    BURBANK August 14, 2006
    This summer, ten teams searched the globe on a wild ride to find a hidden treasure. For the final three teams, Air Force, Geniuses and the Southie Boys, their hunt will finally reach its thrilling conclusion as one team unlocks the final puzzle, and the worth of the treasure will be revealed live from Washington, D.C. on Monday, August 21 from 9-10 p.m. on NBC.

    All 30 cast members will be reunited for the first time since they began their hunt, with Laird Macintosh hosting the finale.

    Have they ever really said that the treasure is worth a lot?

    I hope it's not a hoax...

    but it's not FOX, so nevermind.

    Super Goten, FOX just read your idea and is now developing a new show. Teams will travel around the world to find a treasure, and the team that crosses the finish line first will win a spot on Unan1mous 2!

    Don't be surprised if we see it soon.

    But, in response to your question, they have said a "treasure worth millions". Take that for what it's worth.

    Sorry but this show has got to be the most unexciting thing I have seen in a long time. The host of this show is so damn boring that I almost fell asleep at the finale. They could have done so much with this premise but instead its just plain LAME.

    I could not agree with you more! I hate every minute I wasted watching this sorry excuse for entertainment.

    I totally agree - 15 min. and it was over - I wish I'd watched Closer! What a waste of an hour!

    I was totally surprised they gave away $3 million. That has to make it the most expensive prize in reality TV history.

    My husband and I really like this show. I think they could have done a lot of things different in the finale, but overall the series was enjoyable.

    I too was very surprised at the amount. They each got $1 million instead of having to split the money. Wow, that's a huge prize. But Genworth got so much advertising out of this show it had to be worth it. Their product was mentioned so many times, and flashed on the screen so often that I imagine it was well worth that amount.
