Money Hungry – Coming Soon To VH1

|

money_hungry_main

There’s a new weight-loss show coming to VH1 Monday, August 2 at 9/8c with a very 51 Mindsian twist: the $100,000 grand prize will be pooled from the contestants’ bank accounts. More on Money Hungry in the mini-press release below…

For the average individual the desire to lose weight is not enough motivation to make it happen. But what if the motivation to stay trim was $10,000 of your very own hard earned cash? That’s exactly what VH1’s new series Money Hungry will test, as 12 pairs of contestants will compete against each other to see which team can resist temptation and drop the most weight. Hosted by Dan Cortese, each team on Money Hungry will have to put up an entry fee of $10,000 of their own money to begin the competition. In a winner takes all fashion, the couple who sheds the most combined weight will walk away with $100,000. Each week the couples will face grueling challenges, supersized temptations and pressure filled weigh-ins on their quest to win the $100,000 grand prize.

Check out more shots of the cast in the gallery below…

  32. PRNCESSTEE706 says:

    why would you have to put your own money into a reality show? vh1 maybe if you had better reality shows, you would have more ratings and more money to pay the people you WANT on ur show….i no longer deal with vh1 becuz there is nothing worth watching, if ur not going to show better reality shows, then atleast play some music once in awhile and not at 5am when nobody is watching…smh vh1…and smDh at this stupid show

  48. Lena says:

    All I have to say these are the ugliest bunch of human beings I have ever seen is VH1 kidding me I almost puked. One is uglier then the other.

  49. Tammy Mason says:

    I think team pairofnuts is a joke, it is obvious they don’t need to be there, not saying they don’t need to be in shape but seriously this game is for obese people who are fighting for their health, losing weight is not an option for them. Good Luck to all who are giving their all. The people who are devious and trying to get other teams eliminated need to stop because that strategy can really come back to bite them. That’s why rocker mom’s going home, listening to mission slimpossible. Team flabulous hang in there.
