Your OWN Show: Check Out The Talent Who Didn’t Make The Cut For This Season

January 11, 2011 08:00 AM by Veronica Dudo


Your OWN Show debuted on the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN), introducing America to ten hopeful finalists with the same dream—getting their own TV show. While only a few were selected for the competition, they were certainly not alone in sharing the same dream as more than 15,000 people auditioned and sent in online videos to get a spot on the reality contest. Check out some of the other submissions who didn’t make the cut!

Last week, viewers watched as one of the contestants, Leigh Koechner received the bad news that it was time for her departure from the series and was sent home in the first week elimination. Now, the remaining nine are definitely feeling the heat of this life-changing competition. Many people have watched Oprah over her 25 year reign as the Queen of Daytime Talk. During the premiere, Oprah honestly shared with the contestants, “It’s not as easy as it looks.”  During the season opener, Oprah also said of putting together a show, “It takes a village.”


In 1986, Oprah had her first national televised show which she explained, “Changed my life forever.” Now she’s hoping to give another deserving person their big break through her reality competition, Your OWN Show. Auditions were held across the country and online entries poured in. It was a difficult decision for OWN staff members to select the finalists as many American’s hoped it was their time for a shot at fame. Check out some of the talent who came close, but didn’t make the cut for this season’s show.
