Ellen: 12 Days Presents
Ellen kicked off her show by joking that she doesn’t let anyone see the gifts she gives for 12 Days of Giveaways. She hides the gifts in a room in the back and puts a sign on the door that says “Gym.” That’s how she knows no one will find them.
Ellen TV: Two Siblings Opening iPads
Ellen showed a cute video of two siblings opening iPads. One sibling opened it up and realized what it was right away and yelled with joy. The other one opened her box, but only found the charger. She screamed with joy over the charger without realizing she had an iPad, too.
Ellen: Big Snow Balla Game
Ellen had a game between two audience members, Susan and Stephanie. They were competing to see which one would win all of the gifts from the 12 Days of Giveaways so far. Susan was such a jerk during the game that I was pretty sure this was a prank to introduce 12 Days. But it turned out it wasn’t a prank. Susan was just a jerk.
The game was the kind of game where Ellen put a snowball in the center of a table and asked a question. When one of them thought they knew the answer, they were supposed to grab the snowball. Susan did a lot of snatching the ball away from Stephanie. Twice, when Stephanie clearly had the ball, Susan put her hand on top of hers and pretended she got there at the same time, even though her hands were on top of Stephanie’s.
Susan also was snooty with her answers. I just really wasn’t into Susan. I don’t think she deserved winning all the presents from 12 Days thus far, considering she was so mean to Stephanie and was so unsportsmanlike like.. But ultimately, both women did win the prizes, and they gave each other a big hug at the end, so I guess there was no bad blood.
Ellen TV: Into The Woods
Ellen said that she’s excited for the new movie Into the Woods, which comes out Christmas Day. It’s been nominated for a few Golden Globes and a lot of actors are in it, including Johnny Depp and Meryl Streep. Ellen showed a clip where it introduced all the actors in the film, which the trailer claimed included Angela Lansbury, Alex Trebek, Papa John, and Nick the Gardener.
Ellen: Incredible 11-Year-Old Dancer
Ellen then invited back Taylor Hatala, an incredible 11-year-old dancer, who performed a dance with her choreographer Matt. Taylor’s last appearance on Ellen received over 8 million views and her other videos have more than 30 million views.
She was just an incredibly talented dancer. It’s crazy that someone so young could have so much talent. After the performance, Taylor said it’s been crazy to have this amount of success. Ellen saved two seats in the audience for Taylor and Matt and told them that they’d be getting everything Ellen was giving her audience.
