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. Surprisingly, the money does not burn, because the water evaporates while the alcohol is burning. The evaporation cools the bill and prevents it from burning.
When she wasn’t looking, Steve switched the bills and lit the fake one on fire. Corey was stunned and believed he had burned her money. He also shot her with the fire extinguisher just to wrap it all up.
