Los Angeles – For the first time since 2010, “Oprah’s Favorite Things” returned for a two-hour special event on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network. Like never before, the show revealed the must-haves gifts for this holiday season to a group of unsuspecting Military Spouse of the Year finalists in Washington D.C. The final surprise of the night came when Oprah Winfrey, working with Tourism Fiji, surprised the spouses with a trip of a lifetime to the beautiful Fiji Islands and Namale, Fiji’s #1 Resort & Spa. The trip includes two round trip tickets on Air Pacific, Fiji’s International airline, and a five-night stay at the luxurious all-inclusive resort Namale.
A group of students from The Conservatorium of Music in Fiji were chosen to unveil the final “Oprah’s Favorite Thing: 2012” gift to the unsuspecting group of military spouses. They entered the room singing in cultural attire and entertained the spouses, along with Oprah Winfrey, with a traditional spear dance. Amidst wild cheers and tears of joy, it was revealed that eight of the spouses had never had a honeymoon, and others had not been on a vacation with just their spouse in many years.
The television special will re-air November 23 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on OWN.
