This is not a "stage whisper" but simply a casual exchange. This happens in a short space of time as the spectator is joining me onstage. I act as if I already knew to the spectator I ask, this is all about attitude. I already knew and I am pleased about it. I believe this. I have to believe this. If I believe this, the spectator is more likely to. I do not release my grip of the spectator's hand until we both reach the stage. I then place them to the left of the stage standing behind, and away, from the tables ensuring the audience will see the envelopes clearly and not have their view blocked in any way, to do so would be to lessen the impact of the effect.
Now we have both reached center stage I say one of the two the following things:
"I want to make something very clear. Whichever color you are thinking about Rachel, will become "yours". There will be no going back; your answer will be final. For the first time tell everyone what color your are thinking of?"
Or: "I want to make something very clear. Whichever color you are thinking about Rachel, will be the envelope that I will keep. I will give you the other. There will be no going back your answer will be final. For the first time tell everyone what color your are thinking of? So this now becomes mine and the other yours"
Obviously I can now make my statement in what I like to think of as a reversed magicians choice. It however appears extremely fair. I simply change the statement to fit which of the envelopes the spectator selects, avoiding giving the wrong envelope to the spectator.
I also ask the spectator to: "For the first time tell everyone what color you t bought of"
As this is said I gesture to the audience at large. The spectator assumes I mean tell everyone else, those people who do not know.
I am now in the position to give or keep the envelope selected and finally reveal 1 he climax
