Oprah surprises audience with Australia trip giveaway
To kick off her final season on network TV, Oprah Winfrey on Monday aimed to top, well, Oprah Winfrey in the over-the-top department, surprising members of her audience with a gift to rival her car giveaway six years ago: eight days and seven nights in Sydney, Australia.
The audience included what the show called some of its most loyal viewers. The trip, planned for December, will include the taping of two shows overseas, a first for "The Oprah Winfrey Show," which for 25 years has kept it domestic.
