Best Answer

Of the three contestants, the one who finishes with the most money wins the game and gets to keep the money. The contestant who finishes in second place receives $2000 and the third place finisher receives $1000. The winner of the show gets to return to play two new challengers. If the returning champion wins, that day's winnings are added to his previous winnings. If he finishes in second place, he receives $2000 for that game in addition to his previous winnings, if he finishes in third place, he receives $1000 plus previous winnings.
