An Egyptian reality TV show has been condemned by viewers after American socialite Paris Hilton was subjected to a television prank in which a private plane she was travelling on appeared to be crashing.
The clip is from the Arab show “Ramez in Control,” also known as “Ramez Wakel el-Gaw”, which is hosted by Egyptian TV personality Ramez Galal. It was filmed in Dubai, where Hilton often travels for a business and pleasure.
Hilton seemed less than impressed, but took the news as gracefully as she could.
Suddenly alarms go off and the plane begins to nosedive as a screaming Hilton cries.
Paris Hilton has been left hysterical after she was involved in an epic plane prank. Paris is told that she has to jump and she screams, “No!”
Galal has pulled this prank during the past four Ramadans. The you-know-what really hits the fan at the 14-minute mark when the engines appear to cut out and the plane starts nosediving toward the ground.
One passenger opens up the jet’s side door and tosses a man out as Hilton yells: “What the f*** is happening?”
“No! I do not want to jump.”
After it was later revealed that it was all a hoax, a clearly shaken Paris told Ramez: ‘I nearly thought I was going to die.
She said: “This is definitely crazier than anything I’ve seen before”.
It’s unclear whether all the passengers were in on the joke with Galal, but from the looks of it, Hilton had no clue she was being pranked. “That’s been my biggest fear my whole life, dying in a plane”, as quoted by Huffington Post.
