‘Worst Twerk Fail Ever’ Video Was a Jimmy Kimmel Hoax
Perhaps you saw the girl catch on fire while twerking? Turns out it was a Jimmy Kimmel hoax. About 9 million people saw it on youtube and now Jimmy Kimmel has revealed it was a hoax from the very start.
It turns out "Caitlin Heller" isn't even the name of the girl in the video -- she's a stuntwoman named Daphne Avalon who collaborated with Jimmy on the video.

Kimmel claims that he and his staff uploaded the video, titled "Worst Twerk Fail EVER - Girl Catches Fire!," a couple of months ago and it just took off in the last week thanks to Miley Cyrus grinding all over Alan Thicke's son on national television. You can watch the reveal from Kimmel's show last night where he makes fun of the many news outlets who broadcast the video as a twerking disaster.
Of course, many people questioned the validity of the video, wondering why a) someone would upload such a video to YouTube themselves and b) who exactly twerks by doing a handstand against a door.
