Still the same game, but not the same without Monty
26 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've seen Monty in many interviews say that he'd love Let's Make a Deal to make a comeback... but with someone else hosting. Monty gave game show announcer Bob Hilton a shot at filling shoes that would be VERY hard to fill.

So LMAD made a comeback in 1990, still the same game. Three doors, contestants in crazy costumes, pricing games, trading games, and the big deal of the day. There was only one rather obvious drawback... Bob Hilton was NO Monty Hall.

When Monty was on, he was the ol' used car salesman that you weren't sure you could trust. Monty knew just how to tempt the contestant to go for what might be a better deal... or a useless zonk. Yet, he had enough charm to not totally embarrass a contestant for making the wrong choice. He always had that "I know what you're thinking" look on his face.

Bob Hilton pretty much just "went through the motions". He would be straight up and offer money for the box or the box for a curtain, or whatever, but beyond the trading games themselves, Bob left much to be desired.

Monty realized Bob just wasn't right for the show, and had no choice but to take the reins back. He did so very reluctantly. Monty said in a TV Guide interview that besides letting Bob go, the last thing he wanted to do was to take the job himself. On the show, Monty openly acknowledged that his return was a temporary measure, and a new host would be found, but the show was cancelled before he had the chance.

LMAD would not return for more than 10 years, this time under host Billy Bush. Not enough people were interested in this hourlong LMAD, which had cameo appearances with Monty, and it too was gone, after just 3 shows.
