Ellen Mint Trick
Ellen always catches a mint in her mouth before starting her show. When people ask her why she does it, she responds, “Mind your own business.” But in reality, she likes to have minty fresh breath, and needs to be prepared for those unexpected celebrity kisses. Plus, it’s fun!
Ellen decided to give some audience members the chance to perform her signature mint move. Norma from Long Beach, California, was pretty excited. She gave it her best shot, but she wasn’t quite as skilled as Ellen. Michelle from Mission Viejo, California, was much better.
Guest DJ Loni Love Boyfriend
Ellen has been helping her friend, comedian Loni Love, find a boyfriend. Loni was today’s guest DJ, so Ellen shared some recent online prospects. Ryan, 21, said that Loni reminds him of his coffee: “hot and black!”
There was also Douglas, a hunky farmer, and Connor, a 16-year-old who probably needs to wait a few years! Ellen’s favorite was Vito, who she actually brought to the studio. She promised to bring him out a little later.
Ellen: Kardashian Holiday Card
Ellen shared the holiday card she received this year from the Kardashian family. The over-the-top portrait features each family member in an elaborate background that looks like a luxurious hotel or casino. It’s nuts!
Ellen and Portia decided to create their own holiday card inspired by Kim and Kanye West’s “Bound 2” music video. It was even more hilarious.
Amy Holiday Shopping At Best Buy
Ellen sent one of her writers, Amy, to do some holiday shopping at Best Buy. However, she could only use song lyrics to talk to people.
Amy spoke in lyrics from “I Wanna Know What Love Is,” “What Makes You Beautiful” and “Call Me Maybe.” People’s responses ranged from confused and awkward to thoroughly entertained. Check it out below.
