Ellen: Scandal Season Finale
Ellen kicked off her show by talking about how excited she was for the Scandal finale. She said Portia and her watch it every week and they spend a lot of time trying to figure out who the bad guy is. First she thought it was the president, then she thought it was her dad. But then she had it: it was Miss Scarlet in the Billiard Room with the rope.
She said she was excited about the show, but she wasn’t excited about having to wait for months for the next episode. But the break is going to give her a lot of free time, because it always takes a big chunk out of her Thursday night. First, she spends about an hour getting ready, preparing her couch and food and everything.
Then there’s an hour of watching, followed by an hour of recovery. “I’m not good at math, but that’s like five hours extra hours a week,” Ellen said. Ellen said she could use the extra time for some beauty sleep, but she said she had to be careful not to become too beautiful. “My beauty puts people off, so I have to be careful,” Ellen said.
Ellen TV: Scandal Theories & Guillermo Diaz Surprise
Ellen said that if you don’t watch Scandal, she apologized and said that her monologue was over. Now, it was time for her Scandal theories. At first, she thought Huck was bad, because he’s done so many bad things. But now she thinks he’s good. Then she thought Jake was good, but now everyone thinks he’s bad.
Then she thought Olivia’s dad was bad, but now she thinks he’s good. Then she said she thought maybe Huck wasn’t good after all, because she didn’t trust that face. She said she wished someone could be there to help her make sense of the show. Then the actor who plays Huck, Guillermo Diaz, suddenly dropped by.
Ellen: Guillermo Diaz Huck Face
Ellen asked Guillermo Diaz to do the Huck face. So he immediately stopped smiling and made the very serious expression that Huck is known for. Guillermo Diaz said he’s a much happier person than his character and he’ll be laughing on the set and then suddenly it’s time to film and he goes back to a serious face.
Ellen asked Guillermo Diaz a bunch of Scandal questions, but he didn’t answer. Does the bomb go off? Does one of the characters die? Guillermo Diaz just laughed. Then Ellen said even if he told her, she’d be mad.
Ellen TV: Guillermo Diaz Licking Faces
Guillermo Diaz said that in the scene where Huck licked Quinn’s face, they did about 20 takes. He said she was salty because she was crying during the scene and he kept licking her tears. “Oh, you’re sweet to do that,” Ellen said. Ellen said she’d have Guillermo Diaz lick her face, but she had makeup on. Guillermo Diaz said, “You sure?” and the two laughed about it.
Ellen: Easter Photo Oh Nos
Because Easter is just around the corner, Ellen has been receiving some Easter Photo Oh Nos. Several of the pictures were terrified children on the laps of scary looking Easter Bunnies. One of the photos was a sign in front of a church advertising a free family event and at the top it said, “Anal Egg Hunt.” Check out the funny photos below:
Ellen TV: Good Samaritan Rewarded
Ellen did a gag where she sent a fake magician onto the street to see if a good Samaritan would stop and help. The magician dropped his bag of tricks and it all went spilling out onto the ground. Many people walked by, but only one person stopped. The guy who stopped was named Peter and was a student at the New York Film Academy. He stuck around to help the magician fit all of his various gags back into the bag, so Ellen had the fake magician invite him back up to the studio.
When Ellen revealed that she wanted to give him $500, he couldn’t believe it. His voice cracked and his eyes started to water. Ellen gave him another $500 because he was reacting like that and because she said she could tell that he was a good guy. He walked off stage holding his money, absolutely stunned.
