Watch Deal With It
- 3 Seasons
Deal With It is a hidden camera prank show that aired on TBS from 2013 to 2014. The show was hosted by comedian Theo Von, and featured two celebrity accomplices, Maria Russell and Brooke Peoples, who were tasked with pulling off elaborate pranks on unsuspecting victims.
Each episode of Deal With It consisted of three hidden-camera pranks, with the celebrity accomplices taking turns as the prankster. The celebrity would be given a set of instructions by Theo Von, telling them what to say and do in order to make the victim uncomfortable or embarrassed. The victim, meanwhile, would be wearing an earpiece, and would be given instructions on how to "deal with it" in real-time by a friend or family member who was in on the prank.
The show was filmed in various locations around Los Angeles, including restaurants, stores, and public parks. Some of the pranks were relatively straightforward, such as asking strangers to hold bizarre objects or perform silly tasks. Others were more elaborate, such as convincing a stranger to pretend to be a fan of a fake band, or asking them to participate in a fake advertising campaign.
One of the unique aspects of Deal With It was the way it incorporated social media into the show. As each prank played out, viewers at home were encouraged to tweet their reactions using the hashtag #DealWithItTBS. The best tweets would be displayed on the screen during the show, providing real-time feedback on the prank and engaging viewers in the experience.
Overall, Deal With It was a fun and engaging show that provided plenty of laughs and entertainment. The celebrity accomplices did a great job of staying in character and pulling off the pranks, while the victims' reactions were always unpredictable and hilarious. Though the show only aired for two seasons, it made a lasting impression on audiences and remains a cult favorite among fans of hidden camera pranks.
Deal With It is a series that is currently running and has 3 seasons (31 episodes). The series first aired on July 17, 2013.
