They're both kind and caring girls who love their family's and their lives so much."

First Season ComplicationsEdit
Despite the fact that the first season appeared to be in good shape, complications rose from start to finnish. During the first episode the girls drove off in a car, before they reached McDonalds they were pulled over for speeding. The producers took the fine they were given and paid it off straight away. In the episode which features a rich family in a mansion, the viewers see that Dina is upset about the similarities towards the rich family and the Goth family that lived near her (which she was suspected of breaking the family up). Dina believed that the producers did this on purpose and threatened to quite the show half way through.
More complications rose when Nina became very ill during the filming for the Gym episode. She was taken to a hospital near the Gym and was told that she could no longer take part in the show for a while. Which is why the second episode features scene's from mostly Dina rather than Nina.
In the first season, Dina and Nina gave up their phones, credit cards and make-up for the life on the "move". They were told to do certain jobs in order to pay the bills for their own apartment.
During this season, the girls went to work at certain business' in the Bluewater Village district. They worked at a Gym, Cinema, Cheque desk and more. During their time working, they didn't give 100% on their jobs which lead to confrontations from their Manager's. During their time at the gym, Dina got into a confrontation with the manager and was made to leave the building. Nina also got into an argument with a rich family's wife.
The first episode aired on Youtube on the 20th March 2009 and recieved 229 views from viewers. Throughout the first season the show received good reviews and was highly rated. The first season is set to be released on DVD in September.
