The show, Neem Je Zwemspullen Mee (translation: Bring Your Bathing Suit), aired for the first time on Sunday night and asks contestants to guess if women were overweight or pregnant or if their breasts were real or fake, the New York Post has reported.

Naturally, the typically tolerant and inclusive Dutch are outraged at the program and have launched a petition to have Neem Je Zwemspullen Mee taken off air.
