Deal or No Deal (Australia)

Show Summary

Deal or No Deal originally started off as a one hour series on a Sunday night at 7.30pm, but this year was changed to make it simpler and converted to a half hour series. Has done well at 5.30pm. Knocked rival show Price is Right back to 5.00pm and gotten rid of new half hour Millionaire as well (completely changed Channel Nine's afternoon game show times). Deal or No Deal is a game of luck and is hard to follow, try and see if you will understand it by the following instructions: There are 6 Blocks of Areas for Audience/Contestants to be seated in and at random, a singular block of audience/contestants are able to win up to $200,000. Once a block of 25 people are chosen, again at random, another person from the other 5 Blocks is chosen at random to join the other 25 contestants at winning the money. Now, there are 26 people, and they are asked 3 questions by Host Andrew O'Keefe. The person who answered them all correctly and in the fastest time, gets the chance to win the $200,000. This lucky contestant has to chose which briefcase (either number 1-26) they would like to play with. The remaining 25 briefcases are distributed to the remaining 25 unlucky contestants to hold. Host Andrew O'Keefe gives to contestant amounts of money ranging from $0.50 - $200,000 on the board. They must chose which briefcases have not got the $200,000, (as said above, hoping the cases they have chosen to hold on to is the $200,000)eliminating the smaller amounts. First, the contestant has 6 goes at eliminating amounts off the board and once finished, gets offered an amount of money from the bank. Then question is asked: Deal or No Deal. They may chose to play on and second have to eliminate 5 off the board, the question is asked after the contestant is offered an amount of money from the bank. If declined and play, they must eliminate 4 amounts off the board, still hoping not to get rid of large amounts. The 3 amounts must be taken off the board, then 2, then finally one at a time. Whatever the contestant is left with at the end of the game (even if the $200,000 did go off) then they are left with the amount in their briefcase or deal from the bank.

  • It's a good show, but i think it's had it's time.

    7.5
    I really do like Deal or No Deal, i think it has a good format, but i'm starting to think after 10 years being on the air it needs to be cancelled. I think it's had it's time and another new,fresh show can take it's place.
  • Deal or No Deal? You Decide! Make The Bank Pay!

    10
    Deal or No Deal is hosted by Australia's own Andrew O'Keeffe. The show runs on a probability that a contestant chosen to play the Deal's chosen briefcase contains $200,000. The contestant may not have $200K in their briefcase but as the contestant choses briefcase from the remaining briefcases on the podium, the possibility that he or she does narrows. The odds grow in favour of the contestant's chosen case. The closer a contestant gets to the high amounts, the higher the bank will bid for the contestant's briefcase. The more higher amount briefcases the contestant knocks out, the bank offer will fall. The contestant must choose to DEAL before the bank offer drops too low.moreless
  • It's an interesting show that I would watch from time to time

    7.8
    I’ve watched this show for quite a while now, and I’ll watch It from time to time.



    Overall It is quite interesting and addictive, but when I first saw it about two years ago, I just didn’t understand the rules so It made me quite frustrated for a time, But it is a good show and now that I get how the game is played I can enjoy it. It is like any other quiz show; good some nights and maybe not as much interesting on the other nights. On the really good episodes, you’ll be put in huge suspense while watching the contestant trying to pick the right briefcases to win the big money. It is a really interesting show that I’ll watch then again.

    Another awesome quiz show that I really enjoyed was “Who wants to be a millionaire” (normal version), that show is the best In my opinion but “Deal or no deal” (AUS) is a good show all around that is well worth watching!moreless
  • Why would anyone watch this piece of garbage.

    1.0
    I have watched this show about 10 times just to try to get into it but because of its rubbish host and even lamer contestants I now watch the fantastic Bert's Family Feud. The whole contestant picking format is stupid because it has nothing to do with the game at all. The briefcase part is even worse as you go through every single boring case to see what is inside of it and with Andrew O'Keefe's constant commentary of the show is frustrating. The best part about this absolutely appalling show is the decision between $200,000 and $10,000; they go for it and get the $10,000. This the part which gave its score of 1. This show is a load of rubbish.moreless
  • This show is basically about picking one case out of the twenty cases and only one case has one million dollars and picking out the lowest prices will raise your bargain price from the dealer who wants to buy the suitcase from you.moreless

    9.0
    I love this show. It\\\'s interesting and it really has an aspect of if people are greedy or not. It\\\'s really intense when the dealer gets you a good price and you wondering if you should deal or not because you want to get the million dollars. Then you have your family and friends and the audience trying to persuade you to deal or not. It\\\'s a really good show. It\\\'s better than Who wants to be a millionaire and all those other game shows where you win money. This show will definitely be everybody\\\'s favorite.moreless

    Aussie TV we want on DVD

    What better than some home-grown TV shows on DVD to take you back to the days of after-school slurpees, Saturday mornings in your jammies, or when your favourite stars were fresh-faced newbies? These series haven't been given the chance to fit the bill yet.
