Right now I want to play a game. It’s so big you’re going to remember it forever. Open those doors, because it’s time to play mega memory. The game is simple. You flip over two cards and if they match, you win that prize. If they aren’t a match, I’m going to give you two more tries to find a match. Some prizes are better than others, which is what makes it exciting. Our first contestant is Michelle [? Margraf. ?] Come on down. Hello, Michelle. Hi. Hi. Tell me about yourself. I’m Michelle, I’m from Akron, Ohio. I’m a kindergarten teacher. Aww. Oh, my God, you’re Ellen! Here, you can hold this– and it’s a fun game. So just pick one number right now. 12. 12. Let’s turn that over. Ellen underwear, that’s not bad. All right, pick another number. 17. 17. 55 inch TCL Roku TV. OK, turn those back around.
All right, try two more. All right, five. Uh-huh. $5,000 gift card from Gap. 10. 10. Some Crayolas. All right, turn those around. One more try. Seven. Seven. Ooh. I got this. And five!
