Can reality TV sink any lower? In a word: yes. Apparently, Francis Mathews, the son of Princess Olga Andreevna of Russia and Tom Mathews, is playing a prince on TV ... Prince Alexander .. on the Ukrainian edition of the Bachelor. Spare me, please.
Francis, a freelance photographer, is a British commoner. His mother is a descendant of a morgantic marriage. He is not a Romanov, nor is he a prince, but he apparently plays one on TV - and 25 luscious Ukraine babes are being suckered into a fractured fairy tale.
I cannot believe Ukraine television viewers are that gullible. I know times in the Ukraine are truly tough, but it is necessary to foster a false identity for someone who is British and a commoner.
