It's the final night of the week-long premiere of Deal or No Deal.  Hopefully Venus Bernardo ends this round of shows with a bang.

There are mixed emotions in the studio, with some people saying deal while others say no deal.  Venus says no deal.  Two cases need to be opened before the next bank offer.

Case 9 (Claudia) $10

The telephone rings.

The audience is prodding Venus to go on.  Venus' friends say deal.  Venus hits the button--deal!  Venus has $23,000.  If Venus held onto 26, she would've had $50,000.  Case 10 had the $200.

The final contestant in the first run is Janette Beverly.  Janette is a musician, a music teacher, and a mother of three girls.  Can Janette end the first series on a high note?

Janette picks case 3, as she has three girls.  Lisa delivers the case to Howie and Janette.

Howie asks how he could change Janette's luck.  Janette says she wanted her husband there.  Instead, Howie presents Janette with her necklace.  An image of Janette and her husband, Brian, on the game board.  The sisters are confident that case 3 has $100,000.  Janette says no deal.

Janette and her sister Jen are sharing the same vibe--case 18.

Case 18 (Donna) $1

The offer has jumped considerably, to $40,000.  But wait!  The phone rings again.  Howie doesn't know the person on the other end.  He puts the mystery person on speakerphone.  It's Janette's husband, Brian.  After telling Brian the board, he says "I'm behind you, whatever you choose."

The sisters say 2.  Janette goes with 2.

Case 2 (Stacey) $75

Janette's in a win-win situation, with no less than $75,000.  The banker's final offer is $85,000.

Her sisters still say no deal.  Janette says she lost $10,000 earlier.  No deal!

Howie makes Janette an offer he hasn't done in prior shows--to swap case 3 with case 22.  Janette won't budge.  She's keeping case 3.  What's in #3?  The worst case scenario--$75,000.  What a take after starting out with a meager $4,000 offer.

That's it for this run of Deal or No Deal.  Deal or No Deal will rerun next week on CNBC in primetime, before Jim Cramer's show, Mad Money.  (How appropriate--a show about big deals and bigger money before a show about essentially the same thing.)  Deal or No Deal will return in March with new shows.
