"Episode 25" - April 17

Last time, 26 Miss USA hopefuls bore witness to Bryan Kennedy, a professional clown, as he made a woman out of his girlfriend by proposing to her, and a woman out of the banker by taking him for $301,000. Will fortune favor the bold this go around?

Let's see as ERIN BIRCH takes her perch. Erin is a 28-year-old fundraiser for Special Olympics of Nashville, TN. She will give half of whatever she wins to that cause. So we're really rooting for her.

She's also playing for her... rabbit.

She chooses case number 11, for her birthday, 11/11. And Patricia delivers said case.

?

Erin's Case
11

Last time, this case only had $25. What about now?

Case 15 (Lanisha) $50,000
Case 14 (Krisi) $200,000
Case 4 (Lindsay S) $5
Case 9 (Mylinda) $400,000
Case 22 (Julee) $10,000
Case 3 (Lisa) $75,000

Not a particularly good round, but there's more of a chance of opening the left side up next round. Something the banker has noticed. To this end, the banker has made this offer of...

BANK OFFER
$8,000

 

$ .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 $ 750,000
$ 750 $ 1,000,000

It's either $8000 or another five cases opened. Deal or No Deal? Erin knows better... No deal.

Five to open.

Case 17 (Jenelle) $400
Case 5 (Ursula) $750
Case 19 (April) $1,000,000

"That's not what I wanted to see."
Case 7 (Sara) $200
Case 25 (Sonia) $50

That million will factor into the banker's next offer, as will the other smaller amounts.

$ 5 $ 10,000

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

The crowd disapproves. Helping Erin here is Travis (husband), Doc (big brother), and Joanne (coworker/friend). What do they say? They say "no deal"... "No deal!"

Four to open.

Doc: "January 8th, Elvis' birthday." Pilar: "Long live the King."

$300,000

Howie: "Apparently, Elvis has left the building."

Case 6 (Megan) $5,000
Case 13 (Kasie) $25,000
Case 24 (Nancy) $500,000

Things are not going Erin's way... The lucky bunny.. isn't helping.

$ 500 $ 750,000
$ 750 $ 1,000,000

Generous... for the banker. What will Erin do? Deal or no deal? "That would do a lot of good..." Travis says one more time... and that's what we go to... Three to go.

Case 20 (Marisa) $300
Case 18 (Alike) "We're going to upset the banker a little bit."

$10
Case 12 (Jill) $75

Three small ones gone, which means the offer is going up...

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

Erin's going to Doc on this... "I think you should keep going, no deal!" Travis wants one more round...

Erin... "No deal!"

Case 16 (Kim) Anything but 750....

$500

Case 2 (Stacey) $25

The banker is not liking this, but the board is reduced to 50/50 on left/right, so things are getting a wee bit interesting now.

"He said, and I will quote... 'I don't like bunnies.'"

BANK OFFER
$99,000

 

$ .01 $ 1,000
$ 1 $ 100,000
$ 100 $ 750,000

The coworker says "Deal!" Doc and Travis say "One more time." Expectations were at $80,000. But Erin is running the show now... Deal or no deal?

Her heart says "No deal!" One to go...

Case 21 (Tameka) "I wish you the best of luck..."

$100

The banker did not like that. Erin did. "He's giving you this offer... then he's going rabbit hunting."

BANK OFFER
$167,000

 

$ .01 $ 1,000
$ 1 $ 100,000
$ 100 $ 750,000

There's a 40 percent chance that Erin is sitting on six figures. Or a 100 percent chance right now. Deal or No deal? If she deals, both she and the Special Olympics get $80,000...

"I need to do the right thing... I'm saying deal." Deal for $167,000! But what would have happened if she continued? Anya has... $100,000. The banker would've offered... $142,000. Claudia has... $750,000! What did Erin have?

$1

Erin's Case
1
1

One dollar! That's what we call "profit in her pants." And her Special Olympics are winners as well...

Money's been reshuffled. Let's bring out THORPE SCHOENLE! He comes from the home of the Chicago White Sox. He calls himself "the ultimate gamer". And here he is playing "the ultimate game."

Thorpe, who put in four calendar months into one game, picks 20, the day he met his wife. Hi, Marisa... Bye, Marisa.

?

Thorpe's Case
20

That's his case... but will he hold onto it? Let's open six...

Case 3 (Lisa) Last time, $75,000.

This time... $750,000.

Case 8 (Pilar) $400
Case 4 (Lindsay S) $750
Case 21 (Tameka) $10,000

"NICE!"

Case 12 (Jill) $300,000
Case 15 (Lanisha) $200

Thorpe's a fireman for Chicago, and the banker is about to flame out... "He thinks the ultimate gamer is the ultimate chump."

BANK OFFER
$15,000

 

$ .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 $ 750,000
$ 750 $ 1,000,000

Kara (wife), Al (gaming buddy), and Thorpe's mom are all in attendance for support. "I'm shocked he didn't go with #2, because that's our anniversary!" Turned out to be a good choice, Kara thought. But what does Thorpe say? "No deal! Come on!"

Five to open.

Case 23 (Aubrie) $200,000
Case 11 (Patricia) "You ready? Alright, fellow Chicagoan, here it comes..."

$500

"Bring a small one on!"

"10!" Who said that? Oh, it's Thorpe's daughter! Cute.

Case 10 (Anya) $25,000
Case 17 (Jenelle) $75,000
Case 13 (Kasie) PENNY CASE!

That's how you play the game... Banker? "He says you should've listened to your wife."

BANK OFFER
$33,000

 

$ .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 $ 750,000
$ 750 $ 1,000,000

Four to open, four big amounts. The money is going for a family vacation. Deal or no deal? "No deal!"

We're not done yet! As Al discusses that he and Thorpe went all out with the ratios and statistics and such.

Case 16 (Kim) $50
Case 18 (Alike) $75

"Strategy pays off, eh?"

Case 25 (Sonia) $100

"This is a very good round!"

Case 1 (Claudia) Fake out...

$5

A great round, means a great offer... which we'll get next round... because the banker threw in the towel for the day... Wimp.
