During her visit on Ellen, the host asked Wilson about some of her Instagram posts, including one of her flyboarding while on vacation.

Well it all started over the summer because I was homeless and so I decided to go to Europe on vacation. This is actually in Ibiza and it's called flyboarding," she explained of the photo of herself propelled into the air. "And apparently you can die because it's pretty dangerous. That's why I was wearing a helmet. Your jet propelled into the air by water jets."

Although dangerous a sport, the company didn't seem to be too concerned with Wilson's safety.

"I think it was Spain and they're like, 'Whatever, do you want a drink?' and I was like, 'Sure and I'll go ahead and do this,'" she joked. "I didn't actually know I was being photographed at the time because I thought, 'I'm in a strange country on holidays and now I've got the new nickname White Legs Wilson.' I don't like that nickname."
