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.

When the unexpected happens

Controversy about Massimo's game continues to rumble (read the comments following his game report). The issue is really about what should have happened after Tom accidentally knocked his unopened box to the floor, thereby revealing the number inside. Endemol treated the matter very seriously and I feel they did their best to find a fair solution so that the game could continue - the problem really seems to be Massimo's reacton to tbe event, his demeanor changed completely. Immediately before the box fell he was laughing and cheering, he had gone across the studio floor to kiss Emma - from the moment the game resumed until the end he looked flustered and subdued.

To me it is how one behaves in the face of the unexpected that differentiates between those who are successful and those who fail...in life. Many people try to regulate their lives so that they feel in control - any change to the routine leaves them confused, and often angry. I feel at once sorry for, and frustrated by, such people - it is the unexpected that makes life interesting - they should rejoice in the change, they should actively seek it out.

My point is that if you are able to create a predictable lifestyle then you are not really living at all, and it leaves you useless when the unpredictable happens, as it inevitably does.
