Meet 'Deal or No Deal' Briefcase Model #2: Taylor Clark

What is your proudest accomplishment?

One of my proudest accomplishments thus far was representing the LA Clippers at the 2016 NBA All-Star Games in Toronto. One dancer from each team was selected to be a part of the All-Star Dance Team. Having the opportunity to perform with ladies from across the league in my first season was a huge honor.

What's the most adventurous thing you've ever done?

Some of the best and most memorable adventures I have had to date were while I was performing in countries around the world as captain of the LA Clippers dance team. Getting to explore and emerge into other cultures was so inspiring.

What is one moment that made you the person you are today?

There are a series of moments that lead me to where I am today, but this last year of my life challenged me in ways like never before when I had to put my dance career on hold to have ankle surgery. It was a rough transition not being able to have that outlet for the first time in 20 years. But it gave me the opportunity to get to know myself on a deeper level and focus on expanding other areas of my career while I healed.

If you could be someone else for one day who would it be?

I'm a huge Harry Potter fan, so if I could be anyone for a day I'd want to be Harry so I could do magic and fly!

Being on 'Deal Or No Deal' is truly a surreal feeling.

What are your lucky numbers and why?

I have a few lucky numbers, but the one I see most often is 11. I am always seeing 11:11 or 1:11–– and I was born at 2:11 in the afternoon. Ironically, if you add up the 1's in 11 you get my case number: 2!

What is the first thing you'd do if you won the $1 million?

My parents have always been my biggest supporters and have played such a huge role in getting me to where I am today, so the first thing I would want to do if I won the $1 million would be to give a good portion to them to help with their retirement.

What does being on "Deal or No Deal" mean to you?

Growing up in Kansas and watching this show with my family when I was 12 years old, I would have never imagined that I would be selected to be one of the models! It's an incredible feeling to be a part of a show that already has such a legacy. Getting to work alongside Howie Mandel and this group of talented ladies is truly a blessing.

Do you or have you ever owned a business?

When I first moved to Los Angeles from Kansas, my roommate and I had an Etsy business to make extra money by designing jewelry and knitting bikinis!
