I was reading the newspaper this morning and I was shocked to read a story about a new Dutch reality TV show in which three terminally ill contestants compete for a life saving kidney transplant. The audience is even encouraged to send in choices for their preferred candidate for who gets to live. Source That's absolutely disgusting, making choices like that about the lives of three people. Putting people in that sort of position where they have to actively compete to save their lives. I detest reality TV shows but this takes the cake... Here in Australia we aren't innocent though, Big Brother is on at the moment and one of the contestants hasn't been told that their father has died. During the last live show, an audience member held up a sign for the cameras saying "Emma, your father is dead". That person was quickly rushed out of the venue before the housemates picked up on it. What a wonderful world television is.
