Heidi is quite the celebrity down here on the Kenai Peninsula. Today at the school I work at, the whole elementary school had an assembly, playing Deal or No Deal (no big bucks, however but rather with items kids like). There's even little girls in second grade who have been bringing native dolls to school & I wouldn't be surprised if their named Heidi:-)! Quyana to Heidi (& her Uncle Mark Hiratsuka) for encouraging native pride & culture. Congratulations, Heidi!

I was really excited for Heidi. I stayed stuck to my TV for over a week to see how she did. She is so real and enthusiastic. I love to see someone in tune with their heritage and am so pleased that she did well.

In the words of Heidi Kurtz, "Holy Smokes"! This show really went to my heart. Heidi Kurtz was so-o-o-o cute. I am truely HAPPY for her for winning all that money for her kids. She is certainly deserved of her new fortune. I found that my eyes were a little misty after the show ended. Her little dance was the high point of the show. It was GREAT!. My best to her in the future.

I think that it was great to see our 1st Nations people on TV portraying themselves in this day and age. Thank you for trying out, Heidi! And good luck with everything.

Everyone I talked to thought she was annoying and made Alaskans look like embarrassing.

Yeah, this chick was wacked out on something. She irritated the heck outta me and was super annoying, but I am glad that she won for the sake of her kids, but seriously, she was one annoying woman. I haven't watched Deal or No Deal since.

Heidi is a real cutie, so bubbly, upbeat, and real. Gosh she is a pretty young woman, and you just can't beat that upbeat nature. With three children, she surely can use the money. She has to be the most attractive young lady to ever appear on the show. Now why can't I find a doll like that in Alabama?

It has been over a year now and I still think Heidi is the most genuine spirited soul I've seen on the show. She is gorgeous and you can tell her smile comes from her heart. Her three little boys are so very handsome and blessed to have a wonderfull loving mother. I wish her all the best and Godbless her and her family!
