"Episode 2.10" - October 6

Last time, Latoshia Odom scored $104,000 and a title of honorary model, while Ron Rosania won $131,000. Both ended up rooking the banker.

Will our youngest contestant ever do the same? Her name is ELNA HIMMLER. All of 19 years old, this was her birthday wish to be on this show. She knows how this game works, as she hopes to play to a big college tuition.

Our girl Lisa brings down Elna's case, #3

Another one of the banker's models converts... and likes it.

$1,000

2

$200,000

Still a dealer's board. There's a 50/50 shot of at least $100,000. The banker knows this, and offers accordingly.

BANK OFFER
$116,000

 

$ .01 $ 1,000

$ 500 $ 750,000
$ 750 $ 1,000,000

That's big money! But again, there's a 50/50 chance that she is sitting on at least $100,000. Those are good odds. Next round has two cases. Mom says "No deal"... That's what Elna's going with. Two more cases.

17

Mom: "It's $5!"

Times 20,000. $100,000

18

Mom: "It's $5!"

Times 60,000. $300,000

There's still a one-in-six chance of a million and a one-in-three chance of a six-figure sum, but the banker sees that the odds came down, so he went down.

BANK OFFER
$109,000

 

$ 5 $ 75,000
$ 75 $ 500,000
$ 300 $ 1,000,000

... or she can take the guaranteed six-figures... But it's still a dealer's board. Mom says go for it. Dad agrees...

NO DEAL IT IS! One more to go.

11

Mom: "It's $5."

Times 1. $5!

Odds went up big time. Mom goes up big time. Banker goes up...

BANK OFFER
$193,000

 

$ 5 $ 75,000
$ 75 $ 500,000
$ 300 $ 1,000,000

Best friend says to take it. Crowd shouts to deal. It's still a dealer's board. Mom says to go on! Dad says that it's a good deal.

"Pop it now."

You can see the tension on Elna's face... and she pulls the trigger. DEAL FOR $193,000!

But was it the right thing to do? Jacquelynn had $75,000. The banker would've fronted $410,000. Laura had $300. Banker would've fronted $540,000. Lindsay C had the million! In Elna's case...

$500,000

Elna's Case

Elna gets shafted from playing it safe.

We reshuffle as ADALIS MARRERO hopes to learn from that example. She's a stay-at-home mom with lucky shoes. She's ready to play... Wait.. putting on the lucky chancletas... now we're ready. Board is in place. Let's pick a case. Adalis picks lucky 13...
