Tennessee man, Orlando Shaw, fathers 22 kids with 14 different woman, gets reality show VIDEO

A man who fathered 22 kids by 14 different women  – earning himself the title ‘America’s biggest deadbeat dad’ – is to get his own reality TV show.

It comes after unemployed Orlando Shaw, 33, was filmed boasting outside a Nashville courthouse following a child support hearing, ‘the ladies don’t like me, they love me.’

The interview, recorded by Nashville’s NewsChannel, has since gone viral. It has been estimated that the state of Tennessee pays around $7,000 each month to help support Shaw’s children.

He says he signed a production deal with a prominent Los Angeles agency to begin a reality TV show. Any money he makes from the TV show would be garnished to pay for his children.

Shaw claims he is a devoted father, he just can’t afford to pay what he owes in child support. He vows he won’t have any more kids.

When faced with the thought of having a vasectomy, Shaw appeared worried that his genitals wouldn’t work anymore.

“Have you seen the movie War Horse? I’m a war horse and I don’t want to be cut down there and it won’t work the right way no more,” Shaw said.
