Oprah's season premiere also featured the story of 20-year-old Alex, who dreamed of going to college and succeeding, despite having spent the majority of her life bouncing from foster homes to shelters to the streets of Los Angeles. On the show, she was surprised with not only a makeover by supermodel Tyra Banks, but SBC Communications also gave her a full tuition scholarship to the college of her choice!
But it didn't end there! After the show, the executives from General Motors® scrambled to make another dream for Alex come true: they gave her a brand new 2005 Pontiac® G6™!
