** But even then, a contestant winning a zonk doesn't mean they have necessarily lost. On multiple occasions through the years, the "zonk" is a coverup for a legitimate prize -- such as the time "garbage cans for every day of the week" had one of them containing a fur coat worth $5,000 or a junked washer and dryer, with dirty, holey blue jeans seeing the model rummage through the pockets to see if her "little boy" (usually the announcer) left something inside and he always did, often thousands of dollars in cash (or a check for said amount), tickets for a trip or the keys to a new car! Similarly, one Brady-era Zonk (a "Teeny Weeny Bedroom") had a $500 consolation attached to it via a piggy bank on the nightstand.
** Other times, what appears to be a "zonk" (often presented in a comedic skit) is actually a prize worth several thousand dollars, such as a half-scale antique pie wagon that was worth $3,300, said prize's value revealed only after the contestant was approached to go for the big deal and agreed.
