Is she pregnant or just fat? It might be something – a sly little game – you and your partner or a pal play when you see a lady with a bump in the middle. But you’d feel a little guilty, we reckon. You certainly wouldn’t pitch the concept to a panel of TV Executives, would you? No. But someone did. In the Netherlands.
That’s right. A new Dutch reality TV game show thingy hit screen recently in Europe and it’s causing quite the stir. It’s called Neem Je Zwemspullen Mee (which roughly translates to ‘Bring Your Bathing Suit‘).
Four dudes take part as a woman walks on stage. They assess her with their eyes and take notes, talking about her and how the bump looks and how it sits. Is she with child? Or just porky? It’s crazy.
What a show. They also have a segment where they get people to guess if an Asian dude is Chinese or Japanese. Yup. Really.
'Neem Je Zwemspullen Mee' was al vorig jaar op @NPO_3Lab met andere voorbeelden zoals: is dit een Chinees of een Japanner? pic.twitter.com/7g5APzFvAX

So, then. Here it is. In all its classy glory… Fat or Pregnant. Play along or be disgusted. It’s up to you!
