The Amazing Race has said they spend around $2M on air travel alone each season.
Wow, it's that much,huh? I figured it would be a lot, but not that much. this doesn't even factor in such stuff as hotels and meals for all, and cabs, etc.
Per my previous post, any guesses as to how much staff Survivor has on location behind-the-scenes? Cameramen and sound alone must be a few, plus relief.
