This week’s Deal or No Deal Island competition has whittled the number of contestants from thirteen to five.

Nick Grasso was eliminated in a fierce battle between him and Boston Rob Mariano, resulting in Nick taking the deal from the banker.

Nick leaving the game with $4,417,000 meant Rob stayed another week, and the Night Owls declared that everyone was playing Rob’s game.

Boston Rob Mariano is a reality competition show expert, having been on Survivor and The Amazing Race multiple times, and is the one to beat in the game.

As reported by Monsters and Critics, fans are upset that the so-called Night Owls target Rob and his friend Aron Barbell so fiercely in the game.

But now, some fans speculate that maybe the show is being rigged to favor Rob because so many fans have declared they won’t watch it if he is eliminated.

Fans are commenting after seeing the latest episode of Deal or No Deal Island

NBC showed a clip of Nick Grasso going home with over four million dollars after taking a deal from the banker, but fans are now questioning the show’s operation.

With so many people eliminated against Rob in the game, fans are questioning if the show is being coached. One fan said, “There’s got to be at least 30 writers helping coach this ‘reality’ show.”

Another agreed, “But it’s true Rob is their target.” Then one fan said, “Nick did an interview after this episode and said he would pick Rob, so it is confirmed.”

Another fan wrote, “I’m sensing this Game is rigged for Rob to be the Finalist.”

It is easy for fans to think that maybe producers are nudging the game so that viewers will continue watching it until the finale. They may be forgetting that Rob is such a reality show veteran that he knows what he is doing and can see the moves the others will make several steps ahead.

Maybe he is that good of a player.

Who is left on the Island?

Starting with thirteen contestants, Season 1 of Deal or No Deal Island has five left, and the contestants are firmly divided into two camps.

Everyone knows that Boston Rob Mariano has taken Aron Barbell under his wing, and the two have formed an alliance on Deal or No Deal Island.

The other side has been named the Night Owls, and its members are dwindling each week. With Nick Grasso leaving, the remaining members are Jordan Fowler, Stephanie Mitchell, and Amy McCoy.

Direct.com predicts Boston Rob, Aron, and Amy have a good chance to become millions of dollars richer as the game’s winners.

Deal or No Deal Island airs Mondays at 10/9c on NBC.

Boston Rob is a overrated player he won one time on survivor but has been on a few times because people think he is good. The deal or no deal show should not have any players from others shows it takes from the game. Rob is a cocky conseaded person who thinks he knows how to Play the game they make the game more about him they show him over 70% of the time where you see him interviewed or listening to his annoying voice deal or no deal made the worst by picking him the overrated piece of crap…

YOU ARE COMPLETELY WRONG. ROB is the best person on the show and deserves to win. Shame on you for judging someone you have never met!!

What a stupid article. The show has already been filmed, so it doesn’t matter what fans are saying now, they can’t influence the outcome. Second, Nick didn’t go home with 4+ million dollars.

I don’t think it’s rigged. Of course they want Rob gone because he IS that good. I am also pulling for Rob because I like him but the others want their slice of the pie and Rob is in the way.

Yea we love him. True when he’s knocked off no reason to watch. Lol plus ridiculous that those people don’t just play the game, instead of being jealous against Rob. The 3 with attitudes ruin the game.
