Oprah Winfrey is on the look out for a new talk show host, and Zach Anner, who auditioned for the job is at the top of the list. Rumors has it that Oprah doesn’t want Zach to win though Anner has received more than 2.5 million votes, nearly double the number of the number 2 ranked competitor. Although, votes on myown.oprah.com don’t necessarily secure the winner his or her own show. The top five will be flown to Los Angeles, where producers will select 10 cast members for a reality competition series on Winfrey’s new network.
Worse news for Oprah as some fans have already cited her as a racist, highly favoring the black woman, and beliefs that Oprah, rigging the votes are getting popular over the internet.
Zach Anner who has cerebral palsy, describes himself as a “wheelchair-bound lady magnet” and his motor condition as “the sexiest of the palsies”. Anner, attended the University of Texas, made a hilarious and charismatic pitch for a travel show, and his video has become widely shared on the Internet, including by blues/pop musician, singer and social networker John Mayer.
