During an interview in 2013 with Esquire, Meghan was eager to change the topic when asked about her time on the show. “I would put that in the category of things I was doing while I was auditioning to try to make ends meet. I went from working in the U.S. Embassy in Argentina to ending up on Deal, ” the former actress revealed.
Meghan also revealed that she didn’t have the winning briefcase, so she spent a lot of time just standing on stage. “I would end up standing up there forever in these terribly uncomfortable and inexpensive five-inch heels just waiting for someone to pick my number so I could go and sit down.”
