Guests on the Ellen DeGeneres Show should know what they’re in for by now – the comedian has made her love and affinity for pranking no secret over the years. Despite regularly making celebrities jump out of their seats, however, DeGeneres still manages to spook a new crop of celebs every season.

In a new hilarious supercut, the 57-year-old shares some of her favorite pranks on some unsuspecting famous faces.

Modern Family star Eric Stonestreet is a frequent victim of DeGeneres’ trademark “costumed person sneaks up from behind” gag. In fact, after being scared twice, the actor brought along his friends to serve as bodyguards.

In the clip, we see Stonestreet’s security method fail, as the host had a team member pre-hid in an ottoman on set. “I’m never coming back,” the star declares.

More highlights:

Nicki Minaj squeals after someone in an “Anaconda”-like outfit pops out at her.

Jake Gyllenhaal attempts to apprehend DeGeneres’ spooky henchman.

Justin Bieber can’t keep it together after a man clad in Calvin Klein surprises him.

Ghostbusters star Kristen Wiig is so scared she lands on the floor in the hysterical video.
