Amazing Adventures of a Nobody is a reality-travel entertainment TV series that follows Leon Logothetis, the presenter and creator, on his travels around the U.K. on just 5 pounds a day. The 5 pounds have to cover food, accommodation and travel; the 5 pounds reflecting an average hourly wage, according to the Department of Trade and Industry in the U.K.. Leon had certain cities he had to pass through and was only ever allowed to stay for 24 hours in each city. The 5 pounds could not roll over and had to be spent. He was presented a new five pound note for each new day. The public could buy him things and he could work for goods, but was never allowed to be given money directly.
Amazing Adventures of a Nobody is also the title of Leon Logothetis' non-fiction book, scheduled to be released 15 October 2011 on Amazon. The book, inspired by his journeys, offers a deeper and more intimate look at Leon's personal evolution throughout his travels. Author Brad Klontz has referred to it as "More than a titillating travelogue, [the book] is a sojourn into the psyche of America."
