TV contestants compete for a woman’s kidneys on Dutch reality show!

WHAAAAAATTTTT??? I’m all about reality TV, trust me I totally voted Sanjaya OFF TV. But this is taking reality to an entirely new level.

Outcry over TV kidney competition
A Dutch TV station says it will go ahead with a programme in which a terminally ill woman selects one of three patients to receive her kidneys.

Political parties have called for The Big Donor Show to be scrapped, but broadcaster BNN says it will highlight the country’s shortage of organ donors.

“It’s a crazy idea,” said Joop Atsma, of the ruling Christian Democrat Party.

The programme, from Big Brother creators Endemol, is due to be screened on Friday night.
