Weekend Replay: Box 23 on “Deal or No Deal”

Earlier this week we discussed Deal or No Deal's newest feature, Box 23.  The Channel 4 game, hosted by Noel Edmunds, recently introduced a 23rd box which a player can buy at the end of the game with his or her winnings.  If they buy it, they stand a one-in-five chance of doubling their money.  However, they have the same odds to leave with nothing.  They are now putting £500,000 on the line.  Box 23 was introduced on Wednesday's episode.  If you missed it, check out the reveal and the first playing.  Would you have bought Box 23 in this situation?  Click here to watch Let us know what you think in the comments.

Best of 2013: We Remember What a Million Dollar Question Looks Like Thumbnail

Best of 2013: We Remember What a Million Dollar Question Looks Like

Our relationship with Who Wants to be a Millionaire here is interesting.  I love the show, I love Meredith Vieira and think Cedric the Entertainer is doing fine, and I love the current format now in its fourth season.  However, it's generous to say we were becoming restless waiting for someone to win the million, let alone reach the question.  It's more accurate to say we were pulling our hair out screaming nearly every year and losing the will to care each new season.  We've been over ten years since a winner.  We haven't even seen an actual million dollar question on the daytime version since 2007.  Finally, 2013 was the year this streak was broken and it was done spectacularly.  Click here to watch the big moments and let us know what you think.

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 don't need to understand Dutch to feel the emotional pain you're about to go through. Click here to watch and let us know what you think of this version of the show.

Video: Painful Overbid on “Price is Right” Showcase

Yesterday's episode of The Price is Right generated an interesting ending.  Contestant Mitchell won his way on stage at the last possible moment and played Ten Chances for a new car.  Unfortunately he couldn't get through the game and ended up with a portable heater and a camera.  He made it to the Showcase which consisted of a Sony Xperia phone with one year service, a trip to Key Largo, and a Chevy Spark.  Mitchell settled on a bid of $23,320.  You wouldn't believe how close he got. Click here to take a look at the shocking results.

Cassidy Schlitz Wins $100,000 on “The Price is Right”; Second Highest Daytime Winner

This week's Big Money Week on The Price is Right kicked off just about as large as possible.  Contestant Cassidy Schlitz was lucky enough to make it on stage to play the pricing game Half Off, the day's "Big Money" game, for $100,000.  Its usual prize is $10,000.  Sixteen boxes are presented to Cassidy.  One has $100,000 and the rest have nothing.  She must select the correct box to win.  Cassidy was lucky enough to correctly identify the price of three prizes and narrow her odds from 1/16 to 1/2 (each correct prize guess removes half of the boxes).  Left with boxes 5 and 14, Cassidy chose 5, opened the lid, and saw $100,000 in cash sitting inside.  Click here to learn more and see the big win.

Video: You May Really Want to Watch “Millionaire” Next Week

The new season of Who Wants to be a Millionaire has been going on for a bit and it's been a pretty smooth transition over to Cedric the Entertainer as host.  He's got the first-week jitters as anyone does, but let's wait to see how the episodes he tapes a few weeks down the line go.  The reception has been positive, though, so that's encouraging.  However, people don't watch for a host.  They watch for big money moments.  They watch so people can get to Round 2 and play for $100,000; $250,000; $500,000; or maybe see the infamous $1,000,000 question.  Millionaire is teasing a moment that will be going on this week.  You may really want to watch.  No spoilers until inside the story, so watch at your own risk.

The Awkward Express on “Wheel of Fortune.” Thumbnail

The Awkward Express on “Wheel of Fortune.”

Last night's episode of Wheel of Fortune provided us with two interesting moments. First, we see contestant Paul land on the Million Dollar Wedge and calling a correct letter in the puzzle. To claim it for the remainder of the game, he must solve the puzzle. From there, it left our heads scratching with an unusual puzzle solve and an awkward three second moment of silence. Later in the game, we finally see the Express wedge being played out. We like the changes the show has made over these years, and the new Express element is welcomed. Jackpot had a good run, but it was time for something new. Click here to watch the video.

Kam Perez Wins “Whodunnit?” and $250,000; Cris Crotz Revealed as The Killer

If you didn't get to see last night's Whodunnit? season finale on ABC, you missed what will go down as one of the best episodes of a reality game ever produced.  First, congratulations are in store.  Congratulations to Kam Perez who beat the competition and took home the $250,000.  Kam solved the finale's puzzles before the other innocent competitor, Lindsey Anderson, and left Rue Manor with a quarter of a million dollars.  The Killer was revealed to be beauty queen Cris Crotz.  She left subtle hints throughout the series which were revealed at the end, buts hats off to her.  I didn't think it was her.  I still thought it was Lindsey Anderson who, unfortunately met her demise at the last minute by solving the puzzle last.  Click here to watch the big reveal, read a recap, and read our thoughts on this amazing game show.
