Ellen DeGeneres has outdone Oprah by surprising her audience with a gift of $1 million. She is still in celebration mode for her 60th birthday and has continued the party by giving away the biggest prize ever on her show. Ellen, who reached the landmark age on January 26, partnered with Cheerios to celebrate her birthday with a two-day extravaganza, which included surprising the entire audience of people who participated in the talk show’s One Million Acts of Good campaign. “Thanks to every single person in this audience, it is filled with goodness and we have reached one million acts of good because of all of you,” Ellen began as she addressed them on Friday. “So, I wanna do something that we’ve never done before. Hold onto your Cheerios because all of you are splitting one million dollars! That’s a lot of money!” According to editors at Just Jared, her average audience numbers 400, meaning each person may have pocketed $2,500.
