Watch J.J. Watt, Jimmy Fallon Play ‘Egg Russian Roulette’ on ‘Tonight Show’

Houston Texans star and host smash eggs against their heads in not-so-deadly game

Houston Texans defensive dynamo J.J. Watt dropped by The Tonight Show Friday to engage Jimmy Fallon in a showdown of Egg Russian Roulette. In the not-so-deadly game, Fallon and Watt picked an egg, each decorated like a mini-football, from a carton of a dozen. Of those 12 eggs, six were raw and yolky while the other six were hard-boiled. To determine which were which, Fallon and Watt had to pick an egg at random and smash it against their own forehead.

The elusiveness that Watt shows off on the defensive line Sundays during football season was in full display early on as the three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year managed to avoid a raw egg in the opening round; Fallon, however, got splattered by his pick.

However, the defensive end wasn’t as lucky with his second egg. After cracking the egg against his forehead, it didn’t burst open; instead, it spilled loose in Watt’s hand… which resulted in the Texan consuming the raw egg like it was melting ice cream. “You can’t eat raw egg! Not in New York state,” Fallon yelled. Thankfully, Watt survived Egg Russian Roulette when Fallon’s second egg also exploded all over the host.

Also on the show, Watt and Big Bang Theory star Jim Parsons added another layer to the ongoing Justin Timberlake Inception Mug odyssey.
