Two Million Dollar Giveaway: Oprah's Favorite Things 2007
By Wendy Cook
Nov 21, 2007
Oprah Winfrey is in the spirit again. The philanthropist and talk show host may have had a pretty tough year but that isn't slowing down her gift giving ways. Oprah has had her Favorite Things 2007 Show and the audience cleaned up. In all, Oprah lavished more than $7,000 worth of gifts on each of the 300 people who wrote in and got tickets to the show, believing the topic was going to be American hometowns.
Audience members broke down into tears and were visibly shaking after Winfrey, who laid on her southern drawl for the entire show, popped the surprise that she had arrived to present them with her "favorite" holiday gifts.
According to the New York Post among the $2.1 million in items were refrigerators with built-in high definition TVs, HD camcorders, watches, cosmetics, orange sorbet and, as has become her custom, UGG boots.
It's not over, her website has this: "Now you, at home, can win one of Oprah's Favorite Things from this year's show just by signing up for our monthly newsletter sent to notify you of Oprah's O List selections, and her favorite things shows! It's free to sign up!"
And, if you want to get even more entries into the Favorite Things 2007 Giveaway, just refer your friends and family to Oprah's show, and they say that they will give you an additional entry in the giveaway for each person you refer!
The giveaway runs from November 20, 2007 to December 20, 2007.
