Ben-SouthallBen Southall, the man with the “Best Job in the World” has filmed a 5 minute satellite interview with Oprah Winfrey.

The ‘caretaker’ of Hamilton Island will be seen by over seven million Americans on her US show.

Queensland Premier (and fast becoming something of a TEN ‘caretaker’ herself) Anna Bligh, said: “Ben recently spoke to Oprah by satellite from Hamilton Island and I know he has been singing the praises of our beautiful state.

“His guest appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show will be seen by approximately 7.4 million viewers in the US alone and broadcast internationally to an additional 145 counties around the world.

Oprah has been the number one US talk show for 23 seasons and Ben’s appearance will deliver an unprecedented level of publicity for Queensland.”

Since he took up the six-month post in July, Southall has given more than 150 media interviews including the BBC, Le Parisien, CCN, Shanghai Morning Post, The UK’s Daily Telegraph, CBC, Sky News, Germany’s RTL and Israel’s Yedoith.

He won the job following a worldwide search via a competition conducted by Tourism Queensland.
