Those who know me well know that I'm obsessed with the following two things:
1. My headband obsession and how I have to match them according to my outfits.
2. I am a huge fan of Jimmy Fallon.
Jimmy Fallon took over for Conan O'Brien has the host of "Late Night" in 2009 and has made us laugh every night since then. He did not stop there, as he took over for Jay Leno as host of "The Tonight Show" since 2014. He doesn't make late night comedy, he slays late night comedy. The SNL alum has grown over the years by climbing up the ladder of the comedy industry. Jimmy Fallon has become an inspiration as not only a comedian but as a person.
Laughter is a universal language with the power to make our world's current reality a bit easier to bear. Here are my 10 reasons why Jimmy Fallon is the king of late night television.
1. Lip sync battles!
Jimmy and his celebrity guests have a blast lip syncing some of our favorite songs! My favorite has to be when Jimmy and his guests, Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart, did a Super Bowl Lip sync battle!
2. Puppy predictors
When I see cute puppies, my heart literally melts! I adore cute puppies and I love to see them run around and play. It's just so adorable!
3. Pup Quiz
Why stop at "Puppy Predictors?" Jimmy and his guests literally get adorable. They answer a series of animal questions in order to hoard the most [adorable] puppies. What's better than cuddling adorable puppies while sitting in reclining chairs?
4. Water Wars
Remember the card game War that most of us played as kids? Who ever has the highest card wins the round. Jimmy took the classic card game to a whole new level, with the loser being splashed with a cup of cold water. It's kind of like a wet T-shirt contest (in a way).
5. Kid Theater
A lot of kids have imaginations and can even create their own stories. Jimmy and his guests then read scenes written by kids where they were only given the title of a movie and the kids had to write the rest.
6. History of Rap
Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake performing together?! Enough said.
Based off of a fan's reaction to a bit on the show, Jimmy's famous skit series "Ew!" features many notable guests like Taylor Swift and Zac Efron. By the way, he spells Sara with no "H" because H's are EW!
8. Everything Justin Timberlake!
Jimmy and Justin are the best of friends. Again, enough said.
9. Thank You Notes
*Cue Thank You Note writing music* "Thank you, Jimmy Fallon, for taking some time to write thank you notes, even if they don't actually get mailed out."
A game that is a cross between beer pong and Plinko. Drinks include tequila, pickle juice, lemonade, Everclear and even pea soup (yuck).
11. Real People, Fake Arms
I just love how Jimmy and his guests use fake, plastic arms and use them to their own comedic advantage. Like when Jimmy and Sandra Bullock use their plastic arms in an ice cream shop on the soap opera "Jacob's Patience."
12. His impressions
From Donald Trump to Russell Brand to Neil Young, Jimmy Fallon knows how to impersonate people and entertain us with them. If you close your eyes, you'll freak out by how similar he sounds.
Thanks Jimmy Fallon for making me and millions of people laugh every night! You always bring a smile to my face no matter what!
