The stage is set for a new season of “Luxusfallen”, both here in the country and in Denmark.
On Tuesday, it’s time to broadcast the second episode of the Danish version of the popular show, which can be watched in Norwegian Viaplay.
In the episode, viewers learned about Tabita, who has 15 loans and 11 creditors.
Tabita, who works as an unskilled gardener, was unable to pay child support, the Danish tabloid reported. Extra magazine.
The reason is that her money goes to nails, cigarettes and plants.
Nails mean something to me
In total, Tapita has debts of more than 500,000 Danish kroner, or more than 760,000 kroner at today’s exchange rate.
Every month she pays approximately 11,000 Danish kroner in bad debts, which equates to about 18,000 Norwegian kroner.
According to luxury trap experts Jan Swertz and Kenneth Hansen, she spends 21,600 Danish kroner – or 33,000 Norwegian kroner – a year on nails.
Quit nails and smoking
They ask her to stop doing nail treatments and smoking and get an extra job. Experts believe that in this way it can put the economy back on track.
They set a budget for it and went on their way.
Dealing with our budgets is the easiest thing in the whole world, says economist Hansen, but it turns out that…Don’t be easy on Tabitha.
When the experts brought her back a month later with the TV cameras pulled, Tabitha dropped the bomb.
She didn’t follow a budget at all, but she spent a significant amount of money on her nails.
She has no regrets.
– I’m not sorry that I spent money on nails or on Matas (Danish cosmetics chain, journ.anm.). “Nails mean something to me, so there has to be money for that,” she says in the episode.
Tabitha says she can’t explain why she spends so much money on nail treatments.
– Nails are part of me. “I feel naked without them,” she says.
Can’t do that
After a lot of back and forth, the experts realize they can’t help Tabitha.
-You spent more money than we allocated. It’s been a tough economy. It was pushed so hard that it was difficult to bring it back into balance, Hansen tells Ekstra Bladet.
On the show, the experts conclude that they should just give up.
-Some people have such thick minds that we cannot communicate with them. It’s a shame, says an angry Jan Swertz.
Kenneth Hansen votes in:
– She believes that nails and personal care are more important than creditors. “We are here to help participants, but also to look after the interests of creditors,” says Hansen.
He describes all of this as “unfortunate.”
“We would very much like to succeed, and we did not do that here,” he says.
I couldn’t believe it myself
They say it’s unfortunate Tabitha didn’t do more to get her finances in order.
-You spent more money than we allocated. It’s been a tough economy. It was shaken so badly that it was difficult to bring it back into balance, he says.
– Some people do not understand that the blame, for example, is the car or nails. They believe it can be done. This is not reality.
No time wasted
Although the experts had to give up, they did not feel that they wasted their time.
-We help, one way or another. This is the first step on the way. We provide them with insight into looking at their finances, and an overview. And Hansen says it’s not lost.
Jan Swertz sees it the same way.
– All the guys are watching you. We may have helped them, so they can see what not to do. So, he says, it’s never wasted.
At the end of the episode, it turns out that the matter has ended between her and her boyfriend, Michael.
Tabita told Viplay that she was fine, but neither she nor Michael wanted to talk to the press Photo magazine.
