Acting a fool for healthy habits! Jimmy proved no challenge for the First Lady in a games tourney including tug-of-war, dodgeball and potato sack races.

Late Night hostJimmy Fallon visited Michelle Obama at the White House to help promote her Let’s Move initiative with a little friendly competition in the East Wing — and Michelle totally won!

“Good Luck. You’re going to need it,” Michelle warned Jimmy as their competition came down to the wire during the potato sack races. Tied 2-2, Jimmy took a tumble at the finish line allowing Michelle to hop across for the win.

Michelle brought the guns. Her toned arms out did Jimmy during the push-up competition and knocked him out in dodgeball.

In the end, Jimmy learned the real reason to promote healthy competition. “The most important thing for the kids to learn is that it’s all about being active and having fun,” Jimmy said. “It doesn’t matter if you won or if you lost.”

Of course, winning is nice. “It matters,” the always competitive Michelle responded.

Watch the video below! Did Jimmy take a dive at the end? Or did Michelle win fair and square?
