The initial prize given to the contestant might also be concealed, such as in a box, wallet or purse, or the player might be initially given a box or curtain. Technically, contestants were supposed to bring something to trade in, but this rule was seldom enforced.On several occasions, a contestant would actually be asked to trade in an item such as his or her shoes or purse, only to receive the item back at the end of the deal as a "prize".
Prizes generally were either a legitimate prize, cash, or a "zonk".One door hid the day's Big Deal, which was usually more than the top prize offered to that point.It often included the day's most expensive prize (a luxury or sports car, a trip, furniture/appliances, a fur, cash, or a combination of two or more of said items).Monty Hall (1963–1977, 1980–1981, 1984–1986, 1990–1991; 2010 & 2013, sub)Geoff Edwards (1985, sub)Dean Goss (1986, sub)Bob Hilton (1990)Gordon Elliott (1998)Billy Bush (2003)Ricki Lake (Gameshow Marathon, 2006)Wayne Brady (2009–Present) Carol Merrill (1963–1977; 2013, sub)Barbara Lyon (sub, 1960s–1970s)Maggie Brown & Juliet Hall (1980–1981)Karen La Pierre & Melanie Vincz (1984–1985)Diane & Elaine Klimaszewski & Georgia Satelle (1990–1991)Nicole Pulliam, Jayanna Wolfe, & Vanessa Minnillo (2003)Rusty Joyner & Brandi Sherwood (Gameshow Marathon, 2006)Alison Fiori (2009)Tiffany Coyne (2009–Present)Danielle Demski (2013, sub) Wendell Niles (1963–1964)Jay Stewart (1964–1977)Chuck Chandler (1980–1981)Brian Cummings (1984–1985 season)Dean Goss (1985–1986 season)Dean Miuccio (1990–1991)Elizabeth Oakes (2003)Rich Fields (Gameshow Marathon, 2006)Jonathan Mangum (2009–Present) Stefan Hatos-Monty Hall Produtions (1963–1986)Catalena Productions (1980–1981)Ron Greenberg Productions/Dick Clark Productions (1990–1991)Monty Hall Enterprises/Renegade 83 (2003)Fremantlemedia North America (2006, 2009–Present) Each episode of Let's Make a Deal (which was billed by Jay Stewart, who served as the show's announcer from 1964 until 1977, as "The Marketplace of America") consisted of several "deals" between the host and a member or members of the audience as contestants.Audience members were picked at the host's whim as the show went along, and couples were often selected to play as "one" contestant.A contestant who had previously been chosen for a deal earlier in the show had their number called on a few occasions.
This contestant was chosen to play a special deal, which had four incarnations: The current revival brought the wheel back under a new name, "Go For a Spin".(see above) Each show ends with the Big Deal of the Day.
Additionally, some deals took the form of games of chance, and others in the form of pricing games, similar to those used on The Price is Right: The following games were played for a grand prize, such as a car or trip, and almost always involved grocery items.
At certain stages of these games, Hall often offered a sure-thing deal (a prize or cash) to quit before the result was revealed.
However, after the taping of the show, any trader who had been zonked would be offered a consolation prize instead of having to take home the actual zonk.
This is partly because some of the zonks were intrinsically impossible to receive or deliver to the contestants.
Beginning with the day's biggest winner, and moving in order to the winner of the lowest prize value, the host would ask each contestant if they wanted to trade their winnings for a spot in the Big Deal (whose value was usually revealed at that point).
