    If tontines are illegal in the States, I wonder how it is they are able to pull this off. ?

    Well first of all I don't think it is going to be like a real Tontine, those tend to have people dying that wouldn't be good for reality tv. Secondly, the race is supposedly on all 7 continents not just in the US.

    Ya, that's right. Looked it up again in the dictionary and you basically leave the tontine when you die. Which means a true tontine is very long term. Also, I don't believe the contestants are contributing anything to the pot. They call it Tontine, but really it isn't. As for the seven continents....I suspect it starts and ends in the US and any papers would likely be signed in the US, so I would think that it would fall under US law....but that's a moot point.

    I don't know about that, I think ratings would be huge if viewers knew someone was going to be offed each week
