Added DiffLines:

* GreedyJew: Inverted. While the American/British opening song is about [[http://www.metrolyrics.com/opportunities-lets-make-lots-of-money-lyrics-pet-shop-boys.html getting lots of money]], the Israeli version is about two people working up the courage to come together from different worlds. Although one of the contestants on the second season was ridiculously stingy for no apparent reason, partially playing straight the AllJewsAreCheapskates trope.
