Increased prize money?
« on: August 19, 2012, 11:33:35 PM »
The Amazing Race is more about the experience than the prize money, but since the next US edition now has a $2 million prize, do you think there will be a prize increase for the Australian version soon?

I think $250,000 is reasonable, but I wouldn't mind half a million.
I wouldn't be surprised if it raises to $500,000 by Season 5

I hope they increase it for the season that I apply to... :lol:
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

$250,000 is especially reasonable when you count that:
a) Practically all other Reality TV shows in Australia offer the same prize money
b) NO TAXES!  :conf:

Yes! I think that's the reason why we're all happy with $250,000! But I definitely think it will increase someday soon  ;)

Wow, I didn't realise it was tax-free before now! :o Now I think that's probably fair enough! :tup:

I think some season of AU BB had a prize of a millon but other than that most shows do only offer $100,000 to 1/4 millon in Australia.

Since the subject of taxes came up, how much of the million do American winners actually get on average? Taxing winnings from a show seems ridiculous, doesn't happen in Canada.

I don't know, after $2 million dollars gets taxed, you might get left with $2 if you're lucky.
