"jimmy kimmel live"! tonight, maggie gyllenhaal, dean norris, miss utah marissa powell, and music from empire of the sun. with cleto and the cletones. and now, your friend and mine, here is jimmy kimmel! ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ >> jimmy: thank you very much. thank you for watching, thank you for joining us. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: as you know, game six
of the nba finals between the miami heat and san antonio spurs happened tonight at the american airlines arena in miami. we do not know the outcome of that game because it is being played right now as we tape this show. either the heat remained alive or the spurs are the champions, which according to a survey by public policy polling is the outcome most people want. they found that 32% of the people surveyed want the spurs to win, only 20% favored the heat. this is a very significant poll, they found that mitt romney supporters overwhelmingly liked the spurs, mitt romney supporters, and they found that african-americans and latinos prefer the heat, and the vegans and vegetarians support them. the san antonio spurs, not by a little bit, 47%, which raises an interesting question, why do we need to know any of this?
it is even more fun today, we are asking even smaller demographic groups who they're rooting for in the finals. we made it a guessing game. here we go, i'm going to show you someone from a very particular group, and your job is to determine if they like the heat or the spurs. okay, let's begin. what is your name, where are you from? >> i'm charlie. i'm from sweden. >> charlie, the heat are playing the spurs, who are the guys rooting for? do you think the guy in shorts is rooting for the heat or spurs? >> the heat. >> the spurs. >> the heat. >> jimmy: all right, calm down everybody. let's see. >> i think it is the heat. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: all right, who do we have next? what is your name, where are you from? >> nuan, i'm from minnesota. >> jimmy: nuan, who do people root for, the spurs -- who are the people who don't care rooting for? >> jimmy: who are the people who don't care rooting for? i guess it doesn't matter.
>> i wouldn't know. >> jimmy: all right. next? >> hey, guys, what is your name? where are you from? >> my name is arman, from salt lake city. >> carlos, salt lake city, utah. >> you guys been watching the spurs and heat? >> a little bit, yeah. >> definitely. >> who are the guys who should -- just joined the national guard, and just growing up, rooting for? >> probably -- i'd say people who -- this indicating control in their lives? >> yeah. >> the heat or the spurs? all right, definitely the heat -- >> heat. >> spurs. >> probably that. >> okay, good luck with that, guys. >> jimmy: right, next? >> hello, sir, what is your name? where are you from? >> i'm zack, i'm from colorado. >> zack, who are smelly, disgusting, entitled hipster
groups rooting for? >> jimmy: smelly, disgusting, hipster groups rooting for? >> we're kind of rooting for both. >> jimmy: i believe we have another. >> what is your name, where are you from? >> hey, i'm bambam, from new york. >> hey, bam-bam, let me ask you, who is the murderer from silence of the lambs rooting for? >> jimmy: who do you think? the heat. >> i hope the heat, it is supposed to be 90 degrees today. that is the way it is. >> jimmy: all right, and i believe we have one more. >> hello, sir, what is your name, where are you from? >> i'm from toronto. >> take off those glasses for a second. oh, my god, who is tony parker's valet parker brother rooting for? >> jimmy: and what is going on in the background there, by the
way, let's find out? >> i don't even know, couldn't tell you. >> spurs or heat? >> i would say spurs. >> that is your brother's team. >> bambam, shut up! [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: oh, hey, speaking of colorful characters, do you remember the double rainbow guy, the guy with the video? well, his real name is bear vasquez, he lives just outside yosemite national park, a forest fire started, bear did what he does best, he grabbed his camera and narrated. >> oh, my gosh, wow, oh, gee, that thing -- those are 100-foot tall ponderosa pine trees, and those flames crested way over that. whoa, that is so intense, oh, my god! look at that, oh, gee, whoa. those flames are shooting up. oh, my god.
that is so big. whoa! whoa, oh, my god, oh, [ bleep ] oh, my gosh, oh, gees, oh, wow. yeah, yeah -- oh, my god, these flames are so big. >> jimmy: you know, i liked his early work better but that was pretty good, i thought. he was like the opposite of smoky the bear, a bear who actually enjoys fire. here is a weird story involving russian president vladimir putin and the owner of the new england patriots. the patriots owner, robert craft claims -- and i don't know why he would make this up -- that
putin stole his 2005 super bowl ring. he said while he was visiting the president, he handed his ring. the president tried it on, said i could kill somebody with this ring, which in russia is the highest form of a compliment. and then he put it in his pocket and walked out. like a 12-year-old girl shopping at claire's, a spokesperson said the ring was a gift and they have no plan to give it back. [ speaking in a foreign language ] >> jimmy: all right, well, like the song, right? i would like to congratulate kim kardashian and kanye west, who welcomed their first child. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: baby girl, that is right, kim is a mother, and kanye is a father, we did nothing to s
and so now, the countdown to the world's most uncomfortable "why is mommy famous" conversation begins. the birth went well, kim is resting comfortably as she always is. ryan seacrest has already ordered a second and third child. enews is reporting the baby's name will start with a k, which makes sense, i feel like kanye is the kind of dad who would name his daughter kanye, or kanisha, the family issued a statement saying they appreciate the warm wishes from fans but also look for privacy at this time. it's a big week for kanye west today. his new album dropped today. his baby dropped saturday. we better put newspaper under him in case anything else drops. probably my favorite story of
the week this week is that of marissa powell, better known as ms. utah, who was third runner-up in the ms. usa pageant, which is especially impressive since she said this. >> a recent report shows that in 40% of american families with children, women are the earners. what does it say about society? >> i think we can relate this back to education, and how we are continuing to try to strive to figure out how to create jobs right now. that is the biggest problem. and i think especially the men are -- seem as -- the leaders of this. and so we need to try to figure out how to create education better so that we can solve this problem. thank you. >> jimmy: no, thank you. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: so what it is worth, intentional or not, she made a great point about the failure of
the education system. and i'm very pleased for you, that we are going to take a break, and when we come back, ms. utah, marissa powell is here to explain whatever the hell it is she just said to us. plus, maggie gyllenhaal, stick around, okay?

>> this is great, this is great. >> jimmy: now, let's go over what was said. i think we have it here on the board. you said, and i believe this quote is accurate, i think we can re-relate this back to education, and how we are continuing to try to strive to figure out how to create jobs right now. that is the biggest problem, and i think especially the men are seen as the leaders of this. and so we need to try to figure out how to create education better so that we can solve this problem. >> thank you. [ cheers and applause ] >> thank you. >> jimmy: now, do even you have any idea what that means? >> absolutely no clue. absolutely no clue. >> jimmy: just the first thing that came out of your mouth? >> i did, i was so excited to be in the top five. i had all of my family and friends out there, and i hear the question and don't process it. and i just start talking, and once i started talking i couldn't take it back. and i thought, just smile,
and education! >> jimmy: you can't go wrong with education. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: a slippery slope, have you watched the clip? >> oh, i have seen it. >> jimmy: how many times have you watched it? >> at least four. >> jimmy: have your friends contacted you? >> you know, my friends want to be, i'm so sorry, i'm like come on, that doesn't make me feel better, just tell me that was fine and it wasn't that bad. that is what i want to tell myself until i watch it. and i'm like, you know -- >> jimmy: at my point did you think about hanging yourself with your sash? >> i thought about it. i decided it was important not to take yourself too seriously and learn how to laugh. >> jimmy: that is true. i find it effective. it is impressive you got third runner-up, even though you had that debacle, do you think it cost you the win, because of that? >> i felt like i did great with
the rest of the competition, and then it was up to that point. it was like, you know what? it happened and i'm owning it. >> jimmy: in a way, i don't even know who won the ms. usa contest. >> she is great. >> jimmy: she must not be that great -- in a way you eclipsed her with that answer. >> you know, i do feel bad about that, but it will blow over, and she is going to have her year, and she will be amazing. >> jimmy: do you in any way blame the woman from the real house wives for asking that question? >> i don't, i knew i looked at her when she asked the question, she was like girl, you're blowing it, i could see it in her face. >> jimmy: do you have a coach that goes through -- because i know you guys prepare for these pageants? >> i had a coach i worked with a lot. >> jimmy: where is this guy? and why doesn't he stand up and take responsibility.
>> it is not him, he prepared me so well. i'm used to being in front of lots of people and speaking, and for whatever reason i just got so caught up in the moment and i just started saying silly things, and i just went with it, and this is what happened. >> jimmy: you don't know what the questions will be? >> no, they can go over anything. >> jimmy: so they go over a weird assortment of questions. >> they can ask you anything, you just have to be ready to pull it out. >> jimmy: and so he tests you and asks you a variety of questions. >> right, it can be about yourself, and about anything. >> jimmy: it tends to be about world peace and these big issues, right? it seems like they want you to look dumb in a way. >> i don't know, i don't know about that. i think they're giving you the opportunity -- >> jimmy: to look dumb. >> whichever way you take it, if you're me -- then you take the opportunity -- >> jimmy: has anyone contacted you about running for office, perhaps? >> hopefully, i'm open to suggestions, people. >> jimmy: what is the second most embarrassing thing that happened to you? >> oh, my gosh, this tops it
all. i thought about it, i thought he may ask me about it. in elementary school, i had the biggest crush on this boy, he was trying to ask me a question, i had to go to the bathroom really bad, i went into the bathroom and tucked my dress into my underwear. and when i walked out there he was waiting to ask me this question, and i had my underwear tucked into my dress, and it was the worst day of my life until a couple of nights ago. until we topped it. we can laugh about it. and that is -- >> jimmy: well, i know you're a singer and that is your gift. i thought it would be fun instead of just reciting the question, the answer that you gave, you put it in song and agreed to do it for us tonight. now, you will be singing your answer with our band, correct? all right, so why don't you go right ahead. i'll get out of your way here. here she is, ms. utah. >> thank you. ♪

certain mascara is -- they send you money, i get weird things sometimes if i ever mention anything like juicy tube, do you know what those things are? >> no. >> jimmy: well, i have a lot of them. >> well, this is what happened. i was in l.a. the last time i was here. and i was driving. and the license plate in front of me said "schlong". >> jimmy: i think i saw it on your twitter page. okay, i'll bring this up. >> okay, the license plate said -- instead of an "o," there was a star. that is what people tweet. >> jimmy: this is what inspired you? >> god just came down and said -- yeah, that is what inspired me. >> jimmy: really, i would never have figured out that that was schlong, by the way. >> well, it is, isn't it?

earlier, all the stuff with the nsa. >> jimmy: uh-huh, yeah. so you know how clapper went in front of the nsa, and they asked him before, were you wiretapping, and he said no, absolutely not, over and over again. and so then when it all came out they said well, what do you mean? you just told us this was not happening. and he said i told the least untruth. and so my husband and i were reading that and he said is that like saying i only put the tip in?
