Ellen Celebrates ‘Game of Games’ Season 4 with ‘Danger Word’!


[APPLAUSE] Thanks, everybody. Happy Tuesday. Have a seat. Thanks for being here. Oh, boy. I’m glad to see you. This last audience
we had was a real– [GROANS] [LAUGHTER] Not y’all. You seem like lovely
people, the kind of people I can share good news with. Hey, listen, I have some really
good news, really good news. Do you want to know what it is? Yeah. Oh, boy. I’m not good at keeping secrets. When I have good news
I want to tell people. And so I just– but I’m trying to drag it out. You, lady, right
there, you, yeah. I want you to guess. Just stand up. Guess. Guess what it is. Are you coming out at straight? [LAUGHTER] No. No. No. Keep guessing. Oh, are you making a sequel
to your 1996 classic Mr. Wrong, Mr. Wrong II,
Electric Boogaloo? No, but that is a good idea. Thank you. Sit down. OK, isn’t that annoying
when people say, you know, guess, and then– I should just tell you
because I’m excited about it. You’re not going to
be as excited as I am. Maybe you will. I think you’ll be excited. I’m really excited though. OK, [INAUDIBLE]. [APPLAUSE] I just found out
that my Game of Games is coming back for
a fourth season. [CHEERING] I’m so excited. I love this show so much. It makes me so happy. It’s games. I love games. It combines all my favorite
things– prizes, surprises, you guys. I’m sure you’ve seen it,
but if you haven’t, you’ve been missing. Three seasons that
we’ve had so much fun. Here’s some of the fun we’ve
had the past three seasons. Welcome to my Game of Games. It looks like a game show
that went on spring break and drank too much tequila. [SHOUTING AND SCREAMS] All the games are tested
and ready to go– well, at least they’re ready to go. Oh, that’s a shame. Eat. Oh, Christopher, wow. What is it? Tell me. It’s sweet, it’s my favorite
ice cream– favorite ice cream. Vanilla ice cream. No, but my mom makes it for
me for dinner, for dinner, all the time, every
day, every day. We need to talk to your mom. Ways to say hello in
a different language. Wasup? (SINGING) You gotta get up. You gotta get up. Gotta get up. Gotta get up. Oh, they’re terrible at this. I am forced push
this right here. I’m terribly sorry. Cranberry. [SCREAMING] [INAUDIBLE] $100,000. Ellen, I love you. I love you too. She’s gone. I don’t know where she went. (SINGING) Gotta get up. You gotta get up. You gotta get up. You gotta get up. You gotta get up. You gotta get up. I love knocking people
down in a loving way. [CHEERING] There’s a brand new episode
tonight at 8:00 on NBC. And did you know that you
can even play along live with the show using
the Game of Games app? Here’s how it works. When you’re watching
the show, you look for the penny
on your TV screen. You scan it on your
phone’s camera, and then you’ll use it on the
free scratcher on your app. First, the first
winner was Kyle. He won $10,000 just
for watching TV. I know. Good for Kyle. Oh, look how tiny he is. Weird. Tonight we’re not giving
away one $10,000 check. We’re giving away two. You know what? No, I want to give away three. Yeah. No. Dammit. I can’t believe I’m
doing this, but tonight in honor of season four, we’re
going to give away four people $10,000 cash, four, $40,000. All right, but right now
I want to play a game, and it’s hard to pick which
one because I love them all equally. It’s like asking my favorite
child, which is Karen– I’m kidding. If I had a daughter, I’d name
her Ellen Jr. Let me think. Oh, let’s play Danger Word. If you see your name on
the screen, come on down. [SCREAMING] Hello. Hello. Hi. Hi, hi. Stand right here. Who are you? I’m Joy. Hi, Joy. What do you do? Where do you live? I work at Disneyland and
I live in Orange County. All right, and you are? I’m Emilie. I live in Anaheim, and I’m a
Tutu School ballet teacher. Oh. And y’all are friends? Yes. OK, good. And you are? I’m Lisa. I am from Gilbert, Arizona,
and I’m her mother. And I’m so excited to be here. I’m excited to have you. And you are– I’m Lauren. I’m her daughter. And I’m from Gilbert,
Arizona, as well. OK, so you both agree,
mother and daughter. OK, great. All right, to verify each other. OK, you were going
to be playing. Let’s see, who likes
to get the messiest? Really? All right. She volunteered you. Whoever’s better at giving– huh? Emilie’s going to get messy? Oh, you have no choice. Emilie, you’re getting messy. Go sit down on that
stool over there. You’re each going to be playing
for the side of the audience you’re sitting on. So you’re playing for a really,
really, really good prize. I can’t say what it is. [CHEERING] All right, so let’s split
the audience in half. All right. [CHEERING] So, even if you came
together, only one side is going to get the
prize, and you’re going to be not as friendly. OK. So, Joy and Emilie,
you’re playing for this side of the audience. Lisa, Lauren, that
side of the audience. All right. Here’s how we play. You’ll see two words, a
winning word and a danger word. You have to get your partner
to say the winning word without saying the danger word. You can only use one-word clues. And if you say the
danger word, I’ll be forced to push this
button, and you’ll be sorry. OK, Lauren, you’re
going to go first. You want her to say the winning
word without the danger word. All right. Eggos. Syrup. OK. Breakfast. Burrito. Maker. Toaster. You’ve got this, definitely. Come on. You’ve got this. Butter. Risky. Pancake. No, no, no, no. Oh, my goodness. I can’t see. No. That’s why you have
the goggles on. All right, so listen. Why is it red? So try to remember,
followup with the next one. Because then she said
breakfast after she said– so that would have been– all right, so now we go to Joy. Niece. Aunt. Leaves. Season. Season. Fall. Emilie. All right, I’m assuming you
have a niece named Autumn. I do. All right, she said niece
and pointed to herself. So her niece would be Autumn. And then she said season. No. You have no one to
blame but yourself. I’m sorry. [INAUDIBLE] Close your mouth. Close your mouth. All right, you have to be
very, very careful now, Emilie, because– all right, they have no strikes. One more strike and you’re out. And the other side
wins the prize. All right, stand on this. All right. Be careful. Ballet. Shoe. Dress. Tutu. Tutu. Rip. Dance. Legging. Tights. [CHEERING] All right. Oh, my God. I’m going to give you all a head
start to the parking garage. Because once these people
hear what they did not win, this side of the
audience is coming back for 12 Days of Giveaways. [CHEERING] They are so mad at you. Oh, my God. OK. All right, well, we had fun. The most important
thing is we had fun. We’ll be right back after this. [MUSIC PLAYING] Y’all are coming back too. (SINGING) It’s the most
wonderful time of the year. With the kids jingle belling
and everyone telling you be of good cheer. It’s the most wonderful
time of the year.
