    Most Americans know of this game show hosted by Howie Mandel. A friend of the Child of Evo's has just signed a contract to be one of the models that opens a briefcase and supposedly she will get paid $600,000.00. That's just sick.

    I hate all game shows, one of the reasons i do not have a TV, as you say $600,000 is sick
    but that is what TV has come to.

    To earn that much she must have some experience, and know the physics of how those specific cases open

    I would sign a contact to do that!! What's wrong with that?? (besides the little niggling complication that most of the US would be really pissed to see an average-looking 55-year-old guy up there ready to open a briefcase?) I would like to have a little more clothing on than the ladies, though.

    I gave my TV away when I discovered that people can get married to complete strangers on those game shows.

    I'm with you, Turbo! I would SO open suitcases for $600,000!

    So, Evo, is this girl at all...smart?

    I know, lisab!!!!. There are a lot of things that I wouldn't do for $600,000, but opening a briefcase a few times a week while grinning like a fox eating $hit off a wire brush isn't one of them.

    And you would probably look pretty good in an evening gown!

    You stop that! I'm killer in a cocktail dress and heels, but evening gowns don't do anything for me!

    evo, are you saying that you WOULDN'T do it?

    My prediction:

    Game show gets boring in a few months maybe a year or so and gets canceled. $600k to open brief cases turns into $600 and some crack to do porn.

    The thing about Deal or No Deal that's interesting to me: The game goes on until it's down to a battle between the contestant's intellectual brain, and their reptile brain. The intellectual brain says, "Stop now! Take the offer - it's $150,000 of FREE MONEY!!"

    And the reptile brain hisses, "Noooo, there'sssss a one-in-ssssssseven chancccce you could get $400,000! Don't ssssssstop now!"

    And the person always listens to their reptile brain. And they wind up with a couple thousand dollars.
