$1,700 Apartment Vs. $40,000 Apartment

  • Published on Sep 17, 2017
  • "Babe. I got this spot."
    In Worth It: Lifestyle Season 2, a spin off of BuzzFeed’s hit series Worth It, host Steven Lim and his buddies embark on a new adventure, setting out to try different experiences at three different price points: affordable, middle tier, and luxury--from airplane seats to cars to videos games. At the end of the episode, the gang decides which experience is the most “worth it” at its given price.

    I hate the expensive apartments. They're pretentious and have no character. I'd prefer a bigger version of the "cheap" apartment. Go times 3 on square footage and it's perfect.

      It depends where you are and what the person prefers.
      The US doesn't collectively drink or don't drink tap water. My mom hates the tap water here but her boyfriend constantly mixes his Gatorade with tap water. Some cities have water with more lime in it.

    People who rent at $40K dont care how much the rent is. Money like that is trivial to them. It is like people who get Starbucks everyday twice a day while someone complains coffee is expensive and thinks $1 McDs coffee is a once a monthly splurge. People like that already own a huge mansion with acres of land somewhere else. and multiple homes around the world and lots of fancy cars. I look at it and think oh cool. I dont care about the price cuz I cant afford it. I know there are cheap places everywhere and youll always find someone who will say I can get a house for $1000/month in Dallas and then find someone who say I can find a $600 house in New Orleans and then someone says I can get a $200 house in Yuma. and then someone says I can get a $49.99 a month house in Flint with free water.
