ABC gives them some of the money. Also they get money from ads during commercial breaks. do you mean to be on the show? I think the fee is $0 but you have to answer a bunch of questions by calling the phone # at the end of the show.

What ABC does is they buy an insurance. The insurance pays the money to players, and of course the player has to be approximately 40% in taxes (depending on what state your in, lol)

What the insurance thing does is they have a policy that "bets" against the odds of what people will make it, and how far. Thats why if u noticed ABC had some trouble a while back because the questions were getting "too" easy...

So the insurance company said something to them, and then thats why you need some "real" common sense for like the first 5.
