"Episode 2.47" - February 19

Last time, Cheryl Clarke took $172,000 from the banker... who was offering $300,000. Then Tony Kolton left the game early with $94,000 after the numbers began to matter.

Next player is... PYONG KONG. Pyong is a self-professed Korean cowboy whose parents came over with $750 in their pocket. Pyong grew up in a trailer park and learned English through karaoke and country music. He's playing for a honeymoon.

Pyong starts play with ... a clog. Next, he chooses his case, #8.

$ 75 $ 10,000
$ 400 $ 500,000

Pyong's parents came over from Korea with nothing. Wifey wants one more case. Howie's offering a guarantee of six figures, but will he give up $173,000 for a CHANCE at $550,000 more? Mom says to listen to the wife.

He does. No deal.

11

"Get ready to dance!" $10,000

Quick clog... maybe a one-two-step... Time for the banker... Does he believe in fate? Pyong's family came with $750. Pyong has a chance at $750,000... or $75... or $750. The banker offers...

$ 750 $ 750,000

$500,000

Uncanny. If you look at the board... $75, $750, and $750,000... this... is fate talking. The banker does go down to...

BANK OFFER
$211,000

 

$ 75 $ 10,000
$ 400 $ 500,000
$ 750 $ 750,000

That is just unreal. That number started his life in America. Now everyone is saying to deal. "The heavens are telling me something. My parents came with a dream, and $211,000 is a really good dream." DEAL for $211,000!

But was it the right decision? Mylinda had ... $750,000! In Pyong's case... back to the beginning...

$750

8

Pyong's Case

The right case at the right time. Unreal! We've come full circle as Howie tells Mama to hold onto the case... Talk about fate.

Another player and another deal awaits next time.
