Genesis 29 and 30

So in these chapters Jacob does the following:

  •     Marries Leah (whom he really did not want to marry)
  •     Marries Rachel (whom he really did want to marry)
  •     Slept with Leah
  •     Slept with Rachel
  •     Has three sons with Leah
  •     Rachel "gives" Jacob her servant Bilhah to sleep with
  •     Jacob slept with Bilhah
  •     Jacob had a son with Bilhah
  •     Jacob had a second son with Bilhah
  •     Leah got jealous
  •     Leah "gives" Jacob her servant Zilpah to sleep with
  •     Jacob had a son with Zilpah
  •     Jacob had a second son with Zilpah
  •     Leah bought a night with Jacob with some mandrakes
  •     Jacob had a fifth son with Leah
  •     Jacob had a sixth son with Leah
  •     Jacob had a daughter with Leah
  •     Jacob had a son with Rachel

So over the course of two chapters her marries two women who are sisters, is "given" the servants belonging to these women, has 12 sons (and a daughter.)

Shouldn't there have been a reality show…?
