Just watched "the Power of 10"......19 year old won 1 Million on the premire show....Backed out trying for 10 million..Good thing ! He would have lost.

just wondered if anyone has won Big money..

Where do the TV stations get that much money to give away..I know commercials...But thats alot of money !:confused:

They may also be insured.

I know when you see a new car offered for a hole in one in a golf outing, the people putting on the event have purchased an insurance policy against it. No one has donated a new car to them.

They do genuinely want you to win and for the policy to pay off. It is good press for them and as Stan said, insured so they were paying regardless.

You should of read the background of Pepsi's play for a billion game a few years back. Man, the odds at winning that were downright impossible.
