Weekend Replay: Richie Bell Loses Fortune on “Deal or No Deal”
I usually like to refrain from calling Deal or No Deal contestants psychotic or crazy or just plain idiotic. The show’s all about gambling to begin with. A semi-crazy gamble could make you pretty smart and leave you with a million. However, when you lose $600,000; it’s being idiotic. Contestant Richie Bell, on Wednesday’s primetime episode, was down to three cases: $1, $1,000,000; and $1,000,000 (it’s the Million Dollar Mission again). His offer was over $600,000; which he rejected. One of the million dollar cases is left, and his final offer between a million and a buck was over $400,000. He rejected that as well and took home $1 plus a bit of bonus money from earlier. But in terms of the game, $1. Absolutely the dumbest move I have ever seen on the show. Take a look.
As a side note, is there some reason this show’s not in HD? It’s practically made for it yet they haven’t taken the leap. Come on.
