As if Deal or No Deal’s infamous “Banker” isn’t villainous enough. On April 28th, his seat will be taken by one of the most notorious sci-fi villains of all time.
In this special “Star Wars” edition of Deal or No Deal, the Banker will be replaced by Darth Vader, as Star Wars die-hards, Elise McCrillis and Brad Flinchum duel one another in a winner-take-all grudge match. Each player will play a solo game; whoever has the most money at the end of the night will take home the winnings of both games (potentially close to $2 million!).
As McCrillis begins her solo game, she’s surprised to find that the models have been replaced by Star Wars Imperial Storm Troopers, and that she has a “guest supporter,” Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia). For Flinchum’s game, the models are dressed as Princess Leia (circa Return of the Jedi “slave” Leia). He gets surprise supporters, too: Chewbacca and R2D2.
Who will fare better against Darth Vader and take home the big bucks? Catch this special Star Wars episode of Deal or No Deal on Monday, April 28th at 8:00 PM (ET) on NBC.
