Priyanka Chopra seems to be making it a habit of beating host Jimmy Fallon at his games. The actress made an appearance on Jimmy Fallon's The Tonight Show yesterday (21 September), and was just as game for another challenge. 

Chopra has been on a career high with her television series, Quantico, garnering fame, and her recent appearance at the Emmy Awards with Tom Hiddleston. The actress certainly enjoyed her time at the Emmys, and said, "I walked out with this big train and I did it for the first time 'cause it’s so pretty and I felt princess-y and after I twirled once I was doing it all night! All of the photographers were asking me to twirl and then onstage Tom made me twirl and I was always only twirling. I’m the twirling dancing emoji now!" 

The twirl onstage with Hiddleston became a talking point for the press, which is now agog with rumours of the two dating. However, Chopra doesn't seem bothered with all that. She declared she is enjoying living in the city of New York, and travelling for her shoots. The actress even showed off her passport collection to Fallon, saying she goes through one passport a year, and has run out of pages to stamp in nine others.

However, the main event of the show was the 'apple bobbing' contest between the host and Chopra. The actress was quick to poke fun at Fallon saying, "If I remember that challenge didn’t go well for you." Fallon had lost a chicken wing eating contest, the last time Chopra was on the show.

Apparently, this time was no improvement. Although, the Mary Kom actress did start tentatively, saying, "I just want to say I’m not American and I had no idea what this was until he told me," she did manage to pull in 5 apples with her teeth. Fallon had no such luck and ended up wet, and embarasssed. To add insult to injury, the pretty actress then went on to teach the host the right way of 'bobbing for apples'. 

Well, Chopra just won't lose. As for Fallon, well, how do you like 'em apples?
