The Sleeping Beauty Problem is analysed within the framework of the Many-Worlds Interpretation of Quantum Theory. The view of the Many-Worlds Interpretation as fundamentally deterministic theory with no place for objective uncertainty is advocated. The main concepts of this version of the Many-Worlds Interpretation are reviewed and it is shown how their application leads to a Thirder solution to the Sleeping Beauty Problem, and not to the Halfer solution as it was claimed by Peter Lewis.
