Shawn Mendes was in the hot seat on The Late Late Show on Monday night (Nov. 7) when host James Corden roped him into a distanced round of "Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts" while confronting him with hard questions about his girlfriend, Camila Cabello. Mendes also joined fellow guest Matthew McConaughey to talk about the close relationship they've built based on the legendarily laid-back actor's decision to mentor Shawn over the years and help him navigate the sometimes tricky waters of fame.
The tense round of "Spill," opened with a real gut-twister, with Corden asking Shawn to rank his favorite collaborators from best to worst. "I really came in with a lot of confidence today that I was going to be able to not eat anything," said a pained-looking Mendes when asked to 1-2-3 Camila, Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber. He considered it for a second, pronouncing Cabello number one for sure and the race between Swift and Bieber as too close to call. That meant diving into a square of blood and pork jelly that Mendes said he would likely eat a a Michelin-starred restaurant in Norway, no sweat, only to spit the slimy mess out instantly. The first challenge for Corden was no big deal: name all the members of BTS. No mixed bug trifle for James.
