This is Deal or No Deal, one of the few game shows on television where you can win a million dollars in less time than James Holzhauer did. Big up to James; that was one hell of run on Jeopardy.

Speaking of runs, CNBC's run of Deal or No Deal returned to the air with a special sneak peek episode that aired on parent network NBC right after Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final. We all know what happened the last time an episode of CNBC Deal aired on NBC. Hopefully this game goes better.

Our contestant for this game is Alabama native Andrew Shelton, a nurse who describes himself as the "world's unluckiest man." Throughout the game, Andrew shares stories about his bad luck, which ranged from a slew of injuries to losing large amounts of money.

Andrew picks case 23, the inverse of 32, the football jersey number both he and his late father wore. Now that the pleasantries are out of the way, let's get this show on the road.

Round 1
[10] - $75,000
[2] - $75
[8] - $500
[5] - $25,000
[19] - $25
[1] - $300

BANKER'S OFFER

$32,000


Andrew says NO DEAL.

Round 2
[11] - $300,000
[18] - $50
[13] - $.01
[15] - $10,000
[24] - $10

BANKER'S OFFER

$54,000


Andrew says NO DEAL.

Round 3
[21] - $1
[6] - $200,000
[17] - $100,000
[4] - $750

BANKER'S OFFER

$91,000


Andrew says NO DEAL.

Round 4
[25] - $5,000
[3] - $1,000
[26] - $200

BANKER'S OFFER

$144,000


Andrew says NO DEAL.

Round 5
[9] - $500,000
[12] - $750,000

The board at this point:

$5
$100
$400

$50,000
$400,000
$1,000,000


And the offer...

BANKER'S OFFER

$110,000


Andrew says NO DEAL.

Round 6
[14] - $100

BANKER'S OFFER

$189,000


Andrew says NO DEAL.

Round 7
[22] - $50,000

The board once again:

$5
$400

$400,000
$1,000,000


And the offer is...

BANKER'S OFFER

$275,000


Andrew struggles over the decision. His supporters recommend counter offers of $300,000 and $325,000. Believe it or not, those are both pretty close to the average, which just above $350,000. Andrew elects to use his counter offer and meet his supporters halfway. His counter offer is:

BANKER'S OFFER

$310,000


The Banker takes her time with the decision. As previous games have shown, when she calls back right away, the response is usually a refusal. But that's not the case this time. The Banker accepts Andrew's counter offer, so it's a DEAL!

But was there more money to be had in this game? It's time to find out.

Proveout
Round 8

[16] - $400,000

BANKER'S OFFER
WOULD'VE BEEN

$350,000


A somewhat realistic proveout offer, even if it is roughly $17,000 above the mean.

Round 9
[7] - $1,000,000 - Yes :D!

So, Andrew missed out on another 40 grand, but that's okay because case 23 had only $5 inside. The $400 was in case 20.

The so-called "world's unluckiest man" lucks out big time with a $310,000 win. Very well played.

Deal USA returns to its regular time of 9 PM EST on June 12 - the day I wrote this recap - with back-to-back episodes. I'll get those up here at some point. Until next time, good night and good deals.

Hey, a decent counter-offer goes rewarded!
Glad to see at least some players getting good value out of it. Any chance of it making it into a fictional series or two? :P
