Oprah Australia Trip – Oprah Winfrey Gifts To Audience – Oprah Winfrey has pulled out all the stops with her latest audience gift. Incredibly, she is taking the 300 members who were in her audience at the recent taping of “The Oprah Winfrey Show” on an eight-day vacation to Australia.
According to the Australian government, they are spending $3 million in order to help bring her show to the country, however they maintain that it is money well spent, as it will help promote tourism. The Tourism Minister, Martin Ferguson, said, “Oprah is a household name and her star power has the potential to lift Australia’s profile as a premier tourist destination.”
The announcement was made when Winfrey was taping the first episode of her show’s 25th season, which will also be its last. She told the audience that she might take them on a trip somewhere, throwing out New York, Philadelphia, or Los Angeles, but then said that she wanted something “bigger”.
“I started to think about where would I most want to go. Maybe I should take all of you with me to the other side of the world. We’re going to Australia!”
John Travolta, the Hollywood celebrity, will be the pilot flying them all over to the country.
