Ariel Elias on Jimmy Kimmel Live

Ariel Elias made her broadcast network TV debut Monday night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, thanks to how she handled a bad heckler in a video that went viral earlier this month.

If you hadn’t seen said video, not to worry. Kimmel played a clip from the clip in setting up Elias’ appearance, as well as noting not only how well Elias handled the boorish behavior from audience members at Uncle Vinnie’s, but also in using Kimmel’s own Tweet as leverage to book this gig. Kudos all around!

Elias joked here about some lingering insecurities. Not among them: whether or not she and her husband will have kids.
