  • First and last time I watched this show.

    I finally watched Deal or No Deal for the first time, and the last time. I have heard friends and co-workers talk about this show for a year and decided I better check it out. I expected to see the contestants challenged with some "Millionaire" type questions but instead found out this game took about as much brain power as the "Find the word" games that an 8 year old could handle with ease. I thought the contestant made a good decision to take the $99,000 and run. Howie Mandel looks a little creepy with the bald head, but he is a likable guy. The models were for the most part pretty hot. The funniest part of the show was the bad acting by the models as they peeked in the case, and then overreacted with a sad look. Not great, not terrible, just your average show that somehow stays on the air, while brilliant shows like Arrested Development get canned.moreless
  • Double or nothing...

    Huge Grease fan Kathy Beck has seen the movie like 300 times and fantasized being Sandy while growing up. The Banker responded by giving her a bank offer of a vat of grease (worth $300). She turns it down. With eight cases left, Kathy had the 750K case in play. She takes the $99K deal with five cases left even though the 750K case remained. Had she continued, Kathy could have won $401K three cases later. Her case had $10 in it. At the end of the show, Kathy was given a chance to double her winnings. She declined the offer, although she did open the giant case with DOUBLE in it anyway.moreless
