Dames in de Dop is a Dutch reality television show. The first season premiered in May 2007, which is based on the United Kingdom series Ladette to Lady. The show is currently airing its second season.
Whilst in Nieuw Rande they are required to wear the special uniform: a tweed suit including a turquoise jacket, white blouse, and turquoise skirt, high-heeled shoes and a pearl necklace. They are taught under the supervision and guidance of five instructors and are given various tasks in deportment, elocution, etiquette and cookery. However if they can't live up to the standards of acting ladylike, they will be expelled. A ladette is expelled every episode, so, by the end of the programme there will only be three ladettes left. Then the teachers must decide upon one winner, depending on who they think has improved the most and how the ladettes performed in the final challenge.
