For Love or Money ends tonight; prize worth $25,000 a year before taxes.
The first season of For Love or Money ends Monday night, as Rob chooses either Paige or Erin, and Paige or Erin select either Rob or money. The money, however, isn’t quite what it appears to be: Unlike lump-sum payment prizes offered by shows such as Survivor, producers will pay the $1 million out over 40 years. The New York Post reports that’s about $25,000 a year before taxes; if one of the women takes the money, she can also choose a one-time payment of about $800,000, which is still $300,000 more than Big Brother‘s cheap-ass prize.
