Brian & Ericka Reveal How The Poker Dealer Could’ve Cost Them the Million Dollars!
In an interview with The Tennessean, Ericka Dunlap explained what really happened at the final task and why we never saw them finish it on the show:
“It’s easy for us to blame her and say it was her fault, but it really was,” Dunlap said. “She was organizing her chips once we laid them on the table, and she put one of the black $500 chips in the same pile in between the blue $100 chips. We were $400 off and it was something really crazy …. When she found out that she had done that, her face was so pale. Oh gosh, she really looked like she had seen a ghost. She looked over at the producers like, ‘What do I do? They were like, ‘Count it again, guys.’ I was like, ‘You’re kidding me, right?”
So if the dealer had not made the mistake, would we have gotten a much different outcome? We’ll never know, but Ericka tells the Tennessean: “(Winners) Meghan and Cheyne needed this experience for their life’s journey. It wasn’t meant for us to win it at all.”
Also, Ericka talks to the Tennessean about now turning her energy and focus towards her music career.
