(Newser) – Zach Anner, a self-described “wheelchair-bound lady magnet,” is the latest viral video star—and he could be the next Oprah. Anner submitted a video to the talk show queen’s “Your Own Show” contest, a search for the next TV star, Time reports. Anner, who has cerebral palsy (he calls it “the sexiest of the palsies”), wants to create a travel show “designed to inspire people who never thought they could travel”—and his hilarious submission currently owns the top spot with more than 2.6 million votes.

Watch Zach’s audition tape, as well as his follow-up thanking the Internet (and John Mayer), in the gallery. More videos can be found on his YouTube channel.
