Lottery Winners Gone Broke

After reading the article about Jack Whittaker, I realized that a reality show about lottery winners who lost it all wouldn't be a bad idea.  I know TLC has that show about how the lottery changed people's lives for the better (mostly), but maybe there should be a show about how an instant winfall may not always be a good thing.  What do you think of the idea?

There is a show called "The Curse of the Lottery" showing how things didn't work out.

I don't watch much TV and this doesn't sound like something I'd rush home to watch, but if I were channel surfing and a show like this were on, I'm sure I'd tune into it.!

Dumb people make me mad and make me want to wring their necks.  I don't want to watch a show just to get mad.

lol With all the nutcases from hoarders to my strange addictions, etc. there are a lot of people who want to be on TV (and I lot who like negative attention).

My TV is for news, documentaries and sports. No reality shows, no game shows, no drama series. So my answer is a NO

Isn't a documentary the original reality show?

The reality shows that we have on tv nowadays focus on the private side of the people rather than the topic. For example I love love love Nova documentaries on PBS (Shame on Romney for wanting to end its funding lol ). We never get to see the private lives of the scientists that are interviewed. I like that.

The Jack Whittaker story is sad. Having been a hardworking man that worked himself up to a millionaire, you'd think he would've been more careful with the lottery money, but it's easy to say what you will and will not do until you've won a jackpot that size. I'd imagine he'd give every cent back to have his family back. From what I've read, he seemed like a good hearted fella.....perhaps too giving for his own good.....I'm sure he'd do everything differently if he had a second chance...At least I hope his story will help others make the right choices if or when they win.
