‘What the hell? This is not supposed to be emotional, God dang it! Not yet – it’s not even over, you know I have not been out in a long time, like two years, and I am not kidding, and the last time I was here hosting a show was here when you were at the DMV,’ says the Cake actress.

Ellen, in a green suit with a floral shirt, said thanks to Jennifer as she says she knows she does not go out a lot and is being careful during COVID-19.

Jen then got up and says, ‘Wait a minute,’ and she looks at the floor where there is an old door mat.

Aniston says she has done the show 19 times and adds the mat has only been there one time.

‘What department distressed it to look like this?’ she asks. Ellen says the other one is gone.

Season 19 of The Ellen DeGeneres Show begins on Monday September 13. 

Throughout the final season, the 63-year-old presenter will also take a look back at some of her most memorable star guests, check in on those who featured in human interest stories over the years, and reminisce about her legendary show surprises.

Ellen announced in May she would bring the show to an end in 2022.

In a pre-recorded video from her show, shared on her Twitter account, she told her virtual audience: ‘I am announcing that next season, season 19, is going to be my last season.

‘So, the past 18 years, you have to know have changed my life,’ said the star.

Ellen also shared that she is ‘forever grateful to all of you for watching, for laughing and dancing, sometimes crying.’

And she added, ‘This show has been the greatest experience of my life, and I owe it all to you. So, thank you.’

Ellen – who is married to Portia de Rossi – pondered the decision ‘for a while’, but also admitted that when she penned a three-season extension two years ago she knew then the 19th series would be her last.

She added: ‘I’ve thought a lot about this decision, I sat with it for a while. I meditated on it, I talked to Portia, I talked to myself.

‘Two years ago, I signed a deal for three more years, and I always knew in my heart that season 19 would be my last.

‘Nineteen is a great number. The 19th amendment gave women the right to vote, and I believe women should be allowed to vote.

‘You may wonder why I’ve decided to end after 19 seasons and the truth is I always trust my instincts. My instinct told me it’s time. I truly have felt like next season was the right time to end this amazing chapter.

‘I promise you that we are going to have a fantastic final season. It will be a season where I truly get to say, thank you. Every day will be a celebration.’

In September, Ellen addressed the ‘toxic’ work environment allegations during the season 18 premiere.

She told viewers: ‘All right, let’s get to it. As you may have heard, this summer there were allegations of a toxic work environment at our show. And then there was an investigation.

‘I learned that things happened here that never should have happened. I take that very seriously, and I want to say I am so sorry to the people who were affected.

‘I know that I am in a position of privilege and power and I realize that with that comes responsibility, and I take responsibility at what happens at my show.

‘This is The Ellen DeGeneres Show. I am Ellen DeGeneres. We have had a lot of conversations over the last few weeks about the show, our workplace and what we want for the future. We have made the necessary changes and today, we are starting a new chapter.’
