For some crazy reason, I get an African chanel on my cable TV.

I have seen the promos for this game show and they say it's the number one game show in Nigeria. It's called "DEAL/NO DEAL"

It involves 27 beautiful models that come out with 27 cases (trunk boxes) with anywhere from 0 to over US$100,000 in them. Not actual cash, just a sign that sez the value on it.

I have yet to see a whole show because the time zone is messed up (Central African Time) but the gist of the thing is the players get a case and they don't know what's in it. The host of the show offers to trade them for other cases. Hilarity ensues. (NOT) At some point, the trunk boxes are opened by the beautiful models and money is won.

Anybody ever heard of or seen this game? As far as I can tell, there is no skill or knowledge involved, just dumb luck and superstition about the numbers on the cases.

I will try and stay up real late sometime and catch a whole show.

Yes, we've had that show in the UK for over a year now: http://www.channel4.com/money/ontv/deal_or_no_deal/

I *think* it originated in France.

EDIT: Damn! RL beat me to the punch Smile

It's on in Germany too.

Bad time slot, bad host. I haven't watched it, so I'm not informed about the quality of the models.

We have it in the US..... Mrs. The Man (or would that be The Woman?) calls it real or not real. When you pick a number of case for them to open the camera focuses in on the case and the model holding it. You then have to guess if her cleavage is real or not real. Really the only reason to watch the show.

Not sure where it started, but here is the wiki link FWIIW.

Now this parody looks much more fun and from the top left I'd say it was sponsored by wayne.

Yes - Picking random numbers for 45 minutes, thrilling. I get quite into it though...

There is absolutely no skill involved in it whatsoever. In the UK it is presented by a bearded dwarf with an oversized head to match his oversized ego and salary.

The contestants inane enthusiasm is inversely proportional to their IQs.

Bugger! I wish I'd thought of it, I would be a millionaire by now. Now there's an idea...

So a gameshow in which there are boxes of money (symbolic or otherwise) and someone offering money for said boxes via electronic communication is the number one show in Nigeria. There's a surprise. Laughing

I can't watch the Howie Mandel versions. It might be bearable if they didn't have a guest appearance from every person the person has ever met in their entire lives.

"This is an important decision to make, so before you do, here's Sylvia Browne to talk with your 3rd Grade teacher, Miss Simpson, who passed away 10 years ago!"

The Quebec version is bearable, if only for the fact that the models are from the province, and Quebec is home to the hottest women on the planet. Perhaps my inability to speak even a lick of French enhances the show.

Sorry Shiver... unless I'm mistaken the format comes from the Netherlands (probably from the same company that brought you Big Brother...)

^^^^Endemol. The same company whose latest wheeze is to create a reality show featuring a terminally ill woman who gets to vote on who is the most deserving recipient of her kidney when she pops her clogs. You couldn't make it up! Crying or Very sad

It has spread to the antipodes (the gameshow, that is) and picked up no intelligent format on the way..

I wonder if they'd trade our bearded dwarf Edmonds for a model, obviously it would be nice to have the whole panel being them, but ridding us of the dwarf and getting some cleavage must be worth a petition. Doesn't the prime minister have a e-petition thing going on? (Whoever our prime minister may be this week).

It's a very simple game mathematically. The sensible strategy is to keep playing right until the last box, as the banker's offer will always be less than the expectation value of your winnings. However, people with no grasp of probabilities will tend to bail out once it becomes unlikely that they'll win one of the big prizes.

Anyway, I wonder if you have to pay an advance fee to look in the box for the Nigerian version? Laughing

On the other hand, for most people, the utility of having one million dollars is less than double the utlity of having $500,000. So it might well make sense to sell the suitcase when there are 3 out there, including the one with a million, for less than $333,333. Tax issues may also come into play, since the tax on $1 million will be more than double the tax on $500,000.

I've watched this thing once. They had this guy who had saved somebody wh had fallen on the subway tracks in NYC by jumping on him and covering him up as the train came by. I had read about this guy before; I guess Donald Trump had already given him some money. Anyway, he turned down about $320,000 when their were 3 suitcases left. In my opinion he should have taken it - although if Trump had given him a whole lot of money, maybe it was a good gamble.

@SamV
I'd guess that once you're talking about life changing amounts of money, the nature of the game changes a bit. This would particularly be the case in the Netherlands version where there's potentially 5 million Euros up for grabs! However, for most people they'll still typically take a deal that's only 70% of what they can expect to win even when the prizes are comparatively modest. I guess it's partly that there's a big stigma attached to going on a game show and only coming home with a penny.

I personally can't stand the show. I used to have respect for Howie as a comedian until I saw him hosting that show. I've missed a few episodes of Heroes because it came on right before it and I had to be on another channel, if the tv was on at all, just to not endure that craptastic show.
