Before Meghan Markle becomes the controversial Duchess of Sussex, she was once part of Deal or No Deal. Fans may famously know her as Rachel Zane on the TV series Suits, but she first joined the reality game show as one of its briefcase girls.
Now, former Deal or No Deal host Howie Mandel urged Meghan Markle to reprise her role as briefcase model number 24 for a charity. This is to help raise money for the coronavirus relief. As Prince Harry’s wife aims to help people amid the COVID-19 pandemic, this may be the perfect chance for her.
Reprising her role for a charity
Out of the 26 briefcase models, the former actress is one of them. The 38-year-old star used to hold briefcase number 24 when she joined the show during its second season run in 2006. Over a decade has passed, its former host now wants everyone back to do a special to fight the coronavirus.
In an interview with Star Magazine, as noted by NewIdea, Howie Mandel would greatly appreciate if Meghan Markle would consider holding her attaché once again for a good cause. “I should reach out to her to do a one-model Deal or No Deal to raise money to fight this coronavirus pandemic,” he said.
The 64-year-old television host held a charity version of the popular game show last year. So, as the COVID-19 pandemic continuously grapples many countries, he would not mind doing another special again. “I’d love to resurrect it and find a way to do more,” he added.
Everyone knows how charity-minded Meghan Markle is. So, Howie Mandel hopes she will consider reprising her role and hold her iconic attaché once more.
Anyhow, it’s only to raise money for charity. “Don’t forget the little people,” he said.
