|Vincent Perez of Menifee on the set of "Let's Make a Deal" with host Wayne Brady.|
Vincent Perez, an In N Out employee, won fast food when he chose a prize behind a curtain instead of the trip, which was valued at $10,000, in a small box.
Contestants must choose between two hidden prizes with the possibility of one of them being a less desirable prize. When Perez was offered the choice between a prize in a small silver box and a prize behind a large curtain, Perez chose the curtain.
Perez said he felt his chances for a big prize behind the curtain were high because the most big prizes were given on the first episodes of each season.
"I don't really regret it. I would have chosen the curtain no matter what over anything because I was going for a car," said Perez.
Perez attended the game show alongside his family after his mother told him, "You might be able to get on the show. They like crazy, hyper people."
Perez, who was dressed in a toga costume and excited to meet the show's host, Wayne Brady, was chosen as a contestant.
After Brady learned Perez knew sign language, Brady had the aspiring sign language teacher sign some dialogue.
Perez said he learned sign language in high school at Paloma Valley High School.
"I was great at it, so I said, 'Hey, I should start a career with this'," said Perez.
Brady awarded $200 to Perez for signing dialogue on the show.
