oprah gives away beetles on her ultimate favorite things show

Absolutely everybody went nuts for Oprah's final Ultimate Favorite Things show! We weren't there and even we went wild over it!

During the show's finale, Oprah had Santa drive her onto the set in a red Volkswagen Beetle. Here's what she said to the audience:

"It's not what you think. I wanted to give everyone one of these, but VW said 'Sorry, Oprah. We can't give you this beetle.'"

But then she said….

[VW agreed to give everyone a] "brand new, totally redesigned 2012 Beetle. THE BEETLES ARE COMING!!!"

The extremely lucky audience members at the show will all receive a VW 2012 Beetle when they are unveiled in May 2011.

Here's what Oprah had to say about the new Beetle:

"It's so damn sexy. Even the men are going to want to drive this car."

Hell yes they will, Oprah! You should also give away Beetles to everyone out there who WRITES about your show. LOLs.

Other fab prizes given during the show include iPads, Coach Purses, Garrett's Popcorn, jewelery boxes with diamond earrings, and more!

Here's more from Oprah on her final Favorite Things Show:

"This is the last one I will ever do. And I know this is a Saturday Night Live Parody here."

Totally could be an SNL parody! All you need to do is start giving away neighborhoods and private islands and neighborhoods on private islands!

What do U think of these prizes? Did any of U out there win the VW 2012 Beetle?

    beetles were and always have been ugly - i don't give a shit who makes them. and any man that drives one is gay.

    SHE didn't give away cars!!! The CAR MANUFACTURERS gave away those cars!!! As did ALL those OTHER corp. sponsors that want their product mentioned by Oprah. Why doesn't she put all this work towards building New Orleans from Katrina? Or is she just too busy buying another $60million house, or building ONE school in Africa stocked with staff that molests the kids, to buy off her conscience. Thanks for all the gifts Oprah, take one diet out of petty cash you greedy behemoth! Go eat another box of doughnuts.

    Honestly, if anyone has a negative comment about Oprah giving away all this stuff, then they're just jealous. Hell I wish I was there and I know a lot if you wish you were getting some of this stuff too.

    Kinda sickening. I quit watching Oprah a couple of years ago for 2 reasons - first, I thought it was geared to the rich, and second, I got tired of watching her interview people and not letting them get a word in and making it all about her. And watching her give all that stuff to people who don't really need it - gag me.

    Re: Jazzyjae – Sure there is a big of jealously - who doesn't want free stuff? But don't you find it a bit sickening? This is what Christmas has become - a competition to see who can get the most stuff.

    Re: Jazzyjae – Absolutely Jazzyjae! She nor the companies have to do any of this, it is a gift. So easy for people to find a negative!

    I drive a VW Golf, have owned many VWs…would LOVE a new Beetle, not in my budget right now to get a new car, wish I was in Oprah's audience that day!

    Re: The Dude! – Your so negative….just because your life sucks doesn't mean it sucks for everyone else. GET A LIFE LOSER

    The make up of the audience for this show were people who dedicate their time to give back to others! I think it was wonderful of Oprah to give back to them. Who cares if the gifts come from the sponsors or not, it's a win win for all involved! You people find a negative in everything! Gees!

    That episode made me want to cry, because I wasn't there. Everytime she reveal something new I wanted to kick someone. Oprah needs to throw some money my way. Maybe pay for some of my college loans.

    Re: rosebud99
    I noticed that Oprah talks all the time too but I don't care.

    i was at this show. the audience was full of teachers, single mothers, etc. i think it was amazing what she did. and the companies may have given the things away, but Oprah is paying all of our taxes. on everything. it was a fun and exciting show. i was honored to be a part and so happy to get a car. i think she's great.

    Re: Samson5458 – Says the person 'with a life' that takes the time to post on here to others about their life? I retired YOUNG boy. I have a life. Oprah gives gifts to buy her popularity because despite her wealth is a very insecure person (check out her waistline - genetics my ass!). If she wanted to help, why not donate a few million to Brad Pitt's organization 'Make it Right!' in Louisiana that's ACTUALLY building homes for Americans that lost theirs from Katrina. But yeah, you have it right dipshit. More cars (I have some in a 6-car garage I spent more on renovating than you make in 2 years!), watches (Rolex GMT Master here dipshit!), soaps and lotions for fat Americans when people in the US are homeless. Yeah, what you call 'negative', I call 'realistic' you rose-colored glass wearing, idealist, working-class joke!

    The materialism that defines the citizens of this country is what's so negative about this situation. I have nothing to be jealous of - I have a 3 bedroom house, a working vehicle, clothing on my back and food in my mouth. If this cows sense of entitlement, pretension and "almightyness" is what money buys ya, I don't want it.

    Re: FabLyfe03 – Maybe you should have gotten a degree that'll get you a job to pay off those loans. How's that for a plan?



  15. 15

    Re: metnwt – If the audience was selected that way (full of people that give back)… that's GREAT! If it was full of the usual lazy people looking for a free ride… those losers suck.

    I think I'm going to give Oprah a diet for Xmas! God Bless us… everyone.

    Most single mothers are single because they're nagging, gold-diggers that let their body go to pot and/or low paid idealistic teachers … or just whores.

    That's a fact. Google it.



  17. 17

    (you know I'm just joking about the 'idealistic teachers' right?). I think teachers should get paid a HELL of a lot more than they do. But that's just the imbalance of people's priorities out there. They'll pay anything for their 55" flat screen TV, but God forbid they'd have to pay $50. more a year in taxes to pay teachers better.

    PS: Samson5458 - when you rent is due on your trailer, blow me and I'll pay you $5. ($4. more than your usual rate).

    Re: The Dude! – of all the things you said on this post, most of which I chuckled at, I fully agree with you about teachers! I only volunteer in my children's classrooms, and for a few hours at a time, and I leave exhausted…feeling great, but exhausted. It is hands down THE most important job for a sustainable future, but yet we crap on teachers w/pathetic salaries and parents who just dump their kids on the school system to raise them.

    Re: rosebud99 – you might say this is what christmas has all become about, but those people were deserving of those gifts b/c they are what she considers "heroes". It was just any viewer that was allowed on this episode. They are people who had someone write in about them because somewhere along the life they have helped a person. In other words, they deserve it.

    Re: The Dude! – You would have a much better watch (by a few 0s) to brag about if you had a six-car garage that's only capable of housing a portion of your collection. By the way, the guy with whom you're verbally sparring on PerezHilton.com probably makes about $30,000 annually if we're being really generous with our estimations. What's to gain from unleashing on that guy? That was a rhetorical question. It's all about perspective.

    Pull your heads out of your asses, people–Oprah doesn't buy the audience all this shit and give it out of the kindness of her own heart. It's FREE ADVERTISING, the entire show is just about advertising products. It's no different than the fucking Price is Right.



  22. 22

    Won't all of those recipients be taxed on the MSRP's of all those freebies?



  23. 23

    The Angel Network has built whole neighborhoods in New Orleans, FYI. *shrug*

    These companies give their products to Oprah in return to have great revenues, it works! Every product that is on this Oprah Favorite Things list goes wild in sells.Which marketing person wouldn't give something to Oprah just before the biggest day in retail? I love the Oprah show and will continues to watch it until she goes off air.
