    Efeoghene Ori-Jesu is watching the US election as though it is a reality TV show

    Tonight Efeoghene Ori-Jesu, 34, is watching the US elections out of sheer curiosity and interest in the scandal value.

    "I am excited at the possibility of a first female president of the United States, a first person to move into the White House as a spouse after being president (Bill Clinton) and by how close the race is with Donald Trump.

    "I've seen issues as normal as gender equality, racial tolerance, immigration and nationalism take centre stage in a First World country as if they were a developing country. I also really enjoyed the three debates and want to see how Americans will choose based on or irrespective of those.

    "It's really none of my business but it's been sold to me like the best reality TV show ever and I'm curious to see how it ends."
