Late Night Shows Filled With Te’o Jokes

January 18th, 2013| by

As soon as news broke of the Manti Te’o girlfriend hoax, you had to expect that the late night shows were going to have a field day with the story.

The fine folks at Terez Owens were kind enough to post clips from “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”, “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and “Conan” of each host weighing in.

Here’s how each host lampooned the situation:

  • Kimmel – He showed “the only known footage of Lenay Kekua,” revealing that she is in fact a snuffleupagus.
  • Leno – “They’re calling this the biggest hoax involving Notre Dame since they were ranked No. 1 in the nation.”
  • Conan – “He’s being accused of fraud, deception and plagiarizing me in high school.”

Watch the clips in their entirety below to see which late night host you think killed it the most.
