"I could rent this place out for 250,000 francs ($500) a month, but I prefer to keep Billal and my sheep here," says Ndiaye, 60, sporting a royal blue boubou as he strokes the head of the sheep he hopes will become a reality television star.

Some context: I just got back from Peace Corps Senegal. Our per diem for Dakar was 7,000 CFA ($14)/day, but that was really just a luxury that gave us beer money; we only needed 1500-2000 CFA tops. And anywhere else in the country, 500 CFA would be more than enough. Lots of locals spend
So what this guy is saying is he spends a year's income or more for a villager each month to keep his sheep happy. That's like someone in the US spending maybe $25,000 a month on on their cats. It's insane.

Also:

Ndiaye jokes that his wife is jealous of his sheep.

Giggity?

LOTS OF LOCALS SPEND LESS THAN 150 CFA ($3) PER DAY, AND ARE COMFORTABLE.

Hell no, this is one of those seminal moments in human evolution. The level of outrage and disgust for the show and the network it's on may be the thing that saves TV from becoming Ow My Balls.

There is nothing that can possibly save TV from becoming "Ow, My Balls!".
