Let's Make A Deal's Monty Hall Dies at 96

TV host Monty Hall arrives at the 3rd annual Jerry Herman Awards at the Pantages Theatre

Monty Hall, co-creator and host of the game show "Let's Make a Deal", died on September 30, 2017, at 96.

"Let's Make a Deal" is also known for audience members, who dress up in outrageous or insane costumes in order to increase their chances of being selected as a trader.

The game show host began his career in regional television in the 1950s and early in the 60s on several television shows, including "Cowboy Theater", "Fun in the Morning", and "Video Village", according to the website IMDB. Hall would host the popular game show until 1986.

In 1963, "Let's Make a Deal" premiered, with its premise of contestants wearing wacky costumers trying to win prizes.

Hall is survived by three children, Joanna, Sharon and Richard, as well as five grandchildren.

Our thoughts are with Monty's family during this time.

Therefore, #Monty Hall will go down in history not only for hosting a long-running game show, but also for his humanitarian work.

Friedman's remarks are "very bad news for the future of any American attempt to make peace in the Middle East", Shaath added. US President Donald Trump is seeking to restart frozen peace negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians.

Hall was also known for doing lots of charity work in his private life.

Hall earned a degree from the University of Manitoba with the goal of becoming a physician. They devised "Let's Make a Deal" in which Hall picked people from the audience to become contestants in sort of a trading game.

Hall also produced other game shows, hosted variety shows and appeared as a guest star on television series.

Hall and his wife, Marilyn Plottel, married in 1947.

In 1991, the New York Times published an article about what became known as "the Monty Hall problem" - a probability puzzle hotly debated by mathematicians centering on the advisability of switching choices when given options like those on his show.

When a People magazine interviewer suggested in 1996 that "Let's Make a Deal" would be his epitaph, Hall replied, with a wince: "You put that on my tombstone, and I'll kill you".
