Your OWN Show: Oprah’s Search For the Next TV Star will be decided on tonight’s season finale! Airing on the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN), one lucky winner will receive their very own show, a $100,000 prize from Kohl’s and a brand new car! The two finalists are Kristina Kuzmic-Crocco and Zach Anner. Kristina, a working mom from California would like to have her own cooking show. Zach, an amateur film maker from Texas would like to have an inspirational travel show. After weeks of tough competition and challenging tasks, Oprah will crown the winner.
In the beginning of the season virtual unknowns were taken from their everyday lives and introduced to America. They were given a chance of a lifetime–a shot at getting their very own TV show. Each week, the contestants were given carefully selected challenges and met special guest mentors who shared advice and tips pertaining to the task.
The ten contestants were split into two teams: Team Vision made up of Elizabeth, Terey, Aunt Flora, Leigh and Kristina and then Team Focus with Alicia, Tony, Ryan, Eric and Zach. Some of the challenges included producing a fashion segment, retail commercial, cooking segment, finance segment, comedy segment and a makeover segment. For all of the tasks, the contestants each had to take on the role of host and executive producer at some point during the season.
Now it’s down to only two finalists: Zach and Kristina. Be sure to tune in tonight to OWN at 9pm|8c to see what happens!
