Credit card roulette (tv show)

I saw this show today, on a station out of Boston (same channel as phantom gourmet for those that know that show). 8 people went out to dinner at a pricy restaurant. They all must have a valid credit card with an available of at least $2,000. The credit cards are placed in a bowl and picked randomly. Whoever's card gets chosen, gets to eat for free. As you can imagine, people ordered the most expensive items on the menu (appetizers starting at $20, entree's at $40, dessert, salad, drinks).

It was down to two people and one of the guys wanted to raise the stakes to include a 40% tip rather than 20%! The final bill was over $2,000 not including tip. Pretty good show if you like food, which I think we all do
The waitress was certainly happy with a $600 tip!
