Dutch Kidney Game Show a Hoax

Sorry… No kidneys for you.

BBC reports:

A Dutch TV contest which purported to show a dying woman choose a patient to receive her kidneys was a hoax.
The “donor” in the show was in fact an actress – though the three people vying for an organ were real patients in need of a kidney transplant.

The three knew that The Big Donor Show, which aired on Friday, was not real. The producers say it was made to highlight the shortage of Dutch donors.

Before the hoax was revealed, the show had attracted widespread criticism.

Well yeah! How sick!

Jules Crittenden is disappointed.
