West Allis man wins
$1,500 on game show
West Allis - West Allis native Chris Giblin won $1,500 on the "Let's Make a Deal" television show that aired April 25 on CBS Channel 58.
Dressed as a cuckoo clock, he was chosen from the audience to be a contestant on a show that he has watched and loved since he was a kid. That's when Monty Hall was emcee.
But today's emcee, Emmy Award-winner Wayne Brady, is a wonderful successor, Giblin said.
"He's as much fun if not more so in person," he said.
Giblin and a friend who lives in California went to the Sunset Bronson Studios in Hollywood for the taping in early January.
