Want to Be a Contestant on Deal or No Deal?

By February 13, 2008

Follow me on:

There's no denying the popularity of Deal or No Deal. The show continues to draw a wide audience, even when up against the powerhouse that is American Idol. A show this popular also draws thousands of applicants who want a shot at playing the game, meeting Howie Mandel, and potentially winning a lot of money from the Banker.

If you're interested in being on Deal or No Deal, my interview with Neal Konstantini is a must-read. His name might not ring a bell, but he's the Casting Producer for Deal or No Deal, and the man you want to make a good impression on if you want to be on the show! Neal was completely frank about what he looks for in a potential contestant, the biggest mistake people can make on their audition tapes, and more. You'll definitely want to check this one out!

I love this game show. When I watch the show and the cases I choose, makes me a winner from home. I would actually like to test my luck on the actual show.

I am blessed to have the three kids that I have. It hurts that I am financially strapped and can’t provide for them how I would like to. I feel we are going through the struggle together because they always tell me that everything is going to be alright mom.

I would also like to help my church (Victory Chapel) build the school for our children.

Howie, I hope to be invited on your show and beat the banker.

hi i would like to be a contestant on your show. I just recently had a baby and she is 4 weeks old. The entire hospital bill is in our hands because insurance decided not to pay for it. We need new windows for our house because the super cold weather is killing us this year. We have other bills also but I am not going to complain too much because we have our health and great kids (2). I would just love to be a contestant because to walk out of there with even 1 or 2 thousand dollars would make me the happiest woman alive. you know 1 to 2 thousand would help pay a few bills so I wouldn’t complain about that a bit. Thankyou and God Speed!!

My name is Dottie Wendler, and I am a 25 year old wife and mother of two beatiful baby girls. My family loves Deal or No Deal, and noboy more than me. I am a southern belle from a little town in Mississippi. I would love to just be able to come out for the show and meet everyone involved. But when it gets right down to it; I just want to prove I can beat that sly banker out of his million dollars. I want to buy a place of my own, and could use the money to go towards finding a place to call HOME. Help me Howie! Help me get a place of my own! And let me show that banker what a ‘lil ole’ mississippi girl can do. I will be looking to here from you soon! Thanks!

Hey there Mr. Howie! My name is Jay Hersey. I have watched your show since the first day that it came out, and i have to say it is amazing!! I would love to be on your show but i have no idea how to sign up. My story I…My wife father has Bladder Cancer and he will be starting to travel from Alma Ga to Jacksonville Florida once a week. Do you know how much gas that takes? On top of that his meds cost so much untill he cant afford it. There is a great chance he may not live. He is a holiness preacher and he has a family that would do anything for him. If i could be on your show i would pay as many bills with what i win off. Send him to the best doctors and pray to god he works in a misterious way. Thanks a lot Howie and i hope to hear from you. Email is jay_hersey@yahoo.com Ill be waiting:)

(14) Mark Schulz says:

Dear Hawee,
My name is Mark Schulz, I am 21 yrs. As for the response I will be straight forward, I wish to make my own start in life. I live with my father who is 57 and is having health issues though he is still very strong. I wish to help him out but as well as get going on my own. If chosen I would give about 1/3 to him for his finacal problems and the other would go for me going to college and making my own life. As it seems he is in a way reluctant to see me go( always is with parents right? ) I live in his place which is 15mile from any town, refuses to let me get my own car and drive (says i would crash and get hurt or die.) as with so many other excuses he has.
I love my father but I feel so trapped here. I want to get out on my own but as I have no finacal to get started I can’t go any where. As with this economy there are no jobs who will hire either ( as I have looked time and time again) So I ask of you, just give me one chance or at least consider it.

You ignorant savages,

Do you realize you’re posting “Comments” on an About.com article? It amuses me that most of you think you are talking to Howie himself.

Helpful Hint: Howie doesn’t read this nor do any NBC Staff members.

Helpful Hint 2: Try to focus and re-read the entire paragraph the author posted. If you don’t understand after reading it, have someone else read it and have them explain it to you.

Your close personal friend and helper,
Lord Netster
