Dating game contestant admits to killing 2 women

Like the Clermont Lounge and Craigslist, a game show isn’t the best place to find non-rented love.

This truth was again revealed, this time on Turkish TV, when a 62-year-old dating game contestant admitted to killing his ex-wife and a former girlfriend.

USA Today tells us the alleged killer revealed a bit too much of his complicated history with women while appearing on the TV show “The Luck of The Draw.”

The cynic in me says this is a stunt to get people talking about a show Comcast doesn’t even carry, but let’s proceed as though everything typed is to be believed.

Contestant Sefer Calinak said he married his first wife, who was also his cousin, when she was 17. He is not from Alabama.

He said he killed her after about five months of unhappiness and spent four years in prison.

The second girlfriend/victim died, he allegedly alleged, after she refused to divorce her husband. She was killed, he said, after he accidentally swung an ax at her during an argument.

He served a 6-year sentence for that one, he said on TV.

After the second confession, Calinak was asked to leave the show.

Like most killers, he said it wasn’t his fault.

“Bad luck always found me,” Calinak said. “In spite of everything, I still want to get married. This time I’ll leave it to God.”

Is it possible USA Today, Reuters, Huffington Post and other news outlets have been punked?

I would say so. Even smart and good looking people like me can be fooled.

You can’t trust anyone these days.
