‘Poverty is no laughing matter’
The family receives 1000 euros for the furnishing of their house and has to make do with an old car full of dents. There is hardly any money for wine, and that is of course a major disaster for the Meilandjes. Although it is quite hard for the family, the first images already show that the family is smiling a lot. And that is not appreciated by the public. “Poverty is no laughing matter,” it read on Twitter.
After a month, the Meilandjes return to their expensive houses and expensive cars. But that’s not all, because of course the family gets paid per episode. Although they normally earn 50,000 euros per episode with their reality series Chateau Meiland, the amount is now slightly lower, according to insiders. The family would rake in 35,000 euros per episode of Chateau Bijstand, KnownBuren reports.
