Bloopers That Make Us Love The Ellen DeGeneres Show Even More

Ellen DeGeneres’ beloved daytime talk show
is hilarious even on a bad day, but when things go wrong, it gets even funnier. And when things go bad, DeGeneres and company
roll with it, reminding us why we love the show so much. If you can crash a scooter on set, get injured,
and still laugh about it? That’s a show we want to watch. These are some of the most knee-slapping mishaps
that have ever happened on Ellen! The guy who needs more hugs When DeGeneres cold-called an H&R Block accountant
to ask him questions about taxes, the conversation took an unexpected turn. “Hello?” “Hi, is this Keith Dickey.” “Yes it is.” “Hi Keith Dickey, my name is Ellen DeGeneres,
how are you?” “Just fine.” After a brief conversation, she asked him: “Yell out Keith Dickey is the greatest accountant
in the world! Keith Dickey is the greatest accountant in
the world.” Then, she gave him one more assignment: “Yell out I need a hug!” But instead of “hug”, Keith yelled, “I need a ho!” “No, no, no no…” DeGeneres and the shocked audience completely
lost it. “Listen. Good luck to ya, I hope that works out!” On-air payback Ellen is notorious for scares and surprises,
both for the guests and staff, to the point that Glee actress Lea Michele once said after
a particularly gnarly surprise, “That’s it! I’m not coming on your show again. I can’t.” The show has pranked everyone from Kristen
Wiig to Jack Black. And Taylor Swift was so shocked she slipped
and fell on the floor. But actor Steve Carell decided it was time
to flip the script on Ellen, and give her a fright of her own. “I couldn’t think of anyone better to share
my 900th show with, please welcome… “Ellen DeGeneres!” “Oh my God!” “Yes!” But don’t worry, Ellen got hers. “I was prepared for it! Awww!” Worst free TV ever For a holiday-themed episode in 2008, Ellen
gave away new flat-screen TVs. The only problem? Not every TV survived the episode. DeGeneres laughed so hard she cried, then
announced to the audience, “And one of you is getting this!” But props to the hot cocoa for never breaking
character! Need for speed Ellen loves to mess with everyone on her show,
but when she tried play a prank on executive producer Andy Lassner, things went very, very
wrong. DeGeneres had been riding an electric scooter
for a previous segment, and rode it onto set. She later explained, “I thought it would be fun to pretend to run
over Andy, in a nice, loving way.” But instead, Andy jumped out of the way, and
Ellen ended up plowing into a crowd of people. She later recalled, “My knee got caught and I was trying to get
off, but I was still kind of going.” The next day, she revealed that she had in
fact been injured in her 2 mile-per-hour accident. “So I’ve got like a purple swollen knee…thank
you.” And while she hadn’t previously needed a scooter,
she did now. Don’t try this at home Giant prop mascara wands should come with
a warning: don’t put them in your eye! But that’s what DeGeneres did when she and
Modern Family star Sofia Vergara filmed a fake German Cover Girl ad. “We’re both easy, breezy Cover Girls…I’m
breezy and she’s easy.” But the real entertainment was in the outtakes. Ellen pretended to use the mascara wand on
Vergara’s eye, but apparently got a little too close for comfort. “Look what you did now…what the f— did
she do?” Vergara’s eyelash was the clear victim in
the incident. “Am I ok?” “No.” “It’s ok? It’s ok, let’s do it.” Luckily, Vergara didn’t suffer any long-term
effects. All for the cameras When DeGeneres took her show to New York in
2015, Justin Bieber made a surprise appearance. “Please welcome my east coast gardner, Justin
Bieber.” “What’s up?” “Justin Bieber!” Then, he and Ellen decided to blast some swag
into the audience. “Before we go to break, I thought we would
maybe pass some T-shirts out, right?” “Cool, lets do it.” The first few shots went fine, but then Bieber
aimed straight into the lens of a camera. “Whoa…” Bieber looked surprised, but was it really
an accident? It may end up being one of the great mysteries
of the universe, but it sure was funny. You can’t play the player Country music legend Garth Brooks pranked
Ellen staffer Tracy when he appeared in a “mirror” she was standing in front of. “Oh my god you just made it so much better.” So Tracy’s co-workers decided to pay Brooks
back. The plan was simple: a staffer would jump
out during the interview and scare him. But that’s not quite what happened… Brooks wasn’t scared at all, but instead seemed
concerned for the possibly injured prankster. “That was the worst scare we’ve ever done. It didn’t work in any way.”
