‘Deal Or No Deal’ A Big Deal For Playmate Case Holder

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Deal Or No Deal is not only a hit with viewers, it’s a big deal with the models who hold the briefcases.

Pilar Lastra, who holds the No. 8 suitcase on the popular NBC game show, is surprised at how she’s getting recognized on the streets for her caseload.

The interest in Deal Or No Deal has spread to Lastra’s day job, as co-host of The Playmate Hour, a daily show on Sirius Satellite Radio that dishes the dirt on various Playboy beauties.

She admits the show is a big topic of discussion, especially because many of the other case holders are former or current Playmates.

Lastra rarely speaks on Deal Or No Deal, but says she didn’t realize how emotionally involved she would become with the show.

In her words, “There was one guy from Texas who talked about how much he loved his wife and tears kept coming to my eyes.”

As much as she likes Deal Or No Deal, Lestra still loves the challenge of The Playmate Hour since it requires her to rely on her personality, not her beauty, to win viewers.
