Cool Cuban to give away $1 million on his reality show

Quote:
Associated Press

DALLAS -- Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban will give away $1 million of his own money when he hosts an ABC-TV reality series this summer called "The Benefactor."

"Why has he agreed to give away such a large sum of money? Simply because he can and because he can't wait to devise the means through which applicants must prove to him that they deserve the money," ABC said in a news release to be issued Tuesday.

About 30 contestants will compete on the series for the cash from billionaire Cuban. Show details, like the format and number of episodes, remain to be worked out, The Dallas Morning News reported in Tuesday's editions.

In a statement released to the newspaper, Cuban said the show will not be a traditional contest.

"Everyone has dreamed of getting rich, and I want to help one lucky person get there," Cuban said in the statement.

All I can say is at least he will have more charisma and personality than Donald Trump...

Especially when 99% of it isn't "reality." Surprised this isn't on FOX...

I like the idea... Cuban, whether you like him or hate him, always speaks his mind no matter the consequences... and I respect him for that. He has my "most interesting NBA owner" award, and I'm quite curious to see what hoops he's going to make these guys (and girls) jump through.. should be entertaining, and knowing Cuban, probably piss a few people off in the process.
