Yes we are serious, this happened.
Ok, we know at this stage in the tv business it is hard to come up with new and original TV shows. We have seen some shows that we can’t believe made it out of the original brain storm meeting. The likes of ‘Sex Box’ and ‘Naked Dating’ are so bizarre we can’t believe it’s allowed on our everyday channels.
There is a new reality game show in the Netherlands. We gave it a background check to make sure it’s really and shockingly it is! This show has gone that one step too far!
For everyone thinking The Netherlands is great. We reached a new low yesterday night. National TV game show: "is she pregnant or just fat?" pic.twitter.com/HlNiBGYeJ4

It’s called Neem Je Zwemspullen Mee ( ‘Bring Your Bathing Suit’). It revolves around 4 men sitting down while a woman walks on the stage. The men then eye up the woman while she gives and twirl and they have to guess whether she is pregnant or fat… no lie!
After the show was released and people were outraged, the Dutch TV Network defended themselves in a statement that read:
“Your ‘fat or pregnant’ shows how you can go wrong if someone evaluates his or her appearance.
With a satirical setting, it is a way to laugh off all kinds of prejudices.”
SO there you have it, just laugh it off..
There isn’t any english subtitles but you can see for yourself below.
