Jimmy Kimmel should have known not to mess with the Royals. Or actor and KCK native Eric Stonestreet.
You see, the host of “Jimmy Kimmel Live” made a bet with Stonestreet before the World Series began.
If the Royals won, Stonestreet got to shoot Kimmel with a paintball gun inside a bouncy house.
And Stonestreet was working on his shot even before the World Series title was won.

But we don’t blame him.
On Wednesday, Kimmel and Stonestreet settled the bet once and for all, with the help of Royals players and World Series champs Jeremy Guthrie, Drew Butera and Mike Moustakas.
Let’s just say Kimmel never stood a chance.
“I don’t remember inviting them to shoot me,” Kimmel said of the Royals players.
Even guest Seth Rogen joined in on the paintball parade.
Later, Jeremy Guthrie posted a photo of the group to his Instagram account.
“Hope the welts heal soon!” he wrote.
Here’s the group photo posted by the official account of “Jimmy Kimmel Live”:
Better luck next time, Jimmy.
