New Spanish reality show to get adult children to leave home

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.
