"Episode 8" - March 1

Last night, Cheryl Jackson started off strong, turning down a deal for $172,000, only to come away with five dollars after turning down a deal from the banker for $2. Tonight, Mark Adrian, a doctor from San Diego, continues his quest toward $1.5 million, up from the usual $1 million we try to give away a night.

But first, another reminder. Tonight, the show will sweeten the pot AGAIN with a top prize of $2,000,000! That will take effect with our next contestant...

But back to Mark. This is how the board looked as we closed the last show...

3 TO OPEN

 

$ .01 $ 1,000
$ 1 $ 5,000
$ 5 $ 10,000
$ 10 $ 25,000
$ 25 $ 50,000
$ 50 $ 75,000
$ 75 $ 100,000
$ 100 $ 200,000
$ 200 $ 300,000
$ 300 $ 400,000
$ 400 $ 500,000
$ 500 $ 1,000,000
$ 750
$ 1,500,000

As you can see, three of the heavy seven are still in play, including $1.5 million, with a 27 percent chance of him holding at least $100,000 in case #13.

Eleven cases remaining... Three to open. Let's play.

Case 17 (Donna) $100,000
Case 9 (Marisa) $10,000
Case 2 (Stacey) $10

That's more like it!

The banker makes his first offer of the night...

BANK OFFER
$76,000

 

$ .01 $ 1,000
$ 1 $ 5,000
$ 5 $ 10,000
$ 10 $ 25,000
$ 25 $ 50,000
$ 50 $ 75,000
$ 75 $ 100,000
$ 100 $ 200,000
$ 200 $ 300,000
$ 300 $ 400,000
$ 400 $ 500,000
$ 500 $ 1,000,000
$ 750
$ 1,500,000

Walt & Manny (Mark's brothers) think that the bank is lowballing the offer... The question to Mark... "Deal or no deal?" Mark is still holding the button... Closing it! No deal!

Two to open...

Case 14 (Mylinda) $5
Case 6 (Megan) $50,000

It's still okay, because the big money is still on the board, and the banker knows this. Therefore, he offers... to Walt... who offers it to Mark....

BANK OFFER
$140,000

 

$ .01 $ 1,000
$ 1 $ 5,000
$ 5 $ 10,000
$ 10 $ 25,000
$ 25 $ 50,000
$ 50 $ 75,000
$ 75 $ 100,000
$ 100 $ 200,000
$ 200 $ 300,000
$ 300 $ 400,000
$ 400 $ 500,000
$ 500 $ 1,000,000
$ 750
$ 1,500,000

We need a commercial break... This would wipe Mark's student loans off the chart. Manny tells him that there's only one case to pick in the next round...

NO DEAL! One to go...

Case 12 (Jill) Landmine....

$1,500,000

You know the banker's gotta be rubbing his hands in glee right now. He rings in with... "Thank you, doctor. I'm feeling better."

BANK OFFER
$41,000

 

$ .01 $ 1,000
$ 1 $ 5,000
$ 5 $ 10,000
$ 10 $ 25,000
$ 25 $ 50,000
$ 50 $ 75,000
$ 75 $ 100,000
$ 100 $ 200,000
$ 200 $ 300,000
$ 300 $ 400,000
$ 400 $ 500,000
$ 500 $ 1,000,000
$ 750 $ 1,500,000

Down almost $100,000. Manny says "Go for it," while the others say "Deal." Mark... "No deal."

One to go...

Case 11 (Katie) Katie says she'll do her best...

$300 is good...

The bank offer goes back up to the question...

BANK OFFER
$64,000

 

$ .01 $ 1,000
$ 1 $ 5,000
$ 5 $ 10,000
$ 10 $ 25,000
$ 25 $ 50,000
$ 50 $ 75,000
$ 75 $ 100,000
$ 100 $ 200,000
$ 200 $ 300,000
$ 300 $ 400,000
$ 400 $ 500,000
$ 500 $ 1,000,000
$ 750 $ 1,500,000

With one case to open next, will Mark take the money and run? There's a 25 percent chance that Mark is holding $300,000. The crowd says no... Mark says yes. Deal for $64,000!

Had he continued, he would've revealed $1000, and gotten a bank offer for $90,000. Then, a reveal of $300,000. Needless to say, $50 for $64,000 is a great deal.

New round, board is reset, the values are reshuffled, and new player is ready. Here comes... Cindy Pridgen! She's from San Diego, and she's a homemaker, because she recently got fired... Long story, and this is a family show, SO...

She will not be playing for $1 million... She won't be playing for $1.5 million. Tonight, Howie is rolling out the big bucks... $2 million! Your new board is...

Now it may be time to think... Mike says to push the button. Cindy's a wreck right now... She pushes! Deal for $407,000! We have a new record tonight!

But, had she went on, she would've revealed... $5. The bank's offer then... $692,000. Then she would've revealed $75,000, driving the bank offer to $1,000,000. So what was in #9?

Only 75. She made a terrific deal!

Okay, the board is reset yet again. Time for a new player. Here comes Sherman Mitchell, a single father of an 11-year-old. He works with criminal rehabilitation. But let's see some monetary rehabilitation today. He's playing for $2 mill also...
