8:22 am
$37,000 in debt. >> you'll walk us through it before and after you borrow. what do we need to know? >> you have to act sooner than last year. the free application for federal student aid is coming out october 1st. "the new york times" is reporting that some schools may move up their aid deadlines. whether they do or not, get on it asap. some aid once it's gone is gone. >> what else? >> once you know that you are going to be borrowing, you want to go for federal loans first and private loans second and that's just because the interest rates on federal loans are generally lower and once you are going into repayment, there are a lot of programs that can make your life a lot easier. >> if you can borrow all federal, you should. >> absolutely. >> then check out commercial loans. >> if you're going commercial, new discounts to be aware of. wells fargo teamed up with amazon giving half point reduction. discover is giving 1% rebate on the cost of your loan if you get

reparmr repayment, whether you should refinance, if you decide you're going to refinance your loans, do research. there are a lot of options out there. finally, you want to make sure that you pick the right job or employer. >> does that mean the one that pays you the most? >> that certainly helps. there are some employers now like pwc and fidelity and common bond that have made student loan repayment an employee benefit. they help you payback your loans. more employers will get into this in the coming years. something to look for. also, a quarter of kids in this country work in jobs where they qualify for public loan forgiveness. this means you do this kind of a job for ten years, the rest of your loans will be wiped away. these are only federal loans. you want to make sure that if you're in this, you are registered. >> ten consecutive years? >> it doesn't. for med students that work in not for profit hospitals, this is an amazing thing.
8:25 am
>> you say don't defer life even if you have that student loan debt. what do you mean? >> make sure you put money into your 401(k) and pay down high interest rate credit card debt. return on your money you get from doing these things rather than rushing to pay off student loans faster is better. >> pay off credit card debt because interest rates are higher. >> and in 401(k) you get the match. >> pay the commercial loans first. okay. thank you so much. you can find all of jean's advice on today.com and we'll head outside to al. >> thank you so much, savannah. you know, we got our garden on the go. we'll put the fruits of our labor onto the plaza and cook up a fantastic meal for you. it's all coming up. first, your local news and weather. i love this truck!

9:01 am
shooter turned out to be false. we can't have him here. this is the best way to have billy bush. where you put him in a tv monitor. >> it's virtual billy. >> that's right. >> just bring him over. >> it's like we can move you anywhere we want. do you feel dizzy from the movement? >> i smell a lot better this way too. it's been a long night, folks. >> what happened? tell us about it. >> so i'm at l.a.x. last night. i went to take the redeye last night. i get to the airport. i think this is one of those things where we've seen for a lot of people you see it on tv, you see it in the news, and you think this will never happen to me. i won't be caught up in this. all of a sudden i'm in terminal 4 american airlines. i was watching espn. had time for a fast beer at that bar right there. i sat down. all of a sudden i paid and i'm walking out and a stampede of people are running in shear
9:02 am
terror at me. a bomb is going to go off. something is happening. didn't immediately think gunshots. i'm asking everybody and this woman says someone has a gun. i turned around. i ran right back into that restaurant. i went straight back into their kitchen. there's a woman holding her baby. there's people in tears. shear panic. and then they come over the overhead and we find out that -- we found out way later that there was not actually a shooter. they had a guy dressed as zoro that they apprehended but he was just a wacky guy. >> lester holt was there as well. he was landing. >> how long did this go on, billy? >> it went on for hours. they had to take everybody, every passenger had to be emptied out of the terminals and then they had to go through tsa screening again. at that point i said it doesn't matter. i'll never make it to the show on time. i got back in a cab and hopped in bed with my wife and my
9:03 am
little one who has her first day of school today. >> worked out anyway. >> i understand you got a tattoo. >> i did. this is controversial parenting here. i'll have to -- tamron you told me that -- >> i have tattoos. yeah. >> my daughter, josie, turned 18 on friday. why i came back to l.a. she said, look, i want to get a tattoo. what kind? she said right on the wrist a little cross. the beautiful part, you, me and mom, that's the little cross. very small. this is the most painful process in the world. >> that's one of the most -- that wrist area and your ankle are two of the roughest spots that you can get as well. you have some other ones but those are on the list. so the whole crew got it. >> there it is.
9:04 am
>> very nice. >> a family bond. i like it. >> now the other ones, we have a 15 year old and 11 year old and when they're 18, they can decide if they want to join us. >> what if your 15 year old says i want a body piercing. let's all get a body piercing. when she turns 18. >> when she turns -- i guess there's nothing i can do. i won't pay for it. >> you have to do it. >> what's the difference between a tattoo and body piercing? i'm just saying. >> has to be within your own comfort zone. i'm comfortable as a body piercing as of yet. that may change. >> i can see you with a belly button thing. >> i cannot see that nor do we -- >> you won't actually lay eyes on it. tamron, u.s. open, you played tennis with andy murray. i'm jealous about that. did you beat him? >> of course i did.
9:05 am
you know me. you were out at adventure land with me. >> it was not on a tennis court. >> andy murray is the sweetest guy. i was out friday. they work hard to bring tennis to girls. the numbers are still very low when it comes to girls being exposed to tennis programs. they invited me out. why are you laughing, billy? >> the outfit is on point. >> our wardrobe department -- it had a nike logo. so they covered it "today" show logo because we can't endorse. andy was so sweet. he brought out two kids. we played partners. so my partner, this really sweet boy. i turned to him and said are you excited that i'm your partner? he froze. no. look of fear like why did i get
9:06 am
you and not andy murray? i tried my best. i can at least say that. >> that's all that matters. >> as two dads, i would think that certainly that's the advice you give the girls, right? try your best. >> do your best. that's why we're so excited about the success of the roker burger. shake shack and i did our best. we did our best. and in fact, all across the country the roker burger sold out. they ran out of roker burgers. >> i single handedly shut down the one in battery park. i shutdown one location. >> we're thrilled. it helped no kid hungry, which is great charity that helps fight childhood hunger. the folks at shake shack could not have been nicer and folks tweeting that they ran out were very understanding and some folks said they drove 25 miles to get their roker burger and they couldn't get it. >> any chance this can come back for a limited time?

it's like the mcrib. if the demand is high, can't we do that? >> that's a good idea. >> this is funny i'm looking back at you, without your man spread i feel like i'm half you. >> very much alive but in hiding. >> it's much more comfortable here. >> i got to tell you, i like waist up. >> i think we send top half of you back here and leave bottom half back in l.a. >> you're like that character from the '80s. you're all head. >> leave the man spread at home. the genius of the roker burger often times is a terrible tossup for me whether i want to have pulled barbecue or if i want to have a burger. the fact that you combined the two for an ingenious creation for a fabulous cause means it must come back. i searched in the airport for it. i'm one of the people that did not get a roker burger. it needs to come back. >> some folks have said it's like a backyard barbecue in your
9:08 am
mouth. you have the grill. you have the hamburger. barbecue. pulled pork. everything. cheese. >> the cheese was amazing. but bottom line is, billy, you're right we need to campaign. shake shack has been so wonderful and thrilled to team up with you. >> we'll find out how many we sold. >> we had one serious night last night, guys, at the vmas. i know we all watched. lots to talk about coming up from beyonce's stunning ensem e ensemble. i wonder if tamron will agree about if britney spears delivered. >> what about dr. oz? we have dr. oz. >> dr. oz will be making a house call. >> he's going to take our waist see me. see me. don't stare at me. see me. see me. see me to know that psoriasis is just something that i have. i'm not contagious.

9:32 am
i had this fixed up. there it is. there. it's really bad blood pressure. once you have a hole in your artery, you have to fix it. what's the best way to fix a hole? you use plaster. unfortunately the body's plaster is something called cholesterol. you take cholesterol and slather this on there and you get not appealing material and over time it begins to look like plaque. >> that's lining your blood vessel. >> we need to cut out salt. >> pressure, stress, number one problem we find in our surveys is probably the biggest driver. being short-term stressful environment like doing the show here or exercising raises your blood pressure but long-term stress you can't get away from it doesn't cause this plaque buildup. don't want that inside of you. >> waist line and why is waist measurement so important? >> the other way of dropping your blood pressure is to drop
9:33 am
your waist. hold on. there's a lot of stuff including squeezing of your kidneys which is responsible for regulating your blood pressure. your body will raise the blood pressure. men don't weigh themselves and women weigh too much. your waist size is the most accurate technique. everyone at home listen carefully. men over the age of 40, we take the belt and put it down there. >> still wearing a size 32. >> 28 over here, baby. >> the sweet spot is take a simple measuring tape around your hips. up to your belly button there. suck it in now. you're 27. 27 inches is the number you have to remember. it needs to be less than half your height. just to put numbers on it. for men it should be less than 40 inches. for women less than 35 inches. that's the rule of thumb. easy to follow. it works for kids.
