  • Just giving for that million dollars?

    6.0
    This is an okay show I guess. What I like about this show is that it can influence people to give, give, and give. Here are some of the things I like about the show.

    -I loved how the contestants compete without knowing that there will be any surprise at the end. -I loved the see how they raised the money and their creativity.

    - How much work they put into it.



    Here are some of the things that I think isn't good about the show:

    - People would want a reward for giving.

    - You should naturally give.



    Overall, an okay show. Just like any other show from Oprah Winfrey.moreless
  • Strange concept, but somehow very captivating.

    At first, when I heard about this show, I thought it wouldn't be very good. But, then I watched it, and even though it's kind of stupid that they're competing through giving, I love to see the reactions on the faces of these people when they get something. Just earlier tonight, I watched an episode for the second time, and I got a thrill out of it. They were able to grant the wish of playing in Carnegie Hall to a woman who's terminally ill and pay off the mortgage of an unhappy family with a father suffering from cancer. It also projects a good idea, and it's about time that television shows some good news happening.moreless

    I love the show the cast and everything about the show I love how Oprah is always behind things like this! I just love it I never miss the show and maybe one day I will get the chance of being on it or getting some of the big give showed my way! I so feel all these peoples problems and feelings about people never getting anything handed to them! These people are really shocked and you can tell that they feel it from there hearts when the get these gifts from the givers it just really touches my heart and if I was in a position where I could give it forward I would love to but as of now I'm not but some day some where there will be someone and I will as they say PAY IT FORWARD!moreless
  • You like it or not this show should inspire everybody to help each other.

    OK Folks. Some of you may have not liked the concept of this show. Yes me too, I don't like it, if the contestants are not nice to each other. Yes, I don't like all the decisions of the judges, but in which show you do. For me giving big or small is the same worth. If you have watched episode 103, you might have seen the shining eyes of the children, when they were receiving their christmas presents. And I think this is what is all about in this show; to make us think about helping each other.

    So thank you Big Give! Thank You, Oprah.moreless
  • Has far as I am concern I feel the wrong one was sent home if you start out leaving half team back in the dark you will have arguements. I found the one left on the show was very rude cutting people off. Nothing gets done properly I feel their was .moreless

    I feel their was discrimation going on last night . Because even the young man on that team was shock on who was sent home review your tapes . Her comment is she felt she did everything on the show last night was discussing . I thought the work last night was to be a team player. Not a one person show lack of communitcation on anyones part.

    I have watch this show sent it started and I believe in the Big Give Ideal my mother & I have been helping give to a special little girl it willbe ten years this Friday.moreless
