PLEASE NOTE: The Reality TV World Message Boards are filled with desperate attention-seekers pretending to be one big happy PG/PG13-rated family. Don't be fooled. Trying to get everyone to agree with you is like herding cats, but intolerance for other viewpoints is NOT welcome and respect for other posters IS required at all times. Jump in and play, and you'll soon find out how easy it is to fit in, but save your drama for your mama. All members are encouraged to read the complete guidelines. As entertainment critic Roger Ebert once said, "If you disagree with something I write, tell me so, argue with me, correct me--but don't tell me to shut up. That's not the American way."

"Question #2"
E&J won and spent their days bumming around and surfing, how long would a million last them?

Watching the Hippies, I am sure they could travel the world again and still have most of it in the end because they seem to understand how to 'go native' and live cheaply if they want.

The Frat boys are diffirent. I am not sure they would invest thier money wisely to live off the interest, shelter it from taxes, and not blow it all on parties/girls.

I figure if you get $500,000 the tax man wants $200,000 up front. But if you get it into the right shelters you may pay as little as $100,000 to $75,000. If you can hold on to say $350,000, max out your RRSPs (I am sure E&J have paid little so far) and get $300,000 to just collect interest on you can live a beach bum life for decades. At 5% return that is $15,000 a year, that may not sound like much but how much does a beach bum really need? Plus that is without lifting a finger, get a part-time job in the off seasons and you can double that without working hard either.


Do you think E&J could pull it off? Do you think the hippies will?

Frat boys: With $300K each, they buy a party house, maybe on a lake with a boat they can't maintain, a few flashy fast cars, lavishly treating the ladies who are after what's left of their fame and money. The money runs out within two years, and their party life and ability to score goes back to pre-Race levels.

Beach bums: Yeah, they could easily live on $40 a day, along with doing some airline promos so they get free first-class flights to travel anywhere they want to go.

I could imagine the Hippies applying some of their winnings toward a good cause, too.

Since they won a few trips coming to the mat first, I would say a lot of money will be spent trying to swoon "foreign chicks".

I say 3-4 years and they'll be back to their same lifestyle.

(And to think I wasted my 500 DAW on the frat boys, I disappoint myself so often)
