“Deal or No Deal” Goes to Space for Banker’s Birthday Week
If you watched Channel 4′s Deal or No Deal today like I did, you saw another one of the show’s great themed weeks. As always, the Noel Edmonds-hosted game celebrates The Banker’s birthday (@officialbanker) in a spectacular way. They went, possibly, beyond anything they’ve done before this week with “Deal in Space.” The set has been dressed up to represent a space ship (U.S.S. Enter-to-win-a-prize), and the contestants are decked out in space gear. The boxes even got a touchup. One thing remains though: contestants battle the Banker to win £250,000.
As with all themed weeks there’s a special skill game. Contestants get the chance to fly a small remote-controlled ship from one platform to another. Doing it in a minute awards the contestant a holiday. However, do it in under 90 seconds and the contestant can also go one box at a time. Be careful, though. If you don’t make it, the Banker gets to look into your box. Will anyone beat the Banker and take home a quarter of a million pounds?
Here’s a trailer for the show. They did a phenomenal job this week.
