Ellen, Here’s My Talent
Ellen is going to give $10,000 to one of her talented viewers. She’s been trying to do this for a while, but she keeps getting really stupid videos of people trying to jump rope with their butts.

May Day Of Giveaways: iPad Mini & Backblaze Subscription
Ellen thought that waiting until December is a little much, so she put together a bunch of giveaways for one day in May. That day was today!
She gave her guests $200 to Athleta, a website of clothing designed for women by female athletes. Next, everyone got a Blendtec blender that makes everything from smoothies to margaritas and more! Yum. Tiki Hut not included.
For relaxation, she sent them to a five star golf resort that just finished a $30 million renovation on their spa. Finally, to upload all of your movies, music and pictures the audience got a one-year subscription to Backblaze, a service that backs everything up so you don’t have to. To play with all of that stuff on the go, Ellen gave the audience iPad minis.
