8/20/2010 Results

LMAD: Jennifer (dressed as a ladybug) starts the first deal of the day with her choice of either the red envelope or Curtain #1, one of which has something worth $5,800. She picks the curtain...correct for a trip to the Fairmont Scottsdale in Arizona from The Journeymasters! The red envelope's check was worth $123. Contestant #2 is Hadley (who is a student manager at a cooking place), and either the blue envelope or the small box (Jonathan Mangum) contains a prize package worth $2,950. He takes the envelope, and its check is worth...$86, so he misses out on a pearl necklace. This deal will continue.

Third, Jodi (who just turned 40) gets the Multi-Swap ATM Card.

1. $100
2. $100 ($200)
3. $500 ($700); QUITS THIS DEAL FOR GOOD

The birthday present she could have had behind Curtain #3 was...the DEMOLISHED airplane!

Time now for the couple of Kelly & Randal (dressed as clowns) to play a never-before-seen dice game for the $15,365 Chevrolet Aveo5 (Curtain #3). There are two paths:

Path #1:
1. Odd
2. Odd/Even
3. Odd/Even or Odd/Even

Path #2:
1. Even
2. Odd/Even
3. Odd/Even or Odd/Even

After they've made three rolls of at least one die, they can stop with $100 per point or try for the car by having their final rolled square revealed- half of the top row squares say WIN, while the other half of them read ZONK.

1. 3- PATH #1 ($300)
2. 1 ($400)
FINAL ROLL (with both dice): 11 ($1,500)

After three odd rolls in a row, they go on. Do they win the car...YES- PERFECT DEAL!

Next is a nerd named Steve, and he has to guess whether the silver envelope or the big box has a prize worth $1,649. After he talks to his consultant Jimmy (who's wearing a banana hat), he chooses the envelope...he's won said amount in cash! The box had half a pool table. There will be one more round of this particular deal towards the end of the program.

The next three traders are Jessica (dressed as a devil), Kimiko (dressed as a pilot) & Linda (who's wearing a purple suit with a giant pink boa); it's time for Beat the Dealer! They get their choice of Jonathan's three pockets, two of which contain $500 and the other has $50. Picking the $50 one eliminates that woman from this deal.

Jessica: Bottom-left- $50 WIPEOUT

At stake in Round 2 is the Samsung 46" LCD HDTV and a mini Netbook worth a total of $2,429 (Curtain #1).

Kimiko: #6- THREE
Linda: #8- ONE

Kimiko can now keep the $2,929 in cash and prizes she's accumulated up to this point or give that all back for a choice of one of four numbered envelopes, with the gold one now in play. Two have $1,000, one has a Benjamin and the other has five grand. She's going for the nicer money.

FINAL PICK: #2- WINS $1K

Two guys are chosen on next- James and Cort (who's wearing a blue T-shirt with a C in the center). After they're each given a hundred bucks to start, they're asked to check their wallets for money. Whoever has less money in their wallet will add $500 to their winnings and will get to continue on in the deal:

James: Around $300
Cort: Around $30 ($600)

Alison Fiori then brings down that small box and Cort buys whatever's in there...but he's going to have to munch on a small bowl of smashed potato chips.

Finally, Margaret (who's wearing a big pink wing) is asked whether the golden envelope or Curtain #2 has a gift valued at $3,183. She believe's it's in the middle curtain...yes indeed- there's a beige sofa & a chair! Left behind was a $99 check.

THE BIG DEAL: The $29,136 Bayliner ski boat is behind one of those three doors, and Jenny thinks it's located at Door #3 again because her younger daughter's three years old...I DON'T THINK SO. But she wins a slightly more expensive trip to the Divi South Winds Beach Resort in Barbados with a price tag of $6,650.

Door #1: BOAT
Door #2: His/her beach cruisers ($760)
