Mark Cuban Reality Show

Yikes! The insane owner of the most wonderful basketball team ever with a forward/center from Germany is getting his own reality tv show. The show is called “The Benefactor” and he gives away 1 million dollars to the winner.

I want some of that Mark Cuban money. I wonder if I applied to get on the show, would I get bonus points for owning a Dirk Nowitzki bobblehead? I mean, as a librarian, this would be the only way I would ever get 1 million dollars. How much would get eaten up by taxes?
