Talk About Unreality Shows – “The Next Prime Minister”

It’s a Canadian TV show in which contestants try to convince former Prime Ministers they have what it takes to run the country. “The contest has already received hundreds of video submissions from Canadians aged 18 to 29. The show, set to be taped in Toronto on Jan. 30 and airing Feb. 4, will have the former PMs picking a winner from the top five finalists. Policy goals are a big criteria in the contest, but how well the contestants sell themselves to the former PMs is said to be the point of the show. The winner gets $50,000 in cash and a six-month paid internship in both the public and private sector.”
