CONTRARY TO WHAT IS STATED IN THE IMAGE BELOW FROM VIAPLAY AND TV3, METRONOME AND ENDEMOL SHINE'S SWEDISH COMPANY METER TELEVISION DID NOT CREATE LUXURY TRAP, LUKSUSFÆLDEN, LYXFALLAN, OR LUKSUSFELLEN. VIEWERS ARE BEING MISINFORMED.
LUXURY TRAP original TV show format was submitted by an email of 15 February 2006 to Danish TV3's Head of programming Karoline Briand Spodsberg, and also by email as well as during a pitch meeting with Metronome's Head of programming Jan Lagermand Lundme, and further discussed with Jock Millgårdh, co-founder of Swedish format company Friday TV, a Metronome Group and Endemol Shine company.
After the pitch meeting Metronome and Jan Lagermand Lundme confirmed by email in 2006 that it is Friday TV that is BUMP's contact regarding all the TV formats which BUMP submitted as program proposals to the Metronome Group.
In April 2006 Friday TV, TV3, and Metronome decided to exploit the format and began development and pre-production, production started in May 2006, filming in August 2006, and the program was aired the first time on TV3 Sweden on November 1st, 2006, with the translated Swedish title Lyxfällan. In 2008 the program was aired on TV3 Denmark, Luksusfælden, and on TV3 Norway, Luksusfellen.

Luxury Trap has currently been aired for twenty-eight seasons in Sweden, twenty-five seasons in Denmark, and twenty-two seasons in Norway.
There was a time when Danes used to save up money so they could afford something new. It is no longer the case. Today we want it all in half the time - even young people have expensive furniture, designer clothes, cars and latest technology. In other words, Danes borrow money like never before, the debt on credit cards, consumer loans, overdrafts, etc skyrocketing. It may take a long time to settle climbing debt. In Luxury Trap selected participants have the opportunity to get rid of their debt in just one evening - and get some good advice along the way so they do not wind up in a similar situation. The program is aimed primarily at an audience between 18 and 40 years old, who are still in their "establishment phase" and therefore tempted to borrow money for greater and lesser consumption.
Key Details from the original draft:
"Debt due to over-spending", "Participant tells the host how much they owe and why", "Promissory note (power of attorney)", "Blackboard with amounts and categories", "Material things", "Earned money is used to repay the debt "," Financial Advisors ", "Promissory Note or Power of attorney torn to pieces " ...
