But with an average 14million viewers, it's also about making big bucks. Here, Nicole Lampert examines how he's raking in the millions.

you didn't know this was just a cash cow for SC before reading this lol

Err, wasn't it obvious from the beginning?

You mean hes making money out of it?

I'm shocked!

Ofcourse he is and there is nothing wrong with that. He is a business machine AND he is offering a chance to a lot of people. Why would he do it otherway? Would YOU? I think it is a WIN WIN situation. At the end it is up to the people to decide wheather they want to be part of it or just "stay home and just dream" of becoming something they always wanted.
