Australia Goes ‘O’verboard For Oprah!

Oprah’s Outback adventure is already estimated to be costing more than $3 million in expenses for her 300 audience members as well as dozens of production crew and while her presence is bound to boost tourism in Australia, they’ll also have to beef up security for her.

The Harbour Bridge is one of Sydney’s most famous landmarks and it has been reported that engineers and designers have been working on plans to erect the big “O” for nearly a month.

The same publication is also reporting that the Intercontinental Hotel will serve as headquarters for Harpo Productions and that several staff members have already checked in.

As part of her 25th and final season, Oprah will be recording the two shows in Australia on December 14.
