Viewers are divided over rich ladies in Steenrijk, Straatarm

Best friends Ferrah and Christie live in luxury. It’s impossible for the enterprising ladies: a gigantic villa, luxury travel and someone to cook and clean for them. In the latest episode of Rich poor they exchange with the Elisabeth family, who regularly have to knock on the door of the food bank.

In this way, both friends and family can see the other side of the coin.

Ferrah and Christie’s luxurious lifestyle

39-year-old Ferrah, who is Turkish roots owns a luxury holiday villa of almost 2000 square meters in western Turkey. The villa in Izmir is fully equipped: a beautiful view of the coast, three bathrooms, a sauna and a huge living room. There is even a housekeeper available 24/7. Ferrah’s 28-year-old best friend Christie regularly stops by in Turkey.

Both powerhouses head multiple companies in real estate, crypto and coaching and have nothing to complain about financially. The high-heeled friends work hard, but also try to enjoy life as much as possible. “It could just be that we’re in a crazy mood and say: we’re going to Ibiza for a weekend,” says Christie. “Then you really have to think about a weekend of ten thousand at least. It’s nice that we have that freedom and can decide for ourselves what we do. If we see something beautiful, we can just buy it.”

Family in Lelystad makes ends meet

A big contrast to this week’s poor family, the Elisabeth family. The family consists of father Maikel, mother Wienanda and their daughters Latisha, Chady and Shumaila. Maikel and Wienanda work as cleaners and live in a modest tenement in Lelystad. They received most things in the house or bought it via Marktplaats or Facebook. That the family has to manage has not always been the case. Fifteen years ago, disaster struck: the company, which Wienanda had recently taken over from his parents, was hit by a fire. The insurance did not pay out and that heralded the beginning of the financial misery. This has left deep traces. “If you’ve lost everything, eventually you’ll think, ‘Why am I even here?’ But your family is more important.” They are now debt free, but their income is barely high enough to pay the bills, so they have to use the food bank.

The exchange in Steenrijk, Poor

The Elisabeth family has 110 euros a week to spend, Ferrah and Christie 2250 euros a week. So a big difference. Christie says they join because they want to give and share their lifestyle. “I hope people see what’s possible.” The poorer family mainly hopes to have fun.

And so the trading adventure begins. The Elisabeth family cannot believe their eyes when they arrive at the villa in Turkey. “I have the feeling that I am a museum”, Father Maikel exclaims as they walk around the house. The family says several times that it feels like a dream.

Ferrah and Christie are not completely negative at first either: both at their first glance of the neighborhood and the house, they say that it “looks nice”. Later, they are shocked by the decrepit maintenance in the house. “I couldn’t relax here. It hurts my heart a little.” The weekly budget is also tight.

“How do they do this?”

The ladies think it’s quite a reality check. “How do they do this?” Ferrah wonders. “I always put money aside when I earn for myself,” says Christie. “But how are you going to get rid of this?” replies Ferrah. “Still,” says Christie. She believes that the family should invest. “Money makes money.” The two manage the budget as best they can. If the friends go over the budget when shopping, they have to put something back. Still, they manage to get by on the weekly budget. In fact, they are even left with 66 euros, to the surprise of the Elisabeth family.

Ferrah and Christie are excited to go home, but say they’ve “learned a lot and laughed a lot.” Wienanda and Maikel’s family reluctantly pack their bags. They prefer not to go home, although they are looking forward to getting to know each other. As this happens, Ferrah and Christie announce that they want to help the family with their finances. Father Maikel and mother Wienanda do not keep it dry.

Viewers on Twitter were divided over Steenrijk, Straatarm

Despite their generous offer, not everyone is a fan of Ferrah and Christie. There are complaints on Twitter that the ladies would flaunt their money too much. The comment that the family must set aside 10 percent is also not up to some Twitter users. “Oh how lovely. She puts aside 10 percent every month. I guess if these people could have done it, they would have. But it doesn’t work for everyone.”

But there is also respect for the women. “A lot of comments for the two ladies, but they have the balls to pull this off. It’s easy to comment and be jealous when you haven’t accomplished anything yourself,” wrote one person. Another: “I thought both ‘families’ were amazing. I really didn’t think the rich ladies had any hair. They only indicated that they set aside 10 percent themselves. And as coaches offer help to the other family. Top!”

There is also a joke about the walk away from the cabinet after Thierry Baudet’s speech. “The chairman suspends at Rich, penniless to see together.”
