She has teamed up with reality TV producer Mark Burnett for the show, which starts in January when OWN - The Oprah Winfrey Network - goes on air.
The hopefuls are already being invited to upload videos in a number of categories including interior design and cooking, reports bbc.co.uk.
"Much in the way American Idol finds unknown people, there's no reason we can't find someone who deserves their own show," said Burnett.
While visitors to Winfrey's website can watch hopefuls and vote for them, auditions will take place in Texas and California this month.
