Ivana Young Man finally airs this weekend

Ivana Trump’s reality special finally airs on Oxygen this weekend, debuting Saturday at 8 p.m. ET. On the show, Ivana helps a middle-aged woman select from “six hunks”

The show was originally commissioned by FOX, which later decided not to air it last August. But Oxygen picked up the two-hour special.

Ivana makes decisions in a bedroom, and there’s a cash prize for the winner, instead of just a failed relationship. That makes the show a “a cross between The Bachelorette and The Apprentice,” and includes “physical and mental challenges as well as a personal interview and a private date,” according to The Sun-Sentine’s Tom Jicha.
