STRATFORD, Conn. — Nate Seltzer, a 5-year-old whiz kid from Stratford, is becoming a regular of sorts on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”

The pint-sized geography expert will appear on the popular talk show again on Wednesday, Nov. 8.

First, Nate shows off the “Ellen” set he built using LEGOs. And of course, he then blows Ellen away with his talent for geography by identifying city grids from all over the world. (And maybe he had a bit of help with one!)

Ellen also surprises Nate with a life-size LEGO version of himself.

If you can't get to a TV, watch Nate's appearance above.

Nate first turned up in March and made fans due to his amazing geography skills — and for his snarky joke about President Donald Trump.

To cheers from the crowd, Nate revealed his favorite state ("Missouri — because it starts with M"), correctly identified a series of countries and flags from flash cards, and explained his hand-drawn map of the world and why he placed the president inside a certain country.

"It's really funny," Nate whispers to Ellen before revealing, "It's Russia."

Ellen DeGeneres welcomed Nate back in May, as he reveals that he wants to be a grocery store manager when he grows up because he "loves food." ( Click here to watch.)

He also shows off more of his U.S. geography knowledge by identifying states and their capitals — including Hartford.
