The first long-form original show from Tastemade, 'Basic Versus Baller: Travel at Any Cost' is set to launch exclusively on TastemadeTV, the company’s new 24-hour linear channel on YouTubeTV. The show follows Marko and Alex Ayling -- known online as the Vagabrothers -- around the globe across 10 episodes, with episode 1 shot in Hong Kong, China, premiering on October 26, 2018.
Following the premiere, it will air weekly on Thursdays through early January 2019 and will be supported by over 100 social assets to be distributed on Tastemade’s global social channels.
The show is set to follow the YouTube sensations around the globe as they take their chances at experiencing different cities in either lavish luxury or on a backpacker’s budget. The brothers will put their trivia skills to the test to determine who experiences 24 hours in a new city on a shoestring budget, and who gets to live it up like a baller. From Switzerland to Hong Kong, let's see how they fare!
