You will have to explain this in more detail. It is MWI that is the deterministic theory; ordinary QM is not deterministic. The local hidden variable account of the QM predictions that people seek is a deterministic theory, involving local FTL interactions. But Bell's theorem rules out such local HV theories. So we are left with QM, which is non-local. No local explanation of the Bell correlations is possible. it doesn't apply to QM assuming that QM is > fundamental.
