An American immigrant became Israel’s “ambassador” on a reality television show. Eytan Schwartz, an entertainment reporter who immigrated to Israel at 7, was the judges’ pick in the final episode of “The Ambassador,” aired Sunday. His prize is a yearlong job at an Israeli advocacy group in New York, all expenses paid. Schwartz narrowly beat Mahareta Bruch, originally from Ethiopia, and Zvicka Deutch, the Israeli-born son of British immigrants.
