"Let's Make a Deal" 1/30- twitter EPISODE

For some portions of this special show, a monitor's used at the home base. Also, the Mon. intro reel's used & Jonathan inserts a hashtag just before introducing Mr. Brady. Tiffany's wearing a purple dress as requested by you.

To start this show off, you peeps decided...that Sherissa Scott (a church & college department worker from Clovis dressed as money) from Clovis should play THE GREAT ESCAPE FOR UP TO $1.5K &/OR THE BMW 128i (Std., Paint) WORTH $32,645! They put up the game pieces on the fly; she really needs a car because she's been wanting to buy one for a while.

TIME- :30
KEY(S): #2- RECORD FIVE-SECOND EXACTA!!!!!

SHERISSA HAS ALSO SET A NEW ALL-TIME NON-BD WINNINGS RECORD!!!!

(Note: At this point in the tapings, when this game's won, WIN's shown on all of the screens w/ an alternating blue & red background.)

VB: Record-breaking TGE Win

And for the record, where the BD is today was also decided by the twitter followers- I guarantee you it'll be behind DOOR #2.

Orchid's FD Decision (Yoga teacher): BB ($800 offered by Dosmo Thompson)- SAMSUNG washer/dryer w/ seventh GENERATION detergent ($3,082)
Ruben's FD Decision (a self-employed painter & paper hanger dressed as a blue baby): SB (in front of CURTAIN #2)($1,301 offered by Netstryke)- Moss pumps
Johanna Middleton's FD Decision (an assistant to an art dealer): SE ($2,513 offered by Jami C. Brown)- Five-night trip to theReef

I can officially announce at this moment that because of what Sherissa did at the top of the show, this is the first aired time on the current version of "Deal" that somebody won more than the BD's value!
