A man who appeared on a Turkish TV dating show in search of a new partner shocked the audience by revealing he had murdered his former wife and an ex-lover.

Sefer Calinak, 62, told Flash TV’s “Luck of the Draw” he had served prison sentences for each of the slayings and had been released under an amnesty program.

“I’m an honest person looking for a new wife,” he told the show, explaining he killed his first wife because her behavior “irritated” him and then murdered a subsequent partner because he thought she was after his money. Calinak was asked to leave the show by the host, prompting applause from the studio audience.
