On the first show of Ellen Degeneres’ new season, the talk star meets with the U.S. Olympic gymnastics team.
She speaks with Gabby Douglas, McKayla Maroney, and Kyla Ross about what it was like to win big at the Summer Olympics. The team swept the scoreboards, winning by the largest margin in 52 years at the Games, which helped them take home the team gold medal. Douglas also took home an all-around gold medal and Maroney got a silver in vault.
Other guests on today’s show include Patrick Dempsey, talking about the return of Grey’s Anatomy, and P!nk, who performs her new single. An inspiring story from Jordan Addison and Richard Henegar Jr. is also a highlight on the show. Addison’s car was vandalized with homophobic slurs, so Henegar Jr., a body shop manager, raised $10,000 from his community to repair the college student’s car.
