WATCH Ellen Surprises Guest with Family Reunion from South Africa and Kenya

American talk show host Ellen last month surprised an audience member from Kenya with a fantastic family reunion.

Achieng Agutu has always been a big Ellen fan. She used to watch the show back home in Kenya to help learn English. Achieng has been in the United States for the past two years, living with a host family while she pursues her higher education.

And in that time – working multiple jobs – she hasn’t seen her brother Churchill, who lives in South Africa, or her parents who still live in Kenya… where they generously pay for over 10 local village kids to get an education.

Achieng dropped to her knees in delight when Ellen revealed that her beloved family members were not on the other side of the world, but on the other side of the studio door! She also gave the family a chance to win a huge cash prize. Watch below…

Achieng is in my audience, and hasn’t seen her family in 2 years, since they’re in Kenya and South Africa… which is weird, because I’m pretty sure I have some people from Kenya and South Africa backstage.
