"One thing I am down with right now, that I think everybody is learning about, is bitcoin. Who's heard of bitcoin? Who can explain what bitcoin is? Liar. Nobody knows how it works. Nobody," host Ellen DeGeneres, 60, said incredulously during her eponymously named program.
The Ellen DeGeneres Show is enjoying its 15th year as a daily entertainment talk show. And with over 2,500 episodes under its belt, the Warner Brothers Television distributed program has racked up 59 Daytime Emmy Awards, eclipsing the mighty Oprah. Ellen kicks so much ass, Telepictures signed the show through 2020, even launching a game show component.
"Everybody is talking about bitcoin; nobody understands it," Ms. DeGeneres continued. "It's like a plot twist in a confusing movie. When you're watching a movie and your friends act like they know what's going on, and you're like, 'Yeah, I do too!' And then you're like, 'What the hell is every … I have no idea!' All I know is that bitcoin is either worth twenty thousand dollars or nothing; that's what I know. It's like a digital Antiques Roadshow. You're just standing in line, and you have no idea until you get there."
