160 kilometers north of Rio de Janeiro … in the city of Juiz de Fora, you will find a maximum-security prison called – Arisvaldo de Campos Pires.

In 2009 … Raquel Guimaraes (a fashion designer) was having difficulty finding people to crochet and knit her hand-made designs.

She approached the prison’s officials with an interesting proposal; to be allowed to train 18 prisoners (convicted of crimes including robbery and murder) how to crochet and knit for her clothing line.

The program, named the “Lotus Flower” allows prisoners to earn a wage and master a new skill.

And, not only do prisoners earn 75% of the minimum wage … but they also have one day deducted from their sentence … for every three days worked!

THE ‘SHEEP FEET’ ROLE (OTE: $63,250)

SheepFeet.jpg

As the story goes, the world’s first restaurant opened in Paris, in 1765.
Mr. Boulanger … (a soup salesman, turned tavern keeper) opened its doors with a single-item on the menu – sheep’s feet simmered in white sauce!

Unlike other food-type businesses operating at the time, such as taverns (alcohol) and cafes (coffee) … his business focused on food. Naturally, the idea of ‘going out to eat’ was a foreign notion – as people had always eaten meals at home.

Here’s the real interesting part; Boulanger claimed his special dish would restore people’s health.
And … it just so happens, the French word for restore is, restaurer.
You can thank us later … but, now you know how the word ‘restaurant’ came to be!

By the way … a local food union sued Boulanger for infringing on their right to sell cooked food. The union ended up losing their case … and the years that followed saw restaurants pop up … all across the country.

THE ‘MONEY BOX’ ROLE ($45,000)

moneyboxrole

Victor Lustig was born January 4, 1890 in Hostinné, Austria-Hungary (present day Czech Republic). Lustig was an extremely skilled con-man and is infamous for being “the man who sold the Eiffel Tower – twice”!

He’s also known for originating the “Rumanian Box” scam – aka the Money Box.

Lustig would approach an individual with a ‘machine’ he claimed could duplicate any currency placed inside it. The ‘machine’ was a specially designed mahogany box with two small slots and a number of levers and mechanisms that had to be carefully maneuvered to produce the duplicate currency.

To convince the person the Money Box truly worked, Lustig asked them for a $100 bill.
He would insert the bill into his device, and explain that the machine would take 6 hours to create the copy.

When the 6 hours had passed … Lustig would reach into the machine and magically produce a perfect ‘counterfeit’ bill (which was in fact, a real $100 bill he had pre-loaded)!

Lustig would then accompany the individual to a bank to authenticate the note.
Once the person was whipped into a frenzy (thinking they’d struck it rich) … Lustig would sell them the box for thousands and thousands of dollars.

Before delivering the machine … Lustig would pack the Money Box with 4 real $100 bills … which would provide him with 24 hours to get out of town … before the individual realized they’d been conned.

What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?
Absolutely nothing!
