Otechestven Front specialises in real-life guests who have done extraordinary things.
But bosses at Nova TV are considering cancelling the programme after the fate of some guests caused the Bulgarian show to be called cursed.
The first victim – a brutal former crook identified only by his criminal nickname Marin ‘The Rose’ – simply collapsed and died within days of appearing on the show two years ago.
Another victim was ‘miracle mum’ Ivanka Arsova 62, who had a statue of the Virgin Mary that cried real tears.
Two days after the show, a stranger appeared at her door and said God was ‘calling her’. ‘Within a week she had died of undiagnosed cancer.
She had seemed completely healthy until then,’ local press reports said. Other victims include a disabled charity worker, a former prostitute and a drug addict who committed suicide on the way home from filming.
The latest victim – herbalist Halil Baev – died last month when he rushed back into his burning home after being rescued so he could save his black cat.
‘We are aware of what is being said about the show and we are looking into it. It might be that we need to change the format,’ said a channel spokesman.
