I would like to propose a new tv show-"surviving poverty". There could be someone like Bear Grylls, trying to survive half a year in several poverty situations in harsh environments, like in africa, where people die of hunger, in some asian countries, where they get a bunch of rice to eat or even some
baltic states, where some families with children live on some 0.5 eur/person/day. Another interesting challenges could be added like fighting racketeers in poor african countries or trying to survive a winter in a rented flat with children, trying not to go bankrupt paying for expensive food, heating, medicine, etc (maybe even being jobless). The rich world would be amazed to see.

||[RayfordSteele] Definitely not.

||There are already several shows somewhat like this - "Blood, Sweat and T-shirts" and its successors have the poverty, "Tribe" has someone like Bear Grylls.
