The 63-year-old talk show host introduced the segment by sharing different holiday traditions around the globe before sharing an American Christmas ritual she follows "Elf on the Shelf."
"A lot of people have the Elf on the Shelf thing…where the elf doll is in your house so that your kids behave because they think the elf is watching," DeGeneres continued as she gestured to a green curtain and revealed Jordan. "I hope you've been behaving because I have an Elf on the Shelf here in the studio as well, he’s right over here."
Leslie, 66, appeared before the audience in an elf costume that featured a skin tight red leotard and told the audience that he had been stuck on a shelf for four days.
"Hey, how y’all doing?" the actor giggled as he greeted the crowd. "They put me up here to test the shelf and forgot about me."
When DeGeneres asked the actor if he needed anything after being placed on the ledge for four days he responded, "How about some of the male audience members?"
