A young multimillionaire who was homeless helps a London family after swapping homes with them at Rich House, Poor House.

Australian entrepreneur Harry Saunders, 24, owns several properties around the world, including a three-bedroom flat in Shoreditch thanks to his SEO business, worth £12 million.

The internet connoisseur now has a disposable income of nearly £6,000 a month, and says he made his living from hard transplantation after being homeless at age 17 and forced to work his way off the streets.

It made him particularly sensitive to the story of Angel Blanco Lista, the father of two, who shares a one-bedroom apartment in Notting Hill Gate with his wife Santana and their four-year-old son and two-year-old daughter.

With £9,000 in debt, the couple live on money, Angel works shifts in a shop in Leylands and benefits from government benefits – leaving just £66 in income a week to feed their family.

The devoted father had to sleep on the floor so that he could sleep in the same room as his family. “It’s going to be a bit of a nightmare to be honest,” he told the show.

A stay at home mom who takes care of the kids, Santana also dreams of developing her own skincare business after coming up with products during the lockdown.

The couple said they have £9,000 in debt and rely on Universal Credit for help to supplement Angel’s salary.

The busy father of two had tried to start his own digital marketing company a few years earlier but couldn’t make a living and eventually had to give up to feed his family.

“When I get home, I’m just so exhausted, I don’t have the energy or the time to invest in the business I actually want to start in,” he said.

“We just need that support, we need someone to push us, to be there for us, someone who’s already been there,” Santana said.

Viewers were moved by last night’s Channel 5 show and praised Harry for his commitment to help Angel achieve his goals.

Angel, who had his sights set on a digital marketing career, was moved to tears when Harry offered to pay him £150 for several work assignments per month to help Angel and Santana change their family's fortunes.

Angel, who had his sights set on a digital marketing career, was moved to tears when Harry offered to pay him £150 for several work assignments per month to help Angel and Santana change their family’s fortunes.

Harry said he wanted to give Angel a chance to improve his family’s finances because he had been given the opportunity to start his own business when someone took a chance on him.

The 24-year-old CEO founded his company after a businessman decided to fund an idea he presented at a business meeting at the age of 17.

Knowing that Angel had digital marketing skills but needed the extra money his job in Leylands provided to feed his family, Harry gave him a brief SEO content role at his company.

These instructions help SEO analysts create content for specific clients. Harry promised to pay Angel £150 for each assignment he completed, and said he could arrange for Angel to receive a number of notes a month to earn the extra money.

“I’m blessed to have given you the opportunity to help your family,” Harry told the father of two.

The CEO also promised to help Santana, who was struggling to market the website of a skincare product company she had started from scratch.

“No matter where I am in the world, I’ll be around to guide you and help you make this work,” he told the couple.

Angel and Santana were both moved to tears by Harry’s generosity and said he had gone “above and beyond.”

Harry promised to pay Angel £150 for every SEO job he would complete, saying he could get Angel several jobs a month to earn the extra money

“To be able to make such a big impact in their lives with such a small gesture is… I think it’s very beautiful,” Harry said.

Santana said they were very grateful for the great opportunity Harry gave them, and said it would help “open doors” for their business ideas.

Meanwhile, Harry said swapping lives with Angel and Santana brought him back to his roots and reminded him of the difficult years he went through before he found his success.

Viewers learned during the show that the company’s CEO had offices in Melbourne, Brisbane, London and soon the US.

And although he only spends two to three months a year in London, he decided to invest in a three-room apartment in central London, which he shares with his best friend Hadia, a Qatari heiress trying to penetrate the British film industry.

After having some family problems at age 17, Harry found himself homeless and sitting on the couch before finally ending up on the street.

“I had no money, literally nothing,” he told the show.

“This experience has shaped me. It’s probably the reason I’m successful, because I’ve been through some kind of hardship, I had to build that resilience, I had no other choice or any other option,” he said.

He added that he couldn’t believe he had gone from homeless to a multimillionaire in just seven years at the age of 24.

And the CEO also teamed up with a homeless charity to give back and help other young people get off the streets.

‘I work with the Lighthouse Foundation. They do a lot of work with at-risk youth and homeless children are off the streets, which is of course close to my heart,” he said.

When he’s not working, Harry and his roommate Hadia, who was on the program with him, revealed that they liked to “get out of their comfort zone” and do adrenaline-filled activities.

“I love anything about height because even though I’m scared, it invites me out of that comfort zone, which is one of the things I attribute to my success,” Harry said.

Both families switched lives, schedules and budgets for a week to see how the other half lived.

Angel and Santana admitted they felt ‘overwhelmed’ after learning that Harry had a disposable income of £1,370 a week.

“My brain is currently working overtime trying to figure out how we’re going to spend that money,” Angel joked.

“It was really shocking and really surreal to have so much money in my hand,” he later said.

On the other side of London, however, Harry and Hadia were shocked to find that the Blanco Lista lived on just £66 a week and all shared a room.

The next day, Harry put himself in Angel’s shoes and went to work in his Leyland squad, where he realized the father of two was doing grueling work.

Meanwhile, Angel and Santana met Anthony, who ran Harry’s London office and told them more about how the CEO came up with his company.

The next day, Anthony interviewed Angel for Harry to gauge his digital skills, as the CEO realized he might be able to use his won company to help Angel move forward.

Angel and Santana also revealed that they used the week’s leftover money to replace their old wedding rings, which they had lost. Watching last night’s episode, viewers praised Harry’s good character.

“I liked both pairs tonight. The ‘poor’ couple really work hard and earn good things and the ‘rich’ couple wanted to help and never pretended to be better than anyone else,” said one.

“That man was devastated, he gave them a great chance at a better life,” wrote another.

‘Love this show. The rich people were brought down, if only for a week, and the poor really got a chance at life,” said one of them.
