Oprah's Big Give

I gotta admit, I really am looking forward to see what Oprah's Big Give looks like. I usually hate reality TV, but maybe this will spark a national conversation:

Oprah's Big Give will begin with the 10 contestants -- who hail from across the country and have diverse backgrounds -- as they converge on Los Angeles for their first challenge, where Winfrey will hand them sealed envelopes with only a picture and the name of a complete stranger. Then, in only five days, each contestant must "give big" to "change this person's life" by using their creativity and resources to "make a real difference."
Do you remember when she gave everyone in her audience $1,000, but asked them to go out and and pay it forward?
The "gives" get even bigger throughout Oprah's Big Give's eight-episode run, and at its conclusion, the contestant left standing will receive the title of "The Biggest Giver" and -- unbeknownst to them -- a $1 million prize.

Oprah Winfrey is a disgusting hypocrite slob. Before her celebrity status, there was no 'good will' on her part. Like many other celebrities, her first goal was to achieve recognition for physical beauty. Then came the talk show and the BUSINESS of good will'. ITS A SHAM. As her ignorant fans fall deeper in love with her, they are more likely to buy any product or service endorsed by Oprah. They are more likely to get a 'Capital One' or 'Citi Bank' credit card. As people sign over more wealth to these respective industries, Oprah's endorsement becomes more valuble. As far as her 'charity work' goes, its just business. She rakes in a hell of a lot more than she 'gives back'. Hello? SHE IS A BILLIONAIRE. You don't get that way by being a 'humanitarian'. You get that way by being a CALCULATED PIG. Her personality is fake. The charity is false. Afterall, extreme wealth LITERALLY makes world prosperity mathematically and physically IMPOSSIBLE. The top heavy distribution of United States wealth is the single greatest factor causing economic instability. Look it up. TOP HEAVY ECONOMIES ALWAYS COLLAPSE. Its just a matter of time. Millions more will go cold and hungry. Like I said. If this pig were a TRUE humanitarian, she wouldn't DELIBERATELY concentrate the world's wealth and resources. She wouldn't DELIBERATELY expand the gap between the rich and poor. She wouldn't DELIBERATELY squander limited resources and accelerate global warming in the process. Oprah Winfrey is no 'humanitarian'. She is another false hero. IT MAKES HER RICHER. GOOD WILL HAS BECOME BIG BUSINESS.

This is a great concept. We'll see if it works. I know Brandi. I was a pageant mom the 2nd time she entered and won Miss Sierra Vista. She borrowed a pair of dance panties from me. She was twirling during a dance practice and we saw a lot more of her than we wanted. Except for the guys, they loved it. Pageants are very competitive, cutthroat. She can definitely hold her own in that category. She should do well. I wish her the best. I wonder if she'll ever return those dance panties.
