what show winners did with their cash.
So what happens in the months after a reality TV show winner gets their prize, and the point at which they appear on Pyramid with Donny Osmond? They spend their after-tax cash. FOX News rounds up winners and asks them what they did with their money, and here are the results of their fair and balanced survey: Joe Schmo Matt Kennedy Gould “set up a ‘diversified financial portfolio’ and bought a digital camera, camcorder and iPod.” … For Love or Money 2’s Erin Brodie and Chad Viggiano are still waiting for their $2 million. What’s up with that, NBC? Waiting to pay the Friends’ final year salaries first? … The Amazing Race 4’s Reichen “bought a Larson cabin cruiser and a Mercedes sedan, while [Chip] splurged on custom-made golf clubs.” … Survivor Thailand’s Brian Heidik “bought a Dodge Viper and diamond earrings for his wife—but stashed most of his big-bucks winnings in bonds, mutual funds and his 3-year-old son’s college fund.” … Paradise Hotel’s Charla “Philstrom wants to buy a house, while [Keith] Cuda split his $250,000 kitty with girlfriend Tara Gerard.”
… Finally, most surprisingly, Big Brother 3’s Lisa Donahue “donated most of her winnings to charity (including Animal Avengers), but had enough left to buy a ‘top-of-the-line’ SUV.”
