Egyptian Reality TV, Staged Kidnappings and More


Ramz, the Desert Fox, a new reality in Egypt, is like an insane version of Punk'd, with Ashton Kutcher. Egyptian celebrities are lured onto tourist buses, which are then intercepted by the comedian host and his crew posing as armed terrorists.

The unsuspecting celebrity is blindfolded, and persuaded he or she is being kidnapped. To learn more about this comedy of terrors, we reached Cairo-based journalist Ashraf Khalil. Check out some video of the show after the break.
