La Crosse local wins big on “Let’s Make a Deal”, surprises his mom with prize

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – If you were watching the popular CBS game show “Let’s Make a Deal” Monday afternoon, you probably saw a La Crosse local win a really awesome prize.

Zak Chaouki, an entrepreneur and a Logan High graduate, made an appearance on the show – dressed in a very unique outfit.

Lets Make A Deal Local

When host, Wayne Brady,  called Chaouki up to the stage the first thing he did was give his mom a big shoutout.

Then they jumped right into a card game, where he had a chance to win a virtual dinner party, a hot tub & hammock, or a brand new car.

The cards were definitely in his favor because Chaouki won a Mazda 3 worth more than $21,000!

But you won’t see him driving around on this new set of wheels…

“When I found out I won, this was just the perfect gift for [my mom] because she’s a teacher out in Onalaska. This year especially has been really difficult for her. She’s been working 60-70 hour weeks. It’s really cool to give something back to her like this,” Chaouki said Monday.

Chaouki’s family all watched the episode together.

At the end of the show, he told his mom about the big surprise, and they headed right over to Dahl Mazda to check out her new car.
