">Oprah Winfrey the all time Queen of United States television will be bringing her show lock stock and smoking barrel for a trip to Australia. Additionally Oprah will be bringing down under an audience of her loyal followers for a weeks Holiday in Australia. The news of this has set the media alight.
Just take a glimpse of celebrity cook Curtis Stone now the face of Coles Supermarkets in Australia with his $10 family meals
WHEN Curtis Stone left Australia to chase his dream of fame and fortune in the US in 2007, the celebrity chef had prepared himself to toil away for years for that all-too-elusive break.
Leaving behind a blossoming TV career on the ABC cooking series Surfing The Menu, it was a leap of faith to try to build a small place for himself in one of the world's biggest media markets.
Then, two years ago, Oprah Winfrey's Harpo Productions office called. Arriving at the mogul's Chicago studios that first time to help her in a quirky search for America's best sandwich was both surreal and a tipping point, Stone says.
"I remember arriving at her studios and when you walk down the halls there are photographs of her with world leaders, former presidents, you name it, she's met them. And I was thinking, 'What the hell am I doing here?'."
The newly appointed Tourism Minister Martin Ferguson has been able to pull off this coup and is now gloating in anticipation of the glow and flow on effect to tourism and interest in Australia. Film Star John Travolta the Mascot for Qantas and travelling Ambassador is said to be the one to fly them across in a Qantas Jet. Early plans indicate she will host a show from the Sydney Opera House (already re-named Oprah House). As well it is expected she and her entourage of loyal fans will visit famous landmarks such as one of the natural Wonders of the World the Great Barrier Reef and Ayers Rock.
