Today is

"Episode 33" - May 15

(C-Note: what follows is a recap from the abbreviated broadcast due to a Presidential Address.)

Last time, Chad Pritchard took the banker for $14,000. Pretty good considering that he had $500 in his case. Now it's Lauren Potter's turn, as she rejects an offer for $131,000 for her case, #22.

Lauren's Case
22

Thanks to the President, we now pick up the game already in progress with one case to open.

Case 21 (Tameka) $400,000

Two huge amounts left, but the banker's going to renege a bit.

BANK OFFER
$97,000

 

$ 5 $ 200,000
$ 10 $ 400,000
$ 50 $ 500,000

"That's not fair!" It's the game, Lauren. Howie calls for Lauren's final answer...

... and that's when Regis decides to show up. Why's he here? I'm sure it has something to do with "America's Got Talent" this summer... Anywho, after a tiff about a catch phrase, and a plug for said series, it's time for Lauren's final answer... $97,000.... Deal or no deal?

The sister says to take it. Dad says no deal.

Lauren... examines the numbers... and takes the risk. No deal! One more to go.

"Please... Anya.. Number 10!" Anya drags the sister back on stage to open the case...

Mother... $500,000.

Banker likes...

BANK OFFER
$44,000

 

$ 5 $ 200,000
$ 10 $ 400,000
$ 50 $ 500,000

Mom doesn't want her to go with $10. The crowd says no deal.

Lauren... "Deal!" Deal for $44,000! But was it the right decision?

Marisa had $10, which would've put the offer at $62,000. Aubrie had $5, which would've put the offer at ... $100,000. In Lauren's case...

$200,000

Lauren's Case
22

A bum deal, but still a lot of money for anyone in New York.

Next up, a player whose husband is serving in Iraq... RENEE STOKES! She's playing for family, home, and her own Harley.

The cases have been reloaded. The homework has been done... "Megan. She looks exactly like one of my sisters." She gets case #6. And a hug.

?

Renee's Case
6

Now for the first six...

Case 21 (Tameka) $1,000
Case 23 (Aubrie) $200,000
Case 15 (Lanisha) $400,000
Case 16 (Kim) $25,000
Case 19 (Mylinda) $750
Case 10 (Anya) $50,000

The lowest amount was $750... That will factor heavily into the decision.

BANK OFFER
$12
,000

 

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

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

"No deal, please." But not that much. Okay, going to open five now.

Case 14 (April) $300,000
Case 24 (Nancy) $1,000,000
Case 18 (Alike) $10,000
Case 8 (Pilar) $5
Case 9 (Kasie) $50

Still three big amounts left, but the bank is not taking any chances.

BANK OFFER
$18,000

 

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

$ 75 $ 100,000
$ 100 $ 200,000
$ 200 $ 300,000
$ 300 $ 400,000
$ 400 $ 500,000
$ 500 $ 750,000
$ 750 $ 1,000,000

Helping Renee is Julie and Emily (friends) and Judy (mother in law), who doesn't know how she got "cornswoggled" into this. No cornswoggling today, she says "no deal".

Four to go.

Case 20 (Marisa) $400
Case 22 (Donna) PENNY CASE!
Case 13 (Nicole) $200
"Okay, Lisa. Your number's up." Case 3...

$100

That was a much smoother round. The last six picks were on the left. The banker knows this. He offers...

BANK OFFER
$50,000

 

$ .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

With that, NBC uplinks to Iraq, where we see SSG Justin Stokes with some help. "No deal. We got a bunch of Marines here for support."

Deal or no deal? "I will listen to my husband... No deal!" They're going to take some quality time, while we take a break.

After which, we open three.

Case 25 (Kristen) $1
Case 5 (Patricia) $500
"17.. I believe that's Jenelle." $5,000

Eight cases left, with a 50/50 shot at at least $75,000. Here's the banker... "He's getting desperate. When the contestant is on fire, he gets desperate. And when he gets desperate, he wants you out of here."

BANK OFFER
$99,000

 

$ .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

That's not all. In the NBC hallway... Jay Leno on a Dyna Wide Glide. 2006 model. Total deal: $117,000. So $99,000 and a new Harley-Davidson. Wheels or no wheels?

Justin says no deal.

"No deal!"

The bike is gone. Mom and Dad tell Justin that they love them. Aww... Next, the two...

Case 4 (Lindsay S) $750,000
Case 7 (Sarah) $75

We've got a three and three situation. With one of the lowest and THE highest taken out, we are left with...

BANK OFFER
$84,000

 

$ 10 $ 75,000
$ 25 $ 100,000
$ 300 $ 500,000

There's a one-in-three chance at six figures. Everyone says those are good enough odds to continue. "No deal."

One to go.

"I'm thinking 2, Stacey." "I think we should take a couple of minutes." Damn you, Stacey and your educated brains...

Fakeout.. $300

Here comes a quality nice offer...

BANK OFFER
$112,000

 

$ 10 $ 75,000
$ 25 $ 100,000
$ 300 $ 500,000

A 40 percent chance at six figures. Or 100 if she takes the deal. The Marines say "No deal."

"No deal!"

One more to go.

Case 1 (Claudia) Apparently Renee and Claudia have a lot in common: both are half-Italian, and both love to gamble.

$100,000

Not terrible, as it's still less than that last bank offer. Here's the newer one. Actually, the banker radios Justin with the offer...

BANK OFFER
$121,000

 

$ 10 $ 75,000
$ 25 $ 100,000
$ 300 $ 500,000

Suddenly, everyone says "deal." Justin says... "How do you feel about it?" She says one more...  "I think she should deal."

Then Justin is cut off...

Then he returns. Begrudgingly, he agrees to one more go.

"No deal!"

One more to go.

Case 12 (Jill) Justin's choice...

Wait... Change!

Case 11 (Katie) Julie's choice...

"I'm so nervous right now for ya."

Should've stuck with Justin. $500,000

The banker calls in studio with this...

BANK OFFER
$28,000

 

$ 10 $ 75,000
$ 25 $ 100,000
$ 300 $ 500,000

She can still buy the bike, but will she if she goes one more? Justin says to deal.

End result... Deal for $28,000! But how good a deal was it?

Back to Jill... "Hi!" To add further insult to injury, she had $25. Offer would've been $40,000. In Renee's case...

$10

Renee's Case
6

And in an obviously-pieced-together-at-the-last-second ending, Howie thanks America's armed services for their neverending support to their country and for uplinking Justin to the studio. Check out Americasupportsyou.mil for more information, and we'll see you next time with a new player.
