A different Kind of Travel Show

Zach Anner took up Oprah's challenge to create a new program for her network, and Zack submitted a charming video. Although he did not win (reportedly, there was some controversy regarding the voting process)Zack was not deterred and has continued to create videos. Here's his audition:
