    Prize Money in The Amazing Race

    I'm wondering...

    We all know that the winning team of The Amazing Race will get $1,000,000. But, how about the rest? The 2nd-11th place?

    I don't think that a "television exposure" is enough.

    Yeah right, being in the race is once in a lifetime experience.....

    However....

    I'm still wondering if CBS did provide some consolation prizes for the non-winning participants of the race. You know, they too have life after the race.


    Anybody have an idea on this matter?

    There is prize money for each eliminated team. If you go the "Things you wanted to know about TAR but was afraid to ask" thread in the Amazing Race forum which is now in the Purgatory, the ATC's answered this question loosely. Its pretty minimal for the first eliminated team and increases for each team eliminated (but not by much) since the ATC's said they weren't much better off than what Debra & Steve got ( I can't remember if the ATC's provided a dollar figure though since I read it awhile back )
    I rather lurk than post.

    Thanks a lot!

    So, are there any press releases on how much will each team get?

    Just wanted to know the details!!!

    By the way, how many 'holiday trips' did Christie Woods and Colin Goulin have won? You know guys, It's really amazing that they are leading the race....

    Christie and Colin rocks! They are my favorite team....

    I don't think that TPTB have ever announced the prize list for TAR, and I kinda doubt they ever will. I know we're not supposed to talk about it. The only thing I can say for sure is that I'm pretty sure Chris and Amanda had used up both the $1 off a large pizza coupons from Pizza Hut that they got, and my "Buy One Whopper, Get One Free" coupons are long since history.

    Did you eat both Whoppers yourself, or did you give Steve one too? Mmmmmmm, flame-broiled tastiness, mmmmmmm!

    Thanks, TAR4 ATC Dave and TAR4 ATCSteve!
