Chaos and hilarity ensue in this hysterical spoof of several popular reality TV shows! When poor King Evian uses his last dying words (as he falls out the window) to pass royal succession not to greedy Prince Daft but to Yokel, a foolish hillbilly, everyone agrees Yokel needs a wife to help him run the kingdom. His staff brings in eligible young ladies to vie for the new king’s hand, including Agatha Peabody, a high-society matron; Priscilla Tradewells-Ayers-Hollander-Morley, a four-times-married gold digger; Sally Valley, a ditzy cheerleader from L.A.; Crushin’ Kanisha, a New York City gangster-type; and Jane Claxton, a true-hearted cowgirl from Texas.
