AceShowbiz – NikkieTutorials is not done sharing her unpleasant experience as a guest on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show“. After calling out host Ellen DeGeneres for being “cold and distant” following her appearance in January, the YouTube star went on to reveal she was not even allowed to use toilet reserved for Jonas Brothers.
In a new interview with the Dutch magazine &C, the 26-year-old was asked about her appearance on the show. “I was expecting a Disney show, but got Teletubbies after dark. Every guest at Ellen’s had a private toilet, but I didn’t,” she recalled. “I was not allowed to use the nearest toilet, because it was reserved for the Jonas Brothers.”
“Why do they get a private toilet, I thought,” the beauty guru, whose real name is Nikkie de Jager, went on sharing. Nonetheless, she managed to get a kick out of the outcome from her interview as she pointed out, “But in the end my item had eight million views afterwards and theirs two million, ha!”
During the interview, Nikkie also got real about how different her expectation was from the reality. “Call me naive, but I kind of expected to be welcomed with confetti cannons: ‘Welcome to The Ellen DeGeneres Show!’ But instead I was greeted by an angry intern who was a bit overworked,” she admitted.
Despite her negative experience, the YouTuber was still “happy” she grabbed the opportunity to be on the show. Still, she felt that it has taught her one important lesson. While admitting that she still has Adele on her bucket list, she retorted, “Although after Ellen I figured, don’t meet your idols. Haha.”
This was not the first time Nikkie criticized the “Ellen” show. Back in February, she also opened up on “De Wereld Draait Door” about what exactly happened during her appearance as guest on the talk show. Asked by Matthijs van Nieuwkerk about her first interview after coming out as transgender, she compared how she was treated on Ellen’s show to the Dutch show.
“Let me say that there’s a big difference between this show and Ellen DeGeneres, and I’m saying that in favor of this show,” Nikkie honestly said, according to native Dutch speaker Sebastian Williams. Describing Ellen as someone who is “cold and distant,” Nikkie continued, “It was a huge honor to be on that stage with Ellen, but it wasn’t as nice as I thought.”
