Ellen TV: Audience Members Dancing Naked
Ellen DeGeneres explained that recently she talked about the popularity of nudity in television, and said that apparently her audience members thought that meant she condoned being naked, so when they danced before the start of her show, they did it naked!
Now the clips were obviously edited, but it was hilarious to see the faces of Ellen’s audience members as they saw their heads on tops of naked dancing bodies. So funny! “Your families will be so proud,” Ellen joked.
Ellen: American Ninja Warrior Parking Lot Challenge
She said she may not condone naked shows, but one show she loves is American Ninja Warrior. She had the obstacle course built right in her parking lot, and then of course had to give the course a shot herself.
She played the clip of her attempting the course. Ellen bound through the quick-tilt steps like they were nothing before getting to the cat grab walls and flying over them like it was easy! When Ellen got to the swing net, she flew through that as well before flying up the warp wall in record speed.
Whether she used a body double or not, Ellen owned that obstacle course! “What do you think about that, Sam Rubin? Suspect?” Ellen joked.
Ellen TV: IKEA Furniture, Game Of Thrones Character Or Swedish Curse Word?
Ellen said it was fun, but it was stressful. She asked how many people could use less stress in their lives and the audience cheered. She explained that IKEA has a new program called The First 59, about how to make the first hour of your day less stressful.
She said one way she likes to relieve stress is by playing games. She wanted to play a new game called IKEA Furniture,Game of Thrones Character or Swedish Curse Word.
Ellen wanted to play with an IKEA expert so she called one of their customer service representatives to see if they will play with her. A man named Kevin answered and when Ellen asked for someone Swedish, he apologized and said they had no one Swedish there. Ellen then told him who she was and asked if they could play a game. “Absolutely, Ellen,” Kevin said.
Ellen explained that all Kevin had to do was tell if the word Ellen said to him was a piece of IKEA furniture, a Game of Thrones character, or a Swedish curse word. If he got enough right, everyone in her audience would go home with a $200 IKEA gift card.
The first word was “hurdal” and Kevin said it’s a piece of IKEA furniture which was correct! The second word was “hodor” and Kevin said it was a piece of IKEA furniture, but it was actually a character on Game of Thrones. The next one was “slampa” and Kevin was correct in saying it was a Swedish curse word.
Kevin did great, so everyone got a gift card!
