Following on the heels of Australia’s “The Nest” reality show, Spanish television channel La Sexta is looking for families to participate in a new reality show where adult children who live at home are nudged out to live in a shared flat.
The show may be inspired by troubling new statistics from a recent survey in Spain:
- Up to a quarter of Spanish young adults (under 35) who have left home in the past two years have already boomeranged home or are planning to do so soon.
- Nearly 60 per cent of Spanish young adults aged 18 to 34 still live with their parents.
- More than 25% of Spanish kids stay at home into their 30s.
