Ellis' Journey Through The Tower Edit
On Floor 6 "Botherer Blocks", Ellis received one vote as Saboteur from Ads, who voted for Ellis because "He kept arguing with everyone". Ellis voted for Ads as the Saboteur because "He wasn't moving as fast as the team". The others (Adam, Abigail, Amy, Abbie) also voted for Ads. The real Saboteur was Adam. As the team failed, the Unfortunate with the most votes (Ads) was trapped.
On Floor 5 "The Midnight Bride", Ellis received no votes as Saboteur and voted for Abbie as Saboteur because "She almost certainly knew the last one was wrong". All the girls (Abigail, Amy, Abbie) voted for Adam while Adam voted for Amy. The real Saboteur was Amy. As the team failed, the Unfortunate with the most votes (Adam) got trapped.
On Floor 4 "Split Ends", Ellis did the job of untying the bows in Split Ends' hair. He received one vote as Saboteur from Amy who voted for Ellis because "All the way through, he had a snarky face on him". Ellis voted for Amy as Saboteur because "She always chose the bad ones", while Abbie and Abigail voted for each other. The real Saboteur was Abbie. Despite the Unfortunates all receiving one vote each (they clearly don't trust each other!), Abbie was automatically trapped due to her failure to sabotage the challenge.
On Floor 3 "Scallywag Wood", Ellis received no votes as Saboteur and voted for Amy because "She always led the team to the bad animals". Abigail also voted for Amy while Amy voted for Abigail. The real Saboteur was Abigail. As the team failed, the Unfortunate with the most votes (Amy) got trapped, leaving Ellis and Abigail to go to the Fight For Freedom.
On Floor 2 "Fight For Freedom", Ellis went against Abigail and won 3 points to 2 and escaped the Tower. Ellis left the Tower by saying "The winner has got to be me!".
- He is the second Unfortunate named Ellis to participate in Trapped!. The first was Ellis from Series 3, Episode 4 (Newport) who got trapped on Floor 3.
- He is the only Unfortunate in Series 4, Episode 8 (South Shields) to not have a name beginning with the letter "A".
- Ellis wore the exact same shirt as two other Unfortunates - Said from Series 4, Episode 4 (Fulham) and Joshua from Series 4, Episode 10 (Weston-super-mare). Unlike the other two, Ellis was not trapped on Floor 6.
