Weekend Replay: Big Money on Dutch “Deal or No Deal”
We haven’t taken a look at a show abroad in a while. Let’s visit the Netherlands and their version, the original version, of Deal or No Deal. It’s been on the air since 2000 and it’s still going strong. They found the formula to make it work: make it a big event show, make the money huge (but still never give away anything out of the ordinary), and air it only a few times a year to make people watch. It’s why, even though I can barely understand what they are saying, it’s hard to not get wrapped up in the fun and drama.
This clip is from last weekend’s episode. You’ve never seen anything like this in the format before. The top prize of five million euro is still there along with one and two million. He’s only been through two rounds and eleven cases removed. What will he do with a 125,000 offer? You don’t need to understand Dutch to feel the emotional pain you’re about to go through.
