Jimmy went to Houston to play a game of one-on-one basketball against Texas Senator Ted Cruz in what we called the “Blobfish Basketball Classic.” The reason this happened is because after Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals, Jimmy showed a picture of Senator Cruz at the Houston Rockets game and he likened him to a blobfish. Cruz did not like that so he challenged Jimmy to a game of one-on-one for charity. It’s been a dream of Jimmy’s ever since he was a little boy to one day play basketball against the most disliked member of the U.S. Senate and that dream finally came true. So, here it is, Jimmy’s on-court interview with Ted Cruz. We have already raised more than $80,000 for Texas Children’s Hospital and Generation One.

Kimmel vs Cruz – Blobfish Basketball Classic


  1. Used to like Jimmy…this was hard to watch. Imagine being out classed by Cruz? And getting spanked on the court. Ouch it will be hard to recover from this Jimmy

  2. At least the beta boy got a participation trophy at the end

  3. All liberals are good at is running their mouths.

  4. 245 pounds of legal genius vs 185 pounds of stupidity that perceives itself as funny

  5. "Unfortunately all that talk can't get Jimmy Kimmel a bucket!"

    Lmao. How did I not know that this game happened?

  6. Nah if you lose to Ted Cruz in any athletic you can’t ever show your face in public again 😂

  7. You really know how much people hate you when you actually win the game, yet the other guy gets the MVP Trophy. lol

  8. I'm not a Republican or even American but when I watched this when I was in highschool I stopped being a jimmy kimmel fan. He's the male ellen. He's shown how mean he is.

  9. Bro Ted Cruz do be lookin like a blob fish tho

  10. Jimmy should of spend more time practicing his game not his jokes even tho he needs to do both 🤣. Jimmy is a socialist loser, Trump2024🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  11. I am no fan of Ted Cruz but he actually come off as a class act and kimmel is kind of a sleaze ball!!

  12. HAHAHA! They are trying to make it sound like people are booming Cruz, but you can tell that not true. And whats with th foul? He didn't youh the shrimp! He just touched the ball.

  13. Cruz acted how you hope your US Senator would act

  14. Liberals always get trophies for losing

  15. At least you got a participation trophy 😂

  16. This was very awesome of you. I love Ted Cruz

  17. Karl Malone would disapprove of jimmy performance

  18. That's how democrats play. They lose and then give themselves a trophy and pat on the back. I think that's how the demented old mafioso got into office. It's not like the people elected him.

  19. Is there anyone more classless than kimmel

  20. I can't believe how fast these guys ran out of gas. Was that the speed up part?

  21. As much as I dislike Cruz, I think Jimmy should have been courteous. I mean it was for charity and there were kids present.

  22. I would watch presidential debates if this is how they were

  23. Holy crap, Jimmy is sooo cringeworthy. He takes the L

  24. Liberals have no class.. Jimmy actually had to insult Cruz's daughter to her face..

  25. Kimmel you are utterly disgusting telling that to Cruz's children

  26. I don't think people really understand that jimmy was trying to get the crowd to one understand the topics, 2 get in Cruz's head and 3 get disliked.

  27. Should not of put down Cruz to his little daughter. Bad form

  28. Jimmy could have toned down the trash talk. I'll give it to him, it was funny, but not really the place.

  29. Wonder how Jimmy Kimmel would feel if Ted Cruz said to donate to the NRA 😂😂😂

  30. What does Kimmel mean “if there were any you should’ve done something about that too”? Obama was the one who put litterally majority maybe even around 90% of all the kids in detention centers

  31. How tf jimmy end up with a trophy for loosing tf

  32. Winning mvp getting absolutely gassed by a dude you called a blob fish is low key super pathetic lmfao. Kimmel has no right to say Ted Cruz has no balls when he got gassed that easily. And then to give himself MVP after losing. It’s sooooo cringe lol

  33. Jimmy Kimmel being a disrespectful doucher? No sir….
