A Lincoln couple never dreamed they'd appear on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” even after their engagement announcement appeared on the NBC host's desk.
Crystal and Andrew Meister flew to Los Angeles for a taping and two-night stay with all expenses paid.
They were known as the “Jaeger-Meister” couple in 2010 when their newspaper engagement notice made it onto Leno's show. Their combined last names are similar to Jagermeister, a popular alcoholic drink.
Each Monday during his tenure as “Tonight Show” host, Leno featured notable headlines, typos and other newspaper items sent in from readers. Leno invited 10 or so couples to appear on Monday's show as part of his final week. They were told not to wear white or stripes.
Before going on the show, Crystal said she was excited and a little nervous.
“Never in a million years did I think we'd get to meet Jay Leno on his show,” she said.
The Meisters come in at about the 36-second mark.
