Mind Reader Eric Dittelman Shocks Ellen
Ellen brought out the most shocking mind reader, Eric Dittleman. He asked DJ Tony, Ellen and Ellen’s writer Kevin to make three drawings. Andy the Producer helped him blindfold himself. First, Dittleman put duct tape over each eye, solid half dollars, a blindfold and sealed it with more duct tape.
Dittleman said that some people think he can feel the drawings on the paper, but he said he cannot. He guessed Tony’s drawing was first, which was a dude wearing glasses. It was a little shocking that he could guess out the drawing.
Next, he guessed Kevin’s. He drew a wizard and guessed the cloak and pointy hat. Finally, he found Ellen’s drawing. He was able to sense out wheels with his mind. Also a little guy sitting in the car. Ellen was actually shocked.
“The fun part,” Dittelman said, was taking off the tape. Ellen invited him back again whenever he wanted to come.
Ellen & Shutterfly Donate $50,000 To Weems Elementary School
Ellen’s favorite thing is helping people like this next guest. Weems Elementary School is a title one school. A lot of the kids get free lunch and they had a rift in the community with many international students. In her time there, she has seen a huge spike in grades and test scores recently. The morale is now high among her students.
Angela is the principal and she is very dedicated to her school. She also said she could take Ellen in a dance off. In her time at Weems, Angela has built a team that sticks to a plan of action. After she united the staff, the students’ grades improved.
Rachel, who works at Weems, wrote in about Angela. Jeanie and Rachel were live at the school waving at their principal. Rachel said they are trying to get school uniforms made mandatory at the school and she wanted Ellen to help. Shutterfly and Ellen gifted the school $50,000 to help with their school uniform initiative.
Ellen and Shutterfly also gave the kids yearbooks to document their years at Weems.
