Our Prisoner Should Be Interesting For a Good 5 Minutes

Our Prisoner is, clearly, a publicity stunt for the email company producing it. It will be a six month long, twenty four hour a day Internet television program that will follow the life of a 35 year old man named Kieran who is, according to the site, a loser. He will not be able to leave the house, and the only room that won’t be on camera is the bathroom. Everything he does, from when he sleeps, what he wears and eats, and who he dates will be determined by a vote of the viewers. If you want to be the next prisoner for a future show, you can sign up on the home page.

I just don’t see this working out very well for the company or for poor Kieran. Something tells me it will get old, fast.
