FOX REALITY CHANNEL PRESENTS A MARATHON OF "THE NEXT AMAZING ADVENTURES OF A NOBODY"

Leon Logothetis Backpacks From Paris to Moscow Surviving On Only Five Euros a Day During His New Adventure Premiering Sunday, January 25 at 1p ET/10a PT

LOS ANGELES, CA � Tough economy got you down? No vacation in sight? Fox Reality Channel will show viewers how one man, Leon Logothetis, has traveled to some of Europe's most desirable destinations, spending only five Euros a day with "The Next Amazing Adventures of a Nobody." The all-new season debuts in its entirety with a marathon on Sunday, January 25th at 1p ET/10a PT.

"The 'Nobody' series has been a huge hit with viewers, because they feel as if they're making the trek with Leon," said Bob Boden, SVP, Programming, Production & Development, Fox Reality Channel. "Given the current state of our economy, watching Leon stretch five Euros a day will inspire people to be open to the possibilities of creating their own adventure in the New Year."

From Paris, the city of lights, to Moscow's Red Square, Englishman Leon must use his urban-survival expertise to travel, eat and lodge, using less cash than many Americans spend on a lunch. Leon cannot accept money from anyone and must rely on the gracious assistance of the colorful characters he encounters along the way to his final destination, Moscow.

Hot on the heels of the "Next Amazing Adventures of a Nobody" premiere, Leon will set out on a charity-centered adventure starting Jan 27, 2009. He will be tasked with traveling 500 miles in five days on a $5 daily budget in a bid to reach Tampa in time for the Super Bowl on Jan 31st. In Tampa, he will attempt to secure a ticket to the big game with his meager finances. He will then reward the stranger who helped him most generously during his trek with two invites to an exclusive Super Bowl party.

In the week preceding the Super Bowl journey, Leon will also demonstrate that any 'Nobody' can make a difference in their community by performing charitable deeds. His acts of charity will take him from Los Angeles to Atlanta by road with stops in cities including Phoenix; Dallas; Monroe, La; and Birmingham, Ala.

The "Amazing Adventures" series is produced by Shankly Productions.
