Precocious Stratford boy on 'Ellen' again
In March, 2017, Ellen Degeneres had a 5-year-old geography whiz on her show. Nate Seltzer of Stratford, Conn. wowed viewers by proving he memorized the whole globe.
Seltzer has been invited back a number of time since then and will appear on the show Nov. 1 (watch clip above) to show off his new talent–license plates.
Seltzer started off the show by bringing Degeneres a jar of money ($258.63) from his "lemoNate" stand, which he wanted to donate to Degeneres's wildlife fund raising money for gorillas in Rwanda.
"You're sweet to do that," Degeneres said to Seltzer in a clip. "You know the gorillas are losing their habitat, so we need the money."
"Yes. That's why I brought it," Seltzer replied.
Seltzer then went on to show off his new skill of identifying which license plate designs correspond to which states. Seltzer was shown a screen with a map of the U.S. and an image of a license plate with the state name missing. He was able to correctly point to the state it belonged to.
"Because I like cars," was Seltzers response to why he started learning this trick.
At the end, Degeneres surprised Seltzer with a brand new lemoNate stand so he could raise more money for the gorillas.
The Internet first took notice of Seltzer on his first show appearance when he made a joke abut Donald Trump. After that, Seltzer got attention from sites like Buzzfeed and Mashable for his political humor.
