"Episode 13" - March 13

Last time, we saw Kim Woods turn $5,000 into $50,000... and we saw Eric Paulsen turn a penny into $19,000.

What kind of parlor tricks will we see this week? Let's get it started with... Bryan Thompson! Bryan's a recently-elected mayor of Brunswick, GA, and he proves it by presenting Howie with the key to the city of Brunswick, GA... which also serves as a bottle opener! His platform... well, it's something.

Our platform... making Mayor Bryan a millionaire! He begins by picking a case... He picks 17, escorted by the lovely Jenelle...

?

Bryan's Case
17

From there, we begin the picking with six...

Case 16 (Kim) $100
Case 10 (Anya) OOOH!!

Bryan: Get one big one out of the way right now.

Case 20 (Tamara) $400

Bryan: That's the one I meant to get before!

Case 5 (Ursula) $75,000

Bryan: Marginal.

Case 22 (Donna) $25
Case 15 (Lanisha) $100,000

Three from each side... gone. Let's see what the banker has to say about it...

Bryan brought his "honorary council of citizens" to help. They are Heather (wife), LaVerne (on the board of directors), Jack (small-business owner), and Bea (another council member). They all say... no. He was elected in a landslide by listening to the people... and the people say "No Deal".

Three cases left to open. Heather says it could fix her bathroom. Howie thinks that the voters should have a hand in this... so we're going via satellite to Brunswick, GA to see what the town thinks (because Howie is up there with Chuck Norris in having super powers). They all say "NO DEAL!"

Bryan: "I'm gonna have to go with my constituents on this. No deal!"

"No deal!" One to open...

There's a 20% chance at Bryan having half a mill... Will he take that chance? Heather... "That's a lot of money." She wants to see that much money go to Brunswick. The shock of that million going away... wasn't enough. No deal. One to open.

2-0-2... His highest amount... Will he take it? Heather says take the deal... Campaign manager says he needs at least $500,000. The town says deal! Bryan takes the advice.. of his wife. Deal for $202,000!

But did he do the right thing? How good of a deal did Bryan make? He picks 12 next... $500 gone. The bank offer would have been... "D'oh!" $300,000. In Bryan's case...

$50,000

Bryan's Case
17

A terrific deal!  Aubrie had the $500,000. The toast of Brunswick, GA, tonight, is Mayor Thompson, who turned $50,000 into $202,000.

But we still have time left on the clock, so let's shuffle the money, light up the board, and play again... Next on Howie's list is... Cathy Hamm!

Cathy is a flight attendant from Dallas and is referred to as "The Spam Queen"... The canned type, not the e-mail type. She won the National Grand Spam Recipe Contest. Maybe she'll take away some money in our own aluminum casings.. maybe $1 million worth of Spam, eh? 

She picks 11, which Katie brings down.

?

Cathy's Case
11

And then opens six...

Case 7 (Sara) $25

Then Howie knocks Katie's case down... needs to be in the overhead...

Case 4 (Lindsey) $100
Case 5 (Ursula) $5
Case 2 (Stacey) $400
Case 12 (Jill) $10
Case 6 (Megan) $25,000

Not bad compared to the damage she did with the left board... Let's see what the banker says...

$ 5 $ 10,000

Case 1 (Claudia) Fakeout...
