America fell in love with adorable “Apparently Kid” Noah Ritter the moment he was given the spotlight by Newswatch 16’s Sofia Ojeda. After describing his experience at the Wayne County Fair, Ritter became a viral sensation and rose to fame in no time. Since then, he has appeared on various television shows such as Ellen, the Today show, Good Morning America, and Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Recently, Ellen DeGeneres welcomed Ritter to her show again as she set the Apparently Kid against Jurassic Park actor Chris Pratt.
Coming out of the backstage, Ritter was received with a lot of love from the audience. Waving his hands and flexing his arms to show that he’s ready to take on the much older actor, the little “dinosaur expert,” as DeGeneres would put it, ignited some noise from the crowd.
When Pratt held out his hand for a shake, his young opponent ignored it. Raising his hands, Ritter excitedly screamed, “Let’s go!” Pratt and DeGeneres just laughed it off. The Apparently Kid was too cute even when he’s all competitive.
DeGeneres then asked the Apparently Kid, “Do you know who that is?” She pointed to Pratt. With a huge smile on his face, Ritter quickly responded, “Chris Pratt!”
When asked if he was a big fan of the Jurassic Park series, Pratt’s young opponent asserted, “I cannot wait to see the movie!” DeGeneres replied, “Great.” But Ritter cannot help to express how stoked he is for Pratt’s film. Again, he announced, “I cannot wait to see Jurassic World!”
The dinosaur trivia, which was hosted by DeGeneres’ personal assistant Robby, involved questions such as “A person who studies dinosaurs is known as what?” and “What’s the difference between an herbivore and a carnivore?” It also included more complex questions like “Which is bigger? A T-Rex or a Brachiosaurus?”
The competition between Ritter and Pratt ignited tons of laughter from the audience as the Apparently Kid constantly teased the older actor with some of his dancing and cute gestures. At one point during the game, the little guy picked on Pratt shouting, “In your face!”
After answering six questions correctly, the Apparently Kid was declared as the trivia’s winner and received a delightful prize from Pratt. At the end of the game, the actor gave Ritter a huge pack of toys, some of which are not yet released in the market. Pratt’s young opponent could not contain his joy. He ran around the stage, holding up his hands and smiling.
During the show, Pratt also talked to DeGeneres about his family vacation in Maui.
