She won one million dollars on Monday’s Deal or No Deal.
She told People that she had a winning strategy from the beginning. “All along I knew I wanted to pick briefcase number four because there’s soon going to be four people in our family. It just made sense,” she says. Herfamily and friends supported her.
Only fifteen constestants have ever had the million dollar case and all of them have changed their minds as the game went on. Jessica Robinson however, was a brave soul and even turned down the banker’s final offer of 561,000.
She stated, “Honestly, if my case had $200,000 in it I would have regretted it,” Robinson admits. “I talked to my supporters and surprisingly, as I think back, they were crazy for telling me to go forward! But they knew my plan and it was coming true.”
Jessica plans on using the money to help her husband start his own business, buy a home for their family and purchase her kids some toys from toy stores and not garage sales!
The best part of winning for Jessica is the peace of mind she has gotten from the money. She feels that she will now be able to take the burden off of her husband from being the breadwinner and taking care of them.
