Do Rudy and Amanda receive any prize money for finishing 2nd and 3rd?

I assume so but didn't see a pay out table on a quick google.

Pretty much every show has to pay you something, and either it is a so much per week you were on the show as some sort of stipend or they do a by place.

I'm not sure what the legalities would be of paying everyone nothing other than the winner. I think they usually have to pay you something as they are making money off the show so it only seems fair.

ETA: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20090226051618AAc3jgq says one of the former contestants from a previous season seemed to indicate you got paid by the week. So every week away from home you get a stipend.

Thanks for the info. It makes sense about the stipen on Biggest Loser. Now I'm curious if other reality shows do the same or have runner up prizes. I think Survivor does for the final 4

No they don't, but the good news is rudy is out of the hospital and doing fine. They should have been clearer on how dangerous it can be resuming a normal diet
