Poor Prince Harry. He's such a loser in love that he has to turn to a reality show to find a woman. Or so Fox would have you believe. The network somehow managed to convince 12 single American idiots girls that "average English bloke" Matthew Hicks--who sort of looks like Prince Harry--actually is Prince Harry, and that they might actually marry into the royal family.
