Scoop: Coming Up on the 10th Anniversary Season Premiere of LET'S MAKE A DEAL on CBS - Monday, September 17, 2018
The 10th anniversary season of CBS Daytime Emmy Award-winning game show LET'S MAKE A DEAL kicks off Monday, Sept. 17 (check local listings) on the CBS Television Network with a jam-packed week of big surprises. LET'S MAKE A DEAL is hosted by Daytime Emmy Award-winning game show host Wayne Brady.
LET'S MAKE A DEAL returns with fan-favorite "Zonk Redemption" which gets super-sized from one episode to a week-long event as a thank you to the series' devoted audience. The exciting week of episodes offers formerly "zonked" traders from the show's past nine seasons the opportunity to redeem themselves. Each of these former contestants will be in the audience for the entire week and have the chance to leave a big winner or get zonked yet again. The excitement is multiplied by the possibility of uncovering one of Wayne's coveted "golden tickets," which gives unsuspecting contestants throughout the week a shot at ultimate redemption and guarantees $100,000 to one lucky winner - the single largest dollar amount given away in the history of the series!
On Monday, Sept. 17, Wayne will give away the first golden ticket, and model Tiffany introduces her new baby, Carter, to her LET'S MAKE A DEAL family. On Tuesday, Wayne officiates a surprise wedding for an engaged couple in the audience. Then, on Wednesday, Emmy Award-winning television personality RuPaul drops by to assist Wayne in making a deal. On Thursday, Wayne invites a contestant to play this season's new game, Decade of Deals, showcasing memorable photos from the past nine seasons. The week builds to an exciting conclusion on Friday when the newest Zonk mascot, "Zonkaroo," hatches and the $100,000 winner is revealed!
