    Maybe this is just me but as the fourth kidney recipient in my family I find this completely tasteless!

    I would agree, it is very, very sad. What of those who are also on the show but do not "win" the kidney?

    It may generate discussion around the issue, but there has to be another way.

    Where have we come to win "winning" body parts is entertainment?

    Well, now it has been revealed that it is all a hoax. That makes me even more angry!

    Dutch kidney-donor reality show a hoax

    Supposed donor was actually healthy actress; contestants were in on it

    AMSTERDAM - A television show in which a woman would donate a kidney to a contestant was revealed as a hoax Friday, with presenters saying they were trying to pressure the government into reforming organ donation laws.

    It is shameful. It seems they believe the means justify the ends.
