What would you do if you were handed a bundle of cash—and told you have to give it all away?

Challengers on Oprah’s Big Give, a new series by Harpo Productions that will  begin airing on ABC Sunday, March 2nd, have to face that very difficult question.

10 People from across the country are given a wad of cash and challenged to help total strangers so that they can feel the high of giving.  Over eight weeks, we follow their every move, and in the end, the biggest giver wins! $1 million to the one who gives the best. Givers are judged on creativity, leadership and accomplishments. And someone will be sent home! “Give big – or go home!” say’s O.

Oprah will have designer pal Nate Berkus as co-host but also Jennifer Aniston, John Travolta, Jada Pinkett Smith, Donald Trump, and a few of Oprah’s other pals will be around to lend a hand.

The “pay-it-forward” themed  show will be a cross between The Amazing Race and Extreme Home Makeover. And get out a box of tissue! It’s said to be an emotional roller coaster ride!

“It’s always fun  for me to be able to give and watch people’s reactions. I love a great surprise. And I wanted other people to have that feeling of what it feels like to give back,” explained the TV queen.

“What I know for sure is that most American’s really are giving. We’re the most loving, caring people, concious of others and how they feel. I know that’s how people really feel. We wanted to show how one person can make a difference…and do it in an entertaining, fun way that people will watch.”  said  Oprah.
