Rising jobless numbers…

Rising jobless numbers are pushing a growing number of Greeks into participating on reality television shows in a bid to solve their financial problems, according to local press reports. With some programs offering the winner a prize of 200,000 euros, applications for participation have increased by as much as 100 percent over last year’s levels. Much of the interest comes from well-educated middle-class people who are struggling in the recession, reports added.
