Julie Snyder had a farm,
E-I-E-I-O.
And on her farm, she had some cash,
E-I-E-I-O.
With a half-mill here, and a handout there,
Here an offer, there a deal, everywhere a big win.

Oh, hi there. Please excuse the feeble attempt at a song parody above. This is Le Banquier, where all the money is right in front of you; all you have to do is find it.

You may be asking yourself, "What the devil is that crazy Canadian getting up to this time? Surely he's tried every trick in the book by now." Not quite. The reason for the brief musical interlude is because tonight's contestant is a veterinarian and huge animal lover, and we've got an animal-themed show as a result. Say hello to Karine Arpin of Ville Lemoyne, Quebec, who is accompanied by her cow, Maggie. Yes, she actually had a cow with her on set. That might be a first.

Keeping with the animal theme, 26 random celebrities, each of which is accompanied by an animal (mostly cats and dogs, although one has a fancy hen) are guarding the cases. And just for added measure, Julie has a hedgehog, while Karine is joined by her dog. Karine opts for case 10, and the celebrity holding it has a cat in his arms that looks like it weighs 100 pounds. It's a Maine Coon, and they're known for being large. But I digress.

All right, now that the formalities are out of the way, it's juice and jam time.

Round 1
[14] - Surprise / $50 - The Surprise is a trip the the Magdalen Islands (3 nights, 2 people) to check out seals, which includes a helicopter tour ($7,400).
[2] - $1,000
[5] - $300,000
[3] - $200
[22] - $175,000
[23] - $300

BANKER'S OFFER

$41,000


Karine says REFUSÉE.

Round 2
[26] - $750
[13] - $25,000
[24] - $500,000
[17] - $5,000
[6] - $500

BANKER'S OFFER

$49,000


Karine says REFUSÉE.

Round 3
[4] - $150,000
[19] - $400,000
[12] - $10
[9] - Sunwing / $400 - Karine wins a trip to Aruba, her second trip of the night ($8,000).

BANKER'S OFFER

$37,000


Karine says REFUSÉE.

Round 4
[25] - $5
[7] - $75
[16] - $50,000

With $200,000 as the highest remaining right-side amount, Karine faces this:

BANKER'S OFFER

$44,000


Karine says REFUSÉE.

Round 5
[18] - $1
[21] - $100,000

Things are starting to look precarious, but the top two amounts, $125,000 and $200,000 are still in play, and the offers are trending upwards, albeit slightly.

BANKER'S OFFER

$51,000


Karine says REFUSÉE.

Round 6
[15] - $100

That will certainly help. Only two blues left to take out as we get this offer:

BANKER'S OFFER

$61,000


Karine says REFUSÉE.

Round 7
[8] - $20

Could Karine wind up as the Comeback Kid? It's starting to look that way, and the Banker doesn't like that. Cue the offer.

BANKER'S OFFER

$81,000


Karine says REFUSÉE.

Round 8
[11] - $0.01 - No more blues :D!

This game was heading for a crash a few rounds ago, but Karine holds the advantage now. The Banker thinks this can stop her...

BANKER'S OFFER

$118,000


...but it can't. Our veterinarian evidently has nerves of steel, as she says REFUSÉE.

Round 9
[1] - Vidéotron Mobile

And with the $10,000 bonus secured, we have one hell of a final two, and one hell of a final offer:

BANKER'S OFFER

$185,000


Stats Break: The mean between $125,000 and $200,000 is $162,500. But as we've seen in the past, this Banker frequently pitches above-average offers. This looks like something you'd see in a proveout, and yet Karine has managed to get it in live play.

Evidently, our contestant knows an AMO when she sees one, so she says ACCEPTÉE.

Now for the moment of truth. Did Karine miss out on an additional 15 grand, or did she score the first OPW of the season? Cases 10 and 20 are opened simultaneously to give us the answer:

[10] - $125,000
[20] - $200,000

Well, how do you like that? Karine made a profit, and did so in amazing fashion. Even if she had opened her own case, she'd have still walked away with a six-figure payday. That certainly doesn't happen very often.

Before the show ends, Karine is awarded a whale-watching tour from Les Croisières AML worth $4,500. Anything to squeeze in one more handout, right, Julie?

Persistence pays off for Karine, to the tune of $223,700 in cash and stuff. That's quite the takeaway.

Next time, it'll be raining men on the set of Le Banquier. Wondering what that's all about? Join me next week to find out. Until then, good night, and good deals.
