Various reality shows with practical joke elements are very popular today. A woman from the street is put into an unusual situation and his behavior is observed. And the observation is done secretly, in order to trace the sincere, not feigned reactions and actions. This was also the case this time: the presenter chose for the experiment a poorly dressed woman who looked like a homeless person. He got her talking and found out that she had neither a place to live nor a job. But, as it turned out, she had a young son.
So he pulled out a fat stack of dollars and gave them to the woman. The bills were small, so it didn’t end up being much – $283. But the stack of money looked impressive. What would she spend the money on?
The woman went into a large store, tried on things, but bought nothing. Then she ate one small ice cream sundae. Would it not be possible to film what the money would go for? The authors of the program were already disappointed, but then something unexpected happened.
A woman went to the animal shelter. She spent her “gift” on a puppy! Everyone was taken aback by this turn of events. The presenter could not help himself and went up to her. He confessed that the woman was being followed and asked her why she hadn’t bought something material. She could not explain clearly what had moved her. She only said that things are secondary, they do not please the soul.
The emotional television workers gave the woman more money so that she could buy food for her new pet.
