FREE - Let's Make A Deal! (Live Show)

FREE to be part of a live audience of LET'S MAKE A DEAL!

We will attend a live taping of Let's Make A Deal. Audience members are eligible to win prizes. You must dress up in a costume in order to attend.

You are guaranteed to win the item listed below at this show.

- A gift certificate worth in value $25 to $50 from (only if we have a group of 10+ attendees.)

More details to follow.

UPDATE 5: We will meet at 10 a.m. at the studio to attend the morning taping. We will also attend the afternoon taping. Each attendee may receive $100 gift certificate for attending both taping if we have at least 10 attendees. More details will follow here.

UPDATE 4: How to get selected to win!

On 06/15/13, I went on the afternoon taping of this show and learned a few things. The most important selection criterion appeared to be contestant's high energy level. Costume is not so important. (I sat next to a guy who dressed up as an ordinary nerd--like when I was in high school--and he was selected in the morning taping. He sat for our afternoon taping but wasn't going to be selected again.)

While we were queuing to enter the studio, a couple of staff members came out to interview each person in the queue. The questions were, "how old are you?", "what do you do for a living?", "are you excited?", "who did you come with?", "why should Wayne Brady select you?" and "please tell us something interesting (different) about you."

Best answers appeared to have one commonality: energy. There was a gal in a bumble bee outfit in front of me who exuded bubbly high energy. She constantly cheered, screamed and gave coherent answers. Her answers were not necessarily interesting but she was the 1st contestant selected. There was a man who sat inside the studio in front of me who got up and danced at every break. He was selected as 2nd or 3rd contestant.

Announcer even said to the audience all contestants have been pre-selected through interview process. To those whom they pre-selected, they continue to observe them throughout the taping to make sure they maintained high energy and are good candidates to be called up.

2nd most important criterion appeared to be the delivery of your responses. They don't want anyone to stutter or freak out when that person is in front of the camera. So they look for strong and natural delivery of your responses. Wit is a plus but not a requirement.

One gal had lots of energy and her response to why she should be selected was that she needs a car that can run over 55 mph as her current car couldn't. It was funny but she was not selected. I think it may be because the show is not a charity show but a fun show. They don't want people to say they need the money to survive or pay medical bills of an ill family member. Basically no sobbing stories.

People with cute outfits got called. But many people had on cute outfits. (There were 2 people in queue who did not wear a costume and I didn't see them again.) Just don't wear anything with any logo or copyrighted material. I had on 2 tattooed arm sleeves with "Dodgers" and "Angels" on them. I ditched my group and sat in the front 1st row. However they noticed my sleeves showed "Dodgers" and "Angels" and asked me to remove them. I thought my tattoos were a plus so I agreed to turn the sleeves so the words won't show. However when I raised my arms they showed. About 10 minutes later they asked me to sit in the very back row. They said every seat is a good seat but they chose more contestants from the middle front rows.

One contestant won a car, others vacations, cash and such. Another contestant could have won a car if she chose curtain #1 instead of #3. She was not offered an opportunity to switch curtains like Monty Hall used to do in the old days.

So there's a good chance you can win something if you practice your responses to the above questions and can summon your highest energy for 4-5 hours.  

UPDATE 3: Dress Code

DRESS CODE AND COSTUME INFORMATION: We encourage all potential contestants to dress in costume. Costumes should be fun, creative, and neat. The more original and creative the costume, the better chance you'll have of catching Wayne's attention and maybe winning some cash or prizes! It's your chance to show off your costume ideas on television. We love seeing everyone's unique ideas.

Please do not wear costumes with recognizable cartoon, television, movie, or other copyrighted characters, or include any items that have designer names, corporate or sports team names or logos, copyrighted images, celebrity names or images (living or deceased), cartoon character images. If you do wear such clothing, and are selected to be a contestant, you may be required to remove it, turn it inside out, or put on additional clothing to cover it.

UPDATE 2: This event date is soon approaching and each attendee is required to wear a costume. By 06/15/13, please indicate the costume you (and your guest) will wear to the show on the below message board. If you cannot indicate your costume by this date, I must move you to the waitlist. Thanks.

UPDATE 1: Each of us have to dress up in a costume in order to be part of the studio audience. If any person is not in a costume, there's good chance that person will be turned away and may not sit through the taping. So please think of a costume to wear. If you cannot wear a costume, please de-rsvp.

The taping of Price Is Right (July 3rd) does not require a costume so you may want to attend that show and potentially win lots of prizes. May be... A NEW CAR!


You can bring your friends but you must rsvp everyone here in order to reserve a ticket for each person. Each person must be 18+ years old and NOT be a person who potentially can cause any harm to anyone.

Arrive at Sunset Bronson Studios by 12-noon. Live taping is from 12:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. More details to follow.

      You're very welcome!

    TO ALL ATTENDEES: Please do not discuss any outcome of this show until after November 4th when it will air on TV.

    June 28, 2013

  • Mark L.

    Please check in with me to let me know you or how many people in your group will make it by 10 a.m. this morning.

    Park on the street but observe all parking signs. Or park in a lot somewhere. There is no studio parking lot.

    We may get 1 hour lunch break around noon. We will be on our own to eat near the studio and get back in time. Make sure to use the restroom prior to getting to the studio as they only have portable restrooms.

    June 28, 2013

    • Mark L.

      You can bring your phone and a small bag but don't bring a camera or anything metal.

    Hi, Wila and MaryAnn. I spoke with the producer and he asked me if we can attend the morning taping as well. We would have to arrive by 10 a.m. at the studio. We can also stay for the afternoon taping.

    If we all can attend both taping, we may have twice the chance of getting selected and also receive twice the incentive. We don't have to bother with driving there again on another day. I hope one of us will get selected this way and win something. I probably won't attend another Let's Make A Deal for a while.

    June 24, 2013

    • Mark L.

      Okay, I think we are set and in the money. Last time we were there, we all parked on the streets next to and nearby the studio. There isn't a studio parking lot. They only have portable restrooms so I highly recommend using the restroom prior to arriving. They have food and beverage for sale. I think we can take our water bottles in. We had to check in our cell phones but I recommend carrying it until it must be checked in. I will confirm these details again tomorrow.

      June 26, 2013

    • Mark L.

      The key to being selected as a contestant is showing lots of energy at all times.

      Hi, Genevieve. Please fully read the event description. Do you and your friends have a costume to wear? (It can be a simple costume.) Can you and your friends also attend the morning taping? For the morning taping, we have to arrive by 10 a.m.

    Sorry, got called to work on Friday! Boooooooooo! Next time

  • budi

    Yes i confirmed that this show was incredibly fun. and Mark is totally correct about the "energy". one girl who sit next to me was picked because she was dancing in every commercial break and I was looking at the selector and they keep looking and pointing at her. Turn out its also her birthday and she got +/- $2800... nice gift for birthday right?

    June 19, 2013

  • Mark L.

    Please update your rsvp and indicate your costume by noon Friday 06/21/13.

    Costume does not have to be fancy. You can wear a cat headwear (not Hello Kitty or other copyrighted items), swimwear with snorkel, inner tube and noodle, etc. Remember, high level of energy is the most important selection criterion.

    Also, if we have at least 10 people attend the event then there will be some incentive for every attendee as described above. Thanks
