Now that the America Got Talent (AGT) is over, Dustin Tayella, will the winner of season 16 be going home with $1 million dollars? The answer is a big NO.
The magic world was elevated to the biggest high of all time, as after Dustin Tayella, a 35-year-old was declared the winner of the competition. He won by performing the art of magic.
However, it is imported to know that the winner of the AGT does not go home with $1 million dollars as they announce on the show. And nothing even close. The winner only goes home with cash prize of $300,000 (before taxes) immediately or have to choose the other option of $25,000 every year for 40 years. It is not easy to wait 40 years to get part of your earnings from a show in 2021 when you aren’t sure if one can live that long.
However, one of the beautiful things of winning an AGT is that you will have other rewards like been on air for fifteen years and potential to become popular almost immediately and then been able to sign into of deals.
