They Make How Much?
Does your neighbor seem to have it all? Does another neighbor never buy a new car and pinch pennies? Can you guess what their monthly income might be? The truth might surprise you! As two reporters investigate the target family, studio panelists must try to guess the family’s monthly income. The size of the house, type of car, hobbies, food preferences—it’s all fair game in the investigation. The panelist who comes closest in estimating the amount gets a small treat.
