How do you think they goaded her? Seems like fraud if she's told she wins $1M but then doesn't (Publisher's Clearinghouse has been sued successfully for a less obvious breach of contract). I agree, she knows from personal experience how unlikely it is that she or any of the men will find true love from the experience.

I think in her confused mind she must have thought that this would make her not a gold digger. She is choosing to search for love rather than have the million dollars that she already won. I don't think her motivation was in doubling it.

Everyone keeps saying how could she give up 1 million dollars. It is not actually 1 million dollars. If you did the 40 year thing it comes out to like 25,000 a year. Not a lot to give up when you have a chance to double it.

I don't care too much anymore.
This show is messed up.
NBC is jerking everyone around too much.
I've never seen a show dragged out as much
as the final episode of flom.
Actually- after taxes it would only be about $14,000 per year- Go for it Erin!

Retirement will be sweet, thats about when the first installment is paid out. Erin be sure to get out those reading glasses before you sign the dotted line on that contract.
Yoffy lifts a finger...
I agree, butdid she know it would be paid over 40 years.

The race is back!
Someone mentioned, however true or untrue it was, that Erin supposedly took 3 weeks to make her decision of foregoing the money in favor of doing the second show. I would like to believe it, even if it's not true. Because if it's not, my last shred of hope for humanity just went down in flames.

And, actually I liked Erin. Giving up the money that she already won seems really dumb. Plus, she's very attractive and otherwise came across as fairly intelligent and articulate. I can't believe that she wouldn't have more luck finding love on her own than on a reality show.
