    Technically you didn't win the challenge because you bought things that were more than a dollar all together but only ate a portion of them which a person who only had one dollar wouldn't be able to do

    buy a pack of flour, small pack sugar. flour mix with sugar and tapwater to make pancakes or cookies. In the end you need vitamines, so its best to grow tangerines and tomatoes at home.

    U could easily spend less than half of a dollar in India and eat soo much that u would have 3 complete meals and still have enough money to spare! But still many unfortunate people can't spend even close to half of a dollar!! 😥😥😢
    I really think all TheXvidrs should do this challenge to understand the value of money!!

    Why do you always cheat these US$1 challenges ? If you are unable to do them, just don’t. You didn’t spend only US$1, it doesn’t matter that you didn’t eat everything, you spent more than US$5, weren’t you talking about how people don’t even have US$1 for the whole day ? So how would they come up with US$5 if they don’t even have US$1 ? That’s not a fair play.

      I think the point was that people living in poverty aren’t actually given $1 a day some days they might have $5 and others $0 but they only eat $1 portions of food a day and save the rest.
