Joe Manganiello Wants the 'Tea' When “Deal or No Deal Island”'s Boston Rob and Claudia Confront Kim (Exclusive)

In PEOPLE's exclusive clip from Monday's episode of the NBC competition, former 'Deal or No Deal' briefcase model Claudia Jordan calls Kim Mattina "wicked"

Deal or No Deal Island viewers can bank on some drama from self-proclaimed villain Kim Mattina.

In PEOPLE's sneak peek of Monday’s episode, Boston Rob Mariano confronts Kim, 63, after she tells him, “I am not targeting you.”

“I’m going to say something now,” Rob, 47, begins. “I’ve been nothing but nice the entire time, several people have told me that you’ve call me an [expletive].”

Claudia Jordan jumps in to say that she’d heard that, too.

“What have I done to deserve that?” Rob asks.

Kim claims she “only said that to one person,” but the Survivor alum says he “heard it from several people.”

“Since we're airing the laundry right now, let’s talk about it, because I haven’t been being fake nice to you today, being respectful because you’re my elder,” Claudia, 50, says to Kim. “But you’re wicked. Yeah, you are.”

The former Real Housewives of Atlanta star continues to accuse Kim of being “fake to me all day long” and “calling me names.”

“Lie to me one more time,” Claudia, a former Deal or No Deal briefcase model, challenges Kim in the preview.

At that point, host Joe Manganiello decides to get involved. “I need some tea,” the actor, 47, says.

Manganiello told PEOPLE he found the competition to be “such an incredible social experiment to watch.”

“You just don't know what happens until you put people into those scenarios,” the Magic Mike star said. “These different challenges are designed to test the contestants and see who wants it the worst.”

And with “life-changing money” on the line, Manganiello acknowledges “tensions are high, emotions run high.”

So far, Aron Barbell won $600,000 and chose to eliminate Brantzen Wong in the premiere episode. Last week, Kim added $225,000 to the final case in her game of Deal or No Deal and sent home Jamil Sipes.

According to Manganiello, “there's also a lot of luck involved” in the game.

“There's kind of an invisible game supporting the physical game: What numbers are people picking? What are they feeling in the moment?” he says. “There obviously is a component of Deal or No Deal but it's really an action-adventure series, like a Survivor.”
