‘Deal Or No Deal’ Babe Begs Contestants To Call Her Number

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One of the suitcase holders on the NBC game show, Deal Or No Deal, is having a hard time dealing with being ignored.

Leyla Milani is the woman who usually holds the suitcase labeled “No. 13” and jokes that she’s “not a happy camper” since hardly anyone picks her.

Originally, she says she was happy to be No. 13. As she puts it, “I’m not superstitious and I figured I’d be popular. You know, ‘Lucky 13.’”

That hasn’t been the case. In fact, there have been times where she’s had to stand up on stage in “uncomfortable shoes” for three hours because nobody picked her.

It’s their loss. One time, she was holding $2.5 million and another time, she had $75,000, the largest amount left on the board.

Deal Or No Deal, which airs Mondays and Fridays, is taping today (Mar. 10) and tomorrow (Mar. 11), and Milani hopes letting people know about her frustration will get them to pick her more because, she points out, “They’ll probably end up with a lot more money.”
