Everyone has dreamed of getting rich, and Cuban will help one lucky person attain that goal. The Benefactor isn't a traditional contest. Cuban will make his choice by putting the contestants through a series of tests, based on his life experiences, to determine who has what it takes to be successful. All the tests are designed to show the values and characteristics that Cuban feels are important — creativity, competitiveness and an entrepreneurial spirit. Cuban knows exactly what he is looking for. Which one of the 16 contestants has it? Of course there will be many surprises for the contestants along the way. Unlike other reality shows, Cuban will not wait until the end of each telecast to eliminate contestants who don't live up to his expectations. Contestants will find that at any time during the game, if Cuban doesn't like something, he may tell them, "Sorry, your million dollar dream just ended."
