Contestants can experience some stressful events and decisions during game shows, as they have to test their skills or hope for luck to go their way.

Viewers saw it during an episode of The Price Is Right, as one contestant achieved fortune by spinning the big Wheel after losing an SUV.

Another contestant wowed viewers with impressive bidding skills during the Showcase Showdown.

During CBS’ Let’s Make a Deal, contestants also test their skills and luck as they weigh their options for potential prizes.

One game on the popular game show featured a contestant testing her luck by rolling the dice and deciding whether to continue for bigger prizes or walk away.

It even had host Wayne Brady telling the woman, “You have a problem,” during her on-stage moments.

Wayne says Let’s Make a Deal contestant has ‘a problem’

During the recent Let’s Make a Deal episode, a contestant named Jolene in a birthday cupcake costume, received an offer of $10,000 from the show’s host.

However, announcer Johnathan Gray added that she had to win Tic-Tac-Toe. That involved her rolling a pair of dice to match numbers in spots on the gameboard.

“I’ll give you $1,000 right now to walk away,” Wayne told her during one moment.

The woman said she was going to keep going. She had more rolls of the dice, and the offers from Wayne increased.

He said she could take $2,000 to walk away and then offered $3,000 so she “could do something nice” for herself.

“As tempting as that is… I think I want to roll,” she told the host.

“I think our session’s over now,” Wayne told her but then stopped her.

“Before you roll those dice…May I?” he said, taking them from her.

“This is an act of trust. I’m gonna take the dice from you. You have a problem,” he told her.

That’s because Wayne increased the offer to $4,000, the highest yet, which seemed to leave the woman momentarily contemplating taking his deal.

“I think I’m gonna roll,” she revealed, with Wayne telling her she had one roll left.

That was a wise and profitable move on her part, as she rolled five and achieved a Tic-Tac-Toe with her X’s on the board.

“Happy Birthday, Cupcake!” Wayne told her as she celebrated the exciting moment.
