Never one to turn down an adventure, Survivor winner Adam Klein and reality TV junkie Matthew Forsythe gamble on a worldwide vacation in The Coin Flip Trip.
Adam Klein has had an eventful time after competing in Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X, complete with ups and downs. He shared the heartwrenching story of losing his mother hours after coming back home at his season’s finale and has been a champion for lung cancer awareness and research ever since.
He’s also had an adventurous journey in the poker world this past year, teaming up with the Bill Perkins’ Thirst Lounge 10 crew in live streaming and producing a bunch of online video poker content. Many of the other content creators and poker players in the house appreciate or starred in reality television, and their latest gambit is an outlet for their mixture of reality TV and gambling.
Adam Klein and Matt Forsythe will test their social abilities in a traveling reality show made for YouTube with The Coin Flip Trip, as the first episode airs on Wednesday, December 4. You can see the trailer below, teeing up a series where each day of their worldwide trip sees a coin flip where they must either spend $25 per day in a meager lifestyle or live like kings on $500 per day.
Bill Perkins is the eccentric millionaire of the poker world, especially when it comes to prop betting. By having Adam and Matt gamble away their livelihoods on each stop of the journey, they’ll need to rely on their ability to get strangers to help them out while stretching out their dollars. On the flip side, it will be interesting to see the more lavish side of things when they do get lucky.
Most importantly, it’s another opportunity to see Adam Klein do non-Survivor things within a semi-reality-TV aspect. Sure, it would be nice to see him compete in the show once again, but this is a chance to see him on another adventure where his experience starving on an island can come in play when playing with destitute levels of money to spend.
