Jimmy Fallon came up all wet after a trivia showdown with Kelly Ripa.

The two talk show hosts battled in the "Tonight Show Pop Quiz" Wednesday night. Each contestant was seated in a barber's chair beneath a water balloon, with a pointed dunce cap on their heads.

"Tonight Show" announcer Steve Higgins asked questions to the hosts, who had to answer correctly or have their chair slowly raised. If they got it right, their opponent's chair went higher.

After he failed to answer which album was the first commercially-released CD ever (Bruce Springsteen's "Born In The U.S.A.," BTW), Fallon's hat popped the four-gallon water balloon, drenching him in his suit.

As Ripa laughed (while wearing a rain poncho), Higgins evened the score, raising her chair two steps until she, too, was soaked.
