I saw this interesting video today of a proposed reality show to be shot here that revolved around “Ultra Rich Asian Girls” of Vancouver. I guess you can say it seems to be going in the direction of all of those “Real Housewives of” shows where people get to view the drama revolving around rich people. This was the trailer I saw:
For the most part it seems like they are trying to find people who essentially inherited a lot of money and as a result are pretty carefree with the way they spend it. What caught my attention are the comments that people made such as how showing stuff like this will simply encourage people to be irresponsible for money. That got me thinking, does seeing things like this actually influence you to spend less or more in your life?
I know for myself, seeing things like this ironically makes me not want to be irresponsible with money. Am I the only one that thinks it’s silly for example to see someone buy such expensive things where they don’t seem to even think about the future or what would happen if they lost all their money one day? In that sense, it’s almost like it’s a free life lesson and in some ways is no different than reading stories of people who are say addicted to a certain substance. Like there, no matter how much you try to glamorize it I would think seeing it would discourage you from following that path.
