What is WRONG with these people?: "Deal or No Deal"

So tonight was another "stunt" episode of "Deal or No Deal," this time, the '70s and '80s. I'm SICK of the stunts and it's just plain tacky. That being said, the thing that really, gets my goat is that GREED is overwhelming rational behavior on this show. Over the last few weeks, people have left with .01, $5 and $100 all because they got greedy and didn't think about what's really on the board and their chances of walking away with some good money. Tonight's contestant during the '70s portion had an offer of $124,000 with a board of $750,000, $100,000, $50 and $50,0000 and he refused the offer. DUMB!! I couldn't stomach the last hour and instead turned over to "The Amazing Race."
We'll see if any stupid mistakes on this show raises my blood pressure.
