WTF?! don't you have any say in that?!?? shit man, if my kids don't make straight As on their finals, no vacation for them!

Oh no no no, not MY kids. Her students, that is.
You are right though. No straight A's, no dinner.

I love how fake and cheap the millionaires are on this show. They're supposed to give away at least $100k. None of them have given more than $100k away & they act like it's such a huge decision which charity case to give it to when, in the end, they give a little to each. A wk or so ago, a dude worth $300m gave away just $100k and acted like a drama queen throughout.

the first guy gave away 120k, the guy in the sixth episode gave away 150k....
I don't know if they're really giving money to these people, but if they are...good for them.

the 300M guy - that is just sad. If I had that much, I'd just donate anonymously...

A common theme to the show is when these millionaires are about to fess up that they are not poor. They are so afraid that the poor people are gonna be pissed at them. Yeah right, like they are really afraid that these poor people will be pissed for getting free money.

Just watched the episode with Scott Jacobs in Camden NJ. Anyone see the sick E60 M5 at the end when they were walking through the hood? lol

Kinda annoying. Dude sells his paintings for 50-150k a piece and he donated a total of 150k. I mean come on.

They came to my city, and gave money to a couple ladies that are sisters, that run a kitchen here that delivers to needy people. Our city--and home builders helped remodel their homes, too.

It's not all fake.

Playing devil advocate, last time I check, you don't become millionaire by giving money away.

And if you work for every dollar to your 300M, not sure if you want to give them away so easily..

Despite the fact that some people do inherit wealth, some still do work their ass off at a point in life to strike luck or gold.

I was once told, the rich stays rich by keeping the poor poor. Thats life.
