Jimmy Fallon's Viewers Share Some Terrible Tips With The #WorstAdviceEver Hashtag

So many facepalms.

As Jimmy Fallon's latest Hashtags segment proves, sometimes it's better to go with your gut than to take other people's advice. The Tonight Show host asked viewers to tweet the worst wisdom they've ever received with the hashtag #WorstAdviceEver. Our suggestion to check it out, on the other hand, is excellent advice.

The questionable tips included everything from putting your phone in the microwave to dry it out to frying bacon shirtless to avoid grease stains. Needless to say, don't try either of those things at home.


Interestingly, two of the tweets Fallon shared had to do with job interviews. One viewer's brother advised her to "maintain constant eye contact with the interviewer and never blink." Another fan tweeted a friend's advice to smoke weed before the interview "so if you show up to work stoned they won't know the difference."

There's no word on if those users took the advice, or whether they got the job. But we'll go out on a limb and say you shouldn't try it out at your next interview.

Check out a few of our favorites that didn't make the cut, including one from the host himself:
