(Scroll down for video) A man was publicly thrown off a dating show after he bragged about killing his former wife and a lover.

However, the man claimed to be the victim of both women.

Sefer Calinak, 62, of Turkey, was a contestant on the “Luck of the Draw” show, which is a dating show for older people who want find a wife.

During the show, Calinak attempted to get sympathy from the audience by giving them a sob story about his life.

He told the crowd that he had served time in prison for both murders and had been released early under an amnesty program.

He told the host: “I am a honest person looking for a new wife,” before adding that he killed his first wife because he was irritated by her behavior and he later murdered his lover because he thought she was after his money.

Calinak was asked to leave, prompting applause from the studio audience.

His first wife was his cousin Fadime, who he married when they were both, 17 years old. Their marriage fell apart after 5 months and ended with Calinak killing her.

Calinak was found guilty of the murder, but released from prison after serving only four years and six months of his 14 year sentence.

He then married another woman, and they had two children, but they separated after he began having an affair with a married woman, who said she would leave her husband for him, but he said that she did not do so.

He then went on to explain that he killed her in self-defense after she attempted to kill him. “She was accidentally killed when I swung the axe,” he said.
