Sick Reality TV

A "professional gambler" from London has sold everything he owns, including his clothes, and will risk it all on one spin of the roulette wheel. Sky TV will carry his spin on live television Sunday night.

Catchy story, but something smells bad here. Sky says they will follow and film him for a month afterwards, win or lose. For a "documentary", no less. So which documentary would you rather see? 30 days of the broke loser, or 30 days of the slightly bettter off loser? Must be "sweeps week".
