Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts has become one of The Late Late Show with James Corden’s most popular bits and 2019 proved why.

In a year filled with shocking revelations and massive efforts to get to the truth, nowhere were the confessions more eye-opening than on The Late Late Show with James Corden. No, it wasn’t due to congressional testimony or federal investigations. Instead it was all thanks to a little game called “Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts.”

Nothing will ever overtake “Carpool Karaoke” as James Corden’s signature segment on The Late Late Show. Corden has struck content gold with the bit and it has become a necessary part of any artist’s promotion efforts.

But coming in at a close second is “Spill Your Guts.” The game is half Fear Factor, half “Truth or Dare.” Somehow, Corden and the Late Late Show staff have convinced some of the biggest names in entertainment to play the game despite the high stakes.

How much information is shared with the players prior to the game can be debated but one thing cannot: The Late Late Show does not pull any punches when it comes to questions. Whether they are directed at Corden or the celebrity guest, the questions are often exactly what curious fans want to know but would typically never hear answered.

2019 was a major year for “Spill Your Guts” and many of those questions were finally answered. The Late Late Show put together this highlight package to relive all of the most shocking revelations from the year.

Every basketball fan has debated Michael Jordan vs. Kobe Bryant vs. LeBron James. Corden took his shot when he sat down with Bryant and got a straight answer: Kobe is the best. Anyone familiar with Kobe’s competitiveness may not have been surprised to hear him put himself over Jordan. But the fact that he answered in the first place was a bit unexpected.

After that, we see how Corden managed to put some A-list celebrities on the spot. The Jonas Brothers played a round of “Spill Your Guts” during their week-long takeover of The Late Late Show. Halle Berry didn’t hold back when reviewing her own worse movie. And Arnold Schwarzenegger admitted that he knew all about the expletive that made it into a letter he sent as governor of California.

Despite these shocking confessions, Corden and his celebrity guests all managed to survive. The Kardashian/Jenner clan didn’t fall apart at Kendall Jenner ranking the family’s best parents, Halle Berry isn’t struggling for work, and Corden isn’t going anywhere at CBS. Perhaps that is enough proof for even more A-listers to play “Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts” in 2020.
