10 Reasons Why People Thought Jimmy Fallon Was an Alien Body Snatcher, and We Solved the Mystery

Jimmy Fallon has been bringing joy and laughter since 2014 to one of America’s most popular shows, The Tonight Show. As host of the show, Jimmy has had the opportunity to meet top celebrities and take traditional interview formats to experiences where celebrities themselves unleash their personality. He has earned the love of the audience due to his friendly personality and cheerfulness in every episode.

1. He is not afraid to make fun of himself

Jimmy doesn’t hesitate to wear a wig, a dress, and even lipstick. He likes to do sketches with celebrities as if the studio were his own playground. For the Ew! skit, he portrays his character Sara and invites other celebrities to be part of his gang and give each other hilarious advice and funny dance tips while taking lots of selfies.

2. He brings out the best in people

The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon seems like a safe place for guests where they can just be themselves. Dua Lipa went through a rough patch in 2017 when people made fun of her dancing. However, she grew from that incident and became a better artist.

She opened up about that experience with Jimmy and brought back the infamous dance move, teaching him how to shake those hips.

In the same episode with Dua Lipa, he not only brought out the best in the singer but also arranged a special moment for a fan. Papa Richy, an 80-year-old grandfather, went viral on TikTok as Dua Lipa’s biggest fan. Jimmy welcomed him on the show and fulfilled his dream of dancing with the pop singer.

3. He does the funniest skits

Jimmy Fallon is always up for action. The talk show has long since moved on from the formal desk interview to become a space where both guests and host can let their goofy side come out and make fun of themselves. What makes him different from other TV hosts is that he is not a stand-up comedian, but he combines his acting skills to make the most hilarious skits next to his celebrity guests.

From lip-sync battles to movie skits and viral videos, he makes sure everyone has a good time tackling their funny personality.

4. He is respectful with everyone

Jay Leno, the former host of The Tonight Show has stated that the best word to describe Fallon is respectful. He is a good listener who waits for the other person to stop talking. In a business where most people think they know it all, Fallon remains humble and speaks highly of his competitors, Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel.

5. His interview format feels like he’s talking with a best friend

When it comes to interviews, there’s no better feeling than hearing your favorite celebrity open up as your best friend would do. Instead of giving his guests a hard time and trying to win over the audience, Jimmy makes the interview a pressure-free environment.

As a result, we have honest conversations that flow. It’s like watching 2 friends catch up on their lives without the formality of traditional interviews. And in the host’s words, “You are allowed to be silly”.

6. He is a master in comedy and musical impressions

Young Jimmy Fallon always dreamed of becoming a comedian. While studying computer science, he never gave up on his dream and performed comedy in small clubs. When he has 21 years old, he was discovered by an agent. Although he was still quite an amateur, the agent saw natural talent in him.

After trial and error, a long road through auditions, and a few movie roles, he became a TV host. In a span of just 5 years, he went from Saturday Night Live to one of the most respected franchises in entertainment The Tonight Show. Proving that he not only had the talent but also the determination to work hard to pursue his dreams.

He is not only a fan but a talented impersonator. He has shown us how easily and quickly he jumps between his best Chris Rock, Adam Sandler, and more in just 2 minutes. Also, he has some good guitar skills, which, combined with his sketches, make him a master of musical impressions.

He can perfectly imitate various iconic singers, and also share a good time with other boy bands like the Jonas Brothers.

7. He is the creative mind behind the games

There’s only one thought that crosses our minds when we see Jimmy Fallon messing around with celebrities — we want to be a part of that too. These creative and fun games give viewers a unique and up-close look at the celebrity’s personality and, of course, also create some hilarious moments.

From the famous “Box of Lies,” to the game “This or That” or “Wheel of Impressions,” all these games created by Jimmy Fallon have us laughing on the edge of our sofa. The good thing is that we can also play these games with our friends at home.

8. He is the best father

Jimmy likes to keep his family life private from the media but sometimes likes to share heartwarming photos with them. He married producer Nancy Juvonen in 2007, and since then, they have formed a loving family with his 2 daughters, Winnie and Frances.

When the show had to be broadcast from home, his 2 young daughters liked to make short funny appearances during the episodes. We, as parents, could relate to the host’s efforts to remain calm while his children were jumping on him.

9. He loves his job

It’s all about passion, and it shows. He has explained that he never did it for money or fame, but because it was his dream. After going through some crazy moments, he finally found his place as a host. He has a deep love for pop culture, and being a part of The Tonight Show has opened the door for him to work with talented people and take his creativity to the next level.

Since his start on The Tonight Show in February 2014, Jimmy Fallon has attracted around 4 million viewers each night. Climbing in numbers that are even higher than his predecessor. And that’s not even mentioning the various skits he has done that have gone viral on YouTube.

Whenever we look at Jimmy’s face, we can catch that singular look on him. That natural smile that he makes when he is on stage cannot hide the excitement he has for each show. He is living his dream every day, and the best thing of all is that we are sharing it with him.

10. He never forgets where he comes from

Jimmy Fallon isn’t afraid to share photos from the past to show off his humble roots. He always keeps it real on his Instagram and has shared that he has followed his dream from day one. Even back in his school days, he was known for his outgoing personality, and in his eighth-grade yearbook he was voted “Most Likely to Replace David Letterman.” And that’s definitely something that came true.

Bonus: He is a hero in real life.

Actress Anya Taylor-Joy shared her story of when she met Jimmy Fallon, and he saved her from having a disastrous experience at the 2018 Met Gala. “He saved my life. [...] I was wearing a dress that was ridiculously heavy, and I couldn’t really move. I was just kind of trying to get through the evening and at the end of the night, I’m at the top of the stairs, and the gorgeous Hailee Steinfeld walks past me and has a very complicated, like, 3-train thing, and I get wrapped up in it.”

In the middle of that situation, Fallon caught her and held his hand out to pull her out of that situation. And as Taylor-Joy remembers, he was so sweet.
