Hey, did you all
watch the big game? [AUDIENCE CHEERING] Yeah, yeah. I’m talking about Wheel
of Fortune, of course. [AUDIENCE LAUGHING] Boy, there’s a lot of
pressure when you’re on TV and you’re doing a
game, especially the TV, it makes it even more pressure. And you know time is running out
and you have to give an answer, and this happened
on a recent episode. You have 10 seconds. Talk it out. Good luck. [LAUGHING] Chasing tail? No. [LAUGHING] [BUZZER BUZZING] Oh. Oh, kicking back. That old expression
“chasing tail,” you know? Wheel of Fortune is always
doing those expressions. That’s not the only game where
there’s a lot of pressure. People say the wrong thing
on my show, Game of Games, they drop three stories. Here’s an answer someone gave. This is probably one
of my favorite answers in all the seasons
that we’ve done so far. If Vin Diesel challenged
you to a pie-eating contest and then put 20 pies
in his pie hole, where did he put his pies? Oh, hm. Oh. Ellen, he put them
in his butthole? [ALL LAUGHING] Is that where he put them? He put them in his
butthole, Ellen. [AUDIENCE LAUGHING] Uh, OK. Well, Sarah, I’m gonna
give you a chance to steal. [LAUGHING] Vin Diesel put the
pies in his mouth. Mark, do you know why
it’s called Sudden Drop? Wha– hold on– wait– who,
who, who, who, who dropping? [SHRIEKING] He just doubled down. He just stuck with that
answer, knowing that everyone was laughing at him. Of course, Game of Games,
dropping is not the only thing that you have to watch out for. Here’s a sneak peek. This is tonight’s episode. This is a really fun game. [AUDIENCE CHEERING] You’ve got one! [FRANTIC MUSIC PLAYING] It’s so slippery! Ah! Ah! Ah! Ah! [SHRIEKING] Oh. That’s on tonight
at 8:00 PM on NBC. [AUDIENCE CHEERING] It’s fun to see people
perform under pressure. You never know what
they’re gonna say. So Quinn Donaldson, come down
here and play Five-Second Rule with me. [AUDIENCE CHEERING] [FUNKY MUSIC PLAYING] There’s so many
hops that you do! You stop and then you
hop again, and then– I’m like, woo! All right, so you know this
game, Five-Second Rule. Yeah, yeah. It’s really easy. I’m gonna give you
a category and then you have five seconds to
name three things, OK? OK. Name three things
you should never say to your significant other. I hate you, don’t
eat that, and don’t– do that, don’t watch that show! [BELL RINGING] [AUDIENCE LAUGHING] I don’t know what just– uh. OK, I hate you, I agree
with you to never, ever say that to anyone. Don’t watch that? Wow, you’re bossy. Yeah. [AUDIENCE LAUGHING] Wow. What were they watching that
you didn’t want them to watch? If they watch– if my
boyfriend, if he watches Friends without me, then I’m
like, don’t watch that. I see. You’re just catching
up on Friends? [AUDIENCE LAUGHING] OK. I’m not gonna tell
you how it ends. [AUDIENCE LAUGHING] All right. You did it, though. You did it in time. OK. All right. Name three things
that make you nervous. Getting on an interview, being
on the phone with someone I don’t know, and
getting a parking ticket. [BUZZER BUZZING, BELL RINGING] Did you say getting
pregnant again? Get– no. [AUDIENCE LAUGHING] Getting a parking ticket. Getting a parking ticket. Oh. Same thing. [AUDIENCE LAUGHING] Yeah, all right. I’m gonna put you
under more pressure right now because you’re gonna
have to dance with tWitch.
