"Episode 3" - December 21

Night 3 of Deal or No Deal starts with The March of 26 Babes, all dressed in red.  Amy Ditbrenner is the returning player.  Last night, she removed 18 cases.  Eight cases remain, including her case 8.  The last offer on Tuesday night was $76,000.  The show ended with her decision pending.  Here's how the board looks:

Bank offer:  $76,000

 

$ .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

If Amy passes on the offer, she must remove two cases in the next round.  Amy's family says 'no deal'.  Amy closes the case and quietly says "No deal."

Case 11 (Jill) $200
Case 22 (Joni) $5

The phone rings with the banker's newest offer--$124,000.  If Amy continues, she has to open just one case per round.  Howie gives Amy some time to consider the offer over a commercial break.

Bank offer:  $124,000

 

$ .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

After deliberation and consultation from her family, Amy closes the case.  No deal!

Case 10 (Marisa) Amy:  I'm hoping 10 has 10 (dollars).

$500,000

Howie tries putting a positive twist on the matter by saying that if she had to lose either of the large cases, the $500,000 case is the one to lose.

The banker calls in with an offer almost similar to the last offer--$121,000.

Bank offer:  $121,000

 

$ .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

Amy's mother says that the $121,000 is three or four years' salary.  Amy's dad says that 8 is his lucky number and to say no deal.  Amy's mother changes her mind to no deal.  Her parents say it's ultimately Amy's decision.  Amy quietly says "no deal" while shutting the case.  Can Amy avoid the million with this pick?

Case 17 (Kasie) Howie puts Amy through more agony by going to a break.

After the break, we see Kasie has $500.

The phone rings with the new offer--$201,000.

Bank offer:  $201,000

 

$ .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

Before Amy gives a decision, the phone rings again.  It's not the banker on the other end.  Instead, it's Darcy and Dixie, Amy's daughters.  Darcy says that Mom should deal.  Amy's family and most of the audience is shouting "DEAL!" in unison.  Amy succumbs to the pressure by hitting the button.  Deal for $201,000!  The million dollar question is "Did Amy make the right move?"  Here is how Amy would've played the rest of the cases, in order:

Case 25 (Angel) $75
Case 19 (A.J.) $5000

Howie says the offer for her case would have been $500,000.  One case has $1,000,000, while the other has $10.  What was in 8 all this time?  Howie opens the case to reveal just $10.  Even though subsequent offers would have been better, Amy made an amazing deal.

After a break, we return with a new player--Daryl Johnson, a free-lance web designer.  Daryl's case is #6.  Megan hands Daryl the case.

Case 18 (Donna) $500
Case 22 (Joni) $400
Case 2 (Stacey) $.01

Daryl starts strutting around.

Case 19 (A.J.) $300,000

Daryl:  Okay.  That's okay.

Case 4 (Lindsay) $750,000
Case 15 (Bonnie-Jill) $25

Mr. Telephone Man, as Daryl calls him, dials in with an $11,000 offer.

Bank offer:  $11,000

 

$ .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

Daryl says $11,000 is good money but it's not enough to pay off student loan bills.  No deal!  Five cases must be opened.

Case 13 (Leyla) $10
Case 7 (Sara) $1,000,000

And you could hear a pin drop in the studio.

Case 24 (Lindsay) $750
Case 9 (Claudia) $1
Case 1 (Mylinda) After a break, Mylinda reveals $100,000.

Offer time--$19,000.

Bank offer:  $19,000

 

$ .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

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

Giving advice to Daryl are his older brother, Shantay, a female friend, and David, an ex-coworker.  The collective advice from David's family and friends is to go on.  Daryl says no deal.  Time to remove four more cases.

Case 11 (Jill) $1,000
Case 17 (Kasie) $25,000
Case 14 (Dawn) $75
Case 23 (Nancy) $75,000

Daryl's self-proclaimed nemesis calls up with a $37,000 offer.

Bank offer:  $37,000

 

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

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

It sounds like some of Daryl's cheering section is saying "deal" while others are saying "no deal."  Ultimately, it's Daryl's choice.  He goes with "no deal."  Daryl must open three cases this round.

Case 26 (Pilar) $50,000
Case 12 (Amie) $400,000

Daryl:  This ain't going right.

Case 10 (Marisa) $300

Pick up the phone, Howie.  The banker's calling.  Daryl gives a wave to the banker.  Following yet another break, the new offer comes in--$32,000.

$ 400 $ 500,000

Shantay tells Daryl to "go for broke."  Daryl responds with "I'm already broke!"  No deal.  One case must be opened.

Case 25 (Angel) $10,000

The big money is still up there, meaning the offer will be sweetened.  The offer is $37,000, the same offer Daryl passed up three turns earlier.

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

Just like earlier, Daryl says "no deal" to the $37,000 deal.  As long as Daryl avoids the $200,000 case, the deals will increase.

Daryl's brother adamantly tells his little brother to take the sure thing, as he can't do anything with $50.  Daryl says he has a feeling...but he also says he's no damn fool.  Deal!

What did Daryl's case contain?  Howie opened up case 6 to reveal just $50.  Yet another great deal!  The show ends with two people screwing the banker.

Tomorrow night will start with a new person trying to buck the odds and win a million.
