Vitor Belfort Kicked Off Reality Show!



Vitor Belfort Kicked off Reality Show!
By Eduardo Alonso

      Little more than a month since he joined Brazilian TV’s biggest reality show, "Casa dos artistas" [House of artists], "The Phenom" Vitor Belfort was voted out of the show on Sunday, April 21. Belfort received the most votes from Internet respondents, and also received 4 votes from the other members of the house. With that he went to the final vote with another participant. In the final vote, people who call the TV show live from home would decide who would get out of the house. After a short while Belfort was voted off by all of the persons who called the show to vote! With that he was forced to leave the house and now he’s out of the TV show.
      Vitor started to get some heat from the show’s spectators because of his jealousy for his girlfriend, Joana Prado, who’s also participating in the TV show. The couple was fighting all the time during the show, and most of time people thought that this was caused by Belfort’s jealousy and his image began to drop in the past two weeks. The show will continue with his girlfriend on it, but without "The Phenom." The couple was even starting to plan their wedding, with the sponsorship of the TV Channel that is promoting the show, and now everything is up for grabs with the couple’s future and most importantly with the Brazilian fighter’s career. Many are hoping that Belfort will resume his fighting career very soon, and get back to the Octagon to do what he does best: Fight. We’ll keep a close eye on the developments of Vitor Belfort’s career after the TV show.
