When 23-year-old Jayci Underwood of Provo went into her dentist’s office to get her wisdom teeth pulled, she expected it to be followed by the typical pain and puffy cheeks. Instead, she became a bit of a celebrity.
When Underwood woke up from her wisdom teeth extraction on Oct. 17, she felt loopy from the sedatives and devastated that she didn’t wake up to find herself looking like Nicki Minaj. Her husband, Matt, whipped out his iPhone and filmed his wife expressing her disappointment. The result was a YouTube video that gained 20,000 views just a few days later.
“The Ellen Show” contacted Underwood and flew her and her husband to Los Angeles to film a 5-minute segment on the show, which airs today at 4 p.m. on NBC. Watch a clip here.
“The whole experience doesn’t feel real even after all of this,” Underwood said. “We think it’s so funny and it has been such a blessing. We are so grateful for all of it. It’s something we’ll never forget. We are glad everyone could get a good laugh.”
