Organizers of WYD reject offer to house pilgrims on set of popular reality show

.- World Youth Day organizers have rejected an “offer” by the producers of a German television program called “Big Brother” to house pilgrims on the set of the popular reality show.

A spokesman for WYD 2005, Matthias Kopp, said organizers refused the proposal made by Edemol, the producer of the program, which offered to let young people sleep on the set of the show in exchange for allowing some of them to appear on the program.

“A format such as that of Big Brother, which shows disrespect for people, is not appropriate for conveying the ideas and objectives of World Youth Day,” said Kopp.

World Youth Day will be held August 16-21 in Cologne.
