Who is Oprah's final guest?

There's a big question on everyone's minds this month: Who will be Oprah's final guest? We weigh in with our guesses!

Who will be Oprah's final guest on May 25?

The end is near. No, we're not talking about the Apocalypse (though some think that's coming too) -- we're talking about the end of Oprah Winfrey's 25 years on daytime television.

It's sad, we know. Oprah has evolved over the years into a show that we just need to watch every day. She's like lattes and chocolate: A girl's just gotta have it every day. Fortunately, we do have Oprah's OWN to get our fix, but that doesn't mean we're not grieving the loss of such an iconic show.

May 25 is when Oprah's final episode will air -- and many are trying to figure out just who will be Oprah's final guest. There have been a ton of names tossed around, so let's examine the possibilities.

Stedman Graham

Entertainment Weekly is predicting that Oprah might bring on her longtime love to talk about his life with the media mogul. We'd love to see this, but we're not too sure he wants the publicity. Plus, Oprah isn't leaving the media eye, so we're not sure why she would want to spill the details on her love life now.

Gabrielle Giffords

Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords managed to survive -- and thrive -- after a horrific shooting in January. Maybe Oprah can convince her to give her first interview on her final show? She's guaranteed to rake in millions and millions of viewers with Giffords as a guest.


A lot of people are speculating that Oprah's final guest will be Oprah herself. This makes the most sense: We need a show to reflect on 25 years of Oprah awesomeness and no one is more well-equipped to do it than the legend herself.

"How can one celebrity possibly sum up 25 years of such a groundbreaking show?" an insider asked PopEater's Rob Shuter. "Who could possibility come on the show and represent everything Oprah has done?"

Our thoughts exactly. We want Oprah to be the final guest on Oprah!
