My hometown on the ELLEN SHOW!!!

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
AHHHHHHHH!!

I just talked to my mom - her boss is going to be on the Ellen Degeneres show on MONDAY!

Our hometown is only a town of about 1,000 people - our local grocery store shut down, and the kid in my brothers class opened it up, he's only 17! My mom is the manager - they called him the other day and are flying him out to be on her show on Monday! How awesome is that? Everyone tune in!

Also... they have a chance to be on CBS News! So if you go to this link - vote for us! Its Option A

I'm so excited!

That's cool, Kenz! I won't watch cause I dislike Ellen quite a lot, but good luck and I'll vote on the contest.

Thanks guys
I just hope he acknowledges everyone that helped him, because I know that the whole town stepped up and stocked shelves and have helped run that place! I know I spent many many days/nights up there helping before they opened! My mom has poured her heart and soul into that place - I really hope he mentions her, she deserves it. He really doesn't deserve ALL the credit, thats for sure!

I just voted on the CBS web site. How cool is that that he took over the grocery store and he will be on Ellen.

I voted for your Town's story Mackenzie, I'm sure he will mention the help he had (esp your Mom). He does have to go back home after all!

I love watching Ellen, but unfortunately, I have to work on Monday so I won't be able to watch that show. Hopefully they will also have him on the CBS news.

LOL!!!! I just can't imagine how a high school kid could manage to BUY a grocery store, and I'm sure his story is really interesting!

My brother was 16 when he bought his first house. My parents co-signed for him. I imagine someone must have co-signed for this young man too.

Did I miss him? I tuned in 1/2 hour into the show and didn't see him. Was he on during the first 1/2 hour segment or did I have the day wrong? The show is on again this afternoon. If he's on I'll tune in, but if he isn't, I don't want to waste my time watching it if he isn't.

That is so cool Kenz! I didn't get to see it, but I sure do hope he mentioned you mom!

I'm gonna have to call my mom and see if they switched his times? I know he's flying out there today - maybe since they are taping it - it'll be on later this week??

I know tongiht they find out if they'll be on CBS!

I got up, looked at the TV guide, & realized Ellen was on at 9 am. I got up at 11 am. Let us know if we missed it or if its on later this week!

Wanna hear something funny?? Years ago when Jerry Springer was actually *decent*,lol, my mom and dad were on there!! It was a show about teen pregnancy(which was about me) and they were there.......my mom absolutely HATED the way she looked on there I love teasing her about it though....hehe..

Ahhh! He's flying out today, not on the show today.

These shows are taped live in front of a studio audience, not broadcasted live at the time of airing.

Chances are the show won't be on for a week or two.

WE WON!

Our little story will be aired on CBS Friday night at 5:30 PM!
My mom said 2 reporters from NYC came in today and were there all day touring our little town and doing an interview w/ my mom and the owner!
I'm so excited I can't wait to see it!

And the Ellen Show - we thought he was going to be on today - but things got messed up and now we aren't sure about that, but I'll be sure to let you all know!

Thanks to all of you that voted for our little town!!
