I’m liking this show. It reminds me of “The Simple Life” and I’m sure that was an inspiration for the show. Sometimes, I wonder why I watch this stuff, but I find it interesting to see someone who has come from nothing but privilege come face to face with a life they’d never normally see…or even I would not otherwise see.
Good job, MTV! I’m watching the one now when Ava gets sent to Thailand and lives with Ladee and her family. Ladee was soooooo patient with Ava.
Here’s an excerpt of this episode (episode 2) summary from MTV.com…
Although she has never lifted a finger, her parents have fed her insatiable appetite for the good life just the same. As a global studies major, Ava loves to travel and experience new cultures. She’s been to Third World countries … but always travels first class and stays in high-end hotels. Fed up, her mother thinks it’s time to rip the silver spoon out of Ava’s mouth. Yes, it’s time for Ava to roll up her sleeves … because she’s being Exiled!
I am curious about the kind of preparation MTV gives the host families prior to sending these spoiled, ungrateful brats in their homes, and I hope that they make some kind of financial contribution or something that doesn’t make me wonder if they’re exploiting the families nor their culture.
