie while Brown tied a knot, according to a clip posted online by Raw Story.

But things quickly went south when they were asked by former Navy SEAL Derrick Van Orden, author of "Book of Man: A Navy SEAL's Guide to the Lost Art of Manhood," to perform the extra-manly task of changing a car tire. Kilmeade and Brown failed to put the car in park or use the emergency brake, and it rolled forward.

"Watch your feet, Elisabeth," Brown called out to co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who had been leaning on the car.

Then, the vehicle almost came off the jack. Eventually, the men gave up.

Perhaps trying to make them feel better, Van Orden gestured to passersby on the New York City street where the segment was taking place.

"If you talk to these people who are next to us out here in Manhattan, the vast majority of them don't know how to do this," he said.

Several of the people, off camera, apparently admitted they couldn't. But to be fair, they probably don't own cars: In Manhattan, just 23 percent of households have a motor vehicle.

Kilmeade, who has a history of making sexist comments (examples here, here, here and here), admitted he "kinda failed at the manhood thing."

"I'm a man in training, all right?" he said.

Kilmeade also joked about it on Twitter:
