Breaking: The Banker on Deal or No Deal Isn’t Even a Real Banker!

A scene from Gomorrah

If you've ever watched an episode of Deal or No Deal, you understand what it feels like to have seething hatred brew inside you whenever the anonymous, shadow-cloaked mathematical genius known to the world only as the Banker systematically crushes the dreams of yet another ordinary civilian. Well, guess what? It turns out this guy isn't even a real banker, he's just a loose-lipped actor-bartender named Peter Abbey! This is worse than the day last week when we learned Santa Claus wasn't real. [National Enquirer]
