"Episode 2.25" - November 20

Last time, Casey Penston, a roller-skating biologist, got the surprise of a lifetime when it was revealed that her sister would be playing alongside of her for double money. Together, they ended up with $216,000. Today, Zanny Henseler, a student with an affinity for lime green Escalades with spinning rims, continues her journey for big money for her case, #23, which is now appropriately colored a nice shade of Game Boy screen green, as are the models, Howie, and the set. Oh yeah... the set.

"Sorry..."

$200,000

Now we're teetering on danger's edge. But the Banker's angry. Bad for the banker. Good for you. The offer... is lime green with four wheels. The dark model rolls out... a giant lime ... on four wheels. But that's not the offer. The offer... is what's behind it.

"The girl?"

Everyone, including the banker's babe, gets a rise out of that.

The offer is...

Zanny takes a moment to sit in it.

Now what will she do? The audience is split... The family is split... Eventually, she does what she needs to do...

DEAL FOR THE ESCALADE! But was it the right decision?

Tameka... "You made a VERY good deal." In Zanny's case...

Zanny's Case

She wanted the green... and we gave it to her.

Joe picks #10. And Anya... "This is my first time!" Good on ya, girl.

Little explanation: this is Erin Ashley, winner of the Access Hollywood/Deal or no Deal Model Sweepstakes. Which would explain why Aubrie's holding Lisa's case.

The guys say he can do better. "I'm starting to offer big shot money. I want to give Joe a taste of what big-shotdom is like." This, and $1000, coming from the banker. He wants Joe to give a complete stranger that money. Joe does so... Ten complete strangers... 10 $100 bills. Offer remains the same. But will Joe take the money now? There's a 50/50 chance that Joe is sitting on six figures. Better odds than any lottery. Better than Vegas.

"Howie... No deal, Howie."

How far will Joe go? Will he be the big shot he longs for? Find out next time.
