Rich House, Poor House: Viewers were hoping for romance on top of budgeting drama

3 mins read

On Channel 5’s Rich House, Poor House, four Londoners swapped their houses, budgets and lives. Single mum Dominique had five jobs and studied on top of taking care of her 12 years old daughter Taejah.

Dominque did microblading, worked at a pawn broker shop, delivered takeaways for an Indian restaurant, did shifts as a receptionist for a childcare centre, and had a side hustle of buying consumer goods and reselling them online.

Daughter Taejah said: “My mum is definitely a super mum. She’s magic.”

On Twitter, Georgia Bowring said: “Any single parent who works 5 different jobs deserves a medal!”

On the other side of the wealth gap was millionaire entrepreneur Leonard and his cousin Brian.

The online entrepreneur had content and mentoring businesses.

Swapping lives proves difficult, with millionaire Leonard proving more thrifty than his cousin when it came to the weekly shop.

However, viewers were left annoyed at the choice of shop.

Georgia Bowring said: “When they go out for food shopping, why do you never see any of them go to a supermarket? They always go to little corner shops!?”


User joisnotgrey agreed and wrote: “Why do they all use corner shops? Could have got at least five decent meals for two people for £10 at a supermarket.”

Philippa McLeod also asked: “Why not go to major supermarkets?”

Dominique also struggled with the prices at the organic shop.

She had a hard time handing over five pounds for a loaf of bread.

Viewers, however, were hoping for more.

User Leanne wrote: “Is it just me who wants Leonard and Dominique to get together?”

And Lisa Kelly agreed, saying: “I was hoping there would be some romance between Dominique and Leonard.”

Charlie, meanwhile, wrote: “I think Leonard and Dominique had chemistry They should definitely date!”
