Oprah Winfrey today aired her ultimate "Favorite Things" show in which audience members were showered with lavish gifts amid tumult and shrieks of happiness.

In the audience was Randi Romo, a familiar figure on this blog for her work in human rights causes, particularly in the interest of the LGBTQ community. The show won't be seen locally until 4 p.m. on Channel 7, but airings have begun around the country and fans are avidly watching and reporting on Twitter and others. According to this blog, loot included a 52-inch 3D Sony TV, a diamond watch, a seven-day Royal Caribbean cruise, a flight on United Airlines, a Blu Ray player, five years of Netflix, a Container Store "dream closet," Nike Free-Run shoes, a panini maker, a tote bag and Jay-Z's new book.

Romo was in the audience because a former Little Rock resident, Guy Zakrzewski (pictured with Romo), nominated her as a "hero" for her work on behalf of bullied kids. Romo has written the full back story here.

What Romo didn't know when she was invited to the show as a nominated hero was that the taping last Tuesday was actually for the "Favorite Things" show.
