She was happy to participate! Furthermore, Wayne says she can take the “leftovers” referring to the passed-over Toronto trip and $1500 left behind when the curtain was picked. Alternately, he offers her a brand new prize that model, Tiffany Coyne, carries out to show her. This gave her the option of two known prizes or an oversized mystery gift bag from Tiffany. Rhonda exclaims, “But on Let’s Make a Deal, I love leftovers!”

Taking the leftovers proved to be a great move on Rhonda’s part. When Tiffany revealed the bag’s contents it was a Zonk!

Undeniably, Wayne Brady was happy to see Rhonda capture a win. He acknowledges it saying, “Mama would be happy. You’re taking a trip.
