Personal Quote:

I wasn't particularly suspicious. I was more nervous and scared that he was going to lose it all. Every single spin, he was risking amounts of money that were unfathomable for daytime television. I didn't want to see the results of him hitting a whammy. It was definitely the hardest moment of my career. See more »
