I think all lottery winners also need an "art" 101 class. There are so many rip off collectibles and people don't realize that they are buying junk and so are 100000 other people. I saw some show (maybe it was hoarders or maybe the lottery show?) where this woman had hundreds of current disney "collectibles" she thought would be worth a fortune. What goes up in price (99.9% of the time) are items not made for the "collectibles market."  I think so many of these people have the beanie baby mentality and we saw what happened to the beanie baby crash (it was a fad only).

That's so very true sometimes people think just cause they have a C.O.A. (certificate of authenticity) that it's worth a big payout...when in fact alot of stuff is massed produced and the more that's out there the lower the actual value is

    I just wrote TLC this morning:

    After watching your series "Lottery Changed My Life" I have started playing the lottery.  Its truly a great show watching ordinary people win the lottery and watching their lives changed for good and bad.  When I started playing, I stumbled upon an active lottery community which has over 100,000 active members who are dedicated, loyal and play constantly!  We discuss games, strategy and lottery news throughout the world.  We actively watch the old Lottery Changed My Life shows as if we know the people featured and we would like to see new ones.  As far as I'm aware, TLC is the only network who has had an active lottery series.  You've got a hit and a loyal following!  Please continue making this great show. 

    Thank you.

    Huge Fan of Lottery Changed My Life

      I'm probably in the minority here but...ick! Please spare us anymore of these types of shows. Could barely make it through one episode. Watching people overindulge and be foolish is not my idea of entertainment. I'd rather spend my time more productively.

        With all the recent lottery headlines (good and bad) there's got to be interest in another lottery show like LCML.  Just regular people winning the lottery and showing how their life changed.  There's got to be "big time" TV Executives reading the board.  There's a TV series coming on ABC called "Lucky 7" where a group of people win the lottery, it debuts this September.  LCML is what got me playing the lottery and I'm sure its easy finding people who want to share their stories.  Lets get some new lottery shows out there=)

            I barely watch TV nowadays, the only reason I still have my cable TV is due to it working out cheaper than just paying for internet alone as I get TV and internet together.

             

            Even if they did bring it out it would be years till they showed it on UK TV.

             

            Do they have LCML on Netflix or something I can't find it anywhere.

            2016 Won/Lost

            EuroMillions / Spent: £22 / Won £0 / Total -£22

            UK Lotto / Spent: £4 / Won: £0 / Total: -£4

            Jan: -£22 Feb: £0 ~ Mar: £0 ~ April: £0 ~ May: £0 ~ June: £0 ~ July: £2

                I remember on the first Curse of the Lottery show. The financial advisor that runs the Sudden Wealth institiute said "Winning the lottery doesn't make you smarter, prettier, thinner or taller. It just means you have a bigger bank account'.

                One out of five isn't bad. Five being the bigger bank account.

                I heard this on an old Dick Van Dyke episode: I'm relatively happy. I make a couple of bucks my relatives are happy

                  I can't remember the guy's name, but one of the best segments was the guy who had just lost his parents;  he owned the house, but couldn't work for some reason * and his electricity was about to be turned off or his gas had already been.  He won a pretty big lottery, nothing HUGE but a good one.

                  *I don't mean to be insensitive, but he was a little "simple".  He could function all right, but....He was lucky to have a good friend who helped him with his money, was nice to see the man didn't take advantage of him. 

                  He started living in a fairly nice motel, nothing really fancy and he ate out almost all the time.  He did have a small fridge and microwave in his room.  When he went out to eat, he sometimes invited his good friend and he always got an extra meal take-out so he could feed some cats.   The reason his story touched my heart was because it was good to see someone who was really helped by the lottery, yet it was more than a little sad to see how he was alone except for the one friend and a bunch of stray cats. (that sort of hit close to home for me)  At first, I thought he should fix up his house and live in it, be cheaper in the long run, but he said the house held bad memories for him, his parents being gone and being so broke and alone.  Also, at least in the motel, he had maid service and human contact and was close enough to walk to restaurants and other stores. (I don't think he could drive)  Like I said, one of my fav. segments of the series.

                          I remember that episode, he would wear a suit everday and get two of everything (during dinner) so he would have left over for his cats.  He would also pay his motel bill weekly or monthly, I forgot which one.  I just hope he's careful living in that motel, so many crazy people out there and motels don't have the best security. I would hope that someone talked him into getting a house somewhere.

                            That is so sad but I loved to see the ones that people who really need it are the ones to win.  I hate watching people that are already well-off win and all they do is buy bigger homes and more expensive cars, more vacations--- don't help anyone else.

                            I seen one episode where this couple had a really nice 3 or 4 bedroom home and was complaining that it was too small so they bought a 1-2 million dollar home.  Nothing at all was wrong with the house they had.  I would have loved to have a home like their old one.
