Born in Winnipeg, Canada, he shot to fame in 1963 as one of the most popular game show hosts of “Let’s Make a Deal.”
The game show became an instant hit. The audience was encouraged to wear eye-catching costumes from animals to clowns, to goofy cartoon characters. The goal of these costumes was to get the host’s attention. The selected studio audience contestant would begin with trading in one of their items for a prize. Then the prizes began to be traded in for mystery doors possibly holding extravagant prize.
