$25 millon hoax

No one watching? One overriding thing I have about the show is I just don't get why all that family appears to be living together. I guess though in today's world it's more common for everyone to stay in the nest while trying to find a job and get out on their own

i think it's great it's just 3 eps, more than that would be painful!

I watch it and like it alot... but i like alot of the shows that people here hate!

3 episodes total is nice... it doens't drag on and on. I'm disappointed by the very end of ep 2 when then showed a preview of the finale. They practically showed us everything... Won't be much surprise when i see it next week.

I've been watching it and have mostly enjoyed it. I admit to fast forwarding through a lot of the second episode, though; it gets old after a while. I'm glad that next week is the end. I'm a little astonished how well the family is able to 'bite there tongue' and not just let the girl (dang, I forget her name!) do what she wants.

I also noticed that the preview for next week gave way too much info away about the outcome of the 'reveal'.

Oh, and the male pig in me wants to say I find the girl pretty cute. She's my type.

I think it's ridiculous that the family would ask/expect her to buy them anything. It's her money and her choice how much she wants to do for them. It would be one thing if they were trying to tell her that what she was doing wasn't smart financially or that some of the comments she's made were hurtful, but they're just saying "buy me a car" or "she didn't even buy me this or that". I agree that most people would and/or should buy things for family, but they shouldn't be required to. If I were her (and it weren't all a setup) I wouldn't want to buy them anything just because they were clamoring (sp?) for it. Of course, knowing these shows it's probably been edited so it looks like they're extra greedy.

Of course... do you think NBC would pick an unattractive girl for that role?

This show was very disturbing and should remind us of the covetous urge within the human psyche that leads to communist systems. It did not take long for the family members to think in terms of "my money".

I liked how the final credits of the show specified that the Lexus convertible that she had "won" was actually a three month lease on a Lexus convertible.

Kind of like that Atlantic City episode on the last season of Apprentice when one of the teams appeared to be giving away a car, but were actually giving away an amount of money that you could use to rent the car for one day.

Oh, that sucks!! She should have won $500,000 to make the total price for the family around $1,000,000. She ended up winning less than some of her family!

Boy, that's just cheap. Would it have really killed NBC to at least pay for a full standard 2 year lease or something? Heck, the fuel burnt on those private jet flights in the show cost more.

On the other hand, her being young and single probably means she'd have to blow her 'fortune' on auto insurance.
