A Russian multi-millionaire is letting his children pick out his next wife.
54-year-old Konstantin Scherbinin, a Russian multi-millionaire who made his fortune in the oil business, is letting his children pick out his next wife on a controversial reality show called ‘Millionaire for Marriage’.
Scherbinin has allegedly vowed to respect the on-screen decision of his three daughters and one son, and propose to the lucky woman they select out of the 2,000 hopeful candidates. To show his commitment to the reality show, the oil mogul has designated his oldest son to run his businesses while he and the rest of the family focus on finding a new bride. The producers of Millionaire for Marriage have been criticized by Russian viewers for turning a show that is supposed to be about love into a battle for a sugar daddy who can provide a comfortable life for the winner.
The premise of the show is pretty straightforward. Before getting a chance to actually meet the eligible bachelor, candidates have to first convince his children that they have what it takes to become a member of their family. Women are brought out in groups to stand in front of the young Scherbinins for a few seconds, while they look them up and down and comment on their appearance and age. Most of them get rejected in a rather brutal and humiliating fashion.
Finally, the winner, chosen by the Scherbinin children, will receive a marriage proposal from the millionaire himself, and it will be up to her to reciprocate.
The leftover flowers from this weekend’s royal wedding are being donated to patients in hospice in London.
Brides and grooms often have a lot of leftover flowers from their weddings and receptions, and that was the case after the royal wedding Saturday. But Harry and Meghan found a lovely way to give a second life to the blooms from their nuptials - they donated them to patients at a hospice in London.
"Today we got a very special delivery. Beautiful bouquets made from the #royalwedding flowers which we gave to our patients," St. Joseph's Hospice wrote on Facebook, along with a photo of a smiling patient holding a bouquet. "A big thank you to Harry and Meghan and florist Philippa Craddock. Our hospice smells and looks gorgeous. Such a lovely gesture."
The new Duchess of Sussex also sent her bridal bouquet to Westminster Abbey to “rest on the Grave of the Unknown Warrior,” as a tribute to those who died in World War I and other military conflicts, according to a press release.
