Concetta Potenza aka Jimmy Kimmel’s Aunt Chippy On Golden Bachelor
Gerry Turner, the star of The Golden Bachelor, meets Concetta Potenza, often known as Aunt Chippy, during the show’s premiere. You might find it interesting to know that Aunt Chippy is the aunt of talk show host Jimmy Kimmel.
Jimmy has pulled numerous practical jokes on his Aunt Chippy over the years. It appears that Aunt Chippy is the major target of the late-night talk show host’s show, from hiring a crew to paint her house bright orange to continually scaring the living daylights out of her on her 80th birthday. Nevertheless, Aunt Chippy occasionally returned to the show.
Concetta Potenza has been on the receiving end of so many pranks by her nephew, Jimmy Kimmel, that she doesn’t know when or where he’ll strike next.
“Nothing is sacred,” Las Vegan known to Kimmel’s viewers as Aunt Chippy. “If Jimmy comes to my house, I will check every single room for microphones, hidden cameras or whatever. And I make sure I go to bed fully dressed with makeup on.”
Nearly halfway through The Golden Bachelor’s first show, Aunt Chippy appeared and remarked that Gerry must be “the unluckiest man alive.” Fortunately, her nephew got her on the show after she told Gerry she wanted to see him. She mentioned the comedian when Gerry enquired as to who her nephew was.
They laughed a lot before Aunt Chippy entered the mansion and playfully said to the other ladies that she was “in the wrong place.” She unfortunately didn’t spend much time watching television because, can you blame her, she eventually fell asleep? Inordinately late! Gerry even claimed that it was his latest wake-up time ever.
Before the rose ceremony began, the cameras cut to Aunt Chippy on a couch, who was sound asleep. In the climactic scene, host Jesse Palmer woke her up and instructed her to return home because she had failed to receive a rose. Before joking that she would take the couch home because it was so comfortable, Aunt Chippy called Gerry an a-hole in jest.
