Morgan Spurlock burst onto the scene with his innovative Oscar®-nominated documentary Super Size Me, in which he chronicled every detail of his monthlong McDonald's diet. He is also the mastermind behind the F/X show 30 Days, in which he challenges people to experience life outside of their comfort zone for a month. In one experiment, Morgan and his fiancée, Alex, left their home in New York and tried to survive for one month in Columbus, Ohio, living on minimum wage.

They agreed on three ground rules for their experiment: They had to earn minimum wage, they could start with only one week's pay in cash, and they had to freeze their credit cards.
