The Simple Life is a reality TV series that follows wealthy heiresses Paris Hilton and Nichole Richie as they journey from having everything handed to being in the working class. The riches to rags show puts Paris and Nichol in different situations where they must overcome everyday obstacles that are completely new to them. Their raunchy behavior and inability to perform what some would describe as the simple of tasks creates a style of natural humor embedded into the show. The first season, which aired in 2003, features Paris and Nichol traveling to a farm in Altus, Arkansas where they are told they must help around the farm and find jobs. The duo, who have never worked a day in their lives, learn that everything in life needs to be earned as they take on various jobs and are quickly fired from each one. While the focus of the show is primarily their working ability, Paris and Nichol have a hard time adjusting to the new set of rules they are given. Sneaking out late at night, dating local boys, and cleaning up the messes that they make quickly become issues. Altus is a small, quiet town in comparison to New York City and the girls ruffle the feathers of many of the locals as they try to earn their keep. While the show was only designed to air a single season, it was renewed four times, each season providing a different twist, including road trips, internships, caring for families, and camping. Every season puts the popular princesses in a situation they are unaccustomed to, following their mistakes and triumphs as they find their way through in a comedic fashion.
