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

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
