The Money Game was originally co-hosted by Dave Ramsey and Roy Matlock. The pair's philosophy ran parallel to each other with one exception. Roy Matlock always said; invest, invest, and invest your money whether or not the bills were paid, where as Dave Ramsey has always said to pay off your bills and then if you have money left to invest, do so.
Getting your house paid for as soon as possible has always been at the top of Dave's to do list. Over the years this differing philosophy created many friendly on-air debate's between the two.
