Survivor Greece: Astronomical Amounts while People losing their Jobs

I really got frustrated, even when thinking about writing this post but if i just manage and "change" one person's mindset i will be more than happy. This pandemic was a tragedy none actually expected to happen.

It came out of nowhere and when something that has a direct impact on the economy comes out of nowhere then it's bad news. At first, i think many people didn't quite grasp how serious the situation was.

Soon enough a lot of people started to lose their jobs and fast forward that led to a lot of businesses losing money and going bankrupt. To add to that the whole tourist section witnessed something completely new for them. They saw their profits and earnings going straight to hell!

I don't think i should tell you about the psychological effects this whole pandemic caused to mankind. That's for me is the worst thing that happened and the majority out there is completely unaware of it, but that's for another post.


Survivor The Reality

During this situation which is full of hardships, the people behind the TOP Channels in Greece decided that it's time for reality shows. For me, the majority of reality shows are worthless both because of the content but ofc because they promote "unhealthy" role models.

So among these realities, we have Survivor which started a couple of weeks ago. The whole reality is based on an island in which there are 2 teams. The first one is full of "celebrities" and the second one of random people that nobody knows (but strife to become famous i would add).

So they chose a bunch of retards that people supposedly wanna see or that they consider will give them more views and the reality started. Note that among the "celebrities" there are singers, actors, wannabe influencers and YouTubers.


How Much They Got Paid

So let's start with the smaller numbers. Before we do that note that the basic salary in Greece is around 550 euros. So team 2 which is called the fighters and are "unknown" people are paid from 500 euro to 1000 euro per week.

Yeah, you heard right, a minimum of 2000 euros and a maximum of 4000 per month while the basic salary is 550 per month. Let's now move to the "celebrities" and see what's up with them and how much they earn

The minimum for the "celebrities" is 3000 euro and the maximum 6500 per week. Meaning 12000 euro to 26000 per month while let's say an average salary of 750 monthly will give to an everyday citizen around 10000 euro per year.

Can you comprehend this?

People who are actually offer nothing to society like the wannabe influencers earn more than teachers, scientists, doctors. What does say about our society and us as individuals.

Because it's our fault as well. If nobody actually watched the show or followed these dumbasses on social media then we wouldn't face that issue right now.

Why for example we can't spend that amount of money to hire more nurses? To help people who are in need? To support businessmen that are trying to survive this chaos?

Because we are fucked up, is the answer. By watching them we ignore our problems for a while and ofc we have something to complain about. The channels are businesses and they do what do to generate money, it's our decision to watch or not to watch.

"Ohh look how much she gets paid while doing nothing" Then stop watching the reality show and stop following her. We are the ones who give this kind of people value.

At the end of the day the real question is who is the actual survivor?


What do you think about that? Is it ok to have payrolls like these, while people are losing their jobs and can't afford to live?

Because people need circus. Trust me, if less people would watch crap like that they would go out of business. I don't watch reality shoes as it make me sick, not interested in the crap they are serving.

People need to turn off the television in general.

hehe they need a circus to feel superior or in other words forget that they actually are a circus as well :0

Money is no longer a measurement of your output or your time it’s only a measure of how close you are to the people who print the money! Of which many of us aren’t anywhere close! I used to feel the same way frustrated at this idea and then I realized that the money they are getting is worth nothing and I have real money in Bitcoin

And I’ll keep collecting it! Let them squander the fortunes it’s all part of the cycle we as humans have loved through it many times! If you haven’t you should check out the documentry the four horsemen it’s on YouTube

that one?

Yes that’s the one

i am watching this tonight!

That is true although some claim the celebrity cycle peaked and is starting to head downward. We will see what the next decade brings.

I buy into this notion because of the fact that we are going to see more in the virtual world which makes many of these people obsolete.

For now we just need to keep building up crypto to provide an alternative solution to the masses.

By the way, here is today's chat.

a couple of years ago that was the case in greece as well. Now with the lockdown and crisis they "uplift" them again.

totally agree with the rest

You did sim it up very well. We are giving them value and credit.
Turn off the TV guys, or at least stop watching what they want you to watch.
Big changes can come from our small behaviour changes.

i don't watch television for a couple of years now, especially realities. I think at the end of the day is what we decide to see. for example even on tv there are some awesome documentaries going on but mostly nobody is watching them

I get your frustration.
But, please understand that salaries in the free market are determined by the value your effort brings to the guy who buys it.
So, if many people watch this show, the production company will make a profit rendering the salaries you deem "high" as reasonable or even cheap.

yeah as i state i don't blame the production companies. these are businesses that want some profit so that's what they care at the end of the day. I blame us that we watch this kind of craps and uplifting people that are basically trash.

That's why I don't watch TV anymore, on top of that I can't stand all the advertisements too. I do miss the local news but can get that in the newspaper.
