"Episode 2.56" - March 26

Last time, Ladies night ended up with a giveaway of $122,000 to three ladies, one of which was plucked from a corn-dog stand.

Next, we go to picking players the old fashioned way with STAN STAVA. Stan comes equipped with roses... He's a 47-year-old bachelor looking for love... on a game show, no less. Anyone can tell you that that is NOT going to work. Anyways, 26 yellow roses, 26 ladies... Makes sense. He's from Shreveport, LA.

He's got a plan, and it starts with... a poem... for the Aussie holding #3...

"Roses are red, violets are blue,
You would surely win my heart for just one date with you."

Somewhere in Jersey, Gordon is awwwbarfing.

Interestingly enough, he goes with case #14. Instead of #3. Odd, but let's see how it plays out.

Player is operating tonight! The banker needs some time to put together an offer. ... a date with Lisa's sister? Umm.... No. It's just a sad man with a dress and a wig holding a placard for...

BANK OFFER
$87,000

 

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

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

$ 1,000,000

He ought to say no deal on principle alone.  And he does.

15

"In the words of Stan... 'Absolutely!' $5

6

$500,000

Banker drops the offer to...

BANK OFFER
$72,000

 

  $ 1,000
  $ 10,000
  $ 100,000
  $ 300,000
$ 75 $ 400,000

Quick no deal...

12

$1,000

That'll do. Now the banker raises the offer back to...

BANK OFFER
$113,000

 

  $ 1,000
  $ 10,000
  $ 100,000
  $ 300,000
$ 75 $ 400,000

$113,000 is life-changing money, but the book says to play on. There is a safety net with three big amounts in play, two of which are bigger than the bank offer.  NO DEAL.

26

$300,000

There's a 50/50 shot at six figures, or he can take this bank offer...

BANK OFFER
$93,000

 

  $ 1,000
  $ 10,000
  $ 100,000
  $ 300,000
$ 75 $ 400,000

Two big amounts, both are bigger than the bank offer. NO DEAL.

7

$100,000

The safety net is gone. That said, the bank offers..

BANK OFFER
$107,000

 

  $ 1,000
  $ 10,000
  $ 100,000
  $ 300,000
$ 75 $ 400,000

Duane mentions that the $400,000 is the landmine. There's no safety net. Stan, in no uncertain terms says that it's been real. DEAL for $107,000!

But did he make a mistake?

$10,000

14
Stan's Case

Nope. Good deal! For the record, had Stan chosen his lady fair... he would've had the $400,000.

Next up is HEIDI KURTZ, complete with a gift for Howie: pure Alaskan snow. Talk about an icebreaker. She is an Aleut/Yupik Eskimo... and she's happy to be here. She's here for a house.

Board is set. She picks #3... And Lisa delivers before she runs off to be with Stan from the last game.
