Monty Hall OC, OM, born Monte Halparin, (August 25, 1921 - September 30, 2017) was a Canadian-American game show host and actor, most famous for his work on Let's Make a Deal, and the Monty Hall Problem it inspired.

Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, he graduated from the University of Manitoba and started his career at a local radio station, after he married Marilyn Plottel in 1947, with who he would spend the rest of his life married. In 1955, he moved to America, and after a stint as the host of Video Village and Video Village Junior, he co-created and hosted Let’s Make A Deal, starting in 1963. He remained a staunch supporter of the series and its revival in 2009 until his death. He also developed and occasionally hosted other game shows under the Stefan Hatos-Monty Hall Studios banner.

Throughout his life, he would receive a plethora of achievements and awards, including a star on both the American and Canadian Walks of Fame, induction into the Orders of Canada and Manitoba, and the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2013 Daytime Emmy Awards.
