It was Steve's first time working with 9News anchor Corey Rose. Someone should have warned Corey to go light on the hairspray and wear fire retardant clothes. She also should have never handed Steve a $20 bill. During this segment, Steve performed the Burning Money experiment. Soak a bill in rubbing alcohol and water, then light it on fire.
