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.

What happened to Jim?

Jim had a nightmare show yesterday, it was not pretty to watch, compelling but ugly.

There is an element to DOND that is not obvious to the normal viewer; each week 6 shows are recorded over two days. So on the day that Saj won £50,000, Jim followed a few hours later [this is nearly correct - see comment from Aaron]. Could it be that when Saj asked the audience for a lot of noise because this was how she operated normally, Jim thought this must be the way to go?

It was clear from his eyes that he was tired, he is no spring chicken, and by that point he had already done two shows that day. Also we see everyone drinking tea, but maybe they are offered something a bit stronger between shows to settle the nerves?

Geordie has already stated on here that by the time he was selected he had not slept for 32 hours, which goes along way to explaining his approach to the game that day, maybe Jim will come on here and tell us what happened to him?

Please Jim, look on it as reconstructive therapy.

3 shows are filmed a day - whilst I was there these were:

Tue-Wed-Thu &
Fri-Sat-Mon

Of these the first show has one audience and the second two have the same audience (though shuffled around a bit!)

So Saj actually filmed straight after David, whereas Jim followed on from James.
