Root for local man on "Let's Make a Deal" LILBURN -- Paul Parham of Lilburn will be a contestant at 10 a.m. Monday on "Let's Make a Deal." "Let's Make a Deal" is a game show where audience members dress in "outlandish costumes" to win cash and prizes by making deals with the host. The new, one-hour series is hosted by Emmy Award-winner Wayne Brady at the Sunset Bronson Studios in Hollywood. The original "Let's Make a Deal" was a television game show staple during the 1960s and 70s when it was hosted by Monty Hall from 1963-1977. While later versions aired in syndication and primetime, the game show is best remembered for the years hosted by Hall, who will serve as a creative consultant of the latest version. Gwinnett Gab appears in the Thursday and Sunday editions of the Gwinnett Daily Post. To submit an item to Gwinnett Gab email gab@gwinnettdailypost.com.
