Jimmy Kimmel Burns Hair and Eyebrow Off While Creating Thanksgiving Dinner

Jimmy Kimmel is coming in hot this holiday season!

“Happy thanksgiving everyone. try not to burn your hair and eyebrow off lighting the oven!” he captioned a photo of himself to Instagram with singed hair….well….everywhere.

Shockingly, this is not the first time Kimmel has burned hair off his body while cooking. Last November, Kimmel went on the Ellen Degeneres Show and shared a frightening Fourth of July incident where he caused a “massive explosion” from his barbeque. 

“I haven’t told anybody about this but on July 4th I did a very stupid thing,” he explained on the episode. “I turned the gas on on the grill and then I went for a little walk to look for matches. And then when I came back I thought, ‘Hmm, I should probably open the lid and air this thing out, maybe turn it off and start over again.'”

He continued: “And then I thought, ‘No, I’m not going to do that. What I’ll do is I’ll light a piece of paper on fire, then throw it into the grill.’ I did that, and there was a massive explosion in my face. I burned my beard off and my eyebrow off and my eyelashes off.”

Kimmel added that everyone informed him he was so lucky nothing else happened.

“But it didn’t feel like a lucky stroke when it happened, that’s for sure,” he joked. He then added that, prior to the Fourth of July, he also once lit his tie on fire while starting up his barbeque. 

Are we seeing a trend here, folks?

Earlier this week, the late night host shared a post to Twitter encouraging the public to donate to families in need of a Thanksgiving meal this holiday season.

“Please join us in helping @StJosephCtr feed 1,300 families in LA this Thanksgiving. $30 buys a full turkey dinner for a family of four. My wife @MollyMcNearney & I will match every donation,” he posted to Twitter a few days ago.

And in an update to Instagram, he revealed the good news…

“thanks to everyone who gave to @stjosephctr – @mmcnearney and I matched your donations to feed 1300 families today – we are grateful that an organization like this exists – let’s do it again for xmas!”
