The shadowy figure perched behind tinted glass is actually 42-year-old Peter Abbay, who bartends at the popular West Hollywood bar The Belmont.

"Peter has the easiest job on the show," a source revealed to the National Enquirer. "He's paid to sit in a chair behind tinted glass, twirl a pen in his fingers and pretend to call Howie when it's time to make a deal."

"He jokes that sometimes it's so monotonous that he'd like to throw something at the contestants to hurry them up!"
