Elisabeth Hasselbeck Makes Fox & Friends Debut With Battle of The Sexes and Duck Dynasty (PHOTOS)

Elisabeth Hasselbeck had a busy first day in her new job as co-host of Fox & Friends. In addition to being welcomed by Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade with a cake, the show surprised her by having Sherri Shepherd bring presents.

Hasselbeck also got a shout out from Regis Philbin. Doocy, Kilmeade and Hasselbeck then showed segments from their visit to Duck Dynasty, which included all three wearing beards.

Sean Hannity dropped in to welcome Hasselbeck and brought up his visit to The View while Rosie O'Donnell was a co-host. Hasselbeck joked she tries to block out parts of that time. 

Fox & Friends additionally launched a week-long "Battle of the Sexes", which pits Hasselbeck and Maria Molina against Doocy and Kilmeade. The women won the first day of the five-day competition.  Check out more photos from Hasselbeck's first day on Fox & Friends and visit Fox News Insider to watch the clips.
