These people who do this type of Shows is Exposing themselves to many people who may want to Harm , Con or Even Murder and etc.  them and their faimily .

Friends and Family turn on you when you have Excessive amounts of money !!! They believe and think you owe them apart of the Winnings !!!

I always wondered why some would risk, especially if they have kids or grandkids to think about.

Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

For a lead role in a cage?

      I wouldn't even bring my family to the press circus if I won.

        For the most part the program is pretty entertaining and informative, but it seems for every one jp winner that keeps their head on straight there are a dozen who just have to buy a fleet of cars, multiple houses, etc....

        The smartest person that they've ever had on was a very young guy whose wife wanted him to get out of the Navy. He won the lottery and he did. He said when he was a Jaguar or other expensive car he'd look at it and think he could buy one - but he wasn't going to.

        Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

        There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

          I was curious to see few minorities winning the big jackpots. I remember that african-american youth from Florida who got murdered for his $$$$. Besides that I don't remember seeing anyone else of color. I read about the Latino who got cheated from his scratch-off winnings by Pak/Indo retailers. I'm just wondering if those quick-picks are not so random after all.

          I am what some would call a minority of a group that voted in a majority way for the man who cannot cut spending.  I used to root for other minorities to win whenever I realized it was not me holding the winning ticket.  However, now I a hope whoever wins is someone or some pool that did not vote for the man in WH until 2016. And for the record, I never voted for him because I heard what he was saying and did not like what I was hearing. It wouldn't surprise me if he proposes a special "you didn't earn that" tax on lottery winnings!

          Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

          The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

            LOL that girl had stalker characteristics....You remember he said that they would break -up and she would seek him out then he finally decided to go into the Navy after 9/11 and she couldn't get to him so she wanted to win the lottery to get him out and when she won she had called all over that naval base trying to find him and left all kinds of messages...I hope they are happy and they seemed to be on the show but I'll bet that relationship is intense...to say the least....

              There is that Cynthia (?) woman who thinks she is a hollywood producer. The show had her debating on a huge diamond purchase. I thought the money went to her head. I see a lot of minorities win the 2nd place PB and MM prizes as well.

              Cynthia Stafford,

               

              is this her?

                    I try to watch an hour or so of it.  I was amazed at this one lottery winner who showed a bag of letters asking for money and he said he actually met with one guy who asked for 18 Million dollars?  Why is he even meeting with these people?

                    Good question, I would lay very low, my first concern would be the safety of my family.

                          There are several "skinny" cameras on the market that actually remove 10-30 pounds.

                          One of the more popular models is called the "Anorexic Abdominizer" by Cannon. Thumbs Up

                              I saw her pricing planes, she's decided to think about it after she heard the price of themLOL
