Day 4 Highlights and Prizes

Highlights

Today was yet another lovely day of Ellen’s 12 Days of Giveaways. She came out as jolly as ever and delivered a charming monologue. Was anyone else flabbergasted when she revealed that Americans are going to spend over $460 billion this year? I’m no financial expert but at least thats some refreshing news about our economy. Moving on…

Hillary Swank jiggied all the way up to the Ellen couch as they played her entrance music. Goodness, that girl really developed amazing core muscles thanks to her Million Dollar Baby strength training. Cirque du Soleil would be proud to see the kind of mid-air kicks she did while holding only on to the arms of her chair. Swank wasn’t the only one working on her physique. Apparently Swank is quite fond of pet fish and was hoping to hook up her Siamese fighting fish with an agility course. Ellen caught wind of her search for one and cheerfully gifted a custom made course to her.

Before calling out her final guest Steve Jones, Ellen reminded the audience about a clip she had shown from the new TLC program Virgin Diaries. In the clip, one of the couples had never kissed before and embraced in what started as a lip-lock but turned into gnawing each others jaws off. One of the couples who were not the same as the ones filmed walked out and admitted how the kiss shown in the clip was pretty bizarre. Ellen goaded them into showing her how they kiss and they comically imitated the exact same style of kissing. Finally, the lyrics of the Most Wonderful Time began floating in the air and the prizes were doled out.

Ellen ended the program with a candid interview with X Factor host Steve Jones. Jones had a few tidbits of backstage gossip regarding the broadcast in which contestant Drew Brees was sent home. A few of his modeling shots from his past career were shown on the TV monitor, much to Jones’ embarrassment. In the spirit of the holidays and in hopes of further encouraging people to tune into X Factor as well as her show, Ellen pulled out a t-shirt that sported a plunging v-neck. Jones indulged her and the audience and slipped into it.

After the last commercial break Ellen came out with the final prize and reminded everyone to be kind to one another.
