If I won and was so inclined to do these interviews glob trot, etc., then there going to foot the bill too. They should be paying me for appearing and all the perks that go with it. It's them that are seeking ratings. So why should I pay for anything..... they had every right to ask for the things they did. Demand no but asking questions and getting reliable answers is very important. Suppose they said we'll pay for you flight and a place to stay and you said ok without asking questions and you end up staying in some flea bag hotel on 148th street.

      Usually when you go on a talk show and they pay for your room, you do not end up staying in some flea bag hotel.

        If you don't ask, you don't get.  BTW - they don't have millions.  Not for a couple of more weeks.

        Cheers

          Just give one press conference and be done with it. Why subject yourself to be opened to every lunatic out there.

            Because of the spotlight. 

            Besides, the "lunatic" already knows everything they need to know.  They had weeks to figure it out.

            It is the disillusioned you have to worry about.  Based on news events, cousin Harry is more dangerous then John Gotti.

                    Ayenowital-

                    I am with you.  This is a sad indictment for a group that has come into that amount of money.  To lower yourself to inquire about freebies says a lot about a persons values. 

                    Buy your own damn plane, your own studio for that matter if you love the spotlight so. 

                    We are all going to forget Jack Whitaker shortly.  This is the group that can't shoot straight, the keystone cops, the list goes on. 

                    Yes that is exactly what I am going to do. In fact after I build my own studio, I am also going to be airing my own TV show every day so that no one will ever forget me. It will be called "I won the huge jackpot and you didn't." Followed by multiple tatoos all over my body "PowerBall winner!" "It is bad to be you!" Etc...


                    Ok maybe not...

                      The only 'interview' I would do is the initial press conference and move on from there. I would be in Vegas blowing some of the $$  by now..........

                      What do they have to offer that is so compelling to warrant an interview on the networks ? They had the lucky ticket. After that, who cares ? 

                      Here is what it will be like---

                      Katie: How did you win this ?

                      The Wests and Chaney's: We bought a quick pick

                      Katie: Is this going to change your lives?

                      The Wests and Chaney's : No, we will still have a $20 limit on Christmas gifts.

                      Katie: Are you enjoying New York ?

                      The Wests and Chaney's ? Not really....too fast for us..

                      Katie: OK folks, thanks for playing our little game.....back to you Matt....

                      Matt, are you awake ???

                       

                      lmaooooo too funny

                      I love doubles and remember, it's just a game!!!!!!

                        15 minutes of fame. Why do you people care what these people get and don't get. It is their business. Sheesh, people are nosey and jealous. Try to be happy for them and hope for yourselves.

                          Forgive my ignorance, but I've only recently started playing Powerball...............so for those of you who are more knowledgeable of the rules of Powerball, please answer me this..................just how many interviews/ press conferences, etc. are jackpot winners required to do, in order to fulfill their media schmoozing obligations enough to satisfy lottery headquarter officals? Is it just the initial "coming forth" press conference where you see the officials giving the jackpot winner(s) the gigantic fake check or are there additional appearances that are required?

                          What got me wondering was the variety of comments/answers on this board regarding what you would do if you won. Some of you say you would hardly tell anything, and some of you would go for your 15 minutes of fame and whatever freebies you could get with it.

                          Me personally, I'm a quiet person, who works in a job where details need to be kept confidential. Therefore, I am used to having to keep things to myself and by nature, I avoid the spotlight and bringing any attention to myself at all cost. So if all that is required of a jackpot winner is to come forth, take a few pictures with the lottery commission honchos and get on with your life.........that'd be me!

                            It depends on the state in which you win.

                            In New Jersey you must attend one press conference.  Nowhere does it say you have to say something.

                            In Delaware (Powerball) you can remain totally anonymous.

                              Thanks for the info.............I live in Pennsylvania and no doubt in true Pennsylvania style, you'd probably be obligated to suffer through the maximum of obligations!!!  Another question then......................what is this thing about being able to collect through an anonymous trust? How does that work and is that offered in every state or is that something else that depends on which state you live in as well?
