A simpler life: Amish reality show family discusses new life

Channel 4’s new reality series The Simpler Life will see a group of Britons leave their jobs and homes for a summer cut off from the modern world on a remote Devon farmhouse.

The community trial required contestants to live by Amish principles, rejecting modern values ​​and technology, but some are said to have struggled with outdated lifestyles and rumors of leaving has occurred.

Hazel and Darren took part in the four-month experience and appeared on Steph’s Packed Lunch to chat about the challenge and how it has changed their lives.

When asked by host Steph McGovern about the community element of filming life in rural Devon, Darren laughed when his wife Hazel admitted that she had “struggled” with it.

She said: “We lived in a cottage with another couple and their two children – we had a good laugh because we just bonded right in our little cottage.

“But then it’s up to the community and any decision, you have to go and have these meetings and the whole community has to decide.

“I struggled with the community – no doubt. It’s like asking permission to do things you wouldn’t normally do in your day-to-day life. You just go and buy what you want.”

TV presenter Steph asked: “Does that make you think, I can’t do this?” but Darren insists he was “determined” to see through it.

But this happened because testing was reportedly too much for some of the competitors on the Channel 4 series, with “most” coming out before the expected end date, including a man just only worked eight days.

The mass departures are attributed to cultural conflicts between modern Britons and the Miller family, devout Christians from Ohio, who sent the group to work on a farm. .

A source told Sun : “The whole point of the show is to see how long modern Britons can run without all the bells and whistles of the 21st century.

“The answer is pretty simple: not very well. Almost none of the original 24 made it to the end of the process. Most walked away after getting fed up with the basic way the Amish family wanted to do it.”

The source added: “It’s all about who’s pulling their weight and who’s hiding. It causes a lot of stress.

“There are a lot of cultural differences and obviously a lot of people won’t see it firsthand.

“People with young children struggle the most, as they have been stripped of all creature comforts and fed fairly basic food for weeks on end. They miss their old life the most.”

The Simpler Life begins Tuesday, March 22 on Channel 4 at 9:15pm
