Jay Leno: NOT a big fan of Trista Sutter. On Friday’s series finale of “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson,” the former “Tonight Show” host shared an awkward story about the original star of “The Bachelorette.” It seems like he thought she was such a bad guest, he didn’t even remember meeting her. Check out the video below.

With regard to Leno’s thousands of guests, Ferguson wondered, “Did you ever get tired? Did you ever kind of glass over when they were talking sometimes?” Leno said yes. “The classic example is, I had one of these reality stars on… Trista! From one of these ‘Bachelorette’… I couldn’t be less interested. I’d never seen this stupid reality show, had no idea what it was.”

After the show with Sutter ended, Leno told Ferguson he went out to the parking lot. “There’s this woman standing with her boyfriend. She goes, ‘Hey, can I have a picture?’ I say, ‘Sure. How you doing?’ She goes, ‘Good.’ I said, ‘What’s your name?’ She goes, ‘What?… It’s Trista.'” Oops.

In response to Leno sharing the story, Sutter tweeted, “After 10 yrs, ironic that I’m the topic of convo on @CraigyFerg last show. Thx 4 the shoutout @jayleno! Next time, plz mention my book. ;)” Check out the video below. If you missed the rest of the final episode of “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson,” check out the highlights by clicking here.
