When Women Rule the World is an announced reality television series originally announced to premiere on Fox Broadcasting in spring 2007,[1][2] then pushed to June 2, 2008, then delayed again in April 2008.[3] However, the show never aired in the United States.[4]

The show consisted of 12 women and 12 men sent to a "primitive location" where the men were forced to be subservient to the women. The women voted off one man per week. The final man left was awarded $250,000. Cast members include Carla Turco, Jacky Reres, Karen Mangeney, Mike Babassi, Robbie Kaller. The show was hosted by Judi Shekoni.[5]

The show was broadcast in Finland on MTV3 and in Belgium on PLUG RTL (summer 2010).[6]

The United Kingdom's Channel 4 negotiated with Fox for a license to make a British version of the show, which aired for eight weeks starting on 4 September 2008.[7] The UK version was filmed in the Dominican Republic and hosted by Steve Jones.

The show consisted of eight women and ten men.[8] Ed won the competition, beating G-Range in the final. His prize was £30,000.
