Trato Hecho (Argentina)

Jump to: navigation, search

Trato Hecho (English: Done Deal) is the Argentine version of Deal or No Deal. It airs on Telefé and is hosted by popular Argentine game show host Julián Weich. The grand prize is 500,000 Argentine pesos, approximately: US\$32,000, €30,000 or £26,000 . The grand prize was originally 250,000 pesos.(equal to £13,000, €15,000 or US\$16,000).

Initially, the group of participants is divided into two sections. A round of trivia questions is carried out in order to determine a winning section. This section is then divided into 5 teams of 25 people each. After another round of trivia questions, the 25-person team with the highest score advances to a third trivia question round; a 26th participant selected randomly from the losing half of the initial crowd joins them. Each of these 26 participants will hold a case in the final phase of the show. After the third trivia question round, the final two participants are presented with a mathematical problem in order to determine the one participant who will play the case game for money.

Participants who are not playing the case game but are holding one of the other 25 cases are often given a chance to guess the amount of money that their case holds prior to opening the case. A small amount of cash is awarded to the holder if the guess is correct.

One player on the Argentine version said "Deal" to a very small amount - only five centavos (0.05 pesos). He was left with amounts of one centavo (0.01 pesos) and ten centavos (0.10 pesos), and it turned out he had only 10 centavos in his case all along. This was aired when the grand prize was 250,000 pesos. This version finished in March 2006 due to low ratings.
