Wayne Brady, host of Let’s Make a Deal, is the kind of game show host who seems prepared for anything. Contestants Steve and Jessie tested Brady, however, when Jessie gave an unexpected response while Brady was doing his usual light conversation before they launched into the wheeling and dealing. Brady asked how long they’d been together, and Jessie found this hysterical. But Steve, dead serious, said “About six months.” Brady said it was “newish,” then Jessie broke in: “Oh, we’re friends. We’re just friends, but he wants it to be—”
… It gets worse because Steve’s discomfort was immediate and he interrupted her, saying “Can we talk about this, uh, not in front of everyone?” He looked incredibly glum. The audience laughed, Brady looked shocked, and though Steve said “It’s complicated,” Jessie brightly interjected, “I’m single, guys, I’m single!” Steve said “What?” Jessie said, “Oh, no, no, we’re really good friends!” in an apparent effort to placate the guy, and for a moment, the usually quick-witted Wayne Brady looked like he’d rather be anywhere but on his game show.
