Kelly Ripa Tries To Avoid Getting Wet In Jimmy Fallon's 'Pop Quiz'
On The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, you can't hold a simple pop quiz. No, you have to give your celebrity guest a dunce cap with a spike on the end of it and sit them beneath a balloon with four gallons of water inside.
That's what Kelly Ripa was faced with when she visited the show and had to face off against Jimmy in a battle of "pop" (get it?) culture. With their dunce caps on (and a raincoat for Kelly), the two sat in chairs that would be lifted every time the other contestant answered a question correctly – or go their question wrong. The first to pop the balloon above them loses.
Jimmy's announcer Steve Higgins MC-ed the quiz, asking some tough questions such as, "What was the name of Alice's boyfriend on The Brady Bunch?" and "What's the drink of choice for Jeff Bridges' character in The Big Lebowski?"
Throughout the game Ripa claimed the show was rigging the game against her, whether it was the questions asked or how far her chair was being raised. However, she held her own with some difficult pop culture questions, and Jimmy embarrassed himself when he didn't know how the single-season sack leader is in the NFL (he sits next to Kelly on her show).
You'll have to watch the video to see who wins – but we'll tell you that both of them get very wet.
