I'm really surprised these winners show their face. I would'nt want anyone knowing what i have. People kill for your shoes, imagine millions. Plus all the vultures come out and everyone expects a share.Angry

I agree.  Vultures are everywhere. It reminds me of people who volunteer their homes for tours (some townhomes/neighborhoods do this once a year to show remodeling you have done, etc.). I never do it since I would not want strangers going through my home. Don't advertise what you own.

It is kind of like when you write a book or two. People assume you made millions and they all want to know "shortcuts" (vs hard work) to getting a book deal. Keep your old car and do not stand out.

    Isn't it a sad reflection of our society when you don't want people to know what you have because you are afraid that they will take it.

      So true.  There was a great book out more than 15 years ago, called the Millionaire Next Door (or something like that)....drove an old Ford and blended in....good advice.

                There is another The Lottery Changed My Life marathon on Monday April 2nd starting at 3 pm. It was on the schedule for the last few weeks. TLC should have ran marathons all this week just for ratings.

                    crackin up, "a few fries short of a happy meal" must of missed this when you 1st posted it,

                    theres a GED that won't happen.

                    i think i'm missing a lot of posts now cause we not only have MM fever,

                     but it seems to have upped the amount of threads being put up.

                      The guy with the NASCAR team worried me a little bit, seemed a little too fast and loose with his money.

                      I know he's got a lot of money but 4 or 5 houses and all those vehicles and all those employees on the race team can eat it up real fast.

                      Joe Denette was interviewed on 20/20 and told Barbara Walters he has spent half of his winnings in 3 years. After winning $76 million dollars he took home $50 million after taxes. He will be on the marathon Monday at 6 pm.
