Today is

"Premiere Week 1" - September 18

December 2005... NBC launches a game show that would take hold of a nation like never before.

September 2006... after having given millions of dollars away, the game returns for a new season. Twenty-six cases, $1 million, no stunts, no trivia, just one question...

DEAL... OR NO DEAL?

So here's the "Deal"... The top prize all week will start with $1 million, and for every game that progresses, it'll grow by another million until we get to $6 million. Which means that the bank offers will start to get a little heftier.

Cases are loaded... Models are in place. All we need now is a contestant. First up for the season is... SSG ROBIN MULLINS! Robin is in the Air Force, returning from Iraq, and stationed in Illinois. If she wins the money, she wants to send her niece Hannah to college.

Quick refresher of the rules. You pick a case. That is yours to either hold onto for the duration of the game or sell. In round 1, you eliminate six cases, and whatever is in those cases is not in yours. After that, the banker will make an offer. If it's a deal, then you win that amount of money. If it's no deal, then play continues with five cases to eliminate, then four, three, two, and then one per round.

Top prize this game is $1 million...

Four to go. And Robin needs a lozenge...

13

Leyla: "How about $400?"

Ursula: "Hope you still love me after this..." $100!

Afterwards, she transfers from the gallery to the sidelines to stand next to Wayne... Lucky freak.

$500

21

$200,000

Two cases left... Pick wisely.

$ .01 $ 1,000
$ 10 $ 300,000
$ 25 $ 750,000

Robin says that she's "the love of her life". So this may be worth considering. There's a 1-in-3 shot at six figures. There's one more case to open in the next round, or she can take six figures right now. Deal or no deal?" Donna says to take it for Hannah...

"Deal." DEAL for $102,000! Hannah's got a free ride, but could it have been sweeter? Just how good did Robin deal? Let's find out.

Her next choice would've been 3... $10. Bank offer... $152,000. 26 had.... $750,000. In Robin's case... Banoodles.

$0.01

24

Robin's Case

That's what you call a great deal. Time to reset the cases and bring forth a new player... WILLIAM MING! He's been married 26 years to the same woman, and he's also a preacher. "Everybody loves a preacher." He says he's a "ghetto preacher".

Today, he's playing for... "Two million, Howie." It's Chico... Okay, William calls out 25. Hayley notches her first delivery.

$ 50 $ 1,000,000

There's a 50-50 shot at more than what the banker's offering. Deal or no deal? The family says no. But this money could help with his ministries, so... DEAL for $56,000!

Next case would've been $5. Banker would've offered $85,000. Next would've been $50. Banker would've offered $146,000. In William's case...

$200,000

25

William's Case

So the banker is 1-and-1 tonight. How will he do with... MATTHEW SOLINA? Matthew's from Staten Island, NY, where he's a Teamster. He's come to win the million. And he takes no checks. He wants cash money.

And it's Matty Day, so let's get the party started... for $3 million! He was married for 23 years, his birthday's on the 23rd, and he was a Teamster for 23 years. He's picking case 6... Kidding. It's case 23.

The good news... it's lower than the bank offer. And the millions are still in play. The bank goes up, but only just so.

"DEAL!" DEAL for a record-shattering $675,000! The most money anyone has ever walked away with. But was it a good decision?

Lindsey C had... the million. Bank would've gone to $600,000. April had... $250,000. The bank would've gone to... $1.1 million. Laura had.... $750. Bank's final offer would've been... $1.6 million. In Matty's case...

Matty kept saying he had the "tree million"...

$3,000,000

23

William's Case

I'll be damned. He was right. But still, it's a big amount to walk with.

Premiere week continues next time.
