Wha??? *Scratches head*
I don't know quite what to say about this. It would be amusing if it weren't so nauseating and full of abuse, death, and injury.

I'm having a "WTF?" moment.

BEIJING, China (CNN) -- A married Chinese businessman who could no longer afford five mistresses held a competition to decide which one to keep.
The businessman and his spurned mistress met in Qingdao, pictured here last August, local media report.

But the contest took a fatal turn when one of the women, eliminated for her looks, drove the man and the four other competitors off a cliff, Chinese media reported.

The spurned mistress died and the other passengers were injured, the reports said.

Police initially thought the car had plummeted off a mountain road in eastern China on December 6 by accident. Then they learned of the contest through a letter the dead woman had left behind, the Shanghai Daily newspaper said.

The 29-year-old woman, identified only as Yu, was a waitress when she met the businessman at a restaurant in the coastal city of Qingdao in 2000.

At the time, the businessman, identified only by his last name -- Fan -- was married and had four other mistresses, according to the Peninsula Metropolis Daily newspaper in Qingdao.

The women knew of one another, but none elected to break up with the man and give up their rent-free apartment and a 5,000 yuan ($730) monthly allowance, the reports said.

When the economy soured, the businessman apparently decided to let go of all but one mistress.

He staged a private talent show in May, without telling the women his intentions. An instructor from a local modeling agency judged the women on the way they looked, how they sang and how much alcohol they could hold, the Shanghai Daily said.

The judge knocked out Yu in the first round of the competition based on her looks. Angry, she decided to exact revenge by telling her lover and the four other women to accompany her on a sightseeing trip before she returned to her home province, the media reports said.

It was during the trip that Yu reportedly drove the car off the cliff.

Fan shut down his company after the crash and paid Yu's parents 580,000 yuan ($84,744) as compensation for her death.

The four other women left him, as did his wife when she learned of the affairs.

Shh... don't let anyone in Hollywood know... there will be yet another reality show if they find out about this.
You're just jealous because the voices are talking to me and not you.

When I read the story the thought that popped into my head was that the dude has been watching too many reality shows like "marry a millionaire" or whatever the hell it's called. hahahahaha
I got to the third paragraph and said to myself "he must be one rich SOB for her to react like that. Sure enough he was rich enough to pay their living expenses. then when it got the part where the other mistresses left him and his wife I wasn't surprised since he's broke now. It is a shame the one mistress died. What a prick this guy is to do that to them. To judge them like that. Why couldn't he ohhh say be honest with them in the first place and just gently break up with all of them instead of humiliating them. too bad they didn't all ban together and each one give him a good swift kick in the :butt:

DT they would probably choose another Bachelor show. The Bachelor picks one and 5 mistresses LOL

My only regret is that some of them survived going over the cliff.

The thing that I found funny about the show "The Bachelor" is how these women were crying and all upset because they didn't get picked for the next round.... Oh, OK, you are really upset and emotional because some guy you met 5 minutes ago didn't choose you to be his girlfriend. Go out and find a real man, there's plenty of them out there.
