New Gender-Bending Reality Dating Series Set to Hit the U.S.

Now this is one big, hot mess waiting to happen. And I’d be lying if I didn’t say that part of me is so disturbed by the idea of this that I’m secretly dying to watch it. There’s a new reality dating series set to hit the U.S. and in the spirit of “Joe Millionaire,” the premise is to lead the contestants to believe something very different about the object of their collective affection and then hit them with the truth at the end of the show. Only this time, instead of finding out that Joe isn’t rich, it’s more along the lines of, “By the way, I have a penis.” Originally a UK series, the show was titled, “There’s Something about Miriam,” and contestants competed in the hopes of dating Miriam, a Mexican 21-year-old model, only to find out in the final episode that Miriam is, in fact, a man. Yikes. Lawyers, on your mark, get set…GO! I have a feeling this is just going to end up a violent, hate-crime filled suing fest with at least one slow-car police chase.
