Local Contestant Appears, Wins on CBS's 'Let's Make a Deal'

HOLLYWOOD, CA - A Bryan man was able to compete, and win, on an episode of CBS's "Let's Make a Deal" that aired Monday.

Bisente Mendez Jr. was able to win a trip to Bali by wheeling and dealing with host Wayne Brady - trading up from a previously won laptop and risking it all against a possible 'zonk' (the show's term for a dud prize).

In the end, the trip was traded for a chance to win a grand prize of more than $27,000. Mendez gave an incorrect guess and failed to win the big prize, but still gained a trip to Costa Rica for him and his wife.
