That sucks.

In Australia (as with most countries), you get 100% of the winnings.

Our prizemoney is so little by comparison, if it was taxed it would be absurd!! :cmaslol
Cause you said you'd never let me go, and I said I can but now we know
That it's too hard to say three words, too hard to make it work
When there's nothing left to talk about, cause you know the flame is running out
Two hearts are left to burn... do you know, we're only left with smoke

Same as The Amazing Race, the second placer gets 100k as well. :) (whether it has changed or not I do not know)



That is NOT correct....  wish it was true!

Also, is it true that the 1 million prize is not really given in cold cash (assuming its given without tax implication, but of course it has) i mean that the winner needs to wait for some time for his prize to be one million, or he/she has the option to just receive the "present value" of the million dollar prize?

They are given a check for the amount...

Didn't the Bransen get 100k? Wasn't there an interview where Rob Mariano revealed his prize money for TAR 7 was 100k? -_- Or did I remember wrongly? Was pretty sure with the 100k prize money for Bransens though!! :cmas18

Here in the Philippines, prizes and winnings have a final withholding tax of 20%. So for gameshow winners, if they won the grand prize of 1M pesos, they just ended up with P800,000.   :cmas27

Another question, can HIIs be played if there's a re-vote?

Nope, they must be played the first time votes are cast - after that, if they have a HII and there's a revote, they have to keep it in their bag :)

Yeah, was going to ask the same thing. Marty (S:Nicaragua) had a HII and was on a 3-3-2 tie. A re-vote was made, but he did nothing to try to be saved, so I assume he just could not use it.
