12th Annual Jimmy Kimmel Live Belly Flop Competition


Our 12th annual pedestrian
belly flop competition. Every summer, we
set up a swimming pool in the back of our
theater– that’s the pool– and we invite people who
happen to be strolling by on Hollywood Boulevard to
change into a bathing suit and flop into it. My cousin Sal is out on
Hollywood Boulevard right now. Hi, Sal. How are you doing? Jimmy, how you doing? What do you look for in
a belly flopper when you’re pulling these people over? I just hope that
no one has diarrhea. That’s basically it. Well, let’s meet
some of these people who hopefully don’t have that. We don’t need
a repeat of 2012. That’s for sure.
JIMMY KIMMEL: Yes. Hi there.
What is your name? My name is Chris.
I’m from Cincinnati. JIMMY KIMMEL: Chris, are
you here on vacation? I’m actually– my son
got married in San Diego. JIMMY KIMMEL: Oh, he did.
Congratulations to you. Do you like his new bride? I love her, actually.
JIMMY KIMMEL: You do. Well, that’s great. And so you were in
the wedding, I assume? – I was.
– Did you wear that shirt to it? No. No. JIMMY KIMMEL: Would you mind
taking that shirt off for us? Not right this second, but we’d
like you to flop into our pool in our belly flop competition. Absolutely. JIMMY KIMMEL: All right. Very good. That’s a big man. It would be tough to beat Chris. Who else do you have
out there, Cousin Sal? COUSIN SAL: Come on in.
JIMMY KIMMEL: Hi. What is your name? I’m Alvina. JIMMY KIMMEL: Alvina. What kind of a name is that? It’s actually the Russian
name, but I’m from Belgium. JIMMY KIMMEL: Oh,
you’re from Belgium. Oh.
Oh. I’m sorry about
what happened today. Yeah, I watched the
game but it sucked. Tonight, you will get a chance
to bring pride to your nation finally. Yeah. I’m going to try. JIMMY KIMMEL: Would
you like to be part of our belly flop competition? Absolutely.
JIMMY KIMMEL: OK. Very good.
All right. [CHEERING] Send them out, Drew. We got the pool back.
Oh, look at that. There’s Chris.
Hey Chris. How you doing? [CHEERING] [CHEERING] Hi, how you doing? Yeah, right out the back. That’s the next
first lady, I think. OK, Oh we have some more? [CHEERING] Meet everyone, crew. Hi there.
Hi, guys. How are you?
Hi. Welcome. Yes, yes, yes. Yes. Step into the pool. All right. At least half of those
people got lost on a tour and just are– It is time now for our 12th
annual pedestrian belly flop competition. Our belly flop security
guard in his official belly flop recliner, Guillermo. Guillermo. Hi, Jimmy!
JIMMY KIMMEL: Hi, Guillermo. I know you’re injured, but if
someone were to start drowning, would you be able to
jump in to save them? Yeah, sure. Of course.
For sure. OK, great. That was convincing. Let’s meet our judges. First up, he is the culture
expert on the hugely popular Netflix series “Queer Eye.” Say hello to Karamo Brown. How are you all doing? Thank you. JIMMY KIMMEL:
Karamo, isn’t it true that what matters most is what’s
on the inside of a belly flop? Completely. It’s all about
the heart that you give when you hit that water. JIMMY KIMMEL: Let’s
remember that when we are assessing scores. Thank you, Karamo. Next up, she is host of
the Sirius XM radio show “Conversations with
Maria Menounos” and founder of AfterBuzz
TV, Maria Menounos. Hello, Maria. Hi. JIMMY KIMMEL: Maria. You technically have
no belly at all. Are you qualified to
judge a flop of this type? Yeah, I don’t, Huh? Yes. I believe that I am qualified. I– JIMMY KIMMEL: What are you
looking for here, in a flopper? I’m looking for
style and finesse. JIMMY KIMMEL: Nice.
Very good. In the anchor position, you know
him as Manny on Modern Family. Rico Rodriguez. Rico. What’s up? JIMMY KIMMEL: Rico. Be honest with me. Is this the highlight
of your summer so far? It really is. Jimmy, I am so happy to be here. JIMMY KIMMEL: All right. We’re happy to have you. Guillermo, bring out
flopper number one. They will be rated on a scale
of 1 to 10, 10 being best. And here is Chris. Chris. You look beautiful. Wow. When your new son-in-law
gets a load of his new– Yeah. Wait till he sees this. JIMMY KIMMEL: Well, you’re
really filling out that Speedo. Are you ready? Have you done this
before, Chris? No, I’ve never
done this before. JIMMY KIMMEL: Never
done a belly flop? No.
JIMMY KIMMEL: Well, boy. It looks like you
were born to do this. Here we go. We’re going to count it
down, and then just try to– as much skin hits as
much water as possible. That’s the key. Count it down, Guillermo. Three, two, one. JIMMY KIMMEL: Here we go. [SPLASHING] I’ll tell you what though. For a first time, that
was quite impressive. Let’s do the instant
replay here in slow motion. You can see. He did indeed– Let’s go to the judges
for their scores. Let’s start with Karamo. Karamo, what do you think? I’m giving him a 10, first
of all, for how wet I am, but also the style
of those Speedos. Are you kidding me? JIMMY KIMMEL: Maria,
you give him a what? Jimmy, I thought this
was a belly flop contest, not a wet t-shirt contest. I’m soaking wet. I’ve got to give him a 10. Wow. JIMMY KIMMEL: This could be
over just right off the bat. And finally Rico.
Rico? Oof.
This is a tough decision. A 10. JIMMY KIMMEL: Chris,
congratulations. That’s a 30. Really, you’re–
I mean, there’s– there’s no way to
lose right now. I mean–
– Yeah. That’s good.
First place. I’ll start it off. JIMMY KIMMEL: Well,
you looked great. Thank you for doing that. Cousin Sal has a
hot dog for you. Enjoy. Let’s meet our next flopper. Our next flopper is here from
Belgium, where the president is currently vacationing. Say hello to Alvina. Hello, Alvina. Alvina, are you here
on vacation right now? Yeah. Actually I am are.
JIMMY KIMMEL: You are? OK.
Very good. And have you ever tried
a belly flop before? Not on television
in America, so. JIMMY KIMMEL: Well, the
score to beat is a 30. So best of luck to you. Guillermo is going
to count you down. And here we go. Guillermo. Three, two, one. JIMMY KIMMEL: Here goes Alvina. [SPLASHING] Well. Well, let’s look at the
replay because if there are points assessed for pain,
I think, I think Alvina– but that’s the idea. You want to form a pocket
of air with your body. Let’s see what the judges think. I’ll start again with Kuramo. What do you say, Kuramo?
– I’m giving it– I’m giving it an 8 because
of the pain that you endured. But we didn’t get wet. You got to soak us now. JIMMY KIMMEL: That
is a good point. You do have to wet the judges. Maria, you say? I’m going to give her an 8. She was a little
trepidatious there. So I’m going for the eight. JIMMY KIMMEL: She’s
visiting a foreign land and we made her get back in. And Rico? I’ll go with a nine. JIMMY KIMMEL: Another
generous score from Rico. Alvina, very well done. You got a 25. So that’s pretty good,
but unfortunately, I think your country lost again. Yeah.
I know, I know. I watched the game.
It sucked. JIMMY KIMMEL: We have a
very American treat for you. That’s called a hot dog.
Enjoy. All right? All right. Thank you, Alvina. And finally– or not finally– our next flopper
is a big gentleman. This is Roger. Hello, Roger. How you doing? JIMMY KIMMEL: Roger. Where are you from, Roger? Inglewood. JIMMY KIMMEL: Inglewood. Where it’s all good, right? Yep. JIMMY KIMMEL: And it
is all good, indeed. I really think to be
Chris, you have to– you probably– that’s
our traditional greeting. All right, so let’s
give it your all, 110%. Here is Roger with his turn
in the belly flop competition. Guillermo, do it. Three, two, one. JIMMY KIMMEL: And
here comes Roger. [SPLASHING] [MUSIC PLAYING] KARAMO BROWN: That was awesome. JIMMY KIMMEL: Let’s see
that again,if we could, in slow motion. And here comes Roger. He gets up pretty high
for a big gentleman. I mean, where do
you go from that? If Chris got a 30,
what does Roger get? Karamo? What do you give Roger? Listen, Roger
gets an 11 from me. [CHEERING] Roger, you’re the man. JIMMY KIMMEL: An 11 for Roger. Maria? I kind of hit my face. I didn’t get as wet this time. I’ll go with a 10. JIMMY KIMMEL: A 10 is good. And Rico. OK. I got pretty soaked, so
I had to give it a 10. JIMMY KIMMEL: All right. Well, Roger. You’re in the lead, Roger. You’ve got 31 points.
– I know. JIMMY KIMMEL: Congratulations. They said that no one could
ever top a perfect score. I proved them wrong.
JIMMY KIMMEL: Guess what? They were wrong.
That’s right. You proved that
dreams do come true. Thank you, Roger.
All right. We have more flopping to come. And later on, we will crown
a belly flop champion. This is so exciting. [CHEERING] Oh, look at Roger. He really outdid everyone. He is our Belly Flop
Champion for 2018. If you liked that video,
