I guess Ellen has to go back into the closet for her visits to paradise...else she'll be dancing the jail house rock.

The price is right

The price is right if it's free
I never thought I would see the day the bulldozing PR machine that is EK used an influential member of the LGBT community to peddle their summer bonanza. Another middle eastern paradox....
You couldn't pay me to vacation in a place that is too hot for even Satan in the summer

Seems like a good marketing tool...
I was surprised how everybody was doing just for a free ticket.
Some where even crying? like WTF?

Ellen Said in her first question that 77% of HR managers say that employees who take full full advantage of their vacations are more productive.

I doubt these questions were provided by EK 🤑

oh the irony

Did anybody catch that as well as the show being hosted by a prominent Lesbian, the "Game token" she used was a mini Tequila bottle?

I dropped my tea laughing!

Truly bizarre marketing:
Tequila spinner.
A L#sbian.
And just before the Holy Month.
What is going on??

Well you must be such a macho man. I bet the first question you ask to your fellow crew is about their sexual preferences and not their names . So pathetic !!

P.s. The so called prominent Lesbian makes in one day as much as you make in 6-8 months

P.s2. Dont know about the load factors of EK but the marketing department is doing an excellent job. Results so far are the real proof ( obviously the draw its a set up but who cares)

I think it is a great marketing idea, a new level of promoting your business through tv shows. I would like to bring back Jerry springer, I could see him do a great game show for the Abu Dhabi lot those that cannot be named, or Bruce Jenner for Qr.
No holds barred for this marketing campaign.

Anyone notice how on the final question the winning contestant grabbed the tequila bottle before the question was even read half-way?

Wort yet and funny enough is when Ellen D. asks our EK colleague, "You really are a pilot?" Priceless...
