If you visit Ellen DeGeneres on “Ellen,” you know there’s a real possibility of two things– she’s either going to scare the living daylights out of you or she’s going to royally embarrass you in some way. Probably both.
Sometimes, when Ellen scares her celebrity guests we get scared. And then we laugh.
5 Times Ellen Scared Someone and Also Scared Us:
1. Taylor Swift
This has to be one of Ellen’s best scares of all-time, mainly because she was the one who did the scaring. It’s still hard to believe Taylor didn’t break her neck wearing those heels on that bathroom tile. The hug at the end is perfect.
2. Jimmy Fallon
Sweet Jimmy was just filming a promo and this giant peacock from NBC sent him flying into the audience.
3. Carrie Underwood
Carrie was just answering questions about her husband when this really odd cowboy came out and terrified her. She knew it was coming and still screamed, “come on!”
To be fair– that cowboy is terrifying.
4. Richard Simmons
Richard was so scared he couldn’t even greet Ellen afterwards. It took him an entire 30 seconds to recover and say hello.
5. Eric Stonestreet
Earlier in his interview, Eric watched his scare from the last time he was on the show and vowed that it wouldn’t happen again. When the giant dog came out and got him, he walked away and said, “I’m done!” Luckily, he wasn’t. But, it probably stopped his heart for a second.
