    I don't even like it when Mr. Marleybone drinks out of my glass. I would never make it.

    Remember you don't get $50,000. There is taxes. You would receive about 35,000. Split that 2 ways ....$15,000. Now would you still eat the things as a couple? I know personally, I wouldn't even if it was all of the $35,000. I used a tax of 33%, because I don't know how much different luxury tax would be, but probably higher.
    There's no place like home!

    It's more like 40%.

    Its just NOT enough. When they did the $1,000,000 "couples" show I was saying the same thing... I wouldn't do it.

    Raising the stakes... how many of you would eat/drink the unthinkable for $1,000,000???

    Even with the tax chunk taken out, 15 minutes of nastiness versus the hours of sitting at a desk to earn the money - ickiness would still win out for me. Life is too short - I'd rather be out exploring it. Give me the quick money any day!

    Life is short.. but I'd rather be eating pizza and chasing it down with an ice cold vodka with a splash of cranberry.

    Well...it's not even really like you get $50k minus taxes if you eat that stuff...you get a CHANCE to win $50k minus taxes.

    I'd probably have a harder time beating someone in the physical challeges anyway.

    While I know all restaurants have bugs, IF I see a roach I'll never go back to that restaurant. GROSS!


    (I'm not sure if this sort of topic has been posted before.. if so I'm sorry and understand if this gets deleted).
    I know what you mean, taxes take a good am't of that money and on top of that they arent even guareented to win after eating bugs and slime and having to do really scary stunts.

    Its ridiculous.

    And, yet, people clamor to be on the show and people tune in week after week to watch it.

    If they are gonna do all that crazyness they should be atleast guareenteed to win. Plus they don't even get 50,000 because taxes take a good amount of that.
