"Episode 2.48" - February 21

Last time, Pyong Kong, a big believer in fate, took home $211,000. In his case, the amount that his parents came to America with... $750. Talk about freaky.

Now a new deal begins with... DIMITRA APOSTOLOPOULOS! This 32-year-old first-generation Greek from Chicago was just fired from her copier sales job and she's looking for a bit of help. She's holding a chain of Greek lucky beads.

Patricia, you know, is also Greek... but for this game, Dimitra is picking the Brit, #22.

Time to meet Dimitra's big fat Greek family... We see George (younger brother), mom, and Angela (sister)... and a bunch of plates. Why plates? For good luck, they break plates. Opa!

That also explains the lexan shield around that area. Anyway, everyone says no deal. So that's what we're going with.

It's a dip. Mom says she raised a strong Greek girl. "No deal."

$91,000

 

$ .01 $ 5,000
$ 75 $ 300,000

She suffers from Leylaphobia. And for good reason.

BANOODLES!

Smashing ensues. Offer follows...

BANK OFFER
$109,000

 

$ .01 $ 5,000
$ 75 $ 300,000
$ 300 $ 400,000

Opa! The bank's testing the guts of the Greek. Still has two big numbers. She's giving up $100,000 to win an additional $300,000. Why not go one more. No deal it is!

One more.

3

Everyone has a plate in their hand... $300,000.

It's still good. But the safety net is gone. Let's see what the banker says... "Goodbye."

BANK OFFER
$95,000

 

$ .01 $ 5,000
$ 75 $ 300,000
$ 300 $ 400,000

There's a 2 of 3 chance that she either has less than the bank offer or that she'll open that amount next.

Dimitra... "My mama didn't raise no fool." DEAL for $95,000!

But was it the right decision? Jill had $75. Bank would've offered... $210,000. In Dimitra's case...

$400,000

22

Dimitra's Case

A bad deal.

Hopefully something more will befall upon... ISHMAEL BROWN. But we can call him "Tater".

We're going straight into the game as Ishmael picks #11.

Ishmael's Case

Tater has to get rid of six more to start.
