El Pasoan Appears on Let’s Make a Deal
We all have dreams of being on a game show for a chance to win tons of money & prizes & lately people from El Paso have been featured on television shows. Earlier this year, we had one of our very own appear on Jeopardy, & this week, we had another one of very own make an appearance on Let's Make a Deal. In fact, it was the same man who got to rap on the Jimmy Fallow show last year. It's our very own Julio Ortega.
The host of The Night Shift from All In El Paso was featured on the March 29th episode of CBS's Let's Make a Deal & at first, it didn't register that he was on the screen of contestants for Wayne Brady to choose from. But when Wayne said "Julio", & the camera showed his face (& his Dead Pool costume) it was very clear, it was him.
I asked Julio how he appeared on the show & this is what he told me: "I filled out an application on the CBS website where you had to submit a video submission of yourself if you were a contestant for the show (the better the quality the video, the better were your chances of getting picked. I won a foosball table, a ping pong table (which is good because I messed up my brother's) & a 55 inch TV!"
Unfortuantely CBS looked down the episode off of their website but Julio DID manage to post a video of himself, on both his Facebook & Instagram accounts being chosen to be a contestant, proving he WAS on the show:
