    Hello. Can someone translate this phrase "(somebody) has/have nothing to lose by doing _____" in Chinese please? Context: I was talking to someone, and I mentioned that I already had a job. However, I got a new job interview, and I was wondering whether I should go. He said that I should, noting that "you have nothing to lose by going to that interview".

    I looked up "have nothing to lose" in google and it said: "be in a situation that is so bad that even if an action or undertaking is unsuccessful, it cannot make it any worse", which does not fit into what we were talking about. Can someone help me please, thanks.

    My colloquial versions:
    你也不亏
    又没坏处
    只有好处没有坏处
    又少不了你什么
