What’s so special about Dr. Oz that he gets be on the cover of 0 magazine. Oprah Winfrey has never before put a man on the cover… ever. In fact, she always makes herself the main image, but she announced that Dr. Mehmet Oz will be the first testosterone-driven being on the front of her January issue.

The reason she’s allowing his face to kick off 2012? “As we toast to a new year and encourage readers to take the first step toward a happier, healthier life, who better to help us get on the right path than my dear friend and America’s doctor, Dr. Oz[?]” Winfrey explained.

Of course, Dr. Oz isn’t on the cover alone. As always, Oprah sneaks herself in there, and you’ll be able to experience the issue on stands next week.
