Win big on Deal or No Deal

What would you do with $1,000,000? Do you think you could choose the million-dollar case on "Deal or No Deal?" Well, you can't do it unless you apply to be a contestant, right? Keep reading to discover how you can apply to be a contestant on "Deal or No Deal?"

Grab the video camera or borrow one from a friend, and then create one 5-minute video letting the producers of "Deal or No Deal?" know more about you (your name, where you live, what you do for a living, your hobbies, what makes you unique and your personality). Furthermore, let the producers of "Deal or No Deal?" know what you would do if you won the $1,000,000 prize. In addition, your video must also include the people you would like to invite to go with you to the show and be your "supporters."

Place a label with your name, address and phone number on the videotape, and "Rewind" your tape to the beginning.

Download the "Deal or No Deal?" application from NBC's website (see resources). You will need Adobe Reader to view the "Deal or No Deal?" application.

Print out the "Deal or No Deal?" application and honestly answer all the questions. Make sure the application is legible and signed.

Find two clear photos of yourself and your "supporters" to include with the videotape and application. One photo should be a close-up shot and the other a full body shot. If you and your "supporters" do not have a clear close-up and/or full body shot, then find someone to take these pictures for you and have them developed.

Clearly write each person's full name and phone number (including area code) on the back of their photos.

Gather your 5-minute videotape, the completed and signed application, and all of the photos. Next, place all of these items in a package, and then seal the package.

Write your name and address in the upper left-hand corner of the package. Then, place the following where the recipient's address should be:

DEAL OR NO DEAL CASTING PO Box 1916 Culver City, CA 90232

Go to your nearest post office and mail the package. Once the package is in the mail, cross your fingers and hope you get the call to be the next "Deal or No Deal?" contestant!

Tip

Calling and e-mailing NBC and "Deal or No Deal?" won't get you on the show. You MUST follow the steps above or attend an open call in or near your area.

Warning

Your videotape MUST be a VHS tape only. Your videotape must be 5 minutes, and you should speak clearly and be able to be seen in the video. All photos must be clear.
