    I enjoyed the blow by blow of your day! Was always curious about how the behind the scenes stuff went down. Thank you for sharing. Love the show and happy that you got to at least get called!

      Let’s Make a Deal is the one game show that encourages people to bring bags (so you can keep random stuff, like for the mini-deals at the end) in there! Good luck! I’d love to hear how it goes 🙂


I'd love to hear from you! So whaddya say?
