    These contestants should get paid

    This show is taking people from their jobs/schools just so they can embarass them. They deserve to get some financial compensation. Anyone know if they are?

    I don't know but I wouldnt be surprised if they were getting some sort of compensation. I know the winner does get a $100,000 contract.

    I think the perks including the "superstar treatment" and wide exposure is their compensation.

    I was wondering the same thing last night, b/c unlike AI, where someone has a chance to get seen & signed even if they don't win, there is no one in their right mind who would give a record contract to any of these people. The only person who it ends up being worthwhile for is the winner.
    Artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity.

    I'm sure they each at least get scale. Anyone know if reality show stars are issued SAG cards? There's no way the WB could use their images without paying for it.

    I know the performers get paid for the time they are on AI, which is a matter of nearly three months for the final two.
    I'mnot sure what time span this show was filmed over, but if they are required to be away from their jobs for more than a couple of weeks then I agree that they should be compensated.
