Your Beliefs or $50,000?

Email  Print Print  

How strongly to you hold your beliefs? Would you betray them for $5,000? What about $10,000? What about $1M? Watch the clip in this post. As you watch it, think about how much it would take for you to bend your beliefs just a little bit. And then, if you’re so inclined, read the rest of this for my thoughts.

Amazing that the woman accepted the $50,000 considering the ferocity with which she reacted. Now, if you haven’t seen the episode, and I haven’t, you have no idea how “dark-sided” this other woman or her family is. From the family’s reaction, it didn’t sound like the other spouse was that bad but then again they don’t sound as if they’re as religious as the mother was.

Update: That lady was on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Nov. 30th (tonight)! She revealed that she went on the show so that she could get the gastric bypass surgery and she knew about the money beforehand (her insurance denied her the surgery) but she was going to share part of it with family of course. She honestly didn’t seem all that ultra-religious when she appeared on the show and she explained that the other family was nice but they weren’t religious enough for her. Apparently there was a bobble head doll that sold for like $800 on Ebay and it turns out it was Jay who bought it (or a staffer) and he presented it to her. A fitting end.

    I sort of skim through it, becaues I couldn’t stand to watch her..

    I feel sorry for that women’s family.. she came home after being away, and she flips out and goes nuts on her family. Anyway the whole thing is iffy, because we don’t really know if she choose to accept the money herself or was it like some family decision.

    But yeah, religon aside… she has issues. That’s one horrible example of a “Christian.”

    Quick question. Does anyone else find it interesting that after all that ranting and raving about being a warrior of god, etc. that not only did she keep the money, but she gave ZERO to the church?

    Anon – how do you know? I couldn’t tell from the clip unless I missed something?

    This is why I watch David Letterman. Give me Regis singing cheesy Christmas carols with Donald Trump anyday over the guests Jay Leno had on last night (Rosanne Bar and Trading Spouses lady). I thought this was a new low in ratings pandering for Jay Leno. Ah the late night wars…

    Ha! Letterman isn’t that funny though… I’ve watched maybe twenty times and every single time that stupid Top Ten list has never made me laugh. I’m not a devout Leno watcher either but I love Conan and his irreverant sense of humor. I don’t even know what irreverant means!

    It’s all about the Daily Show with Jon Stewart. 😉

    The Daily Show and The Colbert Report are hilarious…
