Military fans won’t want to miss this week’s Deal or No Deal, as the show features an Army hero and a Presidential visit.
Captain Joseph Kobes, from Sumner, Washington, will play against the infamous Deal or No Deal banker, hoping to win the $1 million briefcase to help his parents pay off their house. Kobes, who won a Purple Heart and Bronze Star for his service in Iraq, served three tours of duty, one of them after he sustained injuries from a truck explosion.
Kobes will get a very special visit while on the show. President George W. Bush will make a surprise guest appearance to deliver a message to Kobes personally.
LeTia Soney from McKinney, Texas, will take the stage after Kobes. After Soney and Kobes have both finished playing their games, each will get to spin the Deal Wheel, which could double (or triple!) their winnings… or cut their winnings in half.
This week will also mark the first episode where viewers will have a chance to vote for the next Briefcase Model.
Deal or No Deal airs Monday, April 21st, at 8:00 PM (ET) on NBC.
