There are certain things that simply break my heart. Injustice, unfairness, cruelty, malice, hatred and unnecessary tragedies, crush me.
Such a acts are mind boggling, as the magic of life comes from working together, as a family, as a team, as a community.
Though this moment looks like a tragic defeat, it actually marks an emotional victory.
Seconds before this moment, the contestant had just taken the deal. When asked which case she would’ve opened next, she pointed to me and said “Sweet 16!!” I was shaking and could barely breathe. I was still terrified even though she had just taken the Deal (meaning she was in the clear; her winnings were secured). Howie cued me to open my case and when I looked inside and saw that I held The Million $ (meaning she lost the million and her deal would have dropped drastically), my knees crippled out of sheer relief and joy that she had taken the deal and that I hadn’t been the bearer of dream smashing news.
I had no idea I was going to become so connected to each contestant; rooting for their dreams and sharing their excitement and nervousness. I wanted each and every one of our contestants to win, because we have truly wonderful souls on our amazing show. 🤩🙌🏼
In a world filled with far too much hatred and anger, I can only hope that we ALL can work together, to build a better future, full of tears of joy and gratitude vs tears of pain and sorrow. Love Always, JLee aka Your #SWEET16 🖤🤟🏼
