|Spike TV is offering largest cash prize in TV history for the proof of Bigfoot|
Want a quick tour of what everybody else is saying about Spike TV's announcement of it's new show, 10 Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty?
"Meanwhile, Lloyd's Of London has put up what's being called the largest cash prize in reality TV history, which should compensate for these people immediately flushing away all the profits their industry generates by Bigfoot remaining a mystery. That is, of course, until we launch our own equally scientifically sound reality series, offering $20 million to anyone who offers irrefutable proof that Bigfoot makes amazing frittatas."
--Sean O'Neal; A.V. CLUB
"If there really is a bigfoot out there he better find a damn good hiding spot. SPIKE TV has just ordered 10 hour long episodes of $10 Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty...This should be an interesting reality show. Hopefully Matt Moneymaker and Bobo will show and tell everyone exactly what bigfoot do."
"Forget Donald Trump's $5 million offer for President Obama's college and passport records -- Spike TV has a much more lucrative offer. And it might even be more humorous than Trump's guffaw-inducing "October surprise...It would be the largest cash prize in history, in the unlikely event that one of the teams actually comes up with evidence. Ah, Spike TV. You really can't buy publicity like that. And in this case, you probably won't have to pay a dime."

"Poor Simon Cowell. Not only has his singing competition, “The X Factor,” been eclipsed in the ratings this fall by the NBC singing competition “The Voice.” Now he also can no longer claim that his show’s $5 million prize is the biggest in TV show history. It has been eclipsed by Bigfoot."

"SpikeTV is offering up $10 million to anyone who can prove that the legendary Sasquatch Bigfoot exists. The network's latest reality show — 10 Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty — will feature teams on a quest to find Bigfoot, and the winner *might* walk away with 10 million dollars... if Bigfoot doesn't kill them first! Just kidding, no one is going to win that money. But a group of scientists, zoologists, seasoned trackers, and “actual Bigfoot hunters” will try their best. Your move, TLC."

"Spike TV is offering $10 million for proof that Bigfoot exists. The order comes a few months after Bigfoot hunters from Animal Planet’s Finding Bigfoot series (spoiler alert: the show has not found Bigfoot) got into a rather entertaining argument with TV critics over the legitimacy of their work."
--James Hibberd; EW.com
"Bigfoot’s days are numbered. That’s because Spike TV is upping the ante on all the Bigfoot shows that routinely fail to prove Sasquatch’s existence with a new show that adds a monstrous monetary incentive to anyone out there that can offer definitive proof that the big hairy one is real.
If this show proves to be a hit, I’d like to ahead and preemptively pitch Spike TV or any other interested network my idea for the series 'Ghost Hunting for Dollars'."
