Billionaire television producer John de Mol, behind the pioneer show Big Brother, will test the limits of reality TV with a program in which a woman searches for a potential sperm donor to conceive a child.
His new TV station Talpa, launched earlier this month, confirmed it will air a program called “I want your child … and nothing else!”.
“The plan is that we visit potential donors and — of course on camera — decide which man is most suitable,” the 30-year old woman who will feature in the program said in an interview with De Telegraaf newspaper.
“Afterwards there will be artificial insemination,” said the woman who was identified only as “Yessica” and who has bought a house with a room for a child.
The show is a one-off competing with four other reality TV programs, one of which follows five former prostitutes starting a cafe. The program receiving most votes from viewers Saturday, after all the shows have aired, will be turned into a series.
I wonder what mad idea they will think of next?
