But host Howie Mandel is nothing if not determined, and the Million Dollar Mission continues this week as Oklahoma firefighter, Ryan Gleghorn, faces a board with 12 — count ‘em, 12! — million dollar briefcases. We saw Ryan open all but four of those cases last night. Will he be able to take the heat and continue on to the end? Will he (finally!) be the first contestant ever to take home the $1 million?
Deal or No Deal reinstated its Million Dollar Mission in January 2008. For every contestant who does not win the big prize, Deal or No Deal will add an extra $1 million case to the board for the next contestant, in a fierce determination to see a contestant go all the way.
Deal or No Deal airs on Wednesday, 8:00 PM (ET) on NBC.
