TLC is known for their hit shows, including Extreme Couponing, which just ended the season, and they are hoping to expand the extreme even more. This time, TLC takes extreme to it’s extreme in an all new series, Extreme Cheapskates. Intrigued? So were we, and we have a sneak peek for you as well. Read on to learn more!
In a press release yesterday, TLC announced that they have ordered a new series:
Extreme Cheapskates, continuing the network’s exploration of people who go to remarkable lengths to save money for themselves and their families. Eight half-hour episodes have been ordered, and is currently casting individuals who look for creative ways to cut costs by any means necessary. It is expected to air later this summer.
Extreme Cheapskates premiered as a one-hour special on December 28, and was watched by 1.6 million people, and became a top trending topic on Twitter. In the special, four individuals were profiled, each of whom stopped at nothing to spend nothing – including eating food destined for the trash and even reusing toilet wipes.
Here is a sneak peek of all the action for you, courtesy of TLC:
