I'm Confused.com: Would you wanna marry "Harry"?

The eighth most confusing issue for Brits in May was that of the ‘Prince Harry’ dating show, 'I Wanna Marry "Harry"'.

In this 'reality' programme, a dozen hopefuls vie for the affections of a young man who’s supposedly third in line to the throne. Except ‘Prince Harry’ isn’t all that he appears (PLOT SPOILER: It’s not actually Prince Harry).

The Fox show has just hit the UK, and sees twelve candidates competing for what they believe to be some right royal lovin':

Except that dashing eligible young ginger gent isn't really Prince Harry. It's just some bloke called Matt Hicks:

But what's the most confusing thing about the show? Is it that the twelve contestants are successfully hoodwinked into potentially dating a 'prince'? Or that the show was commissioned in the first place?

'I Wanna Marry "Harry"' airs on ITV on a Wednesday, 9pm.
