Oprah's first task? Cuddling koalas on Hamilton Island in the territory of Queensland. "There are only two places in the whole country where you can pick up koalas, and this is one of them," Jill says. "This is going to set the tone for the entire week. This first stop has to knock it out of the park"
As Oprah drives her golf cart to the sanctuary, she is met by throngs of onlookers. "The one thing that makes me nervous is security," Jill says. "I feel a little overwhelmed by crowds gathering."
Oprah says she was surprised. "I was somewhat fascinated by the number of people who were so enthusiastic," Oprah says. "All these people are screaming, and I'm trying to get through the crowd, watch the crowd, look for crazy people—all of that at the same time. That was stunning to me."
"I'm thinking that this could be a very interesting week of shooting," Sheri says. "This could get a little crazy."
