Two spoiled British teens, Alex (18) and Ethan (18), have been sent to the Peruvian jungle to live the asháninka way of life. Without their Western comforts and instead a proposition to hunt and gather their own food.
What may have been a horrific experience for the beauty queen and the lazy drop-out, was aired on television for the pleasure of all on Tribal Teens…Here Comes Trouble.
A new reality show in Britain surrounds the stories of problematic teens sent to foreign and isolated regions around the world to learn a new way of life, and hopefully, turn their life around.
Alex presents the case of the rude teen who has never been told “no” in her life. While, Ethan is a school drop-out who got into drugs and lives on the couch.
The Guardian describes the show’s proposition, “An overindulged westerner goes to a desert, or a jungle, or a desolate hillside and is filmed looking despondent and/or flustered as they attempt some manual labour. Local hosts watch on patiently, wondering why no one ever taught this pale-faced wazzock how to pound leaves.”
At the end of the show, it appears that Alex and Ethan arrive to the conclusion that they have learned something new and have turned their lives around.
