posting reveals Amazing Race prize money, claims Romber received $500K.
A post from an unnamed online forum reproduced at SurvivorSucks purports to be from The Amazing Race 6‘s Aaron, and alleges that “Rob and Amber reportedly recieved 500,000 to do the show.” That’s reportedly in addition to the money they received to whore their wedding to the network; thus, their grand total is discovered using this formula: “All Stars + TAR + The Wedding = 2.6 Million”. Perhaps more interestingly, the post also reveals what the teams get for placing second, third, fourth, and so on. The breakdown, according to this post:

  1. $1,000,000
  2. $25,000
  3. $10,000
  4. $7,000
  5. $6,000
  6. $5,000
  7. $4,000
  8. $3,500
  9. $3,000
  10. $2,500
  11. $1,500
