Default Deal or no deal - please someone watch it now

I think the contestant is on the verge of an eppy....

Never seen this this shit before, so a new experience for me...

Lets say I may block the program on the the parental control for myself.

Imagine the price is right circa 1985 and multiply the hysteria by a factor of 5.....

I've stumbled on it a couple of times and I have noticed that you need to be nuts, high on drugs or drunk to be allowed in.. if you are normal you don't qualify it seems..

Ah Deal or No Deal, more commonly referred to in the Titchski household as "Greedy or Stupid".

I watched the UK version at Christmas and it was nothing like the pile of bollocks that gets put on here. Over in 30 minutes, no real pahlavah and the banker might offer you a cake as well as some cash.

Naaah, the Price is Right competely trumped Deal or No Deal nonsense, what with Bruce making inuendo's at the girls and no doubt giving them a Brucie Bonus behind the scenes Don't see Howie Mandel or whatever you call him carrying on as much in these politically correct days!

Sorry.......I just can't stand the price is right,deal or no deal or any of those types of 'game' shows...I always feel very embarrassed for the contestants,they're SO greedy.......I'm always pleased for the people who win lotteries,or get 'windfalls' like inheritances.........but those game shows........just how much is enough?........Sophia

I might have to start watching this if the comedy factor is high.

The UK version is far better! I have been watchin recently on my little trip back! Noel Edmonds is fab but like the contestants on the US version his wardrobe is a tad funky to say the least as for his hair well that's another story!

Post Re: Deal or no deal - please someone watch it now

But isn't that the case with a lot of "things" here in the USA? Over the top, over dramatic etc. I have concluded that the reason a lot of people watch shows like Deal or No Deal and American Idol isn't to actually see someone win $1,000,000 or become a pop star, it's to watch the absolute turds who somehow qualify to be contestants (please note I said "a lot" and not "all.") Do I watch Idol? Yes I do, purely for the entertainment value of Cowell vs everyone else. Do I watch Deal? No, I don't.

Hi NCBrit, welcome to BE! I couldn't agree more with you about watching the turds that turn up and behave like lunatics! American Idol has been particularly entertaining with no end of turds! I don't watch US Deal or No Deal, can't stand it and the way those girls take a sneaky peak in the case first then their faces says it all!
