And the next day someone who watched the show breaks into her house and steals all, because she is dumb as a box of rocks and has them sitting out on the table in her white trash trailer

Personally, I`d be really, really happy, but also a tiny bit reluctant to get TOO excited.

Just because they`re *worth* that much is no guarentee someone will actually come along who`ll pay that much for them (apart from maybe a museum). A lot of times, auctions don`t even do half as good as they`re estimated to.

It just depends. You kind of have to get lucky.

It doesn`t have to be fake at all.

It could be quite shocking to be told that, but that doesn`t mean she should jump around going "Oh mah Gard Oh Mah Gard" like most middle aged American women seem to on TV shows.

For all you know she might be very well off already and an extra million is a bonus but not life changing - after all, she already said she knew the big snot bowl was worth quite a lot.

This has to be fake, she doesn`t look like she even cares that she is going to earn 1 million dollars.

@Everyone, what you see on gameshows is rigged. I`ve been to one. They give something to the contestants, I`m sure of it...

Most people will react like her, in more of a shock way then a 4-month-old-puppy-on-crack way. If I won a million dollars, I`d probably freeze up for a few seconds then say "Wow. That`s neat.".

In reality it`s worth 10 million but the guy is just trying to screw her over. It`s not from the 1700`s it`s an ancient artifact of god-like powers.

... I would crap myself if that guy said the random stuff in my attic was worth that much. She seemed like the guy gave her a free medium fry coupon for mcdonalds.

I was thinking the same thing...one day 200 and something years ago a powerful emperor owned that bowel and now...well, now the head to the local PTA owns it and probably kept it next to the pottery material...

Duffy, if you actually watched the show you`d know that people often say "well I was offered some money for it" or "it was appraised for some money some years ago." And sometimes they answer "I dunno maybe $1000?" It`s not a stupid question.

Actually they only sold for about half a million. But it turns out she had about 30 other pieces just like it and she ended up making $2 million.

Did you ever think that one of these pieces were made specifically for an emperor and now it`s in the hands of *this* person. Crazy how the world works.

Blah blah blah - answer is $710,000 to $1,070,000.
Then the idiot says "Tell us how you feel".
And, of course, the appraiser asks if she knows what it`s worth. IF SHE KNEW WHAT IT WAS WORTH, SHE WOULDN`T BE THERE.

I found it on eBay and it`s selling rather cheap if the items are worth that much.

I didn`t know they did Antiques Roadshow in the US too! That`s pretty cool.

Bit of an emphasis on the money though from the clips I`ve seen. The original British version doesnt put the amount up on screen afterwards, heh.

her reaction: "DAMN" yeah, thats what I would`ve said.

I also agree with what she SAID she wanted to do which is keep them, if they`re worth that much now, imagine what it would be worth in 25-50 years; if you have an ok life now, don`t go ruining it with too much money. her brother is probably a drunk-pot head and sold them and blew all his money...I know the type

Also:
"they only sold for a little less then 500k"

My grandmother watches this show religiously. It`s really cool. I get jealous easily though.

I can`t believe there`s any question about selling these things. Am I evil for saying that a price tag that high trumps any possible amount of sentimental value I have for anything?

It`s amazing how people on other game shows will scream and jump about when they`ve won 10 grand, but this woman could not have been more underwhelmed to find she`s sitting on 1 million.
