Oprah's Farewell Season Premiere
Crystal's now 26 years old and teaches at Heskett Middle School, just outside of Cleveland, Ohio. "Ms. Brooks is the greatest, friendliest teacher ever," one student says.
She may not have become a talk show host, but Oprah still wants to see how her old friend is doing. One afternoon, she surprised Crystal and her students with a video message. "I couldn't imagine kicking off our 25th season without one of my original, youngest Ultimate Viewers," Oprah said. "Ms. Brooks, there is a car waiting outside right now to bring you to the airport to come to Chicago for our season premiere!"
