A new Israeli reality television show will pit English-speaking immigrants against each other.
In a show called “HaOlim,” eight new immigrants will go through a series of “Survivor”-like challenges acclimating to life in the Jewish state.
The winner “will be granted a golden ticket into Israeli society with a luxury apartment facing the beach in Tel Aviv, a brand new car, a dream job, and many more amenities to make for the ultimate Aliyah,” the Israeli producers, Highlight Films, says on the show’s Web site.
Filming is scheduled to begin in the fall. The company is accepting applications from would-be contestants.
