Considering they pay an 1800 entry fee, have at a minimum 3 nights of lodging if they don't practice it ain't that good! The guys from 21-40 aren't doing much other than breaking even.

I think he was referring to the winner.

How many times did the winner lose before he won the $50k? That’s the question.


It's only a good cast if you catch a fish...

If you haven't figured out by now that this game isn't a money making venture when it comes to the actual tournament payouts vs expenses, then you might need to go back to 5th grade math.

That doesn't stop people from competing, at any level.

I dont think BASS is going to sell after grossing 130k for one tournament.

They didn't gross anywhere close to that. Out of that 130,000 they have to pay all the employees. The cost of getting all the equipment there and all the other miscellaneous expenses

I know this is the internet where everyone is making 200-250k or more a year....but normal folks in the real world are making about 50k a year. So yeah, 50k for a weekend pretty good.

Im not a finance guy and could be wrong, but I thought gross was the over all amount and net would be after all expenses.

No worries, and I agree, after expenses their net was way less.
