Having been asked to appear on a TV reality show, Richard imagines the revival of his flagging career. However, he now suspects he may have become the butt of some ghastly joke.
Rabid constituents and demented and disastrous Tinder dates have cast Richard into a new slough of despondency. And then, the one light at the end of the tunnel - an invitation to appear on a popular TV reality show - is extinguished, when he inadvertently publicises his highly confidential invitation in a late night tweet. Richard now faces a sea of ignominy as the producers of the TV show deny all knowledge of him, and the horrible suspicion occurs to him that someone may have been playing a cruel and deeply humiliating prank - leaving Richard in a state of complete and abject despair.
