The Kidney Reality Show

An Australian kidney health organisation has slammed a Dutch TV program, in which viewers will decide who wins a kidney transplant, saying it will put the donor and the patients under enormous stress.

Dutch broadcaster BNN plans to air a television show next week in which a terminally ill woman will decide which of three young patients will get her kidney.

Viewers will send text messages to the 37-year-old woman, known as Lisa, advising her which of the candidates to pick.


Obviously, it's not true.

At least, it better not be fucking true, and someone out to find this out quickly, and let the Age know. Me too.
