4/2/2012 Results

LMaD: Last week, nearly $200K in cash & prizes were won, but we came SO CLOSE to giving away a $75,045 Super Deal last Friday. Monday's at the start of this week is worth $73,515, including a pair of European trips in the Big Deal of the Day.

Debra & James (dressed as Hippies & they've been together for 41 years) play Go Big or Go Home for lots of stuff including the 2012 Toyota Yaris L (Curtain #3). For this edition, the SILVER ENVELOPE space has been replaced by the $1K Elite Appliances gift tag and the prize space near the top-right corner has been replaced by one for the SMALL BOX.

(Note: We got a shot of the '12 Mazda3 Sport instead of said Yaris by mistake.)

1. 1: $250
2. 4: DOUBLE ($500)(Bad roll: 3)
3. 4: DOUBLE ($1K)(BR: 5)
4. 1: DOUBLE ($2K)(need a 6 for the car, but a 4 will wipe them out)
5. 4: GO HOME- PAINFUL LOSS
$50 Consolation Roll- WINS $250

The first three singular traders today are Karen (a speech therapist dressed as a cash prize behind Curtain #3), Jorge (a ladies' dress designer & model coach) and Jennifer (a high school cheer coach dressed as a present). This morning's Ca$hbox Deal has said item replaced by the Mini Vault.

Jennifer's Round: BIG BOX- AjMadison/Maytag red washer/dryer ($2,798; she needed that as a birthday present)

Jorge's Round: MV (because of his friends)
CURTAIN #2- Kawasaki motorcycle ($6,299)

Karen's Round: SMALL BOX (Tiffany in front of CURTAIN #2)- Banana heels
MV (Jorge)- $3,360

Shannon (dressed as a pirate girl) plays Dodge the Joker.

#1: 8 OF HEARTS
#2: 7 OF CLUBS ($2K)
#3: KING OF SPADES ($3K)- BAILOUT TO BUY CURTAIN #1
#4: JOKER (so she could've made $5K if she started from the end of the line)

CURTAIN #1- Trip to The Fairmont Chateau Whistler ($11.5K; she needed a vacation bad)

PERFECT ROUND

Michele (a laboratory scientist dressed as a flamingo) plays Remember When for the Ford Focus S (Curtain #3).

Today's Titles: "Liar Liar", "The Truman Show", "The Cable Guy", "Dumb and Dumber" and "The Mask"
GUESSES: "The Mask" and "Dumb & Dumber"

For now, she passes up what's in the SB (Tiffany in front of the middle curtain)- the $1,640 S.F. getaway & $1.5K spending money.

"The Mask"- 1994
"Liar Liar"- '97
"The Truman Show"- '98

Another $1K's added to the Sure Thing Jackpot...but she's going all the way because she feels confident.

"Dumb & Dumber"- '94 ("The Cable Guy": '96- not revealed on TV)

PERFECT ROUND #2!

Sound Effects Deal Match-Up: Donald (Jonathan) vs. Adam (dressed as a hot dog)(Wayne)
WINNER- Adam

Adam's Choices: SE or CURTAIN #1 (46 inches)?
PICK: SE- ODEON BBQ & Barbeques Galore patio heater ($2,898)
CURTAIN #1- 3-D home entertainment package ($5.5K)

(Note: For coming up w/ the real-estate theme in that round, real-estate agent Sandra gets a $100 bonus.)

THE BIG DEAL: Adam could've very well gone for this had he gone w/ that curtain; instead, it'll be Jorge. He selects Door #2 on the advice of the Peanut Gallery...GOT IT- he might be going to London ($10,323) & a Wyndham Vacation Rentals hotel/resort in France ($13,192)(& he said going to France was one of his bucket list items)!

#1- Dining room ($8,826)
#3- Digital camera/camcorder w/ 500 GB hard drive ($2,488)

SUPER DEAL #3: But as the will.i.am song "The Hardest Ever" says, Jorge's GOING HARD OR GOING HOME! His favorite color's blue, so he's choosing the Sapphire envelope. Let me point out that every time the SD was won on the syndicated version of this show back in the '70s, Door #3 was the winner. That envelope he just chose is in the same position. In the end, has Jorge just made "Deal" history?...






















































































































































SAPPHIRE- BREAK BANK!

...YES- AND JUST LIKE MOST OF THE RUN OF "WIN BEN STEIN'S MONEY", LET THAT FAKE MONEY RAIN FROM THE CEILING!!!!!!!!

HE'S JUST BECOME THE SHOW'S ALL-TIME BIGGEST WINNER ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD W/ $73,515 IN CASH & TRIPS!!!!

To top it all off, Jason (dressed as a fried egg) knew to show Jonathan a paintbrush good for $500!

When we add everything up that did make the air this morning, A NEW ONE-EPISODE WORLD RECORD TOTAL HAS ALSO BEEN SET- $108,956!!!!
