Good News: Gold Medalist Gets Surprise Visit


Among the things a shiny new Olympic gold medal will get you, as snowboarder Jamie Anderson will attest, is an upgraded seat on airplane home. On her way back from the Sochi Games, Jamie got bumped up to first class. Score!  She recounted the story on Tuesday’s episode of “Ellen.” And it just so happened that Ellen had another surprise for Jamie — her family.  Jamie, who won gold in the women’s slopestyle, went right from Sochi to “Ellen.” There was no time to make a stop at her South Lake Tahoe home. But at the end of her interview with Ellen, her family was revealed to be waiting for her behind two big doors on the set.  Watch this wonderful video here.
