Oh dear. It looks like Prince Harry is getting the Joe Millionaire treatment.
If you have access to the Internet, cable television, or a gossip magazine or have even the most limited knowledge of the British monarchy, chances are you’ll know who Prince Harry is. Somehow, somewhere, though, there are still people walking amongst us who have no idea who he is or what he looks like, for that matter.
And if you’re reading this blog right now, there’s a good chance that you’re not one of them.
Fox is set to debut a new reality television show called I Wanna Marry Harry, with 12 blissfully clueless American women vying for Prince Harry’s heart. The only problem is that these women have been duped into thinking that they are going to be competing for the real Prince Harry, but instead, they’ll be tricked by Prince Harry impersonator and actor Matthew Hicks.
While Matthew shares the same physical characteristics as our good ole’ Prince Harry, the only thing royal about him is the joke he’s about to play on these 12 unsuspecting Kate Middleton-hopefuls. Matthew will be keeping up the prince charade for the entire show and will only break the news about his real identity at the very end.
Talk about a very twisted take on The Bachelor, right?
I Wanna Marry Harry, which is produced by Ryan Seacrest and ZigZag Productions, will debut May 27 at 8pm EST on FOX.
