Steve Spangler on The Ellen DeGeneres Show – May 2015

When someone is as awesome as Ellen DeGeneres, people tend to listen to what that person has to say. So when Ellen says, “Steve Spangler is the science teacher you always wanted to have in school,” we get pretty hyped-up around the office. That excitement is tenfold when it’s Steve Spangler on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

We shouldn’t be surprised, really, that Ellen thinks so highly of our in-house magician and science teaching aficionado, she’s had him on her show a whopping 18 times. Well, at the posting of this blog, he’s only been on the show 17 times, but tomorrow marks the appearance that allows Steve to vote.

Steve is used to getting students and teachers excited about science, but what about a talk show host?

Steve Spangler's 18th appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show May 27, 2015

Steve made his first appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show in September of 2007, teaching Ellen how to blow giant smoke rings, and he returned just a month later to demonstrate his exploding pumpkin trick. In one appearance, Steve wowed Ellen and her audience by letting an audience member walk on water… or at least a giant vat of cornstarch and water… and gave Ellen a little surprise when he ignited hydrogen and oxygen bubbles, right in her hands!

Steve Spangler Toilet Papers The Ellen DeGeneres' Studio

In his 15th appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show today, Steve Spangler brought a few of his science tricks to the talk show.

Steve Spangler Toilet Papers The Ellen DeGeneres Studio

Steve made yet another colossal mess on Ellen’s set as he rigged 60 leaf blowers with 60 toilet paper rolls to launch at the same time. When Ellen pushed the button, the studio was instantly swallowed up by flying toilet paper as a demonstration of Bernoulli’s Principle.

Ellen also demonstrated centripetal force by swinging a tub of water over her head.

Steve Returns to the Ellen DeGeneres Show for 14th Appearance

What does 3,000 Alka-Seltzer Tablets, 3,000 film canisters and Steve Spangler have in common with the Ellen DeGeneres Show?

Steve demonstrated the explosive power of carbon dioxide when thousands of film canisters rained down on the Ellen set Wednesday. Cameras were covered, Ellen dressed in a rain coat, safety goggles and a hard hat and even Tony had an umbrella for protection. To say Steve blew the roof off of the Ellen Show is saying Mentos and Diet Coke make a small mess.

Steve's 13th Appearance on the Ellen Show – In Case You Missed It

On February, 29, 2012, Leap Day, Steve Spangler made his 13th appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show. As always, he brought some of his favorite, explosive and nail biting experiments. Ellen, who never wants to know what Steve is doing before the show, refused to stand in front of a swinging bowling ball. (We can’t imagine why.) The swinging bowling ball demonstrated potential and kinetic energy. Lauren, Ellen’s staff writer, stood in front of the swinging ball and hoped it didn’t come back and hit her in the face. Next, Steve showed Ellen the fast and easy way to crush soda cans and a 5 gallon drum.

Steve is Headed Back to The Ellen DeGeneres Show

We are all excited to see Steve Spangler make his 13th appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week. He will be a guest on the Wednesday, February 29th Leap Day show.

Steve has been working tirelessly the past few weeks to put together some fun and explosive demonstrations to do with Ellen. We can’t tell you what he has planned, but promise it will bring out a lot of oohs and ahhs from the audience and Ellen herself. In past appearances, he has made giant Elephant’s Toothpaste, blown hundreds of ping pong balls across the stage, walked across a pool of corn starch, laid Ellen across a bed of nails and shot smoke rings across the studio. You can watch all of Steve’s appearances on SteveSpanglerScience.com.

What will he do this time? Check your local listings and tune in Wednesday to find out.
