- 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.
JIMMY KIMMEL: Their new season, season two, starts Monday.
Congratulations on the new season, Sal.
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.
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.
Now, what is your name?
JIMMY KIMMEL: Eric, where are you from?
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?
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.
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?
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?
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'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.
Well, go on-- come on through, and we'll
get you up on the board.
And we'll get Eric and Courtney.
Oh, there's Eric.
How are you?
How you doing?
Yes, go on through.
Go on through.
And it's like a--
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.
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
A true American hero, Mr. Shaun White.
How are you, Shaun?
Thanks for having me. JIMMY KIMMEL: Good to see you.
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,"
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,
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.
Our first flopper is ready to go, and that is 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.
So on my count, let it happen.
Three, two, one-- belly flop.
Well, there you go.
I like Eric's style.
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.
JIMMY KIMMEL: Oh, no.
Oh, boy. I--
JIMMY KIMMEL: Nicle--
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.
JIMMY KIMMEL: You are moist, as well.
What do you think, Shaun? - Yes.
I went 10.
JIMMY KIMMEL: A 10 from Shaun White!
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.
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.
JIMMY KIMMEL: Very generous, Nicole.
JIMMY KIMMEL: Very generous.
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.
JIMMY KIMMEL: All right, thank you.
Courtney, the judges have spoken, and I believe-- well,
you got a 24.
I'll take it. JIMMY KIMMEL: You'll take it?
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.
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--
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.
I am crazy.
JIMMY KIMMEL: One.
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!
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.
