Many say he is the best talk show host since Johnny Carson. Others are just glad that they don’t have to look at Jay Leno anymore.
The history of late night talk shows in America has always been illustrious. But in the recent past, with the new generation of talk show hosts struggling to keep the magic of late night TV alive, someone had to step in and revive the genre. Then along came Jimmy Fallon with his infectious energy, musically-inclined personality and genuine candor.
Almost all the celebrities on the show love him. This is evident from the way they are always ready to get down and dirty in some of the most childish games ever. But there is something about celebs behaving like kids that always manages to leave a huge grin on our faces.
So ladies and gentlemen, for your amusement, we have ranked the best celebrity games ever played on the show by Jimmy Fallon and his guests. Lean back and get ready to smile.
10. Ragtime Gals
Behold, a Barbershop Quartet singing Jason Derulo’s Talk Dirty to Me. Wait, it gets interesting. Joining the Ragtime Gals is Keyser Soze himself.
We’ve all played Charades some time or the other. But where else do you get to see multiple Academy-award winner Emma Thompson frantically trying to express a clue to Bradley Cooper?
What do you get when you put a movie star, an Olympics gold medalist and a pop icon in one room with Jimmy Fallon? Pure madness!
Pictionary is a simple game that requires you to draw a clue for your teammate to guess. But when you have horrible drawing skills like these celebs, hilarity is sure to ensue!
For this game to work, you gotta pit two Emmy-award winning talk show hosts against two talented movie stars. The results are mind-blowing!
5. History of Rap
Every once in a while, Jimmy Fallon likes to flaunt his musical chops. And who better to accompany him than Justin Timberlake. This has happened a total of four times so far, and every time the studio audience has lost its mind! And so will you!
4. Box of Lies
One would think actors would be great at lying by now. But Jimmy shows us that isn’t always true.
3. Water Wars
A deck of cards, five glasses of water, a water cannon and two humans. This can only mean war!
2. Lip Sync Battle
The Lip Sync Battle is probably the best thing that has happened to humanity. Move over Karaoke, I have better rhymes to bust! Also, Emma Stone is so fricking talented!
1. Egg Russian Roulette
A dozen eggs – 8 of them are hard-boiled, 4 of them aren’t. This is the kind of game you usually play with your drunk friends. But Jimmy upped the ante by playing it with the likes of Tom Cruise.
