Los Angeles, CA (WNEP) – The big day finally arrived: “The Apparently Kid” also known as Noah Ritter appeared on “The Ellen Show.”

“Please welcome 5-year-old Noah Ritter,” Ellen DeGeneres announced as the audience cheered.

From the second Noah sat down on The Ellen Show, he captured the crowd.

“My first time on a talk show!”

The 5-year-old from Pottstown, Pennsylvania spent the summer with his grandfather, someone Noah calls his best buddy.

Noah’s rise to fame came after he stole the show from Newswatch 16’s Sofia Ojeda during an interview at the Wayne County Fair.

The interview went viral and Noah soon became known to the world as The Apparently Kid.

His YouTube clip got more than 14 million views and the attention of Ellen DeGeneres.

“The word apparently is your favorite word, isn’t it?” Ellen asked.

“Yeah, but I got over it now. I get it over it now and then,” Noah replied.

“What’s your new favorite word?”

“Seriously!” said Noah.

Noah also told Ellen about his new life as kindergartner and how he feels about spending so much time in class.

“It’s like I was in prison for 10 days,” said Noah as Ellen laughed.

Toward the end of the eight-minute segment Ellen surprised Noah with a VIP trip to a show to see his favorite creatures: dinosaurs.
