I agree with ya'll on several points. If they were playing for Charity, players couldn't play the game correctly. Currently, players like to take money out of the pot, to convince others that they are the mole. This money is coming out of the contestants pockets. However, if this money was going to a charity, they would be taking from a charity and many wouldn't want to do that (or would look bad for doing that).

I think you'd be suprised to find out that some of these celebrities aren't well off at all. Dennis Rodman, is obviously very well off, but have you seen what he does in his free time? He could blow a few million in a weekend, no problema.
