I'm a super huge fan of his... I would not have called him competitive at all. But I didn't see that particular show either. It's usually part of his schtick. I've been a fan since SNL and he just keps getting better. I'd say he was one of the most genuine "celebrities" out there.
Can't say i'm a big fan of Jimmy Fallon, a bit fake, as i saw a few of his shows on CNBC on sky, he seems very competitive & a sore loser, when i saw the ep when Jennifer Lawrence was on days before the 1st Hunger Games came out, as the two were shooting arrows & hoops with a big bucket of KFC & Jennifer won & Jimmy wasnt a happy bunny after it, (more like boil it! lol)
But recently tuned in & i think it was the last ep on where he was in The Born in the USA mode singing about Chris Christie & then for The Boss to come out in the same gear as Fallon was funny i got to say!
