Ellen DeGeneres Says She ‘Had No Idea’ Another Comic Originated ‘Tinder Live’ Game

Lane Moore says she created ”Tinder Live“ five years ago ahead of ”Ellen“ segment

Ellen DeGeneres has responded to a comedian who said that she originally created a “new game” that DeGeneres played on her show Monday.

DeGeneres trotted out a game with guest Sarah Silverman that she dubbed “Tinder Live,” in which DeGeneres played matchmaker with Silverman and did some live swiping of some celebrity hotties.

Comedian Lane Moore, who has hosted her own show called “Tinder Live” for nearly five years, told DeGeneres on Twitter that it has a Wikipedia page and has been featured in The New York Times.

“I had no idea, but you’re clearly brilliant. Now I do have an idea, and I’ll go and watch,” DeGeneres tweeted in response to Moore.

Sarah Silverman also responded, acknowledging how new she is to online dating.

“Glad it all worked out,” Silverman tweeted. “Oy. I know nothing of Tinder!”

On Monday’s segment, DeGeneres flashed photos of famous actors and pop stars as Silverman decided who she might want to go on a date with. She settled on a choice between Drake and John Cena.

In Moore’s “Tinder Live,” she provides real-time dating advice as she swipes through matches, sends messages and sometimes takes phone calls.

DeGeneres has previously done similar online dating app segments on her show, including one titled “Who’d You Rather?” with guests including Demi Lovato, Charlie Puth and Rihanna.

Moore also retweeted several other fans of her show who tweeted at DeGeneres in hopes that DeGeneres would respond and invite Moore onto her show. Find more info about Moore’s “Tinder Live” including tour dates here, and see some of the reactions below:
