"Episode 10" - March 3

Last night, Sherman Mitchell took the bank for $250,000, while new contestant Becky Venable, a stay-at-home mom from Oxford, CT, knocked out $2.5 million. How much will she end up taking? This is how the board looked as we closed the last show...

BANK OFFER
$74,000

 

$ .01 $ 1,000
$ 1 $ 5,000
$ 5 $ 10,000
$ 10 $ 25,000
$ 25 $ 50,000

$ 400 $ 750,000
$ 500 $ 1,000,000
$ 750 $ 2,500,000

So far, she's knocked out 12 cases including the $2.5 million case. She now faces a bank offer of $74,000. Deal... or No Deal? Becky's girls say "No deal!" Two to open.

Case 1 (Claudia) They thought that 7 was lucky... they were wrong.

$1,000,000

Case 20 (Ingrid) Fakeout...

$200

There's the banker... The offer goes down a bit...

BANK OFFER
$66,000

 

$ .01 $ 1,000

$ 5 $ 10,000
$ 10 $ 25,000
$ 25 $ 50,000

$ 400 $ 750,000
$ 500 $ 1,000,000
$ 750 $ 2,500,000

If Becky doesn't take it, there's a one-in-three chance that she'll hit a big amount next time. The most conservative woman in the world is saying "No deal", so that's what Becky's going with.

One to open...

Case 8 (Tamara) $10,000

Really good... The banker's offer goes up this time...

BANK OFFER

$ .01 $ 1,000

$ 400 $ 750,000
$ 500 $ 1,000,000
$ 750 $ 2,500,000

There's a 40 percent chance that Becky is sitting on at least a quarter-mill. Husband says "Gamble." Becky says... No deal! One to go...

Case 3 (Lisa) After Howie throws it to break....

$500,000

Banker calls without delay. He says you should take this...

BANK OFFER
$65,000

 

$ .01 $ 1,000
$ 1 $ 5,000
$ 5 $ 10,000

$ 400 $ 750,000
$ 500 $ 1,000,000
$ 750 $ 2,500,000

There's a 75 percent chance that Becky is not holding $250,000. Even so... NO DEAL! One to go...

Case 10 (Patricia) Please $75...

$50,000

But that's okay. Here's the banker...

BANK OFFER
$85,000

 

$ .01 $ 1,000
$ 1 $ 5,000
$ 5 $ 10,000
$ 10 $ 25,000

$ 400 $ 750,000
$ 500 $ 1,000,000
$ 750 $ 2,500,000

One-in-four chance that Becky will knock out $250,000 in her next pick... She wouldn't hear the end of it if she left with $5 or $75, so she... TAKES IT! Deal for $85,000!

But what would happen if she went on? She would've revealed... $250,000! She made a great deal! Her case was only $75.

The board is reset, and the suitcases are back in play. New player is... Joe Pacheco! He's married with two daughters. Aside from insurance, he's a coach, and his team is with him today. He's wearing his lucky socks... and they're about to work big time... Because tonight, instead of $1 million... he's playing for $3 million! Not only that... He could win as little.... as THREE cents!  The board is also changed to reflect this...
