Jimmy Kimmel the talk To the Youth – Jimmy Kimmel Bachelorette

Colton being is set to be the upcoming a star of ABC’s 23rd season of “The Bachelor.” Underwood is a self-proclaimed virgin and was a contestant on Season 14 of “The Bachelorette.” The “talk” came to an end with diagrams of a man and woman’s reproductive organs that they end up getting it incredibly awkward. Despite the crowd erupting into laughter as Kimmel spoke, Underwood handled professionally. As he said “I’m just waiting for the right person, the right heart,” he said. “I just hold a lot of value into it.”
Kimmel went on explaining the fertilization process to the former pro football player saying, “Then the egg becomes what they call a baby omelet and it forms a human being. The human being comes out and it wakes you up really early every single morning, sometimes many times in the middle of the night. So, you have to be careful and wear protection. Do you wear protection?” That’s when things segued into condom use. And we’ll leave it at that, folks.
Jimmy Kimmel Quotes
- “The truth is, we have this idea that late night is about creativity and being cool, but that’s not our job. Our job is to get as many people watching the commercials in between our show. That’s the reality of it.”

- “If you don’t have a crazy Facebook friend, you are the crazy Facebook friend.”
- “Really, the reason I got into show business is I wanted to be David Letterman’s friend. There are kids in high school, and this guy’s a baseball player, this guy’s on the wrestling team, this guy is really smart. I was the guy who watched David Letterman. I watched every night on a little black-and-white TV at my desk. I wanted to be an artist at that point, so I’d draw and watch the show all night.”

Jimmy Kimmel Super Bowl
Jimmy may not be able to make it out to Minneapolis for Super Bowl 2018, but also that doesn’t mean his longtime sidekick Guillermo can’t go in his place. In one of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, episodes in the late-night host he aired a clip from Super Bowl Media Day in which Guillermo made the interview rounds with the players and coaches of both the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles.
Guillermo started by telling the notoriously straight-faced Bill Belichick to smile more before he offered Tom Brady an essential teeth-whitening tip, he asked him to drink more soda and tequila. “I love tequila,” the Pats quarterback responded, although he has said he rarely drinks alcohol.
Guillermo moved on to the Eagles players Jay Ajayi and LeGarrette Blount, whom he clearly wasn’t sure what to make of his line of questioning. “Your name is Blount, that’s a cool name,” he told the running back. “So when people tackle you, are they hitting the blunt?”
