Oprah greets the crowd

10 of 13
As Terry and Candi prep Oprah, the crowd outside grows. "It's bigger than the crowd that will be at the Sydney Opera House," Terry says. "Everyone there is really excited to see Oprah, which is great, but I don't want it to be a security risk."

When Oprah arrives with the prime minister, the crowd goes wild. "I started noticing the crowd was really growing, quickly," Terry says. "It just kept closing in, and I could just feel them. I was like, 'Don't crush us. Don't crush Oprah.'"

"When I was in the middle of it, I was like, 'What in hell is this?'" Oprah says. "Walking along there, I'm trying to look like 'oh yes, it's normal to have screaming and carrying on,' and you're trying to look like you're having a normal conversation. But the reason I didn't stop it is because she's the prime minister. You're in their country. You can't now say, 'Can we go get a cup of coffee somewhere?'"
