My wife is mad about this show.

I don't get it.

There are no trivia questions to answer.

You don't have to collect flags on scaffolding that is suspended by a helicopter over water.

You don't have to perform any demeaning tasks like eating bugs or dating Charlie O'Connell.

You don't have to spend three minutes making audiences squirm with discomfort as you regale Alexi Trebec with a sh!tty anecdote.

There is no wheel to spin or prices to guess.

You just have to show up, be annoying, and either accept or not accept an offer while watching Howie Mandell make up names for gorgeous women. (Like her remembers them all. Give me a break.
)

So I say no deal.

Cheers!

TJ

I don't understand why people with a firm grasp of statistics don't just go on this show to abuse the system. I suppose they wouldn't pick someone who they thought had any potential.

I am not sure how a firm graps of statistics would help. If you can define your utility curve you would need much less than a firm grasp of statistics to maximize it.

No deal.

I've never seen Deal or No Deal, but I'm assuming it's quite similar to Trato Hecho, another show I despise (along with most everything on Univision, but don't tell anyone, k?)

Wait, I don't like TV much to begin with.

Yar, well those contestants do look ta be thinkin' e'er so hard about what numbers ta pick, and some even turnin' around to ask the audience fer help, as if the landlubbin' bilge rats might know somethin'. It be as interestin' as any spinnin' wheel, now, arr.
