Unless you’ve been living in seclusion with no access to TV or the internet the past 30 years, chances are you know who Ellen is. She’s so big, we don’t even have to say her last name for you to know who we’re talking about.
Born in Louisiana, Ellen does not hide the fact she’s a big New Orleans Saints fan. Normally, this would automatically disqualify one from being inducted as a Big Cheese, but Ellen is special; Ellen can root for two NFL teams. You may have guessed this already, but Ellen’s other favorite team is the Green Bay Packers. While she hasn’t stated who she’d root for if the teams went head to head, the fact she wore what looked like a Don Hutson jersey when she visited Saints practice tells us all we need to know.
After the Packers’ Super Bowl victory, Ellen had Clay Matthews and Aaron Rodgers on as guests of her show. They all had a little fun with the fact Rodgers listed Ellen as his number one celebrity crush.
Congratulations, Ellen; you’re this week’s Big Cheese! We’ll look forward to seeing you in the stands at Lambeau if the Packers face the Saints in the playoffs!
