He climbs up the mountain if a contestant does not get the correct price on the prize. Should he fall off the cliff at the top of the mountain, the contestant loses. However, if Hans/Yodely Guy stays on the mountain at the end of the game, the contestant wins.
Hans, not so high!
OH NO! STOP! STOOOOOOOOOOP!
OH NO! HE FELL OFF! GAME OVER!
This guy is watchin' Hans real good! Too bad he bid $280 on a $50 Jewelry prize.

Hey, why are you going backward Hans?
This is Hans' house
And this is Hans' family, just in case you were wondering.
Hey, why is Hans' daughter crying?
Oh no, that's why! Hans' family must've found out that he fell off the cliff again. This makes them very sad. :'(
