Random chance to win...I'll gladly take a 1 in 12 or whatever shot of winning a million instead of watching my money freaking slip away as I attempt to convince everyone to give me the money. Since there's a huge risk of losing money, I have no clue why others don't feel the same way.


Different show, I believe. That one didn't look appealing at all to me.

Yeha, you're right. I forget the name of the other show. It wasn't that appealing to me, either.

Now I remember what Deal or No Deal is. It's the one with the cases. A good old lottery...what a gerat idea for a show, lol.

I can easily say that I have never felt dumber in my life after watching Deal or No Deal. It's mindless, stupid, requires no talent or skill and provides somewhere between little and no entertainment. Now, I must be retarded or something because this show is huge. Everyone's watching, everyone loves it; why? Because it's on TV? I mean, Millionaire was annoying, but I enjoyed it because it required some kind of contestant skill. This is absolutely mindless. Maybe that's the appeal though, I don't know. Most people suck at trivia anyway; why bother learning? Why bother being smart to win money? We can just pick suitcases! It's so cliche too, with the drawn out suspense, the ridiculously long commercial breaks and the hot chicks with numbered suitcases. "Yes, hot girls!" I can't find those anywhere else... :-t
