IBLP is developing a reality television show to air on the IBLP TV channel.
The program will be modeled after Donald Trump's wildly popular reality series The Apprentice. The series will be called I'm Bill's Little Protege (IBLP). Young people, particularly attractive, godly young women, will compete for a position on Bill Gothard's personal staff.
Contestants will be required to complete a rigorous application process to verify their commitment to Godly Standards. Once selected, participants will be judged on their character, godly looks, ability to memorize and blind obedience.
Losers will be condemned to service in Moscow.
"Apprenticeship is the godly method of training," said an IBLP spokesman.
Parents are thrilled about watching their sons and daughters compete for the opportunity to serve Mr. Gothard. "We rushed out and purchased our very first television," said one father in Missouri.
