Even when Ellen DeGeneres is home sick, she still manages to keep her celebrity guests on their toes. 

This Is Us star Milo Ventimiglia had his turn in DeGeneres' chair recently when Miley Cyrus was filling in for the longtime talk show host. Despite DeGeneres' absence, the "Can't Stop" singer had no problem carrying out the comedian's plans for the Gilmore Girls alum.

After chit-chatting about his hit NBC show and upcoming Gilmore Girls reunion, Cyrus got Ventimiglia out of his shirt and into Ellen's splash tank—all in the name of a good cause.

"For the third year in a row, we're partnering with Ulta Beauty to raise money and awareness for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation," Cyrus explained to the audience. "Totally worth it! Worth getting objectified," she joked. 

Without hesitation, Milo stripped out of his shirt and shoes and hopped into the lavish tank, complete with a white throne-esque chair.  

"I'm horrible at throwing, so you're lucky," she told the actor. 

Chalk it up to luck or a little white lie, but Cyrus hit the target on the second try, winning a $10,000 donation from the company.
