As punishment for losing a Super Bowl bet, TV host Kelly Ripa was forced to interview George Clooney this week while wearing no makeup.

On Thursday's episode of "Live With Kelly and Michael," the 43-year-old mother of three went barefaced after losing a Super Bowl bet to her co-host Michael Strahan.

"Don't adjust your dials. There's nothing wrong with your TV. One of us is wearing makeup today, and one of us isn't," Ripa said to the audience. "Not even anti-shine. I labored under the delusion that I looked OK without makeup until I came out here and I went, 'Oh my God!'"

"You look great," Strahan said to her. "And really fresh."

"I've never lost a Super Bowl bet, ever, in my life," Ripa replied. "So imagine: A, losing, B, losing and you can't wear makeup and C . . . what's C?"

"George Clooney is here today," Strahan deadpanned. "She can't wear makeup for George Clooney."

"Which really only punishes George Clooney, who's a national treasure," Ripa joked.

"You look great," Strahan said again. "I'm happy you lived up to your bet."

Online commenters applauded Ripa for appearing makeup-free.

"She looks good without makeup, very natural and non-synthetic looking," user "Tony" posted on E! Online. "People who say otherwise are blinded by all of the airbrushed-to-death celebrities we're accustomed to. It was brave for her to even take that bet, let alone actually man up and follow through."
