Nancy O'Dell and Carson Kressley to host 'Your OWN Show: Oprah's Search for the Next TV Star'

Nancy O’Dell (Access Hollywood) and Carson Kressley (Queer Eye for the Straight Guy) will co-host the new OWN series Your OWN Show: Oprah’s Search For The Next TV Star that will debut in January. The new competition series is from Mark Burnett (Survivor) and will involve a nationwide search to find TV’s next big star. The winner will receive his or her own talk show that will air on OWN.

O’Dell and Kressley will work with 10 finalists, who were selected from more than 15,000 entrants. Each will participate in a veritable “host boot camp” in which they compete by booking interviews, researching story ideas, and completing screen tests. Each episode will also feature a celebrity judge. “I am so thrilled, grateful and excited to be a part of Your OWN Show,” said Kressley in a statement. “Not only do I get to inspire and be inspired by an amazing group of very talented contestants, I will also have the privilege of working with seasoned pros like Nancy O’Dell, Mark Burnett, and of course, my hero, Oprah Winfrey.  How lucky am I?!”

    Beauty and Pizazz. That’s what comes to mind as soon as I heard Oprah paired the glamorous Nancy O’Dell with the always entertaining Carson Kressley. The show sounds like a winner to me and I’ll definitely be watching.
