That wouldn't pay for the food. I am SO SO SO desperate for money now, but that is simply not enough to give you resources to live on while you gain, then lose. Obviously, I couldn't go anywhere, because I would have NO clothes. I would do a lot of crazy things for money now - out of sheer frantic need. I AM a risk taker. But there's no profit here. You would not break even, and that's certainly no advantage.
I'm not at maintenance weight, but I'll echo what the others have said. $10K is not enough money to so something so difficult. I *Might* gain weight for a million or so because then I could afford a "fat camp" to go to so I could get it off.

$10,000 isn't that much money. I could easily earn that by picking up a second job on the weekend for a few months. No way. Not for ten thousand, not for a hundred thousand, and probably not for a million either (as I suspect that gaining that much weight would seriously impact my ability to perform my job and advance in my career, and my future earning potential is way more than just a million bucks).

Absolutely not! Imagine how much extra $$$ you would have to spend on food to even get there.

No way !
It's so easy to gain weight and be out of shape, it's much more difficult to drop the weight and get back on track. It's a lot simpler to remain eating a healthy diet and sticking to a routine of exercise.

no way!! I feel great at a 23 pound weight loss I could not imagine putting my life at risk to gain weight to try and loose it again. I bust my but everyday to see these pounds shred one day at a time and could not imagine trying to gain it for money!

Never- this question may have the person needing dentist assistance because I offered the answer via my fist..
Money isn't worth risking my health again....it has been very challenging to get this far.

The only way I would even think about gaining that much weight is I would have to starve myself to get to a super light weight for the starting weight and even then it would have to be for more money for me to even consider it. Just being 50lbs heavier than I am now had me feeling so bad about myself...not only the way I looked but the way I felt also... It is not worth it to be overweight.
actors do weight gains/losses all the time for various roles. Toni Collette swore she'd never do it again after Muriel's Wedding, but she let Curtis Hanson talk her into gaining a few lbs for In Her Shoes. I think she dropped the weight while filming (her character lost weight in the movie).
Renee Zellweger gained weight to play Bridget Jones. Tom Hanks gained and lost a lot of weight for Castaway.
all of them can afford the personal trainers and a chef to help them get back in shape. They are also normally thin folks. And they didn't gain 100 lbs. I think it would be much more difficult to convice a heavier person who'd finally managed to get the weight off to gain it back!

Hell to the no!
Considering how much extra food I'd need to buy in addition to more clothing in big sizes, $10k just wouldn't cut it. Plus the long term effects on my health could be priceless.
