*** They brought her ([[TheBusCameBack along with Monty]]) back in 2003 and played the same deal again, except this time she finally chose the third curtain, [[CruelTwistEnding which turned out to be a Zonkmobile]]. (For her good sportsmanship, she got to keep the $2,000 she traded away.)

The show originally ran on Creator/{{NBC}} daytime and primetime from 1963-68 before {{Channel Hop}}ping to Creator/{{ABC}}, where it lasted until 1976. UsefulNotes/{{Syndicat|ion}}ed runs aired from 1971-77, 1980-81 (taped in Canada), and 1984-86 (as ''The All-New Let's Make A Deal''). The show went back to NBC from 1990-91 with Bob Hilton hosting, but after miserable ratings, Hall unsuccessfully came back. The show was revived briefly in 1996 on Creator/{{Fox}} as ''Big Deal'' with Mark [=DeCarlo=] hosting. Another revival in 2003, '''again''' on NBC with Billy Bush at the helm, lasted three episodes; this version is deprecated by most of the fandom. The current incarnation, begun in late 2009, replaced ''Series/GuidingLight'' on Creator/{{CBS}}. This version is an hour long and hosted by Wayne Brady; while nobody can take the place of TV's Big Dealer, the Brady version has been pretty well-received. Hall even returned as a guest for a week and gave his blessing.

** But even then, a contestant winning a zonk doesn't mean they have necessarily lost. Other times, what appears to be a Zonk is actually a prize worth several thousand dollars, such as a half-scale antique pie wagon that was worth $3,300, said prize's value revealed only after the contestant was approached to go for the Big Deal and agreed. In some cases, a Zonk may conceal a legitimate prize, such as the time "garbage cans for every day of the week" had one of them containing a fur coat worth $5,000, or a junked washer and dryer, with dirty, holey blue jeans seeing the model rummage through the pockets to see if her "little boy" (usually the announcer) left something inside and he always did, often thousands of dollars in cash (or a check for said amount), tickets for a trip or the keys to a new car! Similarly, one Brady-era Zonk (a "Teeny Weeny Bedroom") had a $500 consolation attached to it via a piggy bank on the nightstand.

* KitchenSinkIncluded: Occasionally, the Big Deal may be the prize behind the door that was opened, ''plus'' everything else on stage (denoted on the Wayne Brady version by an "Everything In The Big Deal" sign.

The last contestant also passed, and ended up winning [[{{Zonk}} Laundered Money]]. The jar was revealed to have been worth around $900, but then Jonathan dug around and found an "Everything in The Deal" card!
