In the finale of the Mark Burnett-produced Your OWN show: Oprah’s Search for the Next TV Star, Oprah Winfrey announced that the two finalists, Zach Anner and Kristina Kuzmic-Crocco, would each win their own shows on the net.

Anner will host the travel show Rollin’ Around the World, aimed at adventure-loving viewers. Kuzmic-Crocco will host Fearless Kitchen, a cooking show aimed at individuals who are afraid of messing up while cooking.

Both shows have received a six-episode commitment from OWN. Each series will be produced by Mark Burnett Productions.
