A group of eight 18 to 20-year-olds who have been waited on hand and foot all their whole lives are thrust into the adult world of responsibility. They must live together in a house and fend for themselves, live on a basic weekly budget and take part in tough work challenges.
Their parents watch exactly what their kids have been up to, and the one they judge the most useless is sent packing. Ultimately only one will win the prize of a round-the-world trip, as well as earning their parents' pride.
Ruby-Jo, Sophie, Jack, Gracie, Ryan, Jade, Tom and Enzo are completely out of their comfort zone when they suddenly find themselves working long hours as cleaners, kitchen staff and tour guides at one of London's busiest youth hostels. There are strong words when a drunken party gets out of hand and Sophie expresses an opinion that the others don't like. The group struggles to cope with the responsibility of work, looking after a home and living with others just like them.
