Simon Cowell pulled an epic prank on Sofia Vergara on Tuesday’s “America’s Got Talent”.
The media mogul brought back “comedy danger act” Ryan Stock and Amberlynn Walker to trick the newest judge after she made a comment about preferring “stuff that is dangerous.”
Vergara said earlier on in the show, “When something horrific is going to happen, that’s what I love about this show.”
Cue Cowell’s genius plan.
“AGT” fans will remember Walker accidentally shot a flaming arrow into her partner’s neck on live television during the season 11 semifinals. So, when the duo invited Cowell and Vergara up on stage, the judges were, unsurprisingly, less than enthusiastic.
Cowell told the pair, “I’m not ‘chicken’. I just value my life. And with respect, you are the last two I want doing anything with me.”
Vergara was then blindfolded and told to shoot the crossbow at Cowell, who had set up the prank to pretend like she shot him in the chest.
“I gotcha!” he then told her while lying on the floor, as Terry Crews shouted they needed a medic.
“You know I’m Colombian, and you know we take revenge,” a shocked Vergara later told Cowell.
