Paul Nelson, KSL NewsradioTwo Utah women are getting ready for their national television debut this month on the hit show "Deal Or No Deal." So, what is it like to be on one of the most popular game shows in the country?
For a brief moment, the lives Aubrey Wentworth and her twin sister, Annie Hewlett, revolved around those four magic little words.
"Deal or no deal?"
The two women will be appearing together on the episode airing March 19 on KSL TV. Wentworth says she never knew it would be so difficult to pick a number between one and 26.
Aubrey Wentworth: "It was really, really hard, and I was nervous every single time a case opened up."
Wentworth says the producers of the show do a great job of building up the tension for their contestants. For example, moments like these:
"Open the case."
Wentworth says each model is told to wait before they reveal what's in a case.
Aubrey Wentworth: "Just like, five seconds, but still five seconds when you want to see what's in your case is a long time."
As for host Howie Mandel, he may not be as strange as some people would expect.
Aubrey Wentworth: "He was really nice. He let us kiss him on his cheek."
They got to kiss Howie Mandel, who admittedly afraid is of germs. But, he's apparently selective on which germs he's afraid of.
Aubrey Wentworth: "He lets people do anything they want except shake his hand."
Nelson: "They gave you that warning? He will not shake hands."
Aubrey Wentworth: "Yeah. They gave us that warning."
The big questions is, how did they do?
Nelson: "How much did you win?"
Aubrey Wentworth: "I can't say. You have to watch the show."
Even if you could look into Wentworth's bank account, you still wouldn't know how much she won. They haven't paid her yet.
Aubrey Wentworth: "They just said, ‘We'll just pay you 90 days after it airs.'"
Wentworth can't even say if she was offered more money because she appeared with her twin sister. But, she has a very good reason.
Aubrey Wentworth: "You could be sued for a million dollars if you tell."
Nelson: "Even if you didn't win a million dollars?"
Aubrey Wentworth: "Even if you didn't win a million dollars, you'll be sued for that much. I can't really say much but we went for it. So, you'll have to see, but we went for it."
Whatever that means.
