Tonight Show: Jimmy Fallon and Olivia Wilde try to make a watermelon explode

Posted on

NBC

Jimmy Fallon and Olivia Wilde played a new game on Friday night’s episode of The Tonight Show, one that Gallagher would appreciate. In “Watermelon Time Bomb,” the goal of the game is to stack as many rubber bands as possible onto a watermelon until it explodes — like “Pumpkin Time Bomb” with Shailene Woodley, but this time no pumpkin and no Shailene Woodley.

Fallon and Wilde strapped on goggles and loaded rubber bands for a solid three minutes, squeezing the watermelon tighter as they awaited the explosion. “It’s going to hurt so bad,” the Meadowland star told Fallon.

When nothing happened, they went for the double bands, together placing two rubber bands on the watermelon to speed up the pace.
