The Ellen DeGeneres Show in Sydney
Ellen DeGeneres has finally touched down in Sydney. She’s been enjoying the harbour,Taronga Zoo and made rumoured trips to some of Sydney’s beaches as well.
On Friday she told fans to get to the Opera House early Saturday morning for a chance to see The Ellen Show filmed in Sydney. I went down later in the morning to have a look and see if I could get some sneaky images of Ellen and her wife Portia de Rossi.
Luck must have been on my side because somehow I made it into the venue and was able to see the full show.
The show started around midday after the crowd was warming up by dance contests and goody giveaways.
Ellen took to the stage and introduced her wife Portia de Rossi and some of the shows regulars to the crowd before getting out Mike the underwear model.
Next up was Russell Crowe. Russell brought along two stock whips for Ellen and Portia and also showed Ellen the tricks of how to wield the whip. Russell also brought out two Rabbitohs plays bringing more gifts for Ellen and Portia.
Another guest at the show was Jessica Mauboy. Jessica showed off her (poor) call of the Kookaburra skills after which Ellen did her hilarious interpretation of it. Not long after a few Kookaburras actually sat on top of the set.
The Sydney Swans also made an appearance and a lucky Sydney couple got to play Ellen’s Gold Digger game and walked away with $10,000 thanks to Swisse.
After a bit over an hour the show was finished and Ellen and others left the scene by boat.
