Fans mourning Jack's death after this week's double-dose of This Is Us might feel better after watching this clip, courtesy of Ellen DeGeneres.

On Wednesday's The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the host offers Ventimiglia the chance to win $10,000 for the charity of his choice by playing her game "Make It Rain." Ventimiglia faces off against tWitch to answer trivia for the chance to pull on one of many umbrellas, which releases either the cash prize or a ton of cold water.

Of course, the rules don't seem to matter too much, as DeGeneres gives Ventimiglia a pass on spelling his name backward in order for him to get soaked. Needless to say, the ladies in the audience go wild.

Earlier in the show, when the pair sat down to chat, Ventimiglia spoke about the heartbreaking Super Bowl episode and defended the Crock-Pot. "I own a Crock-Pot, I love Crock-Pot," he says. "I think there was a lot of misdirected hate at a Crock-Pot, as opposed to a faulty slow cooker from the past."

"We're not trying to hurt the Crock-Pot business," DeGeneres agrees, "Hashtag Crock-Pot Is Good!" <iframe src="//" width="575" height="324" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen allowfullscreen="" class="" resize="0" replace_attributes="1" name=""></iframe>
