Inside, United Kingdom, YouTube (The Sidemen)

Pitch:  British reality competition by YouTube group “The Sidemen” in which ten social media stars and celebrities live with each other in a house with the bare minimum. For seven days, they try to win challenges to earn comforts and money. If the group wins the challenges, money is added to the communal prize pool, which begins at £1 million, but if they fail, they risk seeing their prize pool dwindle. By “buying” luxury home comforts such as hot showers and snacks, the contestants take even more money away from the ultimate prize.

Social media buzz:  From June 2 to 25, the first episode has gathered more than 13 million views in total and more than 16,000 comments. All 7 episodes reached at least 5 million views and the finale has gathered more than 6.6 million views (from June 9 to 25). The Sidemen’s YouTube channel has 21,3 million subscribers.
