In a challenge not to leave a circle with 99 other people, more than one who left prematurely got a few thousand dollars, and commented that what he will do with them is pay bills. Whoever accepted the challenge of living in a supermarket for 45 days for $250.000, he divided his expenses between debts, the mortgage and paying for the university education of his two children.
