Here’s How Much Contestants On ‘The Amazing Race’ Make

This article originally appeared and was published on AOL.com

If you’re an adventure seeker and a lover of reality TV, then you’ve probably considered applying for Amazing Race at some point in your life. From contestants uncovering clues in a rat-infested Indian labyrinth to diving into an ice river and swimming to an exit hole, the show is filled with action and suspense.

While the intense challenges and country hopping are two encouraging reasons to be on the show, the payout each season’s winner receives is a great incentive, too. Each season, the first two-person team to fully complete the last challenge wins $1 million — but they aren’t the only contestants who make money.

via GIPHY

According to fan site TARflies, Aaron from season 6 of the show revealed that the second place team took home $25,000 and the third place team took home $10,000. Aaron went on to explain that every team earned money — the team that came in dead last actually went home with $1,500.

Cash prizes isn’t the only compensation, either. Contestants can receive anything from a new car to paid trips to any country in the world. The only catch to receiving the prizes is that the winners must claim them on their federal income tax returns.

Daniel Radcliffe Wore Bear-Feet, Boxers And Was Twirling Guns Around In A Movie Shoot And Twitter Had A Field Day

Daniel Radcliffe is as important to film history as any actor ever. Go ahead @ me, you know I’m right. After becoming famous from being Harry Potter, Radcliffe has been cast in a wide array of different flicks.

He has a new film he’s in called “Guns Akimbo” and someone took a few pics of him while shooting this action comedy. Too bad he didn’t have Guns Akimbo when he had to fight Voldemort, right?!

Well Twitter has been ablaze with memes, inter-splicing Potter theory with guns, and I hope they never stop. Here are the best 19 tweets out there. Honestly can we have just one more Radcliffe starring Potter movie?!

Donald Trump Weighed In On The Laurel Or Yanny Meme And It Was The Most Cringeworthy Video Ever

Guys I don’t like to use clickbait in my titles. It’s not fun and I don’t like to mislead you my fine reader. By the way since we are breaking the fourth wall, let me just say how beautiful you look today.

Anyways this is at least the most cringeworthy thing you will see all week. Remember when the Mannequin Challenge was a thing? It was all the craze and even Hillary Clinton got in on the action.

The problem was, they did it wrong. And that’s where we find ourselves today. As the mannequin challenge was to November of 2016, we now have #LaurelVsYanny in May of 2018. You thought I would compare it to the dress, but nope not this time!

I hear Laurel, my girlfriend hears Yanny and you won’t guess what Donald Trump’s answer was.

via GIPHY

I really wish that was a joke but sadly it was not.

I hope you were at a loss of words as was I, thankfully we have Twitter to voice our thoughts:

Someone else commented:

“The White House did the laurel/yanny video and Donald Trump literally said ‘I hear covfefe.'”

Wow I really hate him.”

If you haven’t weighted in on the debate, take a second to now:

[interaction id=”5afc3b3ff9ffeb53dbd2ff59″]

Alright now that you have had time to process a little bit of that. Let’s take a look at some of the notable people’s responses:

Ivanka Trump:

It’s so clearly Laurel! [Cackle]

Kelly Anne Conway:

It’s Laurel, but I could deflect and divert to Yanny if you need me to.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders:

random dude: Sarah, it’s been reported you hear ‘Laurel.’ How do you respond?

Sarah: Clearly you’re getting your information from CNN because that’s Fake News. Ahhhh, all I hear is Yanny.

I honestly don’t know who this dude is, but I didn’t really care. I just thought his face was too crazy not to screen shot:

Random guy:

It’s, it’s Laurel America. DEFINITELY HASHTAG LAUREL

Mike Pence:

Who’s Yanny?

And of course ladies and gentleman, your President of the United States:

I hear covfefe.

Image Via Youtube

Just when everyone had stopped ironically saying covfefe (no spellcheck, that’s what I meant) Trump had to bring it back.

The answer is still nobody, since it’s not a word…

When I had first seen that this was a thing, I figured eh probably some Late Night Show spoof. That’s something Stephen Colbert would do, right? I guess the actual show writers just have to sit back and wait for things like this to fall into their lap.

This Artist Recreated Your Favorite Marvel Characters Into Cartoon Characters And They Are Incredible

If you haven’t seen Avengers: Infinity War, you need to stop what you are doing and get to your nearest theater. It’s already the highest grossing super hero movie of all time, Black Panther held that record quite briefly.

But don’t worry, this post isn’t filled with any spoilers and Thanos isn’t even involved. What is involved is Xi Ding who is one of the best artists I’ve ever seen. I don’t get why this guy isn’t working for Marvel at this point. Give him his own show to animate, because I’d watch it.

Ding has done other characters for shows such as Stranger Things, Star Wars and other random celebs.

Rick And Morty Creator Justin Roiland Just Confirmed That We Are Getting Way More Than Just One More Season

Guys this is not a drill! While we still have to repeatedly watch reruns for the awhile, we do have confirmation that there are new Rick And Morty episodes in our future. Now whether that’s in the near or far future, we do not know.

via GIPHY

The shows co-creator, Justin Roiland, tweeted out earlier today (May 10) that we have an amazing amount of SEVENTY MORE EPISODES left in the tank for Rick And Morty.

And he wasn’t lying when he was waiting for the tweets to verify if this was real. Rick And Morty fans don’t mess around when new episodes are rumored and they came in the bunches:

Then Alex Hirsh, who works on Gravity Falls (which there are a lot of theories that Gravity Falls is within the Rick And Morty universe) verified the claims to a fan.

If all this is true we may have to wait at least another year for season four to come out, but you never know when a random episode could be released. This past April Fools day we got a teaser of a season four with Bushworld Adventures which was an acid trip of a parody episode of Rick And Morty. If you haven’t watched it, you really need to.

As I said, don’t hold your breath for new episodes anytime soon. Ryan Ridley, who is one of the shows head writers and random voices told Hypebeast back in January:

“They really take their time. I never understood why everybody — all parties, Dan, Justin, and Adult Swim — didn’t get their shit together, and make the show fast. I just don’t get it. It doesn’t make any sense to me. I’m sure they all have their reasons.

I know how long this show takes to write, let alone animate. I’d be surprised if there was a fourth season on the air anytime sooner than 2019… late 2019. Get your shit together, you guys. Get it all together, and put it in a backpack.”

via GIPHY

If just the drawing wasn’t enough to excite you both creators, Roiland and Dan Harmon announced that they needed to get back back to the work place in a video on Instagram.

Nothing this big has ever been seen in my shower

A post shared by Dan Harmon (@danharmon) on

Harmon had also let people know earlier in the year that he had no idea when they would be back on Adult Swim saying to Entertainment Weekly:

“I’m still learning how to do the show efficiently while catering to the perfectionist in all of us. I would like to think I’ve learned enough from my mistakes in season 3 that we could definitely do 14 now, but then I have to say, ‘Yeah but you’re the guy who says we can do 14 who turned out to be wrong so we’re not listening to you now.’

The nice healthy way to approach this is I want to prove it with the first 10 [episodes] of season four — prove it to ourselves, to production, to the network — that it’s so easy that we’ll earn additional episodes. Because I never got this far [working on NBC’s] Community. I fell apart in season three of Community and got fired in season four. Now I’m about to do season four of Rick and Morty and want to prove that I’ve grown.”

So that’s that. We have 70 episodes of Rick And Morty in our universe. Other’s may have more and others may have less, but at least we have (potentially) seven more Morty adventures if he gets his way.

Seriously, How Many Girls Are There In This Picture?

This article originally appeared and was published on AOL.com

We hate to drag you into this right now, we really do — especially considering you might not have even recovered from #thedress and #thejacket yet.

But we really cannot suffer through this trauma alone.

Instagram user @tizzia recently uploaded a photo to the popular photo-sharing app that has the Internet in a tizzy.

The question is simple: How many girls are in this photo?

The answer, however, is anything but.

While you may be quick to answer that there are clearly two girls depicted in the image, a closer examination of their bracelets (and their “reflection’s” bracelets) might make you start to second guess yourself.

Then, maybe you’ll start to see four girls … or six …

Before you know it, the very fabric of reality is being torn in two right before your eyes.

What do you think?
