Today is

"Episode 2.26: The Thanksgiving Show" - November 23

Happy Thanksgiving! If the effects of the tryptophan haven't taken hold yet, you probaby remember a lime green Escalade rolling out for Zanny Henseler and a left-side clear out for Joe Kaiser. Today, on this special two-hour episode, anything can happen as Joe continues to fight out for top coin for his case, #10.

Joe's Case

We've reached that critical point in the game when Joe must open one case at a time before hearing the Banker's offer..

BUT before we do, also cheering on Joe... the NFL on NBC team. Hey... Two-hour show. We've got to pad it out somehow.

15

$750,000

The biggest case is out of the running. Still a lot of money, though.  The offer did go down, though...

BANK OFFER
$85,000

 

  $ 5,000
  $ 10,000
  $ 25,000
  $ 300,000
  $ 400,000
  $ 750,000

It's still a dealer's board, but will the decline in money mean a decline in interest? "Keep him honest! Make him sweat a little!"

No deal.

25

$400,000

Banker calls in... "Now he has something to be thankful for."

BANK OFFER
$36,000

 

  $ 5,000
  $ 10,000
  $ 25,000
  $ 300,000
  $ 400,000
  $ 750,000

It IS all about percentages, and right now, they're all favoring the banker.

Joe is determined not to let the banker ruin Thanksgiving. DEAL for $59,000. But was it the right decision?

Lindsay had $5000. Offer rose to $94,000. Kasie had the 300 large. In Joe's case...

$10,000

10

Joe's Case

A good deal.

Was that a turkey I saw in the Big Deal Thanksgiving bumper?

Next up, BECKY SPEARS... and a sweet potato pie from South Carolina. "Nanny" is thankful for being on this show with her entire family. Granddaughter Hannah, almost 13, gets to hand off the case to Nanny.

This is a special Thanksgiving board. Instead of $25, we get a TURKEY on the board. Everyone in the audience is going to take a turkey home with them. Nanny, though, is taking case #17.

$50,000

23

Now it's a Banker's board. Let's see what the banker says...

BANK OFFER
$22,000

 

TURKEY $ 10,000
$ 75 $ 25,000
$ 500 $ 100,000

Nanny wants to help her grandchildren. Love Dove wants to go on a trip. Grandson wants to go to NASCAR Victory Junction. No deal.

6

$500

There's a  1-in-5 chance at $100,000... or a turkey. The offer went up to...

BANK OFFER
$26,000

 

TURKEY $ 10,000
$ 75 $ 25,000
$ 500 $ 100,000

Love Dove wants one more case...  And since he's the one she has to go one with... No deal.... and Love Dove picks...

24

Gobble gobble.

And the crowd goes crazy. And the banker goes up...

BANK OFFER
$33,000

 

TURKEY $ 10,000
$ 75 $ 25,000
$ 500 $ 100,000

Everyone tells her to deal. Love Dove wants one more case! Nanny is a gutsy player. But she ain't stupid. DEAL for $33,000! But was it the right decision? We'll find out in a bit, but first...

Howie goes up to the Banker's Office. Remember that pie he offered? Well... YOU ASKED FOR IT!

Back to business.

Alike... $10,000. The next offer was $41,000. Laura had... $25,000. The banker would've give $50,000. In Nanny's case...

$100,000

17

Nanny's Case

A bum deal. But it was still a good game on account of having the Banker get egg on his face... and flour... and whipped cream... and partially hydrogenated soybean oil.

After seeing Tammy Fuller be invited to a New York Jets game by one Curtis Martin (you remember her, football mom who LOVED the Jets, ended up winning $186,000).

Next up, TERRA WALKER. She works a reading program in Orlando, FL's Freedom Middle School.

The cases are reset. In honor of Terra's son's birthday, Lisa delivers #3.

Terra's Case

And for this special board, $10 is replaced by a PUMPKIN PIE.

Another special twist... Keltie has a special GREEN case. If Terra can open eleven cases without revealing the million, she gets whatever is in Keltie's case.

10

$300,000

25

$100

15

$1,000,000

That hurt. Not only is that out of play, but the green case is also now out of play.

16

$750,000

14

"Oh, no..."

$500,000

21

$100,000

This is unprecedented. Five big amounts... Gone. "You might want to cut the agony and pull the band-aid off quickly."

$ 750

$ 1,000,000

Not in the middle of a turnaround. No deal! After a visit from the family via a Sprint picture message, we get three to delete.

BANOODLES!

Next call, a good offer. Banker is angry.

BANK OFFER

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

$ 1,000,000

That's almost a year's salary. But Terra still thinks she's turning it around. No deal

$25,000

12

"I think the banker's a turkey. And in my house, we stuff and carve the turkey." Who knew Jill could be so violent!

$25

$200,000 is still in play, and it looks like the Banker just got stuffed.

BANK OFFER
$37,000

 

$ 50 $ 50,000
$ 200 $ 200,000
$ 300  
$ 500  

$200,000 is still on the board. Or maybe $37,000 is more her speed. Mom wants her to deal, but Matthew says that the banker's a jive turkey.

She shuts the box. No deal.

One more case.

5

"Happy Thanksgiving!"

$50

That'll give the banker something to think about...

BANK OFFER
$46,000

 

$ 50 $ 50,000
$ 200 $ 200,000
$ 300  
$ 500  

Was this enough of a turnaround? The loved ones all say it's time. There's a 40% chance that Terra's case holds more than the offer.

DEAL for $46,000! That's real money, but was that the right decision?

Sara had $300. Banker would've offered $61,000. Lindsey had.. $50,000. Bank offer... $72,000. Marisa had the $200,000. Terra's case had...

$500

3

Terra's Case

And as everyone in the audience gets a PC copy of DoND, so this special turkey-trimmed episode of DoND comes to a close. Come back next time. Happy Thanksgiving!
