tv Jimmy Kimmel Live ABC June 6, 2018 11:35pm-12:38am PDT
what a fun night here on abc7. thanks for watching. i'm dan >> dicky: from hollywood, it's "jimmy kimmel live!" tonight, mariah carey, from "tag," isla fisher, the national spelling bee champ, and music from kyle featuring kehlani. and now, don't move, here's jimmy kimmel! [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> jimmy: i'm jimmy, i'm the host of the show. thank you for watching. thanks to all of you for coming. a special welcome to those of
you who have joined us for our special primetime show. this is our second show tonight. earlier tonight, from cleveland, we had game three of the nba finals. warriors/cavaliers. and this time they're not just playing for a title this time, they're playing for the chance to not fly back to cleveland again. so it's very exciting. you know, between the nba finals and the bachelorette there have never been more men fighting for a ring on this network. this is a double diva day for us tonight with jennifer lopez earlier and mariah carey later. [ cheers and applause ] that's exciting. first i want to mention our first lady, melania trump, who made her first tv appearance in 26 days today. melania, if you don't know, has been m.i.a. following a routine kidney procedure. her absence led to much speculation about her whereabouts, and that speculation led to this tweet. the fake news media has been so unfair and vicious to my wife and our great first lady, medical lawn yeah during her
recovery from surgery. they reported everything from near death to facelift to left the white house and me for new york or virginia to abuse, all l fake, she's doing really well. i hadn't heard any of these rumors, by the way. [ laughter ] mai thanks for filling me in on that. by the way, tweeting the media has been unfair to melania is a ballsy move coming from a guy who hooked up with a porn star while she was breastfeeding their child. that's how he works. then because that wasn't enough, six minutes later he added, four reporters spotted melania in the white house last week walking merrily along to a meeting, they never reported the sighting because it would hurt the sick narrative that she was living in a different part of the world, was really ill, or whatever, fake news is really bad. right. let me tell you the only time we'll see melania walking merrily along any-where is to her lawyer's office to get the
final papers signed. [ cheers and applause ] so whatever the case, she's back, being best, she accompanied the president on a visit to fema this an. if anyone d any doubts about her well-being, those were quickly put to rest. >> i'd like to sort of maybe satisfy and pay some respects to some of the people here today on the list. because we have to start with our great first lady, melania. thank you, melania. you went through a rough patch but we're very proud of her. she's done a fantastic job. the people love you. >> jimmy: hey, you know what, they look great, it's good to see them back together. this is good too. later in the meeting, the president -- roll this tape, the president for whatever reason, you see he takes his water bottle and puts it down on the floor, then mike pence does his too. it's like trumpy-see, trumpy-do.
he's for sure a west world robot, right? this was interesting. this morning, the president announced that he's decided to commute the sentence of a nonviolent drug offender named alice marie johnson after a plea for clemency from none other than kim kardashian. this woman, johnson, she is or was serving year 21 of a life sentence for a first-time drug offense. somehow kim kardashian got wind of this and made a pilgrimage to the oval office to ask trump for help, and he did, he helped. maybe that's how we do things from now on. we send -- like quick, somebody get lisa vanderpump to the white house! to say something about health care! this is good news for a change. alice marie johnson is set to be released tonight and her homecoming will no doubt make for an unforgettable episode of "keeping up with the kardashians." [ applause ] you know what i have to say? i can't wait for her to meet rob. [ laughter ] in other kim news, we now have a
location for the kim jong-un summit which is scheduled to happen in singapore next week. the meeting will take place at the luck sure yuls capella hotel. i did some research. i think i know why trump chose this particular hotel. it is right next to a golf course and five minutes from a kfc if you got long way. they say the summit could last as long as two days or it could last for seconds, depending upon how hot trump and kim jong-un are for each other. even though the summit hasn't happened yet, trump is reportedly considering inviting kim jong-un to mar-a-lago in florida for a follow-on. this is getting serious, they're moving on to the hometown dates? [ laughter ] with that now on the calendar, discussions are under way for another summit, this one with vladimir putin. according to vladimir putin, he said he and trump speak regularly on the phone. their conversations go like this. you hang up first. no, no, you hang up first.
but isn't that -- the president is regularly chatting with the person who actively tried to sabotage our election. just for clarity, the president of the united states is pals now with putin and kim jong-un, and fighting with canada. hey, i do want to mention, speaking of canada, june 16th are will be playing basketball against noted canadian ted cruz. he's a senator from texas. he challenged me to a game after i compared him to a blobfish. fairly, i thought. [ laughter ] i accepted his challenge. now we're still hammering out the details. but i have some ground rules. i came up with some ground rules that i hope he will accept. so here they are. number one, no kisses longer than 12 seconds. okay? number two, at no point during play will ted be allowed to transform into a cloud of bats. rule number three, i'll be playing against ted and ted alone, he cannot get any help from soldiers in his goblin army. number four, every time ted uses
a line from the simpsons he loses a point. senator cruz will be allowed no more than three pornography breaks. [ audience booing ] if we can agree on those, i think we'll be in very good shape. [ cheers and applause ] that will be happening june 16th in houston, texas, at a venue tbd. have that note rised, will you? i have another battle in front of me tonight. we have the tradition on this show that goes back i think to colonial times. every year we invite the winner of the scripps national spelling bee to spell against me. this year's winner is a 14-year-old named carthic nemeny. here's the winning word. >> c-o-eye-n-o-n-i-a. >> that's where coins come from. how does he know that word?
of all the fun things that come along winning spelling bee there ar lot of the them, this is what carthic is most excited about. >> what's the coolest thing about winning? >> i get to go on jimmy kimmel with guillermo. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: so he's excited to be here. we're excited to have him. so what we're going to do is we're going to take a break. when we come back, we're going to see what this kid has. it's me versus a 14-year-old in the 15th annual "jimmy kimmel live spelling bee" so spc around.

[ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: we're glad you're here. 14 years old. what grade are you in, karthik? >> i was in eighth but i'm going to ninth next year. >> jimmy: you're going into ninth. how does it feel to be a champion? >> it feels good. and it was a dream come true for
me to win. >> jimmy: was it really a dream come true? [ cheers and applause ] i know how you feel because you're not the only champion on this stage. when i was about your age, i was the seventh and eighth grade school spelling bee champion. that's me. me in the flannel. this is before we had spell check too. how much money did you win for winning the bee? >> $40,000. >> jimmy: $40,000. that's a lot of money. what are you going to do with that money? do you have an idea? >> save it for college. >> jimmy: oh, you don't need to -- oh. you know what you should do? blow it on candy, that would be fun, right? all right, you ready to do this? okay, good, i'm glad you're here. first of all, i'm going to introduce the team. our judge tonight is my cousin sal, who despite the fact that -- [ applause ] despite the fact that we are related and he also works for me, has in no way rigged this contest to favor me, correct?

would you put that up in your house? >> i would have to explain it to the kids. >> jimmy: we are fully -- pretty much clothed. >> fully clothed in the tub that would be okay. >> jimmy: i think that would be okay. although maybe they'll get the idea they can get in the tub fully clothed. >> i sometimes go swimming with my clothes on because i'm too lazy to put on a bathing suit. so they thought that was something they should do. they tend to sometimes jump in the pool with their clothes on and i have to explain to the nannies, sorry, you'll have to change them, and i'll help, it's my fault. >> jimmy: hey, that's the nanny's problem, you know? >> sorry. >> jimmy: do you do homework with the kids? >> i have. they're only in first grade, so it's not -- i mean, that's about the level i'll have to stop.

do know it. >> jimmy: i see. >> i mean, of my own stuff, more an obscure type of a thing. but anyway. >> jimmy: when you write the lyrics down -- >> with that song. >> jimmy: do you save the paper that you originally -- do you say, oh this might be a memento, i will keep this forever? >> i do. and that's -- here's the thing. most people write in their phones now. if i'm cowriting with somebody and everybody's on their phone, i'm like, i don't want to be on my phone, if i'm in the middle of writing a lyric and trying to listen to the track, then someone's going to distract me by texting me. >> jimmy: suddenly that's part of your song. >> exactly. it could be something inspiring. but i do have a -- i were in a book. people give me books, one time, a long time ago, because i don't have birthdays, i only have anniversaries so it doesn't count.

[ cheers and applause ] which one of the kids is the better singer? [ laughter ] >> i can't say that they're going to watch this. my son is like a technological
genius. by the way he ordered a dog the other day. >> jimmy: what? >> he went with his father and like -- because i have to control them with ipads. literally he charged $5,000 on something. >> jimmy: no he didn't! >> yeah he did, he figures everything out, like let me do it. i'm like, you're 6 years old. the other night he apparently was with nick, he ordered a dog. and nick called and they called him and he was like -- they were like, your dog is ready. he's like, i didn't order a damn dog. >> jimmy: you can order dogs online? this amazon is unbelievable. >> we have enough dogs at this point. >> jimmy: wow. has the dog arrived or did you cancel the dog? >> the dog's been canceled.

cover songs, some of your favorite songs that aren't necessarily your own songs? >> hm, probably not.

[ laughter ] >> oh, okay. just in case. people like to interpret things. >> jimmy: people do take things out of -- what was the worst part about being a judge on "american idol"? [ laughter ] >> i'll tell you the best part was some of the memes that we got. >> jimmy: memes were good? >> yeah. like the meme -- it was a bleep experience, we don't have to go back there, but there was some good hairstyles. we'll stick to the positive. my hairstyles. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: let's go back -- >> everybody else's were great too, yay.

and it gets stuck. so my little brother eddie never saw the red hot chili peppers. >> jimmy: poor eddie. >> and my brother denny saw the concert with one shoe. >> jimmy: oh, boy. security, they weren't suspicious when you came -- walked into the concert with a single shoe in your hand? >> no, i put it in my backpack. >> see, okay, that's the way to go. you come from a family of swindlers, basically? >> yes, yes. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: where do they all live now? >> they all live in greece. they live on an island, cyros. we have these youth hostels, i think americans call them, we call them backpackers, they have them in athens and it's really fun. >> jimmy: they run them? >> they run them. they have a sports bar, a laundromat, a bunch of these big buildings that young people stay at when they're traveling. >> jimmy: do you ever stay in the youth hostel? >> no. but i do feel like every time i go, i really want to work and help out, but i'm the worst at it. >> jimmy: you're asked to? are you asked to work and help out? or you want to pitch in? >> i want to pitch in.
but then i always get shafted. and my brothers give me the night shift on reception. where you have to work the computers. >> jimmy: for real? >> yes. >> jimmy: people walk into a youth hostel and you're there working the counter? >> yes, and they don't know my mom owns it so they think my career's over. [ laughter ] she's not doing movies anymore. then i fall asleep. the worst when is i have to work the bar. i can never -- like at some point, the till usually malfunctions. and then somebody will ask for something, a white russian or something i don't know what it is, so then i make some cocktail and they'll give me 20 euros and i'll go, there is your change, 20 euros. i gave it back because i can't open the till and i'm too embarrassed and stupid to admit. >> jimmy: and you're not making them the drink that they ordered, sounds like. >> no. >> jimmy: it seems fair they would get it for free. you must be very popular. most bartenders who give the drinks away really do well. >> i can barely see over the bar, i'm not popular, i'm
telling you right now. >> jimmy: this movie is really funny. i saw it today. and it's crazy that it is based on -- >> true story. >> jimmy: a very silly premise, but it's based on a true story. >> did you ever play tag as a kid? >> jimmy: of course, yeah. >> what other games did you do? >> jimmy: all the games. i was a fun-loving child. [ laughter ] >> you still are. >> jimmy: but as an adult i'm not playing tag. maybe with my kids every once in a while. >> hide-and-seek. >> jimmy: you get over tag when you're an adult. except these guys. >> that's the premise of the movie. here are these guys that still do it, they do it through the month of may every year. and they do it for 30 years. they're childhood friends. the high jinks they get up to surpass anything we do in the movie. >> jimmy: they sneak up on each other? >> yes, they dress as mascots as games, jump out of the boot. and the wives, i play ed helms' wife, and the wives are equally sort of -- they're zealots about the game too. and they do all sorts of things.
it's a really -- it's a really funny movie. >> jimmy: it is a really funny movie and i can't believe -- when you tell me what they do in real life is more extreme than what happens in the movie, it makes me think that these men should be institutionalized. maybe imprisoned. [ laughter ] did you meet these actual guys? >> i'm supposed to meet them tonight at jeremy renner's house. he's having a party to get us together. >> jimmy: jeremy renner unless the movie, the greatest of the tag players. >> correct. >> jimmy: i didn't know you could be good at tag. jeremy renner's character is very good. >> correct, he broke both his arms on the first day of shooting. >> jimmy: i heard that. first day? >> yeah. he just carried on. he didn't even stop for a moment. he would just -- when they said rolling -- >> jimmy: what an imbecile. [ laughter ] i mean, wow what a brave guy! [ laughter ] so he had broken arms and no casts the whole time? >> no, he would peel this cast off on rolling, and action do the same, floppy spaghetti arms.
>> jimmy: what? that would be a good movie, "floppy spaghetti arms." well, it's very good to see you. the movie is very funny," tag" opens in theaters one week from friday. isla fisher, everybody! be right back with music from kyle and kehlani too! >> dicky: the "jimmy kimmel live" concert series is presented by mercedes-benz. the best or nothing.
