why america sucks: who wants to marry a u.s. citizen

Wow. It's simply astounding how reality television continues to sink to amazing new lows. Case in point: a new reality game show called Who Wants to Marry a U.S. Citizen... and yes, it's as horrible as it sounds: Show seeks to love match migrants and U.S. citizens. The show aims to create televised matrimony between legal citizens and immigrants who have temporary visas. Lord have mercy on us:
The show's backers at Morusa Media hope to make a sort of love match between reality TV and a national obsession with immigration. But the producers make no promise that a marriage will occur or lead to U.S. citizenship.

Show creator Adrian Martinez said that Morusa Media has not yet found a network to produce or air the show, but he is currently in talks with one cable TV network and already has signed up contestants for six episodes

"It's this generation's 'Dating Game,' but with a twist -- it aims to show love knows no borders," Martinez told Reuters.
Amazing. It apparently works like the old Dating Game. On the show, a single U.S. citizen gets to ask contestants various questions. Toward the end of the show, he or she decides which one to select as a potential mate... and lucky girl number 3 gets her papers! Everybody wins! The show's producers will not guarantee marriage or legal status, but they'll apparently pay for a wedding party and honeymoon should a marriage result. So far, most of the contestants are Hispanic immigrants, although at least one is from the Philippines. My goodness. I am sad for humanity.
