"Do not adjust your TV screens. Yes, I got my hair cut," he said. Kelly wasted no time in rubbing his buzzcut, saying, "I’ve never rubbed an actual chinchilla, but I suspect this is what it feels like."

Why did Mark Consuelos cut his hair? It was for a TV role.

During the show, Mark answered fans' questions about why he cut off his locks. He explained that he usually cuts his hair every few years anyway, but this time, it was for a bigger reason.

"Yeah, I got a TV job,” Mark explained. “A role in a pilot ... They said, ‘Can you cut it short?’ And I said, ‘How short? Military?’ And they said, 'Military.'"

Despite the haircut's name, however, Mark mentioned that he will not actually be playing someone in the military. However, that's all he has shared to the public — and, seemingly, his wife.

"I've been trying to get intel out of him ... you are so cagey about details that I'm not unconvinced that you are also, like your parents, in the CIA," Kelly said to Mark, garnering a laugh from the audience.

So, while we don't know any details about Mark's new role at this time, it seems that he'll be portraying someone with a very specific look — one that fans don't seem to be particularly fond of.

"Mark, please let your hair grow out," one fan commented on his Instagram.
