I didn't really care if the BQ won or E&D but I don't like the non-elimination rounds. It is not fair. I think every week should be an elimination. If you ferk up bad then you should be outta there.

This may be answered elsewhere but thought I would ask if anyone knows how the AR All Stars were paid?
For some reason I think the Rob and Amber would play for $1M but also would expect some additional incentive to be there.
Are any/all paid some amount for just being there?
Do they get more for lasting longer?

Just interested in what motivates them. In Big Brother most seem to be there for the fame potential and the $ they get per week (which seems like more than most of them usually earn). Survivor it seems like folks play for positioning since each rank of remaining pays more (and Top four is not too bad - if I remember like 50K for 4th place).

Also, anyone know of any good links to see how reality contestants are paid? AR or otherwise?

Good links? Not really.

How about a mediocre one? LOL http://www.tarflies....etail&id=29#et4

Do the losing teams get any cash prizes?
Yes, the losing teams do get small cash prizes, staggered according to how long the team stayed in the race. For some reason, these amounts are kept very secret (much more so than the Sequesterville locations), but we have heard rumors that the second-place prize for some seasons has been $25,000 or $50,000, and third place was $10,000 or $25,000.

According to Aaron of TAR6, here's the prize breakdown:
1st- 1,000,000
2nd- 25,000
3rd- 10,000
4th- 7,000
5th- 6,000
6th- 5,000
7th- 4,000
8th- 3,500
9th- 3,000
10th- 2,500
11th- 1,500

This is, however, unverified


Of course, I imagine that it being All-Stars might mean the prizes were bigger. (Maybe even much bigger.)
