Kasai Tomomi to Live off 10,000 yen for a Month in Reality TV Show
Kasai Tomomi will appear on reality TV show [1ヶ月1万円生活]. In this show, the contestants are given 10,000 yen to cover all living expenses for one month. This roughly translate to 125 US dollars, or 100 Euros, so it is a very tight budget, and the show is about how they survive living off this tiny amount of money.
At the end of the month, the contestant with the most amount of money left over is the winner. Kasai will be up against economic analyst Morinaga Takurou, and comedian Yoshimura Takashi from Heisei Nobushikobushi. The show will start airing from the 18th October 2012.
This show sounds hugely entertaining as the amount of money the contestants have to spend in a month is minuscule. It'll be very interesting to see how Kasai survives. In the past, Morning Musume member Michishige Sayumi appeared on the show and won.
