Today is

"Episode 30" - May 5

Last time, Cowboys superfan Randy Smith and his magic hat took the banker for $100,000 when he sold his $75,000 case. Not so lucky for Rebecca Van de Ven, who sold her case, worth $5, for $9000. What will America's most famous vault bestow upon a dealer today?

We find out as we start fresh with ANCA TODERIC, originally from Transylvania, Romania. Hope she doesn't take a bite out of the banker... literally.

She chooses lucky 7, and Sara complies. She thinks that this time may be the million.

?

Anca's Case
7

She predetermined what she wants to pick at 5:30 in the morning... We start with six...

Case 3 (Lisa) "First up, here we go..."

$200

Case 10 (Anya) $100,000
Case 15 (Lanisha) $5,000
Case 21 (Tameka) $10
Case 22 (Donna) $5

Howie: This list is going to be worth a fortune on eBay.

Case 20 (Marisa) $750

That is a freaky list. Six of the big seven are still in play, as we come to... banker time.

$ 750 $ 1,000,000

She wants to go back to Romania to visit where she grew up. She also wants a puppy. $23,000 can do a lot of things, especially for her parents' orphanage. Deal or no deal? "No brainer. No deal!"

Five to go, as Anca elects to play the game barefooted.

Case 18 (Alike) $200,000
Case 1 (Claudia) $750,000
Case 14 (April) PENNY CASE!
Case 17 (Jenelle) $75,000
Case 8 (Pilar) $1,000

Anca wants to be nice to the banker... err, courteous... "Courtesy's not going to do it for him." He offers...

Helping Anca out are Ana (mom), Sarah (best friend), and Paul (family friend). Mom says "Don't be a wimp." That's another show. She isn't, though. No deal.

Four to go.

Case 2 (Stacey) $400
Case 19 (Mylinda) $75
Case 12 (Jill) $500
Case 25 (Sonia) $25

A great round, means a great bank offer... "Put him on speaker phone." No such luck.

It's not enough for Paul's Lamborghini. With four huge amounts and three cases next round...  Her husband, who's in the audience, says one more round.

No deal! Three to open.

Case 16 (Kim) $400,000
"Leyla, let's go with 13." $100
Case 4 (Lindsay S) $50

Still a winner's board as we go to banker offer #4..

Paul sings "No deal". He's an opera singer, you know. Will she comply? "Okay, guys. No deal!"

Two to go.

Case 23 (Aubrie) Does a little dance...

$300

Paul gives her a quick hug.

Case 5 (Ursula) Howie & Anca journey over to the gallery...

$25,000

And the banker starts to worry. Howie tells Dumitru (his husband)... "Choke on this..."

BANK OFFER
$186,000

 

  $ 10,000
  $ 50,000
  $ 300,000
  $ 500,000
$ 1 $ 1,000,000

Anca tries to sneak off stage with the case... Sarah cites three big numbers. This is a no brainer. No deal. "I'm going to have to say deal... Just joking. NO DEAL!"

One to go with a 50/50 shot at at least $300,000, as Howie somehow puts this all on Dumitru's head.

Anca chooses #24... but after the break, Dumitru has a surprise for her... A puppy! Awww... Dumitru calls it "Howie." And the puppy's a girl... "What a pretty little girl Howie is."

Back to the game.

Case 24 (Nancy) "Escide..." That's Romanian for "Open the case."

$10,000

Before Howie answers the phone, Paul decides to serenade the banker... "Remember ladies, he's single." Will it work?

No surprise, the banker isn't a fan of opera. "All off a dumb list."

BANK OFFER
$299,000

 

  $ 10,000
  $ 50,000
  $ 300,000
  $ 500,000
$ 1 $ 1,000,000

Paul says to follow her instincts, while Sarah says one more time. There's a 60% chance that Anca has at least $300,000, or she can take the $299,000 and be a bit off of that.

Classic last words: "I'm going to become the contestant I hate. No deal."

Dumitru... "She should've taken the deal, but I trust her instinct."

One more case.

Case 6 (Megan) "I'm getting a little shaky." Again?

$1,000,000

OW!

The million... is gone. After the break, the banker dials in with this.

BANK OFFER
$144,000

 

  $ 10,000
  $ 50,000
  $ 300,000
  $ 500,000
$ 1 $ 1,000,000

Still a lot of money, and still a 50/50 shot at six figures. Paul says to take the deal. Dumitru wants to get out now.

"All right. No deal."

One more case to open...

Case 26 (Lindsay C). $500,000

The list isn't working now. The banker will probably chuck the list, but offer this to Anca...

BANK OFFER
$70,000

 

  $ 10,000
  $ 50,000
  $ 300,000
  $ 500,000
$ 1 $ 1,000,000

"Follow what you feel." Paul says deal. Mom... is quiet. Anca... shuts the box.

One more case....

Case 9 (Patricia) Anca decides to take matters into her own hands...

Landmine. $300,000.

The banker's final offer...

BANK OFFER
$25,000

 

  $ 10,000
  $ 50,000
  $ 300,000
  $ 500,000
$ 1 $ 1,000,000

Everyone says take it. "The list was going so well! I want to finish my list, but I would never forgive myself if I went home with a dollar. Deal." Deal for $25,000.

Two cases left, Anca's and Katie's. We open up Anca's to reveal...

$50,000

Anca's Case
7

A bum deal. Katie has $1. Anca has $25,000 and a puppy. We'll count our losses and come back fresh next time.
