UP program director featured on The Ellen Show
Weekend and Late Night Program Director Tyler Zimmerman, a new celebrity among us, was featured on The Ellen Show Tuesday. Zimmerman and his girlfriend competed in a contest to sit in the "Ellen Skybox" in DeGeneres' studio during one of the live shows. All contestants had to do was submit a funny video stating why they would like to have a seat in the skybox.
Zimmerman's video was featured on The Ellen Show this week, and the show's executive producer contacted Zimmerman and his girlfriend for a Skype interview off-the-air Friday. Apparently, the couple are still in the running to win a spot in the Ellen Skybox.
Zimmerman said that DeGeneres sent him a mini-iPad just for having his video featured.
Here's the video of Zimmerman's appearance on Tuesday's show:
