Local high school teacher hopes to appear on NBC game showPosted: Updated:
SPOKANE, Wash. - A teacher at Mt. Spokane High School has gone to great lengths to get the attention of the producers who make the popular NBC program "Deal or No Deal".
Steve Allen read the show's website and found there were two ways to apply to be on the show. He could have applied in person, or he could send in a 5-minute video. He opted for the latter.
"We love the show!" said Allen. "We watch it faithfully. If I'm not here we're taping the show."
He's a fan of the show, but he's also in need of the money. If he gets on the show he plans to donate his winnings to adoption advocates. Allen himself adopted two girls from China - Lilly and Abby.
Of course, it takes a lot more than one man to make a five-minute video, which is where Mt. Spokane High School comes in. 1,500 students participated in a mock "Deal or No Deal" show, with the school's baseball coach playing the part of Howie Mandell. He shaved his head for the occasion.
Hundreds of students have sent letters to the show in hopes of Allen becoming a contestant.
