Our camera-shy recipient asked us to record a second take with one of her colleagues. We preserved both recordings for your viewing pleasure.
When recording real people (not actors), we get real responses. And those reactions are not always “TV worthy.” Most emotions are felt, not seen. That is why game show producers usually pick overly-enthusiastic audience members and why acting is a job. We know that all recipients have been extremely grateful, and the most reserved ones have mentioned that they still think about the surprise tip they received years later.
Big Fat Thanks to our donors, noted at the end of this video. This tip would not have happened without you. Special thanks to Robert Berganza for being our volunteer of the day.
