The U.S. Airman who tackled a terrorist on a train headed to Paris appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live Tuesday night. 

It was the first TV interview for Air Force Airman First Class Spencer Stone, who led the counter-attack against the Avoub El-Khazzani. El-Khazzani opened fire on the train on Aug. 21. 

Stone was slashed with a box cutter in his neck and hand, but managed to save another passenger’s life.

Kimmel had a few surprises up his sleep for Stone.

Jimmy Kimmel Live airs on ABC at 11:35 p.m. Monday through Friday.
