Fireman Has Burning Ambition To Be ‘Deal Or No Deal’ Case Holder

LA JOLLA, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A fireman in La Jolla, California, recently got to fulfill one of his burning ambitions – to hold a suitcase on Deal Or No Deal.

Brian Sanford is one of 26 firefighters who will be holding the suitcases on Deal Or No Deal this Monday (Mar. 19), and he discovered the job was harder than it seems.

As the 27-year-old fireman puts it, “It’s good the stage directors and models showed us how it’s done. Otherwise, I would’ve looked sloppy and lazy on TV.”

Even harder, he says, was the walk up the steep staircase to his spot on the stage.

In his words, “It’s like walking over a mountain, except they don’t want you to look at the ground.”

Sanford enjoyed his brief fame holding a briefcase, but has no illusions about replacing one of the existing models anytime soon.

He admits: “I don’t think I’m as pretty.”
