Boo! Ellen DeGeneres nearly scared Josh Duhamel out of his costume during the Halloween episode of her show on Oct. 30. After Josh said he and his wife, Fergie, like to dress up for parties, Ellen gave Josh a Fergalicious fright! Click to watch!
Really, Josh Duhamel, 42, should have known it was coming. One does not simply join Ellen DeGeneres, 57, on The Ellen DeGeneres Show during Halloween without getting scared or pranked. Ellen proved why she’s the Queen of Halloween by nearly spooking Josh to death with help from his wife, Fergie, 40.
Well, sorta. During the Oct. 30 episode, Josh decided to join Ellen in dressing up for the holiday. While she went as Karla Kardashian, the sixth Kardashian sister, Josh was dressed up as Jim Carrey’s Lloyd Christmas from Dumb and Dumber. This, of course, made his reaction to the scare even more hilarious. Before he was spooked into an early grave, Josh admitted how he and his wife love dressing up in outfits and they find a way to make any event into a costume party.
“We went to the premiere of Rock of Ages years ago and I decided at the last-minute I was going to go as a headbanger,” Josh said. Fergie was on board. “She’s like ‘oh, we’re doing that,’” he said, before saying how she pretended to be a “British groupie” for Josh’s rocker. Nice! It sounds like Josh loves Halloween as much as Ellen, which made him the perfect target for one of her pranks.
When Ellen gave the signal (watch as she scratches her necklace) one of her staff members jumped out and scared Josh. The best part? The gentleman was clearly dressed up like Fergie! Amazing. It was just as good — if not better — than when Ryan Seacrest scared Ariana Grande to “death” when she stopped by his studio for an interview. Ariana appeared on the Halloween episode of Ellen, dressed as an adorable cow.
Though he cursed out of shock — “you son of a b*tch” — Josh quickly realized that Ellen had got him. It was pretty incredible to see an angry Lloyd Christmas swear on television. But, Josh seemed to understand how ridiculous (and fun) the whole thing was and joined Ellen in laughing.
What did you think about Ellen’s scare on Josh, HollywoodLifers? Do you have any Fergalicious pranks planned for Halloween?
