Booby Prizes, Roasts & Spoofs

Zonk Award - On the audience participation quiz game show LET'S MAKE A DEAL/NBC/ABC/1967-71 not all of the contestants would make the right choices. Host Monty Hall gave the players the choice of three doors. Behind two of the doors, there were great lousy przes like an old goat or cow. These worthless prizes were called "Zonks," the program's official name for their Booby Prize. If a contestant was lucky, however, and made the correct choice, they won a fabulous prize like a brand new car or boat or living room set. The dilemma of choosing the correct door - among three - is now known to mathematicians as "The Monty Hall Problem."
