Gal Gadot gets Jimmy Fallon to try gefilte fish for the first time
January 1, 2021
(JTA) — Gal Gadot may act in American blockbusters these days, but she’s still an Israeli through and through. So there are some quintessential foods she has never tried.
Jimmy Fallon took advantage of this fact for a tasty segment with the “Wonder Woman” actress on his late night show last Monday night. Gadot tried for the first time egg nog (she was not a fan of it), a Ho-Ho and Taco Bell, which she absolutely loved, saying “This is the best so far.”
In response, Fallon tried two Jewish delicacies on camera: a sufganiyot (jelly donut popular during Chanukah), and gefilte fish, to which Fallon said was “Not bad!” after gagging for a second over his at-the-ready trashcan.
It’s not the first time that Gadot tried a new food on Fallon’s show — she tried a Reese’s peanut butter cup back in 2017.
Gadot’s “Wonder Woman 1984” film debuts in theaters on Christmas, but due to the pandemic, it’s also premiering on HBO Max on the same day.
