CPF blogger to star in reality TV series ‘So You Think You Can Blog And Get Sued?’

Posted on 14 January 2015

It takes a special kind of something to be able to do this consistently.


A Singaporean blogger who found fame in the midst of successfully getting sued for defamation is in talks to star in his very own reality TV series.

Called “So You Think You Can Blog And Get Sued?”, it will follow the lives of 10 wannabe bloggers who take advice from the CPF blogger.

Throughout the season, they will learn how to write defamatory blog posts and put them online, all in the hopes it will lead to someone who was defamed along the way to sue them.

The eventual winner will be judged by how many lawsuits he or she accumulates.

As talks for the show’s development are still underway, the show’s producer, who agreed to speak on condition of anonymity, said: “The CPF blogger would mentor young bloggers to put together information in a defamatory way.”

“One of the tasks is to write a very long incoherent blog post about a given topic, but somehow still managing to sneak in PM Lee’s name and allude to a criminal case in Singapore that is pending.”

“Extra points will be awarded for contestants who manage to get fired from their day jobs while going through the season.”

One contestant, who cannot be named but gave her surname as Han, said: “I hope I can be taught how to do research using only Google. And making those tiny connections between nuggets of facts that are totally unrelated to appear like there is causality.”

“It takes a special kind of something to be able to do this day after day, even with the repercussions hanging over my head.”

Each week, the blogger who fails to elicit a response from those they defamed will be booted out of the show.

The eventual winner of the series will be taught a bonus course on how to raise funds from the public.
