WATCH: Ellen Surprises Gay Ex-Boy Scout With $20,000 Check For College

Ryan Andresen’s ordeal with the Boy Scouts of America led him all the way to the stage of The Ellen Degeneres Show where the hostess with the mostest surprised him with a check for $20,000 to help pay for college. To date, nearly 400,000 people have signed the online petition started by his mother, Karen, and 170 Eagle Scouts have pledged to send him their pin, 50 out of his own troop. With the support of his awesome mom, hundreds of thousands of people and the queen of daytime TV, who the hell needs some shitty badge from an even shittier organization?
