Howie Mandel Makes ‘Deal’ With Corn Dog Girl

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A woman who makes corn dogs for a living got a very good deal from Howie Mandel.

Her name is Michelle Kearney and she was working at a Hot Dog On A Stick restaurant in Los Angeles, when the Deal Or No Deal host invited her to be a contestant right then and there.

Kearney says she had an advantage over her co-workers because, she admits, “I was the only one who knew who he was.”

Getting off work to appear on TV was, luckily, not a problem for Kearney because her sister is the manager of the restaurant.

As she puts it, “We made an executive decision to leave work.”

Although Kearney has only seen the game show a few times, she says that wasn’t a problem because “there’s no strategy whatsoever.”

Kearney’s episode airs Monday (Mar. 19), and while she hints she made “a very good deal,” she has no plans to give up making corn dogs anytime soon.
