TypeI'm sure they are trying thar best to find new all day suckers

So I guess we can take that as you would never be profiled on one of those shows nor watch them?   Lol.  Lurking

    There used to be about 8 full episodes on Youtube but they were removed a couple of months back.

    Removed because some people have pushed the TV program Higher ups in the direction that they  rather see Disney figurines, Wrestling & Gay Couples House Hunting. It seems that the TV landscape has changed.

    People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it- George Bernard Shaw.

      i am so tired of those shows being shoved in my face I am now reduced to a handful of channels.  I am back to watching the shows from the 1960's and '70's when I grew up.   Never could understand how my mother used to watch all the reruns but I sure do now.  Cable is almost going to be gone and tv too.  Very sad.

              I too, wish they would make more episodes.  Love to watch the shows but in no way would I go on them!  The only shows like The Lottery Changed My Life was when someone posted last week that HGTV had two lottery winners looking for new homes.  It was two half hour shows and have not been replayed yet.  Dont know if there will be more in the future.

              The house that California guy who won nearly $188 million was boss in a way, though I did not like the woodsy touches. I also recall that he had said the top end budget would be about $3 million but then purchased house that exceeded that by $2 million. Then to top it off, he purchased the land above and below his. I would say he has already blown his budget. Sure hopes he figures out a way to make that property bring him some income because property taxes will surely eat away at his remaining wealth.

              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!

                The other winner spent about 10 percent of pre-tax lottery winnings on a house. I think I would have sold my current house, moved eastward from California to either Texas or Florida, and then purchased a housing unit in a college town.  But they all have bank accounts bigger than mine since my pay was delayed but my bills hit right on time...first time I ever had a negative balance. I think I should turn to Gofundme since that seems to be the thing to do when bad things happen to good people. What do you think?

                  Being a native Californian, I cant afford living there any longer and it breaks my heart. IMO the liberal lunes have absolutely destroyed that state.

                  There used to be a proposition years ago that if you were grandfathered in with your house your property taxes could not be raised and it was wonderful, then the politicians got ahold of it and Poof!

                  The home the winners bought along with the other parcels was great, with that much land and I think he also bought the cattle, he could lease some acreage for other cattle owners?  I like that it was in the mountains and remote but that is just me, living like that is certainly not for everyone.

                  For his budget, yea he almost doubled it plus.  I would like to think I would find the great location with acreage and a dump of a house and renovate but knowing you had millions it would be hard not to look at brand new homes with higher $$$ tag. 

                  If I recall $188 million was a net of about $100 million?

                    i was just thinking of the Hotel Millionaire, James Gadske (sp).  Cant remember where he was from but his whole life was pretty much exposed on the show.  He did have his friend looking out for him but I wonder how many people caught up with him to ask for money and if he was able to say No.  Sure hope he still has his millions, his story was REAL.  From penniless to millionaire, just the story I love to see.

                      LCML is usually on TLC if you have DISCF  channel check your guide for this coming Sun. at 0100hrs. mine shows a few episodes,

                      reruns as you might expect.

                      I think both channels are run by the same outfit.

                            Any news on new episodes? I would never go on it, but I'm curious to see new winners, although updates on previous winners would be more interesting.

                              I honestly hope his "friend" is truly looking out for him and is not taking advantage of him. I see that he took the annuity and will continue to receive payments untill he reaches 70.
