The new show, '10 Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty', offers a hefty cash prize for irrefutable evidence.
Spike TV's answer to Animal Planet's "Finding Bigfoot" debuted on Friday night and offers an impressive cash prize of $10 million to anyone who can produce conclusive evidence that the elusive hairy hominid is lurking the wilds of North America.

Hosted by actor Dean Cain, the series features the efforts of nine teams of two as they attempt to find either visual or DNA evidence that can prove Bigfoot's existence. Two scientific experts, including primatologist Dr. Todd Disotell, will be offering their own opinions and advice during the series.

"How I actually first became involved is in helping to write what the scientific evidence would have to be," said Disotell who remains skeptical that the prize will ever be claimed.

"I can't say there’s no possibility of it because science can't say something doesn't exist. We can only test what’s out there. But I'm skeptical, so I think it's a pretty low probability that they'll have to pay it out."

I hope Mr, Big looks like your avatar and we find the lost footage of the show (blood bath) after everyone goes missing.

Every "hunter" on the show has this logic: "Bigfoot does not exist unless I find it"

Smeja and Ro were sent home. Yippee! I'm sure they didn't see that coming. I wouldn't trust anything they brought to the table. But that's me.

On the latest episode near Bluff Creek, Dean Cain said there have been more than 40 confirmed bigfoot sightings. is the definition of a confirmed bigfoot sighting?

You mean you can phone it in? Sure beats running around in the woods.

Heck, running around in the woods? Just dreaming it counts.

Always disappointed in these. Rumor has it though that les miles from survivor man is trying to put a Bigfoot show together. That would be interesting

He is, and not interesting. He is in with Todd Standing. ( search him here, or google ) " Sylvanic "......What a joke. Now, Les will be a fraud, greedy, just like the rest of them.....I liked the guy until now.

Aw! No 10 million dollar bounty given away. Shocking that. But, chumming for bigfoot and pulling a hair out of your beard to submit for DNA testing apparently gets you $100,000 in bigfoot research grant money. Whatever that means. I wanted Kat and Michael to win.
