This is Randell Leoncio,
a former Marine Corpsman from San Diego who lost a leg
in Iraq and is now studying to become a prosthetics
doctor. His sister Lindsey is playing the game tonight
for thousands of dollars to help him get to his goal and
get his life back together. His determination in the
face of battle is the definition of the credo, "Never
leave a teammate behind". For his action, he received a
Bronze Star and a Purple Heart.
Today is all about
Randell and his heroism, because Randell Leoncio... YOU
Here's how it works. There are five
who/what/where puzzles, worth, in order, $10,000, $25,000, $50,000,
$100,000, and $250,000. In total, there is $435,000 to be won, and every
penny of whatever she wins goes directly to Randell. Each puzzle has 10
clues. The first one is free, but the others will have to be bought with
a portion of the total puzzle's value. You will have one - and ONLY one
- guess at the puzzle. If you are correct, whatever money is left is
yours to give no matter what. If you are wrong, you forfeit the rest of
The clues to be bought will be assigned
to a random dollar value. She will have to pick a clue and give back the
corresponding dollar amount in order to see it.
