Waikapu man lands $260,000 ’deal’ in TV game show
By KEHAULANI CERIZO, Staff Writer


WAIKAPU – Waikapu resident Brad Falcon saw his win on NBC’s “Deal or No Deal” on Wednesday night as a way to broadcast the aloha spirit for the nation to see.

And earning $260,000 wasn’t too shabby, either.

Falcon, a 37-year-old home remodeler, was the first person from Hawaii to land a spot on the popular NBC game show hosted by Howie Mandel. The game tests the nerve of contestants faced with choices of dollar amounts hidden in briefcases or offers to settle before all the briefcases are opened.

With his emotional highs and lows on display for a national television audience, Falcon ended by choosing a deal of $260,000.

Throwing shaka signs and sending Maui shout outs – especially those aimed at his family – Falcon had the Los Angeles crowd laughing much of the time as he hammed it up onstage.

“I really felt like bringing Hawaii to L.A. is important for everyone to see the aloha, the hugs,” said Falcon. “And I’m getting to bring my friends, my community with me (in representing the islands).”

Meanwhile, a group of about 40 friends and family members watched Falcon’s experience on a projector at his Waikapu Gardens home block party Wednesday from 7 to 8 p.m.

“If you know him for even five minutes, you can tell he’s really amazing,” said his former co-worker Yukio Kina of Pukalani during the start of the show. “Regardless of what he walks away with, he’s definitely going to be grateful.” .. Continue reading at Maui News here.

How fun to see someone you know on TV! I can't watch that show, usually, because the suspense stresses me out. How weird is that?

Great to see a Hawaii boy do good, and represent Hawaii in such a great way. I know Brads Dad from years back and he was such a great guy to me, it was awesome to see him in the audience. It's been 15 years since we've seen each other. I know he really was proud of the kids. Nice to see they turned out so well. Congratulations. and send a shout out to Roger from Dan Martin AKA (numbnuts)

We happened to catch Brad's episode (because he was such a fun guy) and I wondered if you had any Hawaii connection to him. How funny that you actually know him :)
