Who wouldn’t want their own show on Oprah’s OWN network? After much auditioning, including 9,500 submitting online audition videos and thousands more showing up for open casting calls, the contestants have been narrowed down to ten. These ten will be competing on “Your OWN Show: Oprah’s Search for the Next TV Star.”
The winner of that show will get a show on Oprah’s cable channel.
Nancy O’Dell and Carson Kressley will be the hosts of the competition, which will premiere on January 7th.
It will be interesting to see which contestant wins. Though the ideas behind their shows will count for a lot, I imagine that their personalities will play a much larger role, since whoever wins has to be someone who will draw in the audience.
There is everything from a mom of four who wants her own talk show to a motivational speaker for youth to world traveller in a wheelchair. I’m a little intrigued by the chef who lost over sixty pounds who wants to share his secrets.
Will you tune in to watch to see who is picked to win as Oprah’s next tv star?
