Of all the games that The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon is known for, "Can You Feel It" may be the grossest (in the funniest way possible).

How to Watch

Sure, the mystery objects that Contestants are asked to identify by touch aren't always unsavory — sometimes they're even delicious! Either way, celebrities must bring no small amount of bravery to the task of sticking their hands in a box and giving whatever's in there a good feel.

Kate Beckinsale

The intense anticipation that comes with playing "Can You Feel It" is the best part—watching Fallon "freak out" over what winds up being a pile of squishy Peeps is a riot.

When Kate Beckinsale played in 2019, the audience got in on the fun too, giving reactions that made her think her box of cinnamon rolls was something much worse. This led the actress to tell Fallon something she probably never expected to say in her life.

"We have a deal—I'll never touch vomit," Becksinsale told the Host. "I'll touch poo if I have to!" (As he assured her, the show would never ask her to do either). A live frog and a human foot, on the other hand...
