Welcome to donduk. A refuge for those who enjoy Deal or No Deal, the hit Channel 4 gameshow hosted by Noel Edmonds. The award winning gameshow Deal or No Deal has become a big hit for Channel 4 and marks a sensational return to our screens of Noel Edmonds.

Deal or No Deal is enjoyed my millions of viewers daily, where the contestants battle with The Banker to try and win a jackpot of £250,000. Here at donduk you will find full daily reports of each show, as well Deal or No Deal news and specials. Deal or No Deal although initially appearing very simple in format of just opening a few boxes for the chance to win some big money prizes, actually has some potentially complex decisions to be made at points throughout the show, the contestants occasionally try complex or simple gameplay in an attempt to give them an edge in beating the Banker.

Now the party is over...

I wonder what its like to leave DOND? There you are show after show, riding the rollercoaster, getting to know each of your fellow contestants, saying goodbye to a different one at the end of each show, and then meeting a new one, until finally its your turn to play. Suddenly its all over, you have to leave. The cameras have gone, Noel is just an image on your TV screen, there are no more trips to hotels and restaurants; the storm has passed and normality has been restored.

I know Aaron reads this blog from time to time, so does Geordie, and I am pretty sure a few of the other contestants do too - why don't you write in and tell us what thats like?

Please.

Well, depending on when you play, you get to watch 0/1/2 more shows that day from a studio room - and then you go back to the hotel to celebrate / commiserate; all departing contestants give a brief speech as well.

I actually went back the next day to pick up my clothes (since I was driving this was much easier; those who came by public transport usually took their stuff back on the coach to the hotel) and the production crew generously let me (and tomorrow's contestant) watch Friday's show.

Then it was finally time to go; and yes, when I got home, it did feel a bit "empty" - it was difficult to talk to other people about the show on the same level that you had enjoyed with your fellow contestants.

To be honest though, it was the "dark week" off (between Nick & Bob's shows) that was hardest - the adrenaline was still pumping and I kept waking up early thinking about DoND!
