On next week’s Monday episode, Katie Henslin of Forest Lake, Minnesota, will face a Deal or No Deal board filled with an unprecedented 13 $1 million cases, giving her a 50/50 chance of taking home the big prize.
In an ever-ratcheting game of cat-and-mouse cruelty between Banker and player, Katie is forced to play a harrowing game. Her husband, Pete, afraid of heights,will beplaced on a hanging platform,and raised every time Katieopens a case holding $1 million. How high will Katie let her husband go before calling off the game?
The Million Dollar Mission is Deal or No Deal’s plan to reach a goal of sending home a player with the $1 million grand prize. For every contestant who doesn’t take home $1 million, Deal or No Deal will place an extra $1 million case on the board for the next player.
Over the history of the show, 11 contestants have held the $1 million in their case, but all have taken the Banker’s “deal” and foldedrather thantaking home the money. The highest “deal” thus far has been $471,000 (not a million, but not too shabby, either).
Deal or No Deal airs Mondays and Wednesdays 8:00 PM (ET) on NBC.
