(LOS ANGELES) -- On Monday night's installment of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the host was seen sporting a huge shiner and a bandage on his right cheek.
Through a narrated reenactment -- using a shirtless male model as his stand-in -- Jimmy Kimmel explained that he had hit his face on the edge of his car door while bending over for quarters to feed a parking meter.
He also explained how he didn't let bleeding from his face stop him from having lunch with his fiancé, but later got 11 stitches for not remembering "car doors open outwards."
Kimmel told the audience he was coming clean about the injury because his eye was getting darker by the day.
He joked, "My eye is so black right now Paula Deen apologized to it."
