In the first episode as host of the Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon called out those who doubted he would make it and urged them to make good on their $100 Tonight Show bet. As it turns out, many celebs never thought he would make it.
Celebs of many different standings arrived to pay off their Tonight Show bet. From super star actor Robert De Niro, former Mayor of New York Rudy Giuliani, boxer Mike Tyson, musicians Lady Gaga and Mariah Carey and celebs like Kim Kardashian and Lindsay Lohan all came by one after another to give Fallon the $100 they owed him.
The best part of the skit though was when Stephen Colbert came by to pay his Tonight Show bet in pennies, dumping a pale full of them on the new hosts head.
