Ellen: Thanksgiving Know or Go
Ellen started off the show a bit different than she usually does. She decided to skip her monologue and go straight to playing some games with the audience. She brought out the Know or Go platform for a Thanksgiving version of the game.
Ellen got three contestants from the audience and explained she was going to be asking a series of questions, all about Thanksgiving, and whenever one of the contestants got a question wrong they were going to be dropped. The last person standing is going to win a prize.
Ellen: Cranberry Sauce & Thanksgiving 2012
Ellen asked Nicki which month is Thanksgiving celebrated? She answered November and didn’t get dropped. Ellen next asked Mallory to name something she was thankful for. She said she was thankful for her baby boy. Ellen went to the third contestant, Priscilla, and asked her to name the fruit used in cranberry sauce. She hesitated a second but answered cranberries.
In the next round, Ellen asked Nicki to name three NFL teams. She answered with the New England Patriots, the San Francisco 49ers and the Dallas Cowboys. Ellen asked Mallory who her least favorite relative was, but Ellen stopped her before she could answer. She next asked her what boat the pilgrims came to America on and she couldn’t remember. She just said pink.
Ellen: Black Friday 2012
With one women down Ellen continued by asking Priscilla what the day after Thanksgiving is known as. She said Black Friday. Ellen asked Nicki why the police arrested the turkey. She said for saying “gobble, gobble,” and Ellen said no, because they were suspected of foul play.
Ellen let her keep going even though she got it wrong. She asked her what the national bird of the United States of America is. She said the bald eagle. Ellen asked Priscilla what her mother’s sister’s son would be to her. She said nephew at first but Ellen gave her a second chance and she said cousin, which is right.
Ellen: Plymouth Rock Pilgrims
Ellen told Nicki to spell cornucopia. She tried and got it wrong but Ellen gave her a second chance too. Ellen asked Priscilla to finish this line: “1,2 buckle my shoe…,” and Priscilla said “3, 4 close the door” which is wrong, according to Ellen. She said it is “3, 4 open the door.”
Nicki got the next question wrong, which was to name all five Spice Girls. But she was the last one standing.
Either way, they all won 32 inch Samsung TVs.
