Have you ever watched an episode of "Oprah's Favorite Things" and wished you could get one of the snazzy products she was giving away? UGGS? Done. A 3D HDTV? Of course. A Coach bag? Why not? Fancy cupcakes? Here, take a dozen. A bar of soap? Sure, whatever. Who cares? It's all freeeeeeeeee!
The last time we saw Oprah Winfrey give away fabulous prizes was in 2010, but she's back, and bigger than ever (the episode, not Opes). The 2012 version of "Oprah's Favorite Things" will be a two-hour special event, because if there's one thing O knows, it's what sells. And while 60 minutes of screaming, crying people getting awesome stuff for free is great, 120 minutes will undoubtedly be a ratings bonanza. The best part? For the first time ever, Winfrey's Canadian fans have a chance to win select items from the episode. Giddy. Up.
Viewers will also get a behind-the-scenes look at how it all comes together. Oprah will get insight from her bestie (no, not Jen Aniston) and O Magazine editor-at-large Gayle King, designers Michael Kors and Tory Burch, and celebrity chef Curtis Stone on what they believe are the season's hottest, newest and yummiest must-haves (iPad mini, anyone?).
To try and snag some of the items featured, U.S. and Canadian viewers will have to keep an eye on the screen and watch for key words during the premiere (and only the premiere). Then we'll (that's right, I want in on this action!) have to text the correct word and, well, fingers crossed.
As usual, the studio audience will be comprised of a group of special individuals, and this year is no different. Oprah will be giving the prizes to military spouses, so I'm hoping that on top of all the fun stuff being given away, we get some surprise reunions. Bring on the ugly Oprah cry!
"Oprah's Favorite Things: 2012" airs Sunday, Nov. 18 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network (Canada).
