11:35 pm
we uh appreciate your time. >> from all of us here, thank you for joining us. up next >> dicky: from hollywood, it's "jimmy kimmel live"! tonight -- kevin spacey. from "forever", ioan gruffudd. and music from stromae. with cleto and the cletones. and now, might i add, here's jimmy kimmel! [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> jimmy: very nice. [ cheers and applause ]
11:36 pm
thank you very much. thanks to all of you for coming. very nice. i'm curious because i know a lot of people here on vacation and what not. how many of you watched diane sawyer's interview with bruce jenner on friday night. [ applause ] i did too. i watched it live and the next morning to soak it up. i think he came off very well. he went from being a boring man to a very charming woman. right? i think we might have found our next bachelorette. the interview got huge ratings. 17 million people tuned in to watch and it did not disappointment. i have to say the most shocking part of the interviewer for me is when bruce told diane there was only one full-length mirror in the kardashian house. i find that impossible to believe.
11:37 pm
bruce also said that so far kim has been the most accepting of the kardashians and the easiest to talk to. he said kim credited kanye west, her husband, with helping to understand how important it is to be true to yourself. i agree but to a point -- you should be true to yourself until yourself feels like walking on stage during someone else's acceptance speech kicks in. [ cheers and applause ] but good for kanye. it says a lot about a family when kanye west is the voice of reason but good for kanye. among other things, bruce jenner identified himself as a conservative republican. he said he believes the house and senate leaders john boehner and mitch mcconnell will support him and advocate for transgender issues. his quote was i think they would be very receptive to it. oh, yeah, of course they will. they are probably having the buttons printed as we speak. billboards, banners, maybe some
11:38 pm
foam fingers they sell at games. they are not booing. they are saying bruce. john boehner and mitch mcconnell had no comment today on that comment. one thing bruce did not divulge during the interview is what his new female name would be. it is traditional to take a new name. he said he didn't want to reveal it because the media will go crazy and he will never get rid of it. i happen to know the real reason he didn't share it with diane wyer is because his new female name is diane sawyer. he wanted to let her know privately they would be sharing a name, which is the right thing to do. it's considerate. one nice thing about a new name, he can get stuff monogrammed. it is tough to do that when your initials are b.j. i'm happy for bruce jenner. i'm sure this is a great relief after hiding out all of this time. turns out all of these years instead of the kardashians we should have been keeping up with him.
11:39 pm
>> jimmy: meanwhile, justin bieber is still is dude for the most part. he crashed a high school prom over the weekend. high school prom was going on and justin showed up. is that crashing or creepy? i'm not sure. justin was supposedly on his way to a recording session next to the prom and decided to stop in. of course everyone went crazy. [ screaming ] >> jimmy: i think i might want to crash a high school prom to see if anyone there would have any reaction at all. [ laughter ] i feel bad for the boys at the prom. you spend three weeks working up the courage to ask the girl you have a crush on. she says yes. you rent a tux, maybe a limo. you take her to dinner. you have to figure out how much to tip. finally it's time for the slow dance, justin bieber walks in and that's that.
11:40 pm
she spends the rest of the night on instagram. speaking of instagram and facebook and twitter, i have an exciting program i'm about to launch. i'd like you to be a part of it. this is something i have been working on for quite sometime. i call it the finger of shame. as you know, people are the worst. they are -- people do inconsiderate things all the time. it's driving me crazy. the people who, like, take forever to get out of their parking spot when you are waiting, people who talk loudly on their phones at the grocery. people who don't hold the door when you are coming in behind them. the terrible people. you know who i mean. the people who need to be stopped. tonight, i'm launching a campaign to raise awareness of this, to hopefully slow it down a little and here's how it works. if you see someone misbehaving you give that person the finger of shame. not the middle one. this is the finger of shame. when you happen upon a disgraceful act, i want you to point your finger and take a
11:41 pm
photo of what is going on with the finger. i will show you how it goes. all right. what we did is we asked our staff to do a little test run to get the ball rolling. here's some examples. these are all real. someone in our parking lot parked in two spots. for that you see they get the finger of shame. with the hashtag there. next we have one of our writers, josh. texting while crossing the street. finger of shame. guy wearing a bike helmet, bike shorts, bike shorts no shoes, no bike. finger of shame. this gentleman is taking up the whole mat at the gym, which i guess is a no-no. this had to be explained to me because i don't go to the gym but he gets the finger of shame. someone recording a concert on
11:42 pm
an ipad, finger of shame. and last but not at least, this woman is painting her nails while driving her car. this vehicle was in motion. we caught her magenta handed. oprah would go berserk if she saw this. finger of shame. so from now on when you see something like this going on, point a camera and point a finger and send it to me or put it on twitter or instagram with the #fingerofshame. we don't want to damage property or do anything illegal. it should be things happening in public. use common sense. together we can do something. we can reestablish shame in this country. it is disappearing. one finger at a time. we have a good show tonight. we have music from stromae, from "forever," ioan gruffudd is with us and kevin spacey from "house of cards" on netflix. an interesting fact i learned today. kevin spacey not only one of the
11:43 pm
most talented in showbiz he has the distinction of being one of five american actors who's not an avenger. did you know that? as you know we are in the middle of a drought here in california. we got some rain over the weekend but not enough. thing s have gotten so bad our governor imposed mandatory water restrictions for the first time ever in our state. of course we use a lot of water in california to grow things like tomatoes and marijuana, but we waste a lot of water. we also need to do our part to not waste -- water is kind of an important part of our diet, so we put together this psa to encourage californians to stop the waste. i'd like you to pay attention to this because sometimes jokes are not jokes.
11:44 pm
>> due to a severe drought, the governor has ordered californians to cut back on water use, including showers, lawns and water-based practical jokes. including water balloons. [ bleep ]. sink spray heads. and water bottles. burden of proof -- [ bleep ] wasting water is no laughing matter. paid by california's for dry pranks. >> jimmy: that's -- get back to the water-related fun. this comes from a local fox affiliate in st. louis. on thursday night they had a story about a fro-yo experiment gone awry. >> this is in the university city fro-yo. watch as the customer throws money at a cashier. then the cashier throws a bowl of frozen yogurt at the customer. >> on my face, clothes, shoes, everywhere, my head.
11:45 pm

[ laughter ] >> jimmy: it's the "i'm not gay no more" guy. he got hit with a fro-yo. his name is andrew caldwell. he won the prestigious "jimmy kimmel live" clip last year. he loves women and fro-yo apparently. we tracked him down. there he is. we have him standing by. when we come back, we will learn everything there is to learn about andrew.
11:46 pm

11:51 pm
i like women. women, women, women, women! >> jimmy: so he found -- well, we found one woman he doesn't like at all. last week, andrew was the victim of a serious yogurt throwing incident at a fro-yo store. he claims they used a slur against him. we saw on video she threw his fro-yo right in his face. >> the cashier tells me she had never seen the viral video. police arrived at the fro-yo moments later. stephanie was left with a court date for third degree assault and andrew was left with a face full of frozen yogurt. >> i filled it up to the top and i had kit-kat and reeses on it. >> jimmy: joining us live from st. louis please say hello to andrew caldwell. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: first of all, andrew,
11:52 pm
do you have any idea what a fan i am of your work? >> yes, and i love it. >> jimmy: you do. okay. i'm so excited to talk to you. first, do you normally put kit-kat and reeses on your frozen yogurt or was this a special occasion? >> it was a special occasion. i love it. >> jimmy: if you knew it was going to be thrown in your face would you have chosen softer toppings, like gummi bears or mini marshmallows? >> yeah. i would have chosen that. >> jimmy: walk us through what happened on this terrible day at the fro-yo store. >> i walked inside the store i'm like, let me get some frozen ice cream. >> jimmy: right. >> so i got frozen ice cream and she looked at me and said, oh, my god. that's the guy from the video. >> jimmy: oh, i see. okay. >> when i set my frozen yogurt on the scales to get it
11:53 pm
weighed -- because they have to weigh it by the ounce. so i got me reeses and kit-kats. >> jimmy: got ya. >> when i got the reeses and kit-kats, she said [ bleep ] and i'm like, excuse me? and i'm like, to myself, did she just call me a [ bleep ]. and then she started speaking spanish. then when i said, i need to speak to a manager because you just called me a [ bleep ] and she said, oh, i am the manager. and i said i need to speak to somebody else. the dog. i called her a dog. >> jimmy: do you mean snoop dogg or what up dog. >> like snoop dogg. >> jimmy: all right. i see. so then you had an exchange with her? >> yes. when i set my ice cream on the
11:54 pm
scale she stood back. she took my ice cream from the scale and threw it in my face. >> jimmy: we saw that yeah. >> i threw my money but i didn't throw it and i gave it to her and she threw my $10 bill. >> jimmy: she did, okay. we saw that on the video. boy, it's a good thing you didn't order hot fudge. that could have been a really bad -- >> right. my skin would have been burned. >> jimmy: was this the first time you made it rain on a frozen yogurt store employee? >> yeah. this is the first time. >> jimmy: we asked the cashier who threw the yogurt to join us tonight. her employer said she is not allowed to speak to the press anymore. this is what she told the news. >> that's not true because i'm gay. anyone i work with knows i'm gay. >> jimmy: that's a twist, a frozen yogurt twist, right there, isn't it? it turns out that she says she is gay.
11:55 pm
i should say too because i know you are not gay no more. are you gay no more? >> i'm not gay no more. i am delivered. >> jimmy: so will you be writing a yelp review of this store? >> yes, i will. >> jimmy: you will. are you going to sue the store? >> yes, i am. >> jimmy: you are. how much do you think you should get for something like this? >> couple million. >> jimmy: that's a lot of toppings, isn't it? >> yes. a million for each topping. >> jimmy: how did the video end up where you wound up in front of the congregation saying all of that stuff. >> i went up and got up for prayer and when went for prayer. i thought i need to say something. the preacher was talking about men bleeding from their butts. >> jimmy: what? >> and i am like, you know what,
11:56 pm
i'm not gay no more. i'm delivered. i said i will not put on makeup, or wear a purse. i will not. i will love a woman.
