Ellen DeGeneres pranks Kim Kardashian with a fake spider.mp4
Queen of pranks, Ellen DeGeneres, made an attempt to scare Kim Kardashian with her biggest fear - but viewers did not find the scare as funny as the host intended.
Kardashian, 41, made a guest appearance on Ellen this week where she and DeGeneres reminisced over years of interviews and skits. Kardashian explained her favorite memory is when DeGeneres scared her mother, Kris Jenner, so badly she fell over.
"You got her so bad, I've always dreamed of being scared like that," Kardashian said before quickly looking over her shoulder. "Don't try anything," she added.
DeGeneres, 64, assured her she was not going to but the host is known to not keep her word when it comes to pranks. "I'm not going to scare you, but I do what to help you get over something," DeGeneres said.
Before the host could unveil her prank- a fake spider in a cage - Kardashian interjected, "No, no, no, no, no we're not. We're absolutely not. You're not doing this to me."
Kardashian is notoriously afraid of spiders.

The reality TV star quickly got out of her seat as DeGeneres unveiled the cage saying "it's not a loose spider" indicating there was a real spider in the cage.
"No, we've been through this before. I don't care to get over my fear," Kardashian said as she ran toward the back of the studio. DeGeneres insisted Kardashian watch her hold the spider before throwing the fake spider at her.
Audience members laughed as Kardashian ran off the set. DeGeneres laughed along and declared "it's not real," but Kardashian continued to walk off set, waving "goodbye everyone."
Additional allegations of staff mistreatment in 2020 landed DeGeneres in the pile of 'canceled' celebrities. Since then, every interview or prank the host conducts is watched under a microscope and picked apart - including the spider prank on Kardashian.
