Storyline

Monty Hall hosts this hilarious half-hour gameshow in which audience contestants picked at random, dressed in ridiculous costumes, try to win cash or prizes by choosing curtain number 1, 2 or 3. Before the contestant could decide, Monty would tempt them with something from within a small box, or flash cash in front of them. It was the contestant's chance to win something big, but deep down, they knew they might get "zonked" by choosing the wrong curtain. Some contestants actually ended up with a donkey or pig, or other rotten prize, and some actually came out with cars, cash or jewelry. Near the end of every show, Monty would give out cash prizes to anyone carrying whatever it was he asked for. You should see some of the strange things people carry!

Trivia

When the show first aired, the contestants wore normal everyday business attire. Monty Hall recalls that during one of the early airings, a contestant came dressed as a chicken, and he picked her. A few days later, someone else wore an outlandish costume and once again he picked her. The rest, as they say, is history. See more »

It's a classic
10 December 2001 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

If you have The Game Show Network you should make it a point to check out Let's Make a Deal. The show can be nerve-racking, but is fun to see all the prizes everyone wins. Host Monte Hall and the late announcer Jay Stewart (who plays a larger role than most game show announcers) have great sense of humors and make the show very enjoyable to watch. Besides, its fun to see how stupid some of the costumes the contestants wear are. All in all, Let's Make a Deal is a classic game show well worth watching.
