  • All right, I want to read an email I got from a viewer named
  • Tracy Brandon.
  • "Hi Ellen, my name is Tracy.
  • I'm a single mother to a beautiful boy named Miles.
  • Miles and I watch your show together every day,
  • and it never fails to make us laugh.
  • So I'm writing to say thank you.
  • You have no idea the impact you've made on my life.
  • My coworkers called me Smiles because no matter what
  • I'm going through, I always make sure to smile.
  • And watching you is what keeps me smiling
  • through the tough times.
  • So keep doing you, Ellen, because you really
  • do change people's lives.
  • Love, Tracy."
  • So Tracy, right now, is backstage in a dressing room
  • with Jeannie.
  • Let's check in.
  • We're going to use our Cisco technology.
  • And Tracy thinks that she's being
  • interviewed for EllenTube.
  • She's one of my biggest fans.
  • Let's just-- Jeannie, obviously, is in on this.
  • Jeannie, if you can hear me, blink five times really fast.
  • Blink five times really, really, really, fast.
  • All right.
  • And then put one-- left hand way in the air.
  • Put left hand way in the air.
  • Like, way high.
  • Yeah.
  • Great.
  • Great.
  • Wave it around.
  • Wave the hand around like that.
  • Right.
  • And blink really fast.
  • Just keep blinking really, really fast.
  • That's great.
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • All right.
  • I'm going to surprise Tracy right now.
  • Get it.
  • Let's pop in right now.
  • Hi.
  • Hi.
  • Hey, Tracy!
  • Hi, Ellen!
  • What's going on, Tracy?
  • I'm doing great.
  • You know, just chilling.
  • Good.
  • Good.
  • You're sitting there with Jeannie?
  • Yeah.
  • Yeah.
  • Yeah.
  • We're talking.
  • Yeah.
  • Yeah.
  • Yeah.
  • We're talking right now.
  • Yeah.
  • She's-- Jeannie, she doesn't seem to be that surprised.
  • Tracy, you're not that surprised, are you?
  • No.
  • No, I'm not that surprised.
  • Why aren't you surprised?
  • But I'm glad to meet you, though.
  • Yeah, yeah.
  • Yeah.
  • You're not supposed to be surprised, because we're not
  • surprising you.
  • Because you're an actress that we hired.
  • We're surprising Jeannie.
  • Jeannie, come on out here.
  • What?
  • No, you're not!
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • Oh, my gosh.
  • Oh, my gosh.
  • When I was telling you to blink, and then I
  • started telling you to raise your hand,
  • that you just did it--
  • Well, I do whatever you say.
  • You're my boss.
  • Move your hair.
  • Here, move it.
  • And I thought, oh, you know, this
  • is this normal thing that you tell people what to do.
  • Right.
  • So I was like, oh, this is funny.
  • Yeah.
  • And then when she wasn't getting scared I was like--
  • or when she wasn't surprised, I was like--
  • I know.
  • It's Ellen.
  • Like, no one has ever done this before!
  • I know.
  • What do I do?
  • I saw you just, like, keep pointing, like, it's Ellen.
  • Like, do you recognize--
  • Yeah.
  • You're just going--
  • Everybody knows who she is.
  • Yeah, no.
  • She's an actress.
  • We hired her.
  • We're surprising you.
  • So this is your 10th anniversary being on the show.
  • No.
  • Yeah, it is.
  • Oh, no.
  • 10 years.
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • I'm literally in shock right now.
  • I know you're in shock.
  • You were just sitting in the audience one day, 10 years ago.
  • And this is what we have gone through together--
  • Oh, no.
  • --in 10 years.
  • Hello?
  • Hi, is Jeannie there?
  • Yes, this is her.
  • Hey, Jeannie, it's, uh, Ellen DeGeneres calling.
  • How are you doing?
  • Are-- are you kidding me?
  • No, I'm not.
  • How are you?
  • So you've entered every contest, and you've never
  • won one contest.
  • No, I haven't.
  • All right.
  • Do you know why I'm calling you?
  • Um--
  • To tell you you still have not won anything.
  • Nothing.
  • What do you need?
  • I need a job.
  • A job?
  • Yes, ma'am.
  • I mean, I'll clean your bathrooms.
  • OK.
  • I don't know why we wouldn't bring Jeannie to see a show
  • and see if she wants to clean a bathroom or something.
  • We like your personality.
  • So we talked about it this afternoon.
  • We want to offer you a job here.
  • [CHEERING]
  • Are you kidding?
  • Yes.
  • Oh my gosh!
  • Jeannie is outside West Virginia right now.

  • It's Ellen!
  • You're talking to Ellen!
  • Oh!
  • Trish and her family live in South Hero, Vermont.
  • And it was way too cold for us to bring them here.
  • So we sent Jeannie there.
  • It's negative 6 with a wind chill of negative 28.
  • Hi!
  • Please let me inside!
  • Jeannie!
  • Jeannie!
  • Oh my god!
  • That's you.
  • You're the little one.

  • And they're right behind you, Sascha.
  • Oh my god!
  • You are kidding me!
  • For the past 10 years, I have gotten
  • to be a part of giving the most amazing things to really
  • wonderful people.
  • Hey, Jeannie, it's Ellen DeGeneres calling.
  • That was the phone call that changed my life.
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • I've really got to say--
  • I really do-- I have the best job in the whole world.
  • And getting to work for you and work with all these people--
  • she's the best.
