This brings a whole new meaning to cracking under pressure! Zac Efron dropped by ‘The Tonight Show’ to play a game of egg roulette with Jimmy Fallon– and things get real messy real quick.
In Egg Roulette, similar to regular roulette, the odds are daunting and the risks are massive– or possibly hard boiled. On the Aug. 17 episode of The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon challenged Zac Efron to the high-stakes game, where the two would take turns selecting an egg from a carton, and then smashing it over their own head. Eight of the eggs were hardboiled, four were not. As they say, may the odds be ever in your favor, guys!
Jimmy’s sidekick, Steve Higgins, introduces the game, and pretty clearly takes sick pleasure in what awaits the men inside the carton. “Once you choose an egg, you must smash that egg upon the top of your head, no put-backs!” Higgins says. “The first one to smash two raw eggs on their head loses.”
Zac goes first and it’s clear that he is aware of the situation’s gravity. “I feel like I’m in the last scene of Deer Hunter right now,” he says, part joking and also part not at all joking. He’s safe! Zac smacked the egg on his noggin and it remained fully intact.
Jimmy was up next. Again, the selected egg did not break. Phew. So, back to Zac who, this time, is not so lucky. The egg oozed from the top of his head, down the side of his face, and began to drip onto his gorgeous suit. But you know what? Despite being covered in yolk and shell, Zac still somehow manages to be the most dashing dude, like, ever. How do you do that, Zac? No, seriously, we’re asking.
Watch the whole hilarious game to see who ultimately triumphs and who gets scrambled (that’s kind of an expression, right?). Would you play a game of egg roulette?
