Ellen’s Writer Plays ‘Hubba Hubba Harvard Quiz Quiz’


Right now I want to talk about
the greatest gift of all, the gift of knowledge. There’s a trivia game we like to
play called Hubba, Hubba, Quiz, Quiz where we have hunks– [OOHING] We have hunks compete to
see who’s the smartest. And today, I’d like
to try something new. I have a writer named
Jason, who went to Harvard. And I know this
because he mentions it every chance he gets. Hey, Jason, come on out here. [APPLAUSE] Hi, Jason. How are you? Just great. Good. You’re wearing your
Harvard sweatshirt I see. All right, so I want to see how
well you do against the hunks today, all right? It’s time for a new game we’re
calling Hubba Hubba Harvard Quiz Quiz. [MUSIC PLAYING] All right, let’s bring
out your opponents. Matt and Chris, everybody. [CHEERING AND APPLAUSE] I see you have a
T-shirt under that. You didn’t want to wear
a T-shirt like they had? Just I would get cold
in the studio, so– OK, all right, Matt,
you’re our returning champ. You were like the Ken
Jennings of hunks. And so– and you’re
new Chris, right? I’m new, yes. Nice to meet you. Nice to meet you. All right, and of
course, there’s a fancy man who went
to Harvard there. All right, all right, we’re
going to start with you, Matt. Tinder is an app that
might be on your phone. The word app is short for what? Application. That is correct, Matt. [DING] [APPLAUSE] Chris, which two body
parts never stop growing? The nose and the ears. You are correct. [DING] Jason, every country
has a rectangular flag except for one. Which country is it? [LAUGHTER] Like Tonga, like Tonga. You’re going to say Tonga? Tonga. That just feels. I don’t know. It feels like a funny word. And I’m going to say Tonga. No, it’s Nepal. Definitely, yeah. [BUZZER] It’s a shame. All right, Matt, BYOB stands
for Bring Your Own Booze. What does BMI stand for? Body Mass Index. That is correct. [DING] [APPLAUSE] Chris, the Summer Olympics
will be in Tokyo next year. What are the colors
of the Olympic rings? Green, blue, red, black, yellow. Yes, that is correct. [APPLAUSE] Jason, which states
border Arizona? Which states border Arizona. OK, I think I can do this. All right, California,
New Mexico, and Nevada. And there’s more. And Utah. Yes, yes. [DING] [APPLAUSE] You’re on the board with one. Matt, finish the phrase. You can lead a horse to water,
but you can’t make him– Drink it. That’s right. Drink. [DING] Chris, who said one small
step for man, one giant leap for mankind. Neil Armstrong. That is correct. [DING] Jason, if all the days of
the week end in the letter y, how many months end
in the letter y. You have three seconds. Go. January, May, February, three. Three. Three is– no. January, February– May. May, July. July. Four. I was born in July, so– All right– [LAUGHTER] Matt, some people like
to say, OK, boomer. Which indigenous
group in Australia is famous for using boomerangs? The aztecs. [LAUGHTER] [BUZZER] Aborigines. If you flip a coin three
times and it lands on heads each time, what is the chance
it will land on heads again on the next toss? 50-50. That is correct. [DING] We didn’t fool you. Jason, since you
love Harvard so much, when was the University founded? 1636. That is correct. [DING] All right, for winning, you
get Jason’s Harvard sweatshirt. And for playing, you’re
getting a day’s supply of protein powder. And, Jason– [APPLAUSE] Chris, no, no,
Chris is the winner. Chris won. Jason, you’re going to
get a hug from the hunks. He loves a hug. Hug him. He loves a hug. [AWING]

  1. lol they fooled themselves. the chance to get heads 3 times in a row on a coin toss is 0.5*0.5*0.5=0.125 so it's actually 12.5%

  2. Ellen you are wrong the country that hasn’t a rectangular flag is Switzerland 🇨🇭 I don’t know Nepal but then it would be 2 countries. Informe yourself better

  3. Yuit was the first Christmas opportunity and even put it ellen I love you 💕❤️😘 is time to be fuo Christmas 🎄 day day is the Love 💕 day day

  4. As a Cantabrigian, I appreciate they used an actual picture of Harvard facing the Cambridge side FROM Boston, not the BOSTON skyline. Harvard is in Cambridge, not Boston. Two different mayors!

  5. This is so embarrassing for the writer. She asks him quite difficult questions compared to the others and it's just so lame…

  6. It would be funnier if the guys were muscle builders with really easy questions and with jason in the middle with extremely hard ones

  7. I love Ellen so much and she just said Nepal what a great way to start my day with ♥️💃 I love you all the way from Nepal ♥️♥️♥️

  8. actually there is a mistake in third question, because country that doesn't have a rectangular flag is nepal and switzerland (square)

  9. Ellen always has to embarrass people huh. Well she'll never take that great accomplishment from him. One she'll never achieve

  10. Lemme give you an information, she asked which country Don't have a rectangular flag, and Sweden and many other European countries have square flag and rectangle is different from a square!.

  11. Idk how she calls herself nice when she's feeding sexism…If she really wants equality she should do it for women too…. I'm with equality not feminism!

  12. if you had a fair coin, where the probability of it landing on heads is 1/2, and the probability of it landing on tails is 1/2, and you were to flip it 3 times, with it landing on heads all 3 times, then the probability that it lands on heads the 4th time is 1/2 * 1/2 * 1/2 * 1/2 = (1/2)^4 = 1/16. it’s not simply 1/2, as some may think! 🙂
