It’s been a big week for Ellen. First she bests TV daytime talk show megastar, Oprah Winfrey, in the annual Harris poll. Now the host of The Ellen DeGeneres Show gets to don a slinky dress and banter with Howie on Deal or No Deal.
Tonight, DeGeneres will surprise Deal contestant Shequila Farrelly, of Redstone Abenal, Alabama by being the first ever celebrity briefcase model (slinky green dress and all).
Deal or No Deal is hot in the middle of its Million Dollar Mission, a twist to the game created to guarantee that a contestant will (finally!) go home with the big $1 million prize. Each night that the mil isn’t taken home, Deal puts another $1 million briefcase in the kitty — and will keep doing it until someone wins. Tonight, Farrelly will play with 7 $1 million briefcases in play.
Deal or No Deal airs Mondays at 9:00 PM (ET) and Wednesdays at 8:00 PM (ET) on NBC.
