Kim has been very upfront over the years with Ellen about her paralyzing fear of spiders.

Kim admitted that "It's so fun to be scared," but she still begged Ellen not to try scaring her.

Even though Kim persisted she didn't wish to get over her fear of spiders; Ellen insisted. Kim tried to warn Ellen by saying, "I'm never going to get over it!." However, that didn't stop Ellen from pushing the envelope a step further.

Ellen's pranks on her talk show have a history of going a little too far. Some of them even creep into the danger zone. In a famous backstage prank, Ellen startled musician Taylor Swift to the point that she fell into the wall and collapsed into the floor.

Another regular victim of Ellen's practical jokes is "Modern Family" star Eric Stonestreet. He was frequently forced out of his seat in a fit of fear. Sarah Paulson is another person who always had to watch her back while in the hot seat. There was always someone lurking under the coffee table, waiting to terrify her.
