Washington , Apr 22 (ANI): Oprahs Big Give got bigger with Jennifer Aniston dishing out a whopping 30,000 dollars gifts to each contestant on the shows season finale on April 20.
The actress first announced cash gifts of 10,000 dollars to each contestant while thanking them for their work.
But, if this was not surprising enough, the Friends star left the contestants gob-smacked when she tripled the amount to 30,000 dollars.
“That just felt too good. I personally would like to triple it. So we’re going to go 30,000 dollars. Guys, thank you for doing this and inspiring everybody,” Usmagazine.com quoted her, as declaring to contestants.
The laurels for the day went to winner Stephen Paletta, who took home the 1 million dollars prize for completing a giveaway challenge with zero funds. He will keep half the money and donate the rest to charity.
Last month, on The Oprah Winfrey, Drew Barrymore doled out 1 million dollars to the United Nations World Food Programme to help feed children in Africa , and Simon Cowell gave 162,000 dollars mortgage to a family with a three-year-old daughter with cancer. (ANI)
