"Episode 2.21" - November 6

Last time, Anita English played the best game one could play... then got stung by the banker. Instead of the $411,000 she was offered early, she went home with $313,000. Still not bad. In her case... a dollar.

Next player up... NICOLE CUGLEWSKI. She's from Cleveland, and she likes all things Polish, including herself and her family. She works for the Cavs as their in-arena hostess.

She goes with her gut, and #13 has special meaning for her parents, so Leyla makes the game go now...

$19,000 is on the other side of that button. If Nicole says no deal, then she must open five more. "This one's easy. No deal!"

Five to go. After a kiss from our chrome-domed host, we continue...

$50,000

"If it's a penny will you give her another kiss?" Howie agrees....

"Daj mi buzi, Howie!" That's Polish for BANOODLES!

18

$100,000

16

$25,000

The penny is out of play, and the four big amounts are still in play. The banker, sweating, ... "How's that for spunky?" The banker wants a kiss. Nicole says no. The banker...

$ 400 $ 500,000
$ 500 $ 750,000
$ 750 $ 1,000,000

That's about half and half. That's a big amount. It's still a dealer's board. That said, Nicole plays on. No deal.

$750,000

"No pressure."

$1,000

"No pressure at all!"

The million dollar case is still in play, but the banker went down...

BANK OFFER
$162,000

 

  $ 10,000
  $ 200,000
$ 200 $ 400,000
$ 300 $ 1,000,000

The family wants her to either pull out (Dr. Jim) or go one more (everyone else). Nicole goes with her gut... No deal.

One more case...

1

"Please don't be mad at me."

$300

She's a faker, that lady... It's getting tougher, and the banker's getting a bit more generous...

BANK OFFER
$222,000

 

  $ 10,000
  $ 200,000
$ 200 $ 400,000
$ 300 $ 1,000,000

A quarter of a million. Will she take it or go one more? Mom says to take it.  There's a 40% chance that Nicole is holding more than the bank is willing to offer. Ryan says no deal. She's feeling one more...  "One more time! One more time! One more time!"

No deal...

One more...

17

"It's good!"

$200,000

That is good. It's less than the bank offer. Which means the banker will go up.

BANK OFFER
$247,000

 

  $ 10,000
  $ 200,000
$ 200 $ 400,000
$ 300 $ 1,000,000

The family wants Nicole to walk. The audience... "One more time! One more time! One more time!" Will she buckle under the pressure?

Yep. DEAL for $247,000! That's real, but what could have been?

Megan had... $200. The banker had... $517,000... Laura had... the million! Offer goes down to $200,000. In Nicole's case...

$400,000

13

Nicole's Case

Bad deal. But she does have $247,000.

Next up is... MILES McINTOSH. He's a personal trainer and a stay-at-home dad. He's carrying a story on the show with him. Today, this is going to be his lucky charm.

We reset the cases. Miles picks case #20...

Miles' Case

Starting with six...

$500,000

17

"Hey, now!"

$50

5

$1

13

$400,000

23

$200,000

Not going the way Miles hoped. But the million is still there. Let's see what the banker says...

BANK OFFER
$7,500

 

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

$ 400 $ 500,000
$ 500 $ 750,000
$ 750 $ 1,000,000

That's a no-brainer. It's also a No Deal.

Five to go.

18

"Not bad. Okay..."

$75,000

16

Last game, $25,000....

This time... $400!

I think we've turned a corner, but it's still a banker's board. The banker's offer...

BANK OFFER
$34,000

 

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

Miles has Deborah (wife) and sibs Miriam and Rossi. They all say no deal. Even Miles. We press on with four next time...
