'Let's Make a Deal' host, philanthropist Monty Hall dies

Monty Hall, host and co-creator of reality show "Lets Make a Deal", has passed away at the age of 96.

While Hall was the unquestioned master of ceremonies, the real stars of "Let's Make a Deal" were the thousands of frantic, exuberant and impressively festooned contestants he plucked from the audience.

Later on, he began hosting for network game shows such as "Split Second", "Masquerade Party" and "Beat the Clock".

An episode of the show named "The Odd Couple" that featured Tony Randall (Felix Unger) and Jack Klugman (Oscar Madison) as the bickering guests on the game show hosted by Hall. His family told CNN that he helped to raise close to $1 billion for charity during his life and that he spent about 200 days a year in fundraisers and charitable work.

McNeil wrote: "Monty kept the show moving while he treated the outrageously garbed and occasionally greedy contestants courteously; it is hard to imagine anyone else but Hall working the trading area as smoothly".

Born in Manitoba, Canada, Hall obtained a chemistry degree from the University of Manitoba.

In 1991, the New York Times published an article about what became known as "the Monty Hall problem" - a probability puzzle hotly debated by mathematicians centering on the advisability of switching choices when given options like those on his show. Hall also made appearances on TV shows including "That '70s Show" and "Good Morning America". He re-invented the catch phrase when announcing who would compete next on Let's Make A Deal.

In 1947, Hall married his wife, Marilyn, who became an Emmy Award-winning producer.
