You might remember that the PCH Prize Patrol loves participating on game shows. Well… we’re at it again! All this week, Dave, Todd and I, were featured on Let’s Make A Deal for their special “Big Money Week”! Did YOU watch?
This was SO exciting for me because Let’s Make A Deal has always been a personal favorite game show of mine. When the original show debuted in 1963 – the legendary Monty Hall hosted. Do you remember that? Then, in 2009, a new version of the show aired – this time with the hilarious Wayne Brady as host. As a longtime fan of both Let’s Make A Deal AND Wayne Brady himself, I was THRILLED and couldn’t wait to go on the show.
For those of you who don’t know what Let’s Make A Deal is all about, allow me to explain! An episode features multiple deals between the host (Wayne!) and audience members, known as “traders.” Wayne presents a trader with a prize and the opportunity to take it or pick a mystery prize behind one of three curtains. And that’s where WE came in! All week, we were featured as one of the mystery prizes… and every day we awarded $20,000.00 cash!

I had so much fun filming these episodes of Let’s Make A Deal. Giving out big money is always a blast — and everyone who worked on the show was SO nice. When Todd, Dave, and I were standing behind the curtains during taping, we would watch the contestants from the monitor and try to play along with them! I don’t know if I would have made the right choices… sometimes I picked the ZONK prize, too! Good thing I wasn’t playing!
But probably the MOST exciting part about filming these episodes was that we got to meet Monty Hall – the original host of the show! How cool is that?
