The final episode of RTL 5's reality show "Echte Meisjes op de Prairie" (hosted by Patty Brard) aired on April 23rd and drew 330.000 viewers (overall market share: 4.7%). The program features ten "reality stars" who had to compete for the title of "best cow boy or girl" in Utah. Ricardo Sibelo (former candidate of "De Gouden Kooi") won the competition and the €23.500 prize.

Ricardo: winner of "Echte Meisjes op de Prairie"
Although she praised the hysteria of some participants and considered that the show was entertaining, Patty deplored in a recent column in Weekend magazine the poor viewing figures of the TV program (see news posted on March 28th 2013). However, #EMODP has been a trending topic on Twitter. Some episodes have hit the target audience (15-34 year old age group) and have reached the Top 5 of the daily Web TV report conceived by SKO (the Dutch audience measurement company) and based on streams. Despite these good results, the show has never achieved mainstream success. This failure is probably due to the fact that the "Echte Meisjes op de Prairie" was the third season of the "Echte Meisjes" series. The public has not been surprised. The 2011 and 2012 seasons scored better ratings.
