On Wednesday (Dec. 24), kids are taking over the “Let’s Make a Deal” stage for a special family episode. Children ages 8-17 will get to make crazy, one-of-a-kind deals on everything from new cars to family trips to Hawaii and Alaska. Plus, host Wayne brady and the cast will sing Christmas carol mash-ups in the popular Juke Box Game. Watch a sneak peek above, available exclusively at Zap2it.
“Letting kids take over ‘Let’s Make a Deal’ is always funny,” says executive producer Mike Richards. “Wayne is a big kid himself, so when he and the kids see a video game system they don’t want to give it up for anything … even though the parents might want to give it up to go for a car.”
Model Tiffany Coyne adds, “I loved having all the kids in the audience for the Christmas Show! They are so excited and bring such a fun energy. A lot of the time the kids are more cautious than their parents when making a deal with Wayne. Wanting to take the sure thing, like cash, over the unknown.”
“Kids are so resilient,” says announcer Jonathan Mangum. “They can handle getting zonked without collapsing into a puddle of tears like many adults I’ve seen.”
