Extended Cut – Ellen Gives a Deserving Family the Single Biggest Gift Ever!


Earlier in the show, I told you
we had the biggest surprise we have ever done for one family. And when I say it’s
big, it is big. We met the Daniels
family last November when they entered a contest to
sit in our Skybox for the 12 Days of Giveaways. After the show, we
learned more about them. And I wanted to help. Take a look. Our first GEICO Skybox
winners are here today. Now you’re the ones
who sent a little note saying that that video
spiced up your love life. And– True story! True story! That’s right. [LAUGHING] And I don’t know why you felt
the need to write it in a note that you made
incredible love after– don’t get too excited up there. We can see you. [LAUGHING] It’s so good to see you again. Yeah. It’s good to see y’all again. This is crazy! I know. So you’re going through
a tough time financially. It’s just hard. With four kids, we’re in a
two bedroom, two bathroom apartment. They share a room. And we’re grateful
for what we have. But it’s hard. Christmas is really tough
for a lot of people. And it was really tough for you. But, RJ, I want you
to tell everybody what Christmas means to you. To me, Christmas isn’t
about getting presents. But it’s about giving
presents to others, because seeing
other people smile, it just makes me feel good. Isn’t that– [APPLAUSE] So I know you watch
every single day. So why don’t I just give
you every single thing we gave away on all 12 days? Oh, my god! [MUSIC – “THE MOST WONDERFUL
TIME OF THE YEAR”] Oh, my god! [SQUEALING] Oh, my god! [SCREAMING] (SINGING) With the kids
jingle-belling and everyone telling you– So, this morning,
Jeannie surprised them at their apartment in
Hawthorne, California. And this is what happened. Hi, Ellen. I’m here in
Hawthorne, California, about to surprise
the Daniels family. [KNOCKING] Who is it? Um, it’s Jeannie! Oh, my god! [SCREAMING] [GIDDY LAUGHTER] Hi, you guys! I need you all to listen
up really carefully, OK? You have 10 minutes
to get ready, because I am taking
you somewhere. I cannot tell you where. I cannot tell you why. You just have to trust me. So go get ready! Go, go, go! Go, go, go, go, go, go, go! Hurry! OK, come on, we
brushing our teeth? [INAUDIBLE] Have we got that? Ryan, you got
everything in here? Right this way. Grab your bags. Don’t forget– we
can get that later. Whoo! Go, go, go! Hurry! Hurry! In! In! In! In! I cannot believe it! Y’all crazy! Where are we going? [GIDDY LAUGHTER] We may not be able to tell
you guys what’s going on. But you’ve got to trust me. Y’all trust me? We trust you. We trust you. I trust you 1,000%. [MUSIC – PHARRELL WILLIAMS,
“COME GET IT BAE”] (SINGING) Come get it, bae. Come get it, bae. Come get it, bae. Come get it, bae. [SQUEALING] Whoo! Whoo! Whoo! All right. So that was earlier. I’m told they’re
pulling onto the lot. And we’re going
to– hear they come. They’re going to be coming
through those doors. They didn’t even know
they were coming here. They realize that now. [LAUGHTER] [SCREAMING] [MUSIC – PHARRELL WILLIAMS,
“HAPPY”] (SINGING) Because I’m happy. Clap along if you feel
like a room without a roof. Because I’m happy. Clap along if you feel like– This whole thing is crazy! I love it! [SQUEALING] I love you! I love you! Oh, my god! [CHEERS, APPLAUSE] Oh, my goodness gracious! Oh, my god. All right. Hi! Hi, there, Ellen. Y’all are very trusting. Yeah. You didn’t know
where you were going. You just gotten a van. We had no idea! Yeah. Here you are! So hi! Yeah. Surprise! It’s for real! Yeah. So, well, we’re going to– we have to take a break, anyway. But I just wanted
to say you’re here. And you probably wonder why. Because, last time
you were here, we gave you all 12
Days of Giveaways. Yes. Thank you. And then, so, this
time you’re like, well, what are we doing now? So I’m going to tell you. But we’re going to take a break. And then I’ll tell you
why you’re here, OK? OK. OK. All right, we’ll be right back. We’re back with
the Daniels family who we’ve all grown very
fond of around here. We just couldn’t stop talking
about you when I met you. And I just love your kids. I think they’re amazing. And so here’s what we
love about y’all is that, no matter what you’re
struggling with, no matter how you’re living
paycheck to paycheck, you still want to pay it
forward, you still help others, right? And even with the 12
Days of Giveaways, you helped somebody
out at Walmart, right? Yeah. It was a family behind me. And they had a newborn baby. And I just paid for their item. And we were doing
little things before. But since the show, you have
sparked something else in us. You inspired us. You make us want to do
more, go really hard. We love you. But we’re not the only
ones who love you. We found some other
people who love you. Wow. What makes Robert
and Christy special, they can go to any party, and
the party could be a zero. By the time they step
into the room, it’s 100. Having Robert as a
brother has inspired me to want to be a better person. Because I watch how much he’ll
go out of his way for others. When you find people that
are truly genuine– sorry– you do have to hold
them near and dear. It’s just great, all the support
that he gives, not only me, everyone else. It’s been hard for big raising
the four boys in the two bedroom. Sometimes, there’s
things that they need. It’s just was such
a blessing when Ellen picked the video of them. And I’m so thankful to Ellen. When I saw them on the
show, I was tickled! It just really touched my heart
to see that everybody gets to see what I get on the daily. They deserve the world, because
they really are nice people. They look out for all of us. I cried. It was tears of
joy, because that is of family who most
definitely is well-deserving of a blessing. Oh! All right. [APPLAUSE] I can tell that
means a lot to you. That touches you a lot. All right. So you’re here
because we’re going to do something big that we’ve
never done for any family ever. It’s the biggest
thing we’ve ever done. Let’s do some
breathing exercises. Let’s just– Oh, he’s crying. Let’s just take a breath. Let’s just take some
breathing, just deep breathing. You feel good? That was so special. I know. I know. That was really special. All right. OK. Thank you. You’re welcome. Do you want a sip of water? Do you want to– No, I’m OK! No, you’re OK? You sure? All right. OK. So you like Cheerios? Yeah! Yeah, I love Cheerios. It’s a wonderful cereal. They’re a wonderful– I like Cheerios. It’s a wonderful company. Because they put a lot of
positivity and make good go round in the world. Because they really care
about paying it forward. That’s their whole thing. And I’ve gotten to know the
people of Cheerios very well. Because I’m partnering with
them for this pay it forward, do good. And they want to do
two things for you, OK? So there’s two things. The first thing they want
to do is give you $500,000. [SHOCKED MURMURS] [INAUDIBLE] [CHEERS, APPLAUSE] [SCREAMING] Thank you. That’s one thing. That’s one thing. We’re going to take a break. And I’m going to give you– [SOBBING] –we’ll come back and give you
the other thing after this. We’re back with
the Daniels family. We just surprised them with
$500,000 from Cheerios. And that is going to
take care of a lot. It’s going to take
care of your debt. It is going to take care
of college for your kids. For sure. You’re in a
two-bedroom apartment. You can buy a house now. So that’s going to
do a lot, right? Thank you so much! But thank you, Cheerios! Yeah, thank you,
Cheerios, is right. We love Cheerios! I just have to tell you that
you are a true humanitarian. And I love you. I’ve always loved you from– every since I’ve watched you. And you’re always giving. And I just wish that,
if nothing else, I just want to tell you that,
from the bottom of my heart, we really, really love you. And we always have. Well, I love y’all, too. I’m so glad I got to meet you. I’m so glad you entered that
contest to be my dancing elves. Because that’s
how this happened. All right. So I said we have
two things, right? Yes. So Cheerios wants
you to have $500,000, because they want you to take
care of all of your needs. But they love that you
give back to the community. That’s why Cheerios is doing
this, because they’re all about One Million Acts of Good. We’re always looking for
people to write into us and tell us what they’re doing. Because we want to spread
this around in the world. And they know that you
love to pay it forward. So now the $500,000 is for you. They’re giving you another
$500,000 to pay it forward however you want. We’re going we’re going
to follow you around. And you’re going to– Oh, my god! [APPLAUSE] That’s $1 million! That’s $1 million! That’s $1 million! Look at that! $1 million from Cheerios! Oh, my god! Oh, my god! [CRYING] [CHEERS, APPLAUSE] Let’s say hi to your family. [MUSIC PLAYING] Ellen! Hi, Ellen! Thank you so much! Oh, my god, Lee. Oh! I want to thank Melissa
McCarthy and Richard E. Grant. And a big thanks to Cheerios. Cheerios, thank you so much. I’ll see you tomorrow. Be kind to one another. Bye. Hi, I’m Andy. Ellen asked me to remind you
to subscribe to her channel so you can see more
awesome videos, like videos of me
getting scared, or saying embarrassing things, like
ball peen hammer, and also some videos of Ellen and
other celebrities, if you’re into that sort of thing. Ah! Oh, [BLEEPED] God [BLEEPED]
