The midget running around Uruguay with a side of beef was surreal, but the latest reality TV pitch is downright sinister. The company that brought us Big Brother get genetic:
In the show, which has been mooted by the company that makes Channel 4’s Big Brother, up to 1,000 men would attempt to convince a woman to pick them as the father of her first child by impressing her with their intelligence, sex appeal and fitness.
A second sperm donor would be chosen on the basis of genetic compatibility, and the two finalists would then take part in the sperm race in which the insemination process could be filmed using new technology.
I imagine they’ll call it “The Master Race”. Five bucks on the one with two tails.
