Boy Wonder, Balloon Maker, and a Big Request
December 14

Welcome to the Bank of Hollywood. Your panel is comprised of Candy Spelling (wife of the late Aaron Spelling), Vanessa Rousso (Poker Player), Melody Thornton (Pussycat Doll) and Sean Patterson (Wilhelmina Models president). Bryan Callen is the host.

Clients: Sabrina Terry / Robert Terry
Looking for: $8,750
Reason: Allowing him to represent the USA at the World Tap Finals (Tap Olympics) in Germany.

Robert gives us some moves, and for an 8 year old, he's pretty good. He gets 3 quick yes's (and I'm guessing Vanessa would have been a 4th Yes) and we have our first donation. TRANSACTION: GRANTED

Clients: Michael Cantrovich and Stephanie Haslem
Looking for: $75,000
Reason: Dream Wedding

Michael and Stephanie got laid off and Stephanie had surgery, and they've been helping with bills. They've been together for 2.5 years and haven't been engaged yet. Uh oh. They show pictures of where they want to be married and the dress. The 4 stars believe that having an expensive wedding doesn't make you happy, and the money would be better off used elsewhere. We get 3 Nos and that's enough. TRANSACTION: DENIED

Client: Debi Carideo
Looking for: $31,987.50
Reason: To get her daughter commercial pilot's license

Debi offers 50% of it, and she's asking not for her sake, but for her daughter. She wants to work for the California Forest Service, and she's currently getting her license in Puerto Rico. Her mom has been doing this by herself (her father passed away when she was 4) and mom gets a video from her daughter, care of the show. AwwwwBarf. However, Debi has already sunk $26,000 worth in scams for her daughter, and Sean is worried that she will invest the money again in a bad scheme. The panel has bring her back at the end of the show and ask some more questions. TRANSACTION: TABLED

Client: Cheryl Martin
Looking for: $84,000
Reason: To follow Madonna around the world and giving back to the community.

The panel gets to give her money to go to each city within the tour. She's going to be giving the value of a ticket to local charities, but she's not going to go to all the concerts. Once the panel hears that she's not going to go to all the concerts, it's a quick set of no's, and Sean says that she doesn't have 'Like a Prayer' of a chance. TRANSACTION: DENIED

Client: Timothy Wilcox
Looking for: $21,425.00
Reason: To compete and win the Miss Gay U.S. of A at Large pageant

Timothy / LaTrice Royale does an interesting showcase for the judges, and then explains the money needs to go clothing (large sized clothes are made), his dancers, food, travel, etc. He was arrested for 18 months (drugs + driving is bad, kids) and lost his mother in the process. He rebuilt his life and according to him, it's not how you fall, it's how you get up. Timothy said that he would compete, regardless of the money, and that's a bad thing to say, because that gets a no from Candy. Melody says yes. Sean says he would have said yes to $10,000, but he will say no only because of the amount. Vanessa agrees, and it's 3-1 No. I blame the ignorance of the judges on this one - but also on Timothy who didn't justify the high cost. TRANSACTION: DENIED

Client: Drew Pokorny
Looking for: $12,500.00
Reason: To take his mom on a European Cruise.

The money goes on a 10 day cruise to go through Italy and to the U.K. He's a dog trainer and owns his own business. His mom has gone through chemo twice and he doesn't know how much longer she has to live. Vanessa says she wants to see him earn it, but Sean knows that time is of the essence and for that reason, he says yes. Melody says yes, as does Candy, so despite Vanessa's no, Drew gets to go, 3-1. TRANSACTION: GRANTED

Client: Spencer Mroz
Looking for: $93,750
Reason: Swimming Pool

Brandon, who's in a wheelchair, can use his legs in the water and he wants to be able to move again. He was hit by a drunk driver and was paralyzed from the waist down. He uses aqua therapy at the swim club, but that's only a few times a week, vs. if he had the pool, he can train himself all the time. His dad comes up from the stage and they both start crying over his accident. He gets 4 yes's and with a lot of tears from the judges. Aw. TRANSACTION: GRANTED

Client: Jason Gadino (J.J. The Balloon Guy)
Looking for: $15,000
Reason: To go on a children's hospital tour making balloon animals for sick kids.

Jason uses the money to cover expenses, and wants to go to the 10 biggest children's hospitals in America. He went to a children's hospital and made a balloon teddy bear to a kid, who was very happy about it. Jason says that he needs it, and as a full time balloon artist, he needs to do this to make children happy because it makes him happy. He gets a unanimous yes from the panel and it's off to the hospitals he goes. TRANSACTION: GRANTED

Finally, it's back to Debi Carideo and her daughter's pilot's license. They have decided to give them the money... BUT... they will write the check directly to the flight school. Debi doesn't have a problem and everyone is happy. And Debi gets another reward as she sees her daughter, who gets to come over and hug her. Everyone is happy. AwwwwBarf.
