ELLEN DeGeneres has gifted her latest studio audience a whopping $1 million to show thanks for each of their acts of kindness.
The birthday bash also ranked #1 in its time period among key Adults 25-54 and Women 25-54 in the Top 3 markets -- NY (1.6/13 Adults 25-54 rating / share), Los Angeles (1.4/12 A25-54 rating / share) and Chicago (1.2/10 A25-54 rating / share).
"When we got married Portia's line was it's good to be loved, it's profound to be understood, and she understands me because that is the best gift anybody could have given me", Ellen said.
Of course, everyone in the audience has a box of Cheerios underneath their seats and soon found out that Ellen is giving them $1 million to share! Her donation to the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund will create a permanent home in Rwanda for the organization that has been protecting endangered mountain gorillas for 50 years.
Ellen gave the big jackpot to her studio audience to mark her One Million Acts of Good campaign with Cheerios. But everyone started crying harder when DeGeneres summed up her unbelievable relationship with de Rossi in a few simple sentences: "I've always said when we got married Portia's line was 'It's good to be loved, it's profound to be understood.' And she understands me because that is the best gift that anybody could have given me". "Happy birthday!" she said.
"You totally forgot about me, you don't even know how old I am".
"It's something that you're really, really going to enjoy. and that you're going to need", she said.
Ellen looking confused while waiting for her birthday surprise. It's like a holiday, right?
Ellen has achieved a lot in her life so far. Jimmy Kimmel showed up in a figure skating costume because, why not? "That sounds like he would for sure do that".
