    I think so; those shows typically do give something to 2nd. Regardless, everyone gets a stipend based on how many legs they ran, so in that sense alone, everyone gets a "prize."

    Right here. I think that all contestants get a prize, with the first eliminated getting 1000 dollars to the winner, who gets 1 million.

    2nd place prize has been rumored from anywhere between $25 000-50 000, so nothing like Survivor.

    though it's believed that Romber got quite a substantial amount for coming in 2nd..... though that was probably because of the way it went down and they wanted to shut Romber....

    Everyone gets compensation for missed work too

    Also, the Bransens competed vs. the Weavers in the final challenge for the GMC and the bransens won.
