Storyline

The United States' version of "Deal or No Deal" was based on the Netherlands game show that had premiered in 2002. The main objective of the game was identical: Select a case containing a mystery cash amount, then - after being asked to narrow the field of cases by a certain number at various intervals - decide whether to take a cash buyout offered by an unseen "banker" ("Deal") or reject the offer and continue eliminating cases ("No Deal"), knowing he/she could win the grand prize of $1 million ... or far less. Each new game begins with 26 cases, each randomly distributed and held by a sexy model. The contestant chooses one case, which is placed at his/her contestant's podium. The cash amount inside could be as little as 1 cent ($.01) or as much as $1 million. The player then is asked to eliminate six of the remaining cases, calling out the corresponding numbers one at a time. After each number is called, that case is opened, revealing one of the 26 cash prizes; that prize is then ... Written by Brian Rathjen <briguy_52732@yahoo.com>

$0.49 text message? No Deal!
1 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just as an FYI, the $10,000 text message contest they advertise just before each commercial break costs each sucker (er … home contestant) $0.49. This means NBC pays for the prize after only 20,408 entries, which I'm sure they get within the first couple seconds. Hmm...maybe they should have fewer commercials since they are making so much money off the home contestants! Just a thought.

Anywho, I feel the show was OK, but the numerous commercial breaks and the dumb calls to the mysterious banker made it unwatchable. To be fair, I liked the shows premise and enjoyed watching the contestants' reactions.
