TV kidney competition was a hoax

The BBC is reporting that the controversial reality tv show called "The Donor Show" was in fact a hoax. Apparently, the women that was the donor was in fact an actress and the contests that were vying for the new kidney were real patients waiting for a kidney transplant, but knew going in that the show was a hoax.

So, no one going in will come out feeling like a loser since there was no kidney to win and they can be happy that much needed attention was brought to the donor shortage. But, whether people will remember the donor shortage or just the elaborate hoax that they put on, only time will tell.
