Ellen Gives New U.S. Citizen Diana Aquino Another Huge Surprise


Last month we met
an amazing woman from the Dominican Republic
who learned English by watching my show. Take a look. You learned English
from watching my show. And how did you do that? I was just flipping
through the channels. Just flipping through it. And I just came
out to your face. You were there. And I asked my mom, who’s that? And my mom is like, she’s Ellen. She’s really funny. Just watch the show. You love her. I’m like, but I don’t
understand what she’s saying. She was like, me either,
but just watch it. She’s hilarious. You said you learned
English watching me, so I have the Ellen
Degeneres Dictionary. We have Shutterfly. It’s a noun. It’s an incredible company
that loves sharing life’s joy and wants to help you
with your education by giving you a
check for $10,000. [APPLAUSE] Come one down Diana. [MUSIC – KANYE WEST,
“HOMECOMING”] Cause I’m coming home again. My home again. Do you think about
me now and then? Do you think about
me now and then? Now I’m coming home again. Maybe we can start again. [MUSIC END] Hi there. Surprise again. Yeah. You didn’t know you were
going to come visit me again. No, I was not aware of that. I’m surprised. So now that you’ve been on TV
and everyone knows who you are, are you getting a good
reaction when people meet you? Oh my god, yes. My family, my friends, they
were all so surprised of me. And they were– I don’t know. They keep asking about
you, if you smell good, if your skin is soft. Weird questions like that. But they were– Do I smell good? Yes, you smell good. I can– like, I say to them. Yes, she smells great. All right, well, they
know I smell good, and that’s the most
important thing. And so what are you going to do? We gave you $10,000. What are you doing with that? I’m paying for a
full year of school. Oh good. [APPLAUSE] I’m paying for tuition,
for books, supplies, anything for that. Only for school. Good. And then since you’ve been
here, you’re now a US citizen. I am! You took the test. [APPLAUSE] Congratulations. Thank you. I did it. Porsche became a citizen,
and she had to study. And I think she knows more
about the country than I do. Yes, I remember that. Did you study hard? Oh my god. I studied for weeks. I did flash cards. I studied with the
book that they give you with the questions. Because it’s a 100 questions. Yes. And because you don’t know
what questions they’re going to ask about, you need
to study each one of them. And then what did
you do to celebrate? We went to Olive Garden. [LAUGHTER] [APPLAUSE] They treat you like family. Oh, yeah. We go there for everything. For birthdays, graduation. That’s our place to
celebrate everything. Well, I’m so glad to know that. That’s where you like to go. We want to– you can save
your money for school. We’re going to give you a
$500 Olive Garden gift card. (YELLING) Ya! Thank you! We’re back with my friend Diana,
and I helped her learn English, so today you’re going to
help me learn Spanish. (MUSIC) So what I do first is I
drink a shot of tequila. (CHEERING) It’s your favorite. Yep. And then I try to
learn a Spanish word. And the Spanish
word today is coche. Is it coche? (ACOUSTIC GUITAR PLAYING) Coche. Coche. Coche. Coche. Is that how I say it? Yes, coche. It means– (ACOUSTIC GUITAR PLAYING) (LAUGHTER) It means car. And, like for instance,
I drank too much tequila, so you need to call me a coche. (ACOUSTIC GUITAR PLAYING) Yeah, that’s good. Perfect. Some sentences– I’m going to
keep using it in a sentence. You’ve never owned
your own coche. (ACOUSTIC GUITAR PLAYING) No. In fact, you use
public transportation to get to your two
jobs and school. Yes, right. And you’re trying to save
up money to buy a coche? (ACOUSTIC GUITAR PLAYING) (LAUGHTER) Yes. But you don’t have
to because we’re giving you a brand new coche. (ACOUSTIC GUITAR PLAYING) [SCREAMING] [APPLAUSE] Oh my gosh! Let me tell you about this care. (ACOUSTIC GUITAR
PLAYING) I said coche– I said car. The first ever Ford Eco
Sport is a fun, capable, connected SUV with
features like Apple CarPlay and a wireless hotspot. And you’re going to love it. And we will be right back.
