DEAL WITH IT – NEW EPISODES
Deal With It ups the ante for Season 2, with more extreme challenges and outlandish players. The hidden camera game show from Just For Laughs Television follows hosts Sandy Jobin-Bevans (Life With Boys) and Martin Roach (Aaron Stone) as they put ordinary people into extraordinary situations. In each 30-minute episode, the hosts choose restaurant patrons to follow a series of secret instructions whispered into a concealed earpiece – while their dinner companions have no idea what’s going on. The players must complete a set of increasingly outlandish and difficult tasks – anything from casting magic spells or eating blindfolded, to sporting scuba gear or roller skating around the restaurant. Players must put all their improv skills to the test, and if they don’t lose their cool, quit, or – most importantly – get found out by their companions, they can win up to $2000 on the spot. Season 2 of Deal With It airs Fridays at 7:30 p.m. For more information about the series, please clickhere.
