January 26 is Ellen Degeneres’s birthday! In celebration of this Emmy-award winning gal’s special day, we’re listing five of the many awesome things she’s done for mankind!
1.) Ellen has created signature games and segments
The Ellen Degeneres Show is known for really wild stunts orchestrated by Ellen herself. Here are some of her best games and segments that had us all cracked up:
The 5 Second Rule game
Ellen’s Sweater Game
Remember the Hot Glam Photos segment where Ellen showcases glamour photos that have survived the 80s and 90s era? Such a classic:
She’s so good at this that in 2013, her “Head’s Up” game, which has crossed over to the mobile platform, became a sensation after its release.
2.) Ellen has helped A LOT of people
We can all call her Ellen The Generous. Even now, Ellen has been actively helping people out through her TV show. It’s still an ongoing project that they have already posted directions on the official The Ellen Show on how to nominate people/causes to be featured on the show.
3.) Ellen has broken the Internet
Yes, Kim K, you’ll have to move over. Ellen Degeneres broke the Internet not just once, but actually many times over! To date, her craziest online antic was when she literally caused a Twitter outage with her powerhouse selfie at the 2014 Academy Awards.

The Academy Awards has since owned up to the Twitter crash. LOL.

4.) Ellen has pranked the bleep out of almost all her celebrity guests

5.) Ellen has helped propel the careers of a number of notable Filipino personalities
