Plot Synopsis

LIFE OR DEBT is a one-hour reality series that follows former Fortune 500 business strategist Victor Antonio as he knocks on the doors of families on the verge of financial ruin -- and gives them a much needed wakeup call. Antonio helps these families face the facts and the bleak future that awaits them if they continue down this path, but also pinpoints the underlying issues and ultimately supplies the tools needed to empower them to get back in the black. Antonio believes family finances should be run like a business and that by streamlining operations, identifying hard line goals and executing reasonable action plans, families can avoid financial ruin. He has four days to help each family face the facts of its financial fallout. In the season opener, "Mo Meatballs Mo Problems," a failing meatball maker and his plastic surgery addicted wife are overspending and drowning their family in debt.
On Sunday, May 22, 2016 at 10pm ET/PT, Spike premiered the season finale of LIFE OR DEBT. In the season ender, "Downward-Facing Debt," two Baltimore yoga teachers lose their Zen trying to figure out how to afford college for their four kids. Can Victor bring a higher financial learning to this not so peaceful couple?
