14th Annual Summer Belly Flop Competition


– It is a special time of year.
This is the time of year
when we offer people walking
by our studio the
“floppertunity” of a lifetime–
the chance to take their clothes
off on national television.
It’s our annual Pedestrian
Belly Flop Competition.
We’ve got a pool in the
back of our theater.
We’ve got a panel
of celebrity judges,
and memories are just
waiting to be made.
This is the 14th we–
14 years ago, a mysterious
voice told me, if you build it,
they will flop.
And we did, and they do.
So let’s go to Cousin Sal
out on Hollywood Boulevard–
What’s happening, Jimmy?
JIMMY KIMMEL: Hello, Sal.
What’s going on?
JIMMY KIMMEL: Sal, by the
way, I want to mention–
has his own show now on Fox
Sports One called “Lock It In.”
It’s a sports gambling show.
That’s right.
JIMMY KIMMEL: Their new season,
season two, starts Monday.
Congratulations on
the new season, Sal.
Thank you.
They’ll probably cancel
it between now and then.
But thank you for
bringing it up.
Your gambling problem
really paid off in a big way.
Thanks.
So have you found someone on
the street we can bet on for–
I have.
Let’s bet on some bellies.
Come on in.
JIMMY KIMMEL: All right.
All right.
Here we go.
All right.
Very good.
Now, what is your name?
Eric.
JIMMY KIMMEL: Eric,
where are you from?
Minneapolis.
JIMMY KIMMEL: And what
do you do for work?
I do human resources.
JIMMY KIMMEL: OK.
So people come to
you and they complain
about their jobs, and–
you complain to
them about things
they’ve said about
other people and done?
Pretty much.
But you know, I help them
find the door sometimes, too.
JIMMY KIMMEL: OK, good.
Well, it’s time to cut loose.
I know you have a stressful
job, and– have you
belly flopped before?
Yes, but not on TV.
JIMMY KIMMEL: OK.
What did you have
for lunch today?
A chicken sandwich.
JIMMY KIMMEL: OK, great.
All right.
Maybe we’ll get
to see that, too.
So come on through Eric, and
yeah, we’ll get you going.
We’ll get you dressed,
and– or undressed, and–
let’s see who else
we have out there.
We can’t have–
it’s just Eric, it
won’t be much of a competition.
– Hi.
JIMMY KIMMEL: Hello.
– Hi, there.
JIMMY KIMMEL: Hi.
What’s your name?
Courtney.
JIMMY KIMMEL: Courtney,
where are you from?
Houston, Texas.
JIMMY KIMMEL: Houston?
And what do you do
for work, Courtney?
I’m a manager at
a tanning salon.
JIMMY KIMMEL: You’re a
manager at a tanning salon?
Yes.
JIMMY KIMMEL: You seem
very fair skinned.
I’m a very good before
and after of spray tans.
JIMMY KIMMEL: I see.
OK.
And what’s that– that’s
got to be a weird job, huh?
It is.
It’s– you see a lot
of interesting people.
JIMMY KIMMEL: I
bet you see a lot
of interesting parts of a lot
of interesting people, too.
All right.
Well, go on– come
on through, and we’ll
get you up on the board.
And we’ll get Eric and Courtney.
[APPLAUSE]
Oh, there’s Eric.
Hi, Eric.
How are you?
How you doing?
Oh.
[INAUDIBLE]
Very good.
Hi, everyone.
Yes, go on through.
Go on through.
And it’s like a–
Hi.
All right.

We have pre-owned bathing
suits for you to wear.
Don’t worry about lice.
We got bellies to flop here
in Hollywood, all right?
It’s time– it’s time now
for our 14th annual Summer
Pedestrian Belly
Flop Competition.

Let’s meet our judges.
She is an actor,
comedian, writer, and host
of the reality
baking competition
“Nailed It” on
Netflix, Nicole Byer.
Hello, Nicole.
Hello.
JIMMY KIMMEL: Thank
you for doing this.
Thanks for having me.
I love this.
This is a real treat.
I can’t wait.
JIMMY KIMMEL: Oh, this is
going to be great, Nicole.
What, in your opinion,
makes a great belly flop?
Well, usually I like a big
fatty who just takes a big leap
and makes a very big splash.
JIMMY KIMMEL: I love it, Nicole.
I like the way you think.
Next up, a three time
Olympic gold medalist.
He is currently training–
training for the World Park
Skateboarding Championship.
A true American hero,
Mr. Shaun White.
Hello, Shaun.
How are you, Shaun?
Thanks for having me.
JIMMY KIMMEL: Good to see you.
Yeah.
Are you prepared to give the
winner one of your gold medals?
Yes.
JIMMY KIMMEL: Yes?
Very– wow, look at that.
Shaun– Always a sport.
Anything for–
Anything for a good flop.
In the anchor position, she is
a musician, comedian, cosmetics
entrepreneur, and winner of “Ru
Paul’s Drag Race All Stars,”
Trixie Mattel.
Hello, Trixie.
Hello.
JIMMY KIMMEL: Trixie, that
makeup is spectacular.
Are you at all worried about
being in the splash zone?
Um– this isn’t my first
time getting wet on this show,
Jimmy.
I think you would know that.
JIMMY KIMMEL: OK.
All right, good.
And is that waterproof, or
are we in danger of streaking?
In my line of business,
we always do waterproof.
Yes.
JIMMY KIMMEL: Oh, wonderful.
Thank you, Trixie.
All right.
Our first flopper is ready
to go, and that is Eric.
Hello, Eric.
How you feeling, Eric?
I’m feeling good, Jimmy.
JIMMY KIMMEL: Just moments
ago you had clothes on,
and now you do not.
I’ve still got something on.
All right.
So on my count, let it happen.
All right?
Three, two, one– belly flop.

Well, there you go.
I like Eric’s style.
OK.
Let’s take a look at the slow
motion instant replay here.
You see, Eric went for
the mummy type approach.
He just kind of
fell into the water.
But let’s go to the judges
now for their scores.
Judges?
Nicole’s drowning.
JIMMY KIMMEL: Oh, no.
Oh, wow.
Wow.
Oh, boy.
I–
JIMMY KIMMEL: Nicle–
My contact–
I don’t know if it’s in or out.
JIMMY KIMMEL: Nicole, you look
like you got hit by a tsunami.
I– I feel like I
got hit by a tsunami.
Eric, you’re not my friend.
I mean, I– wow.
What a–
JIMMY KIMMEL: You gave him a 10.
How could you not?
What a treat.
JIMMY KIMMEL: Shaun White.
Shaun.
Wow.
JIMMY KIMMEL: You
are moist, as well.
What do you think, Shaun?
– Yes.
I went 10.
JIMMY KIMMEL: A 10
from Shaun White!
Wow.
We’re on our way to a
possible perfect score.
Trixie, what do you say?
The splash was incredible.
I felt like Daryl
Hannah in “Splash.”
Although you splashed a drag
queen in the face, which
is homophobic, so you get a 9.
JIMMY KIMMEL: Oh–
Trixie– Well, what
do you say, Eric?
What do you think?
You got a 29.
It is a little homopho–
JIMMY KIMMEL: That’s
almost impossible to beat.
It’s a good score.
By the way, he’s
bleeding, Jimmy.
That should add a point
right there, whatever–
JIMMY KIMMEL: Oh, you
think you’d get an extra–
how did you wind up bleeding?
I don’t know.
JIMMY KIMMEL: OK.
All right, let’s get
him in an ambulance
and go to our next flopper.
This is how we should decide
the democratic nominee
for president, by the way.
Yes, all right.
Courtney, how are you?
I’m good.
How are you?
JIMMY KIMMEL: I’m doing
well, thank you very much.
Now Courtney, you don’t have
much of a belly to flop with,
do you?
– I don’t.
I’m so sorry.
JIMMY KIMMEL: Should
the judges take that
into account, your handicap?
Your obvious handicap?
Well, hopefully I’ll get
some, you know, brownie points
for not having one.
A little cushion.
JIMMY KIMMEL: I would hope so.
All right, are you
ready to do this?
I hope so, yeah.
JIMMY KIMMEL: Step
around the microphone
and I’ll count you down.
Three, two, one.
Belly flop.
[APPLAUSE]

All right.
Let’s look at that
in slow motion
again before we get our scores.
And here is– yes,
Courtney in slow motion.
Oh, she didn’t quite
get flat over the water,
which is really what you
want in this situation.
Nicole, what do you say?
It was nice.
It was very, very pretty,
but it wasn’t a big splash.
That’s the–
JIMMY KIMMEL: Very
generous, Nicole.
Yeah.
JIMMY KIMMEL: Very generous.
Shaun?
Oh– um–
I thought it was great.
She had the distance,
the intensity.
But I went with a 9.
JIMMY KIMMEL: A 9, Shaun gives.
Finally, Trixie, you say–
Well, she’s very thin.
She’s very blond and beautiful.
Reminds me of somebody
I know, obviously.
But there wasn’t
quite enough belly.
Maybe next time, experiment
with a pregnancy.
So 7.
JIMMY KIMMEL: All
right, thank you.
All right.
Courtney, the judges have
spoken, and I believe– well,
you got a 24.
I’ll take it.
JIMMY KIMMEL: You’ll take it?
All right.
Well, you really have no
choice but to take it, so–
– Take this, too.
– We’re gonna give it to you.
All right, we’ll have some more
flopping as the show continues.
Thank you very much, Courtney.
[APPLAUSE]

Well, the flopping
is happening outside.

Oh, my god!
We have a last minute
addition to our Pedestrian
Belly Flop Competition–
none other than Henry
Winkler is on the board.
Henry– Henry, you
look good in red.
Are you ready to do this?
You ready–
[INAUDIBLE].
I am ready.
JIMMY KIMMEL: Now Henry, it’s
a little bit hard to hear you
with the snorkel in
your mouth, but Henry,
to increase the
level of difficulty,
we have decided to add
an obstacle to the pool.
On your way to your
belly flop, do you think
you can jump over this shark?
That will be the third time
I’ve ever done that, Jim.
JIMMY KIMMEL: All right.
Well, that’s enough times.
All right.
What was the second time,
just out of curiosity?
On “Arrested Development,”
I jumped over the shark
on the dock.
JIMMY KIMMEL: Oh, that’s right.
All right, well, this one–
there’s nothing to worry about.
I think it’s a lemon
shark, all right?
Are you ready, Henry?
I am, sir.
JIMMY KIMMEL: Let’s
see what you got.
Three, two–
I am crazy.
JIMMY KIMMEL: One.
Ready, judges?
Here comes Henry with the flop!

Took a page out of
[INAUDIBLE] book.
And there he goes.
He jumped the shark for sure.
Let’s– let’s go to the judges
now to see their scores.
Oh, my goodness.
Wow– Is that an 11, Shaun?
It’s on 11.
JIMMY KIMMEL: 31 for Henry!
Henry, congratulations.
You’ve set a new world record.
An unprecedented 31!
I am– I’m so proud.
And I have done it for all
short people in the world.
Aw, well, congratulations.
Henry Winkler, our
belly flop champion.

Hi, I’m Jimmy Kimmel,
and this is the internet.
I made it myself.

  1. Have you noticed that in every belly flop challenge, the thumbnail has a woman on it. Not another contestant, always a woman in bikinis.

  2. What is that creature that gave the first one a 9?
    Gross! His face is probably as big as a wall nut, but all that we see is makeup! Yucky!

  3. 3:57 that's why Europe wants to leave NATO. I'm sorry former allies but you are lost. May G-d save you.

  4. tracy taking her judgemental ass and turning it into a career as a permanent judge on the annual bellyflop competition.
