HOW TO WIN TAKE THE MONEY AND RUN ALMOST!
RAUL BUSTAMANTE, ONE OF THE BROTHERS FROM THE FIRST EPISODE OF TAKE THE MONEY AND RUN, GIVES A GREAT POST SHOW INTERVIEW AND EXPLAINS IT ALL OVER AT THE TUMBLER TAKE THE MONEY AND RUN #1 FAN SITE . . .
PER TAKE THE MONEY AND RUN #1 FAN SITE:
Tell me about how you found out about the show, what drew you to TTMAR, and the casting process.
I ran across a casting online for the show that asked for teams of two that knew San Francisco like the back of their hand. So I immediately thought of my brother Paul who spends a good amount of time in the city. I knew San Francisco as well because I had spent a lot of time there due to my acting and modeling career. Not knowing much about I just thought it would be fun to something with my brother possibly on camera. He had actually visited me on set before and he has directed me in some shorts of his so I thought it would be a great experience for both of us.
Talk to me about the rules - are there more than the following?
■ Contestants must stay together while hiding the briefcase
■ Contestants must use the vehicle. They can park it and walk somewhere.
■ They can use pay phones.
■ Detectives get GPS information tracking the vehicle, cell phone records.
■ The briefcase must be hidden somewhere accessible 24 hours a day.
■ Anyone the contestants use to hide the money must be accessible by detectives.
■ All questions must be answered, but both sides are expected to lie and do their best to deceive the other.
■ Contestants are not allowed to leave the cell.
A couple to add would be:
1.We were only allowed to sleep 5 hours per 24 hour period.
2.Paul and I weren’t allowed contact with each other until the 60 min started (so we had to decide where to hide the case on the fly).
3.The case could not be hidden in dumpsters,on a moving transportation (cabs, bart, buses, trains, etc.) and could not be hidden under bridges.
Did the cameramen act as on-the-fly rule instructors? Could you turn to them and ask, “Am I allowed to …”
No, not at all. They actually weren’t allowed to help or speak to us what so ever. We each had a long sit down with production the night before to go over the contract and rules of the game. That was the only time we were allowed to asked questions about the game and how it was allowed to be played.
