Military Mom Gets The Ultimate Surprise On 'Tonight Show'
Kristin Danley 11/26/2018
The Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon hosted a special episode just for veterans and their families. The auditorium was packed with military members, but little did one know he had the ultimate surprise up his sleeve.
Jimmy decided to have a person from the crowd join him on stage to play the hilarious game called "The Whisper Challenge." He cranked the handle on a gold metal cage and spun around ping pong balls imprinted with numbers.
He reached in and plucked out No. 418. Yet, no one jumped up right away to claim the number!
The camera panned across the crowd and couldn't find the willing participating. That's because she was hiding her face, embarrassed.
After a lot of nudging and prodding, the woman named India finally made her way down the steps to the stage where Jimmy outfitted her with a microphone. She couldn't believe she was on TV and he couldn't believe she was so reluctant!
"I've never seen anyone react like this in my lifetime."
She leaped up from her chair and spun around in complete disbelief that her husband who was on deployment was there, right in front of her! She threw her arms around him, smooching and hugging him, then gave Jimmy a big bear hug.
Everyone in the audience stood and clapped at this awesome surprise orchestrated by Jimmy and The Tonight Show staff. But Jimmy isn't done with the surprises yet!
He announces that there's one more surprise -- but it's actually two. A huge one for the couple and a sweet one for India's husband.
