Having trouble affording all your mistresses?

Twisted contest takes a tragic turn

Forced to dump all but one of his five mistresses, one Chinese businessman decided to hold a competition to decide which to keep. The winner would receive a monthly US$800, and an apartment. They presented themselves in front of a modeling judge, gave speeches, sang songs, and drank alcohol (to prove their mettle). His twisted contest turned fatal when one of the women, eliminated early, for her looks, drove the businessman and four remaining contestants off a cliff. Only she died. The businessman paid her parents $85,000. His wife and 4 mistresses have since left him.
