Greenville Man Wins Ellen Show Costume Contest

Tad Logullo as the Heath Ledger version of The Joker

More than 1,000 University of Illinois and Parkland College students will make a cameo appearance on the “Ellen” show today…including one from Greenville.

19 year old Tad Logullo, son of Jon and Stephanie Logullo, of Greenville, is a Mechanical Engineering major at the U of I.  He told us he participated in – and won – a costume contest Ellen held on campus Monday.

“I was sitting in class and everyone was mentioning how Ellen might be on campus,” said Tad.  “They also mentioned there may be a movie costume contest.  I realized I still had my Halloween costume in the closet – The Joker – so I ran home and put it on and showed up.  Ellen DeGeneres was on a live chat and picked out who had the best costume.  I won, it was kind of awesome.”

You can see Tad on the Ellen show this afternoon.  He’ll be flown out to Los Angeles this weekend to be in the audience of her post-Oscar special, which will air Monday afternoon.
