The game is simple... Each identity given belongs
to one, and ONLY one, of the strangers. Match the 12 with their identities, and
you're going home half a million dollars richer. The more identities you match,
the more you win...
Robert will have three helps available to him...
- MISTAKEN IDENTITY: He is allowed to miss one
- TRI-DENTITY: He can narrow an identity down to three strangers
- EXPERTS: A panel of experts can give their insight
Among tonight's strangers for our first game, a C
student, a shoe fetishist, a shy girl, a cheerleader, a fan of JFK, an anti-fan
of rollercoasters, someone who doesn't like cheese, and ... "Trainwreck." The
NFL FOOTBALL PLAYER
REALITY TV STARLET
Robert tries Celebrity Impersonator... #12, who
looks like Ozzy Osbourne. For $1,000... is Roy a celebrity impersonator? "You
rock! I am the celebrity impersonator!"
Next, for $5000, is #3, Steve... a tattoo artist?
"Yes, I am the tattoo artist. Good job."
Next, for $10,000... Robert tries to whittle #2
or #5 as the NFL player (Robert: "He looks like TO") and #9 as the airline
pilot. He locks in #9 as the pilot. ... "You're cleared for takeoff. I am the
Robert is drawn to #4, who says her name is
Brittny. She loves hip-hop and wants a Chihuahua for Christmas. Robert plays
with cage fighter. He locks in #10... who looks like Amazon Beard... It is
Amazon Beard! And if she isn't a cage fighter, she should be... "I rock'em... I
sock'em... I am the cage fighter!" Right for $15,000!
Intro of friends and family: sister Lydie,
brother Jerry, and good friend Tina. And behind him? His kids. The sidelines
immediately pinpoint #4, Brittny as one of E!'s "Gastineau Girls." "I don't want
her to go away yet." Robert seals it. #4, reality TV starlet. Brittny, is that
your identity? "My name is Brittny Gastineau from 'Gastineau Girls' and I am a
reality-TV star." That's $25,000!
The sidelines are thinking blackjack dealer is
#11... or #8. But he's going to lock in #5 as the NFL football player. For
$50,000... is Ray our footballer? "And it's.... good." Ray Crockett of the
Next, for $75,000... Who's the preacher's son?
Robert doesn't think it's #7. He seals in #2. With an amen... #2... Sharad...
are your the preacher's son? "It has been ordained by..." A simple yes would've
Next up, $100,000... still batting 1000. He uses
the Tri-Dentity for Russian immigrant. We're whittled to... 1, 7, and 11.
Everyone agrees on 7... Robert seals it. Is #7.... Alec.... who may sound
Russian.... Is that your identity? "You got it!" In Russian! Robert has won
But can he turn it into $150,000? He wants to so
he can start a boardinghouse in the Philippines. Robert thinks #8 is innocent
enough to be a preschool teacher. Robert seals it. Is #8, Jessica, our preschool
teacher? "You've earned a gold star!" Robert is two away from $500,000! And
we're down to three strangers...
For $250,000... Robert tries to nail the
blackjack dealer. He gets a vibe from #11... and he doubles down on #6. Pamela,
#6... for $250,000... is that your identity?
"PAY THE MAN!"
With the Mistaken Identity still on the table,
this game is locked. Or does he? The rules stipulate that Robert must get this
final identity right on his own. Hence and therefore... the MI is now OFF the
table. That said, will Robert walk with $250,000?
"We're playing." Okay, he wants to use the
experts on belly dancer. Mark says #11. Dr. Deborah says #11, but go with your
gut. Christopher goes with #11. Robert can still opt out. He doesn't. He locks
in #11 as his belly dancer. "I'm gonna seal that identity!" Podium is green...
there is no turning back.
For $500,000 ... or nothing... #11... Eva...
is... that... your... identity?
After a break...
She bowed her head.... "Yes I am."
ROBERT TALON, YOU JUST WON $500,000!
And Eva comes down to congratulate him in person,
as does #1, our concert violinist. Question now is... can we give away the big
money TWICE in a row? Find out tomorrow night. Until then, don't be a stranger!
