The host was presented with an unexpected gift during the premiere episode of season 19 of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” She was so thrilled that she wanted the complete set!
On Monday, September 13, 2021, Ellen DeGeneres interviewed fellow television show host Jimmy Kimmel. The episode happened to be “The Ellen DeGeneres Show’s” final premiere episode for season 19.
She began by gifting Kimmel a plastic donkey gadget that dispensed cigarettes from its behind. Kimmel was quite grateful for the present that he surprised her by informing her he had a gift for her as well.
DeGeneres was surprised by the “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” host and couldn’t believe he’d gotten her something. He explained he got her a "traditional gift" to celebrate the 19 years her show had been on the air.
Trying to drag out the surprise, Kimmel asked DeGeneres if she had any idea what it was. He then hilariously revealed to the host that her present was a Kardashian!
To DeGeneres’ surprise, an actual human Kardashian walked out to greet her! “Keeping up with the Kardashian’s” Kim Kardashian appeared dressed in a black jumpsuit with matching gloves and announced:
“I’m all yours!”
A shocked DeGeneres got up from her seat to welcome Kardashian, and they gave each other hugs. The show’s host admitted the reality star was the best gift she’d ever received.
According to ABC News, the final season of her talk show, promised to be a “huge celebration.”
DeGeneres was in awe and proudly told her audience she now had her own Kardashian. Kimmel quipped she could add to her collection by getting a Khloé, Kendall, and Kourtney, and DeGeneres agreed she wanted to collect them all now that she had one.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the decision to conclude the longtime talk show had been under discussion for years. In May 2021, DeGeneres discussed the decision for the first time with the publication.
She said her show was ending in 2022 because she didn’t find it challenging anymore. Her wife, Portia de Rossi, and brother were some of the people who encouraged her to end it.
According to ABC News, the final season of her talk show promised to be a “huge celebration.” Fans could expect to walk down memory lane to see early appearances by stars like Justin Bieber and Rihanna.
