The one where Jennifer Aniston surprises a courageous nurse!
On Thursday’s at-home episode of “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” host Jimmy Kimmel talks with Kimball Fairbanks, a cardiovascular nurse from St. George, Utah, who recently tested positive for the coronavirus.
While she isn’t sure if she contracted the illness from a patient, Fairbanks has been furloughed from her job and must be quarantined away from her family, including her two daughters, ages 4 and 18 months old.
Though she initially felt “like she got hit by a train,” the brave medical worker says her symptoms are now “decently manageable.”
Halfway through the interview, Kimmel completely shocks Fairbanks by introducing Aniston into their video chat.
“We wanted to cheer you up a little bit, so I’d like you to meet somebody. Her name is Jennifer,” Kimmel said.
“Hi, honey, it’s so good to meet you,” Aniston exclaimed. “I just have to say, God bless you and all of you that are out there doing what you’re doing. I just, I don’t even know how to express my gratitude to everything that you guys are doing, putting your health at risk and all of that. You’re just phenomenal.”
After Fairbanks reveals she has been “having food delivered” to her, Aniston surprises the nurse with a $10,000 gift certificate from Postmates.
Additionally, the delivery company will give gift cards to all the nurses on Fairbanks’ floor.
After her quarantine is over, Fairbanks believes she will be able to see her kids, as well as go back to work, on April 8.
