Some meat and potatoes here...tomorrow's episode features "legacy contestants" who appeared on past versions, as well as bloopers and classic clips. Apparently June 1 is now "National Let's Make a Deal Day".
"Eleanor Roosevelt? She's on Card Sharks, isn't she?"

Now celebrating his 20th season on GSF!

And it's been asked who could take one of those 90-day cruises offered on Treasure Hunt in the 70s...  111 days.  Wow.

I played it back to see if any of that $76,006 price tag included some tax relief or some supplemental income for the four months of work she's gonna have to miss. Didn't sound like it. Talk about a white elephant.

She mentioned her parents. Maybe they're retired and she can give them the gift of a lifetime.

The most recent airing proves that they still either aren't getting the beats or do not understand the thrust of the show.  The safe cracker game was cutely evocative of Dream House, but offering $1,000 or 15 more seconds to win a ski boat? Who wouldn't take the extra time.

The very first deal with four keys and three boxes was spoiled quite a lot when the last contestant was given the chance to trade her key for a small box that contained the very car that was in one of the lockboxes. The Price is Right may suffer from uneven hosting but fun games and a joyous atmosphere covers lots of that, but when the either-or choices have no bite it's hard to stay invested.

I donít watch the show very often but the last time I did, I noticed Wayne offered maybe $1,500 at most to walk. Nothing to sneeze at, but Monty was offering close to $1,000 nearly 40-50 years ago, back when that was big money. Even the Canadian version offered solid buyouts.

(J. Walter Weatherman:) And that's why you don't give up a car for a chance at the Big Deal.

She mentioned her parents. Maybe they're retired and she can give them the gift of a lifetime.

Trips aren't transferable. The best she could do is let one parent "accompany" her, then just not show up for her ticket (though she'd still be on the hook for the tax liability).

The safe cracker game was cutely evocative of Dream House, but offering $1,000 or 15 more seconds to win a ski boat? Who wouldn't take the extra time.

That seems like it's going to be a game that never hits the desired risk/reward balance. The only other time I saw that game played (on a daytime episode), the contestant didn't understand what was going on, got only one guess in on their first turn, and immediately bailed out. The contestant on tonight's episode quickly set himself up so that bailing out was never a reasonable option.


My biggest surprise from last night's episode? When Wayne offered to let the contestant exchange keys in the first deal, they were actually playing a variant of the Monty Hall Problem on Let's Make a Deal!
