Dancers, Determination and a Driving Disaster
Once again, 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.
Client: Valerie Ramirez
Looking for: $31,250
Reason: To offer scholarships through her dance studio with kids in need.
Valerie comes in with her students, which have been with her for the past 6-7
years. Valerie says that they would go from 50-100 kids based on needs. Vanessa
wants to know how the money would go to the kids instead of the bills. Heather,
a dancer, comes up and says that the first scholarship helped both her and her
family finalncially and she breaks down in tears. Valerie says that the money
would last from 1-2 years, and that's a major concern for the panel on why she
can't stretch it longer. Sean says yes due to the compelling testimony from
Heather. Candy will also say yes. Vanessa is less than thrilled, because she
wants to see Valerie struggle to get it, but she'll cave in and say yes. We
don't get Melody's vote, but it's probably also a yes. TRANSACTION: GRANTED
Client: Jean Frazier
Looking for: $11,237
Reason: She wants a car and license. Specifically a 1981 Honda Hatchback Right
Jean has failed it 6 times (uh oh). Her husband has a 1959 Chevrolet. Sean is
very concerned about what Jean is going to do on the road if they give her a
car. Melody, after defending her own driving records. wants to see her earn it.
Sean asks the audience if anyone wants to see her get the car, and we get almost
a unanimous no. The judges all say no, and we have one less threat on the
streets. TRANSACTION: DENIED
Client: Tetris Cedric Kelly
Looking for: $10,000
Reason: He wants head shots, classes, etc. to buff up his talent to be the next
He wants to be an entertainment host. Sean challenges him to interview Melody.
He does a competent job. Candy wants a break down on the money, which is $4,000
for acting classes, $1,000 on head shots and $5,000 on his bills and debt. The
audience thinks $5,000 is too much and turns on him quickly. Sean thinks that
Tetris is going to make it and votes yes. Candy agrees with that and also says
yes. Vanessa did not see a connection with Tetris and votes no. Melody remembers
her struggles and knows the money would be helpful, so she says yes. Tetris gets
the finances by a score of 3-1. TRANSACTION: GRANTED
Client: Ann Belles
Looking for: $73,000
Reason: A wheelchair van
Ann has adopted 50 special needs kids. Her youngest is 6 and the oldest is 31
(just so you know she isn't raising them all at the same time). They need the
wheels to go to places like the prom, etc. She's self-employed and helps adults
with special disabilities to move out on their own. The judges are talking about
it and they are not going to give her $73,000. They are going to give her
$100,000!!! That's for special needs and extra money for the kids. That's a nice
ending. TRANSACTION: GRANTED
Client: Jared Fyduluk
Looking for: $22,395
Reason: To study abroad in Beijing
He does contortions and wants to get to Cirque Do Soliel-type performing.
Apparently, there's a place in Beijing in which you can do this sort of stuff.
Vanessa wants to know if it's too late because of his age, and Jared says it
will be harder, but he knows he can do it - just needs help in Beijing that he
can't do here. Candy says he's too old and says no. Vanessa knows how ghard it
is in Vegas and says yes. Melody is concerned about his age and says no. Sean
says yes and it's tied 2-2. In a tie situation, the panel is deadlocked and they
have to deliberate, with the decision at the end of the show. TRANSACTION:
Client: Ann Marie Davies (and Friends)
Looking for: $3,942.50
Reason: To patent a new type of pole for pole dancing.
They do a demo of the pole and it is impressive. Or maybe I'm just a horny guy.
This is stainless steel with gunk and a new patent. The ladies say that it's in
demand (which it is; I see this stuff at my gym) and they want the money for a
patent. Ann Marie says that they want to invest with other people's money and
not their own, and then tell Sean to read any book by Donald Trump. That's a
HUGE blunder by the ladies as the panel instantly turns on them. The panel
realizes that they can do it by themselves, and hence, they get a quartet of
nos. TRANSACTION: DENIED
Client: Amy Bohanon
Looking for: $4,375
Reason: To chase tornadoes with professional tornado chasers.
Amy, who comes out dressed as Dorothy Gale (heh) is obsessed with tornadoes
since she was in kindergarten. It's $2,600 for the tour, and money for the
digital camera, tour, food, expenses and taxes. Sean says it's not a lot of
money, and she smartly itemized everything, so he's going to say yes. Candy says
to follow the Tornado and says yes. Vanessa says no, but Melody says yes, and we
have a Amy going down the yellow brick road. TRANSACTION: GRANTED
Back to Jared and his contortions. It's age vs. dreams, and age wins. Jared says
that he will do it himself. He adds that if the panel wants to be stingy, that's
their business, but he will get there. It's a little sour-grapish, but I
understand where he's coming from, as I don't think 24 is too old and the panel
may have had a little ageism discrimination. TRANSACTION: DENIED
That's it for this episode. a new hour of pandering starts next week.
