18 most outrageous reality tv dating shows
Reality shows where people compete for odd things in odd ways have become a television staple over the last two decades.But even amongst the oddest, a few stand out as being just too weird. Nasubi, a 23 year old Japanese man, lived in an apartment that was completely bare except for a telephone, magazine rack and coffee table.
He applied for the job under the understanding that if he was successful, the footage would be edited and shown as a segment on a different program — what he didn’t know was that he was the show.
Over the course of he won a variety of random items, such as tickets to a Spice Girls contest he couldn’t leave the apartment to see, a pair of ladies underwear (the only clothing he had for the show’s whole run), a bike he couldn’t ride, a watermelon, some bags of rice, golf balls, duck meat, and much more.
Months later the show was a huge success, prompting the producers to hire a staff of fifty people to make sure that Nasubi’s genitals were censored at all times.
When Nasubi finally managed to reach the goal of one million yen he was flown to Korea where he had to enter yet more competitions to pay for the price of his fare home.
Eventually, after fifteen months of isolation and with no idea that he was famous, Nasubi was taken to a TV studio and led into what he thought was an empty room.
