- A Fool and His New Money Are Soon Parted: Defied. You'd think a family that suddenly became rich due to the reality show they're on would spend that money like there's no tomorrow. Surprisingly, June (the mother) splits the $20K paycheck per-episode among her four daughters, the money of which is place in a trust fund that none of the daughters can touch until they're 21 years old, unless it's to pay for school.
