Lapdance island reality TV fools 20,000

When this form for Lapdance Island seeking potential men to be on the show appeared on channel 4's website last week, some people were suspicious. That didn't stop over 20,000 men from filling out the form on why they should be picked to be on the Reality TV show "Lapdance island".

The ad for E4 show stated they were looking for "10 hot blooded males to battle it out as 40 lapdancers do everything in their power to make it hard for them."

The show would have competitors completing tasks much like a regular Robinson episode, while lapdancers "harassed" the contestants for extra spice. Some MeFi posters suspected foul play or some sort of hoax.

A spokesman for channel 4 said "It was unbelivable, we had thousands of applications from eager blokes" - though I'm not in the least suprised.

What the eager hopefuls did not realise is that they were being set up - and secretly filmed for a new comedy show called "The Pilot Show" which will run on E4. Brandrepublic has more.
