American reality shows are for cream puffs. For the really tough stuff, you've got to go to the Netherlands, where The Big Donor Show debuts Friday. Contestants on that one win a a new kidney. Really -- the host is a terminally ill 37-year-old woman named Lisa, who's giving away one of her kidneys to the winner. Is this a stroke of marketing genius, or what? If the show is a hit, she's still got another kidney, a liver, a heart and two lungs to distribute, not to mention all kinds of eyeballs and spleens and other less glamorous organs that can be distributed to second-place winners. Personally, I'd start watching American Idol again if Jordin Sparks had walked away with Paula Abdul's liver.
Coming soon on Fox
