The 27-year-old pregnant stay-at-home mom from Sandee, Utah, stuck to her guns—and turned down the banker's $561,000 offer—to become Deal or No Deal's first-ever million-dollar winner.

WHAT WILL YOU DO WITH THE MONEY?
Now we [can] buy a house in Austin. We're moving close enough to family but not in their backyard. I'll buy my kids toys from stores instead of garage sales. To be able to take the burden off of my husband being the breadwinner—that [gives] me peace of mind.

YOU TURNED DOWN THE BANKER—DO YOU ALWAYS TRUST YOUR INSTINCTS?
I want to say I do, but no. I'm never that strong. That was crazy—that was a crazy person that played that game.

HOW DID YOU CELEBRATE?
When we got back to Utah my husband and I went out and ate our weight in food.
