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.Go here to read about the identity of the contestants.
