Also simple on its surface, The Late Late Show's segment Flinch is one of the oddest games in late night television. Actually, "game" might be too strong a word for it, because we're not sure anyone ever wins or loses. It is absolutely fascinating to watch, though.
How does it work? James fires pieces of fruit from a high-powered cannon at various celebrities, who are standing behind a Plexiglass wall. Despite the protection, everyone from Matt LeBlanc to Jessica Alba and Don Cheadle to Cindy Crawford ends up flinching.
The latest Flinch contestants/victims are Victoria Beckham, Jessica Chastain, and Lisa Kudrow. Do any of these ladies have nerves icy enough to remain still when an apple explodes in their face?
Watch The Late Late Show weeknights at 12:37am/11:37pm c on CBS and stream full episodes on CBS All Access.
