You'll recall that, a few weeks ago, we uncovered shocking proof that human cloning has reached its fullest potential by cloning Leonardo DiCaprio.

No, but there's a fat guy in Russia who looks very like him and, within a few short days, he went viral. Well, it seems that he's becoming a celebrity of sorts in his native Russia as DiCapriovich (that's what we're calling him) - real name Roman Burtzev - now has his own reality TV show. Yes, really.

The TV show, named Romance With DiCaprio (we think - Google Translate might have messed up on us), sees Roman going through a number of gruelling psychological challenges to find love and happiness. What kind of challenges, you ask?

Some of the sketches have included him crawling in a bear-skin tarp ala The Revenant, going on tuxedo-dressed dates with Russian models and belting out Celine Dion's classic, My Heart Will Go On, in a shopping centre. Judging by his Instagram, he's also clearly being put through some sort of diet, not to mention something that looks remarkably like a Botox treatment as well.

Russia is a strange, strange place. Let's hope this makes it way over to this side of the world because it honestly looks too good / weird to miss. Good on DiCapriovich for making the most of his newly-found celebrity, though.
