Potential contestants wait in cold line for Deal or No Deal auditions
Despite subzero temperatures, over 8,000 waited in line outside Denny Hecker's Inver Grove Heights car dealership to try out for NBC's "Deal or No Deal."
Potential contestants started lining up before dawn, bundled in warm clothing, waiting for hours for their chance to win $1 million, reported the Star Tribune.
People had 30 seconds to make themselves stand out among the crowds, the Pioneer Press said. Some did the chicken dance, some wore costumes, others just talked about all the good things they'd do with the money.
The Pioneer Press story was a little longer and spent more time talking to the people in line.
