5.) Meeting The First-Ever Nigerian Bobsleigh Team
In light of the upcoming Winter Olympics, Ellen invited the first-ever Nigerian bobsleigh team to the show. Seun Adigun, Ngozi Onwumere and Akuoma Omeoga, who are Nigerian-American, qualified as the first African team to compete in bobsleigh competition. The energetic trio danced onto the stage with Ellen as they celebrated their historic qualification. Ellen then gifted the trio with a parting gift of a flag with her face on it, for the team members to wave when they cross the finish line at the Winter Games.
