Prominent television host Ellen Degeneres has given fans in the audience $ 1 million to record her talk show as they all contributed to their One Million Acts of Good campaign.

“I want to take a moment to say that everyone in the audience is here for a special reason. Throughout the season, I’ve teamed up with Cheerios to encourage people to do a million good deeds, and when you are here in my audience, you have helped us achieve that goal, “quoted femalefirst.co.uk DeGeneres.

She then asked the audience to look under their seats to see if they had a box of breakfast snacks, since any lucky chair would win a prize. When each person in the 400-seat studio lifted a box, they announced that they would receive an equal share of $ 1 million.

“Thanks to every single person in this audience, it is full of kindness and we have done a million good deeds for all of you. So I want to do something that we have never done before. This is great, okay?

“If you have a box of Cheerios under your seat, I’ll give you a special surprise gift. So make sure you have a box of Cheerios under your seat. What a coincidence that you would all get a box from Cheerios.

“You will all share this gift. It is the greatest gift I have ever given to anyone. And I hope you continue to pay it forward and share all the good. Hold on to your Cheerios because you all share one million dollars ! That’s a lot of money! “
