    Runner up cash?

    Do the runner ups get a cash prize? How does that work?

    I think there was a thread for this already, but second place gets $50,000, third place gets $25,000, and I think Andre/Damon said they got $17,000 (although I might be wrong on that) for finishing in sixth place.

    $50k and $25k isn't a lot when you're splitting it up between 2 people AND you get a lot of it taken out from taxes. Survivor pays better.

    Anyway with that $50k Colin must've been able to afford a nice ring for Christie.

    expenses

    You have to also take into account the amount it would cost for teams to travel last minute. A couple of weeks ago, I was just for the heck of it, looking up the cost of an immediate flight from New Zeland to the Phillipines and that for one person cost at the least: $1300....So I think that may be why prize money gets reduced versus shows like survivor, where you fly to a location and rot on an island for about 6 weeks.

    The network pays for all the flights and I'm sure they can afford it...I remember that scripted shows cost something like 4 million per eppy to flim not including what you pay the actors. NBC paided 14 million per eppy of Friends' last year, including the salary for the cast. So I'm sure CBS is just fine

    and I'm very happy that most of them got some money, how nice, I didn't know the runner-ups got money too

    FWIW, 2nd-11th (or 12th) places do get some money, although the figures previously reported are incorrect.
