When billionaire businessman Bill Gates appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in February 2018, it was his first time on the long-running TV talk show. All was going well until the host invited him to play a game she called “Bill’s Grocery Bills.” And when the software tycoon was asked to guess the cost of common groceries, the audience was left stunned.

DeGeneres introduced Gates by showing footage she claimed was from rehearsal. It featured a man dancing onto the talk show’s set with Gates’ face comically superimposed on him. The host then went on to talk about the billionaire’s self-made wealth. Gates’ 21-year-old daughter was in the audience, which is the age at which the businessman made his first billion dollars.
