I think the series did the opposite of what it set out to do.. I mean the "peasants" did come off as more stupid, selfish, prejudiced, rude and generally dislikeable than the "upperclass" girls...I doubt that's what the programme makers had intended really...|
Also, why did they make the rich girls work whilst in Peckham? From what I remember, their "peckham sisters" didn't work (bar the dance teacher), and the narrator keeps on mentioning the extremely high unemployment rate in the area, so why make the rich girls work? I thought they were supposed to be getting a realistic experience of what peckham life is like? So in general that wouldn't have been cleaning toilets, it would have been watching Jeremy Kyle and doing not much else...
Edit - Also, I don't really like the 'tone' of the show, it basically seems as if they're trying to take the piss out of wealthy people just for the sake of it, I doubt they'd do it the other way around and send a peckham girl to the cotswolds (or wherever) for the rich people to take the piss out of the way they talk/dress/live, etc, no because that would be "un-PC" , innit blud.
