Ellen DeGeneres just pulled an Oprah Winfrey and surprised her ENTIRE audience with a free trip to Australia! The audience will be joining her later this year when she films her show on the other side of the globe. The trip was made possible with Swisse Wellness and Qantas as the sponsors.
Appropriately, Nicole Kidman was the special guest of the day and before the big surprise, the two were talking about Australia and what Kidman recommends Ellen do there. There’s one spot in Australia that Kidman joked is magical because she believes she got pregnant there. Then Ellen joked, “If i get pregnant it’s a real miracle!” LOL!
Ellen then mentioned that Australia Day is also her birthday and on her birthday she likes to give presents. So, she led the audience to believe that one lucky person would get the chance to win a trip to Australia. She then dropped the bomb that the entire audience is going and the confetti was let loose. The reactions are my favorite part: Jumping up and down, screaming, crying… the whole nine yards. Watch the funny and heartwarming clip below.
