ZONK ANSWER OF THE WEEK: If "Deal or No Deal" ever comes back to the U.S. after this season, the most important lesson to remember when playing that game is that if you have any safety net left on a particular amount, say NO DEAL, no matter what The Banker is offering you. Sadly, Paul Reping did NOT abide to that rule on last Tuesday's episode, leaving the game after the fifth round with a $107K deal despite the fact that he still had the top two amounts on the board. As a result, he missed out on both a $260K final offer, and ultimately became the fourth (and possibly the last one ever) contestant this seasont to give back the $500K grand prize.

The Wus are also the April 2010 Players of the Month.
