A new reality TV series is offering participants a grand prize of $10M if they can prove Bigfoot exists.

Called "10 Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty" the new show is being produced by Spike TV who have joined forces with Lloyd's of London to offer what is being advertised as the largest cash prize in television history. Several teams of explorers will take part and all they need to do to claim the money is to produce irrefutable evidence that the elusive hominid exists.

"The teams will be faced with the daunting task of proving to a group of experts that Bigfoot, the hairy ape-like sasquatch, exists with the irrefutable evidence," reads the show's synopsis. "The winner will be the first team to secure proof -- and win the unprecedented $10 million bounty." The series is due to be filmed across several locations in the United States.

"America's Spike TV is teaming up with Lloyd's of London to offer a $10 million prize to reality show participants who can prove Bigfoot exists."

Yeah, unfortunately there are some fools out there I just wonder if they'll be more fools, new ones, out there with the 10 mil bounty. Hunting-ignorant ones who wouldn't give guns or hunting the time of day, before.

The real fools will be those who go out hunting bigfoot for the $10 million. Clearly, the $10 million is ONLY for this Show's Contestants. It would be like trying to win American Idol by getting into the Studio Audience and rushing the stage while singing at the top of your voice. All that is going to happen is Security is called.

Yeah, I'm sure there will be non-contestants who will think that's what a bf body is worth.

Would anyone believe I found Bigfoot in Hawaii? What if he/she was hiding behind some coconut trees? Or maybe slowly walking away from me on the beach looking back at me while I film it on a grainy 8 mm? I could use $10,000,000.00.

Let the excuses begin..... ( I.E. The Randi Challenge ) Good find by the way ! The curse of Phil Klass comes to mind as well........... Would anyone believe I found Bigfoot in Hawaii? What if he/she was hiding behind some coconut trees? Or maybe slowly walking away from me on the beach looking back at me while I film it on a grainy 8 mm? I could use $10,000,000.00. 50% and I am a supporting eyewitness.

make it 50 mil. and i will show you the real bigfoot. but, you can't touch them, you will not going to get DNA and specially you can't have them. you will smell their bile odor, you will see their finite appearance, they will show you the atmost thing that all want to see, their strength and power ! deal ?! 10 mil. is a loose change !
