|Name:||Carol Lue Merrill|
|Known for:||Her modeling work for Let's Make a Deal.|
Prior to working on the show, Carol was a model for the short-lived game show Your Surprise Package hosted by You Bet Your Life sidekick George Fenneman.
After Let's Make A Deal ended, Carol began working in the natural health field. She has written articles on various personal health topics for two online newsletters. In 1989, Merrill moved to Hawaii and spent several years working on various environmental issues. For her environmental work, she received the Hawaii County Mayor's Award of Excellence and the First Lady's Outstanding Volunteer Award from the State of Hawaii.
From 2001 to 2009 she and her husband lived in Australia before returning to Hawaii.
In recent years, Merrill has reappeared on the Biography Channel's episode about Monty Hall, and on several episodes of Hollywood Squares (serving as a bonus prize model during the show's first Game Show Week in 2002 [Monty made appearances on the show during both Game Show Weeks]).
Carol Merrill has been married to Mark Burgess since 1985. Her previous husband, Bernie Safire, is the father of her daughter, Hillary Safire. Hillary appeared as the model for the The New Truth or Consequences in 1987 and for one week was the prize model for The New Newlywed Game that same year, and in the 1983 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. Carol's first husband was Tom Merrill, whom she married in the 1960s. Merrill is the aunt of Spy Kids star Carla Gugino, who has credited Merrill as being the person responsible for getting her interested in show business.
