The talk show host rounded out her 60th birthday celebration on The Ellen DeGeneres Show by gifting the biggest prize she's ever given: $1 million. 

"Everybody in the audience is here for a special reason. All season long, I partnered with Cheerios to encourage people to do ‘One Million Acts of Good’ and if you’re here in my audience, you helped us reach that goal,” DeGeneres told the audience on Friday's episode. She called out several people in the crowd, like Kenya and John Hughes, who used their own money to drive a U-Haul 800 miles to deliver aid to Hurricane Harvey victims, and Lori Gaines, who donated a kidney to the mother of one of her students.

The comedian then informed the crowd that "a special surprise gift" was waiting for anyone who had a box of Cheerios under their seat -- before the entire audience discovered they had one. 

"Isn't that interesting? What a coincidence!" DeGeneres said.

"You’re all gonna share this gift,” she added. “It’s the biggest gift I have ever given anybody ever, and I hope you continue to pay it forward and share all the good. Hold on to your Cheerios because all of you are splitting $1 million.”

DeGeneres was given a present of her own on Thursday's episode of her show, when her wife, Portia de Rossi, brought her to tears with the "best" gift ever. Find out what it was in the video below.
