The Mandalay Bay security guard who seemingly vanished from the public eye has come out of hiding and magically appeared on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” Wednesday…

Wait a minute- wasn’t he supposed to do an interview with Sean Hannity?

What happened? Why in the hell would the CIA/FBI order him to cancel Hannity and then have him go on one of the most liberal TV shows?

Anyways, Campos described how he was wounded by the man who committed one of the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.

Fox News reported that Jesus Campos told DeGeneres in a pre-recorded interview that he had been called to the 32nd floor of the hotel on the night of Oct. 1 to investigate an open door alarm. He said he tried to access the floor from a stairwell next to gunman Stephen Paddock’s hotel room, but was blocked by a bolted emergency exit door.

“There was a metal bracket holding the door in place,” said Campos, who described it as “just out of the ordinary. It’s not normal.”

Campos said he reached the floor through another stairwell and inspected the metal bracket from the other side. As he walked back into the hallway from a room that leads to the stairwell, the door made a loud noise as it closed behind him.

“I believed that’s what caught the shooter’s attention,” Campos said. “As I was walking down, I heard rapid fire. At first I took cover. I felt a burning sensation. I went to go lift my pant leg up and I saw the blood.”

More than two weeks after the attack, Campos said his health is improving.

“I’m doing better each day, slowly but surely. Just healing mentally and physically,” he told DeGeneres.

Mandalay Bay engineer Stephen Schuck, who went to the 32nd floor to look at the door Campos had called about, told DeGeneres that he initially thought he was hearing jackhammers when the gunfire began.

“As an engineer, I thought, ‘we are not working up here late at night. We wouldn’t be doing that,'” said Schuck, who added that the wounded Campos yelled at him to take cover as bullets whizzed past his head.

“I could feel the pressure,” the engineer said.

Campos added that a woman poked her head out of her room to see what was going on, but he told her to go back inside.

Campos had canceled several scheduled TV interviews last week and his appearance Wednesday did nothing to quell rampant speculation and rumors surrounding the horrific attack.

Campos did not explain why he chose the DeGeneres show to tell his long-awaited story as opposed to all the other shows vying for the first interview, Washington Post reported.

She noted that the show had hoped to pay the two men, but said they had both refused any financial compensation. Instead, though, she said that the NFL would fly Schuck to see his favorite team, the Indianapolis Colts, and that the online photo service Shutterfly was getting Campos season tickets to see the Oakland Raiders when they relocate to Las Vegas. Shutterfly would also make a $25,000 donation to a victims’ fund in his name, DeGeneres announced.

When DeGeneres suggested that Campos’s appearance on her show would be his only public comment on the attack, Campos nodded in agreement.

“You being shot in the leg saved so many people’s lives,” DeGeneres said. “We just wanted to celebrate you.”
