There’s a new reality tv show in the works (hat tip – reader Craig):
There’s a new reality TV show,produced by Morusa Media, called “Who wants to marry a U.S. citizen?” that aims at creating marriages between U.S. citizens and immigrants who have temporary visas. The show is already generating mix reaction from some who say the show hurts the immigration process. However, others praise the match-making concept.
“We’re out to prove love knows no borders,” says Adrian Martinez, creator of the show. “Besides, that’s what America is all about — a multi-cultural nation.”
Similar to the “Dating Game,” one bachelorette (a U.S. citizen seeking aspouse) asks three bachelors (immigrants with temporary visas) various questions. Towards the end of the show, she decides which one she would marry.
According to the show’s host, Angelo Gonzales, the show makes it clear toall contestants that it does not guarantee marriage or legal status, but willpay for a wedding party and honeymoon should a marriage result from the show.
“We’re just out to play matchmaker,” says Gonzales. “There are thousands of U.S. citizens seeking a spouse, and just as many immigrants seeking thesame. So we want to make it a win-win situation for all involved.”
