Actor and comedian Tom Rosenthal is a solo-living, daily-Deliverooing, Uber-to-everywhereing, screen-addicted, community-contact-avoidant hermit of a man. He frequently gets told he doesn’t live in the real world. So he’s going to start trying.
The challenge
Get around the world without paying for travel
The rules
1. Anyone who helps him on a leg of his journey will be repaid with a favour considered by both parties to be of equal value.
2. All favours must be completed before the trip’s end.
3. 80 favours must be completed.
4. No plane journeys longer than 7 hours.
5. No repeat favours.
6. In the event of a kidnap the challenge shall be considered null and void.
7. No sexual favours. Why is everyone asking about sexual favours?
