In case you didn't get the memo, Ellen DeGeneres and dudes in underwear go together like peanut butter and jelly — 'cause jam don't shake.

On Monday's episode, after sorting through a slew of sexy and sometimes strange submissions, the daytime talk show host named New Jersey hottie Mike Wolfinger as Ellen's first official underwear model and correspondent. A Purple Heart veteran "who wears his heart on his sleeve" and is "addicted to watching Ellen," Mike also won $5,000 AmEx gift card and a one-year supply of Ellen underwear. Meanwhile, you win the chance to see him half-naked again in the future.

Below, watch Ellen force the five finalists to compete in a runway walk-off and the Know or Go trivia game — which, as far as we're concerned, is how all winners should be determined.

Did Ellen choose wisely?
