# Monty Hall Problem. If contestant choose door with goat and host reveal it…

I need to confirm this scenario.

1 - The contestant picks a door with a goat behind it.

2 - The host opens this door and reveals the goat.

3 - The host gives the contestant the chance to pick a new door from the two remaining ones.

4 - contestant picks a new door.

5 - The classic scenario. Do you change the door or stay in the same door?

The probability is the same as the original problem (2/3)?

Cheers.

• In step 2, why would the host reveal that the contestant had chosen a door with a goat? That's not how the Monty Hall game works. – littleO Feb 16 '19 at 2:33
• @littleO It appears to deliberately be a variant, judging by the penultimate line. – Theo Bendit Feb 16 '19 at 2:42
• How is what you described different from the original Monty Hall problem? – Victor S. Feb 16 '19 at 2:44
• @VictorS. It differs in step 2. In the original, Monty opens a different door containing a goat, not the door chosen by the contestant. – Theo Bendit Feb 16 '19 at 2:52
• There is something a little ridiculous here. In step 3, the host reveals that the door you picked had a goat behind it. Therefore, it's obvious that you will choose another door - you already know your first choice was wrong. – Victor S. Feb 16 '19 at 3:01
