Start of another week, or is Sunday now start of the week with the change is schedule? Noel tries to sum up Kelly's game in one word, he chooses 'Indecisive' as Kelly took she time over box selection and whether to deal or not.
It's Gaz's turn to take the walk of wealth today, and he does so with box 16, we see pics of Gaz's children, and he shows some pics of them when they were a lot younger just to embarrass them!!!! Gaz has a dream, but will not reveal it yet, he has a target and writes it in the book.
Noel picks on Anna-Marie before the start for revealing the £250,000 on her first show yesterday!
9 - £5,000 audience were not sure how to react there....
11 - £1,000
21 - £100,000 groans for that one
7 - £750
8 - £1
Noel talks about the absence of the £250,000 again!! The banker has been looking forward to Gaz's game, as he was impressed with his skill at predicting his offers while on the wings, he thinks Gaz could replace him when he retires!!! He makes an opening offer of £8,000, Gaz is impressed with the offer and Noel asks will he be the first to walk at the opening offer,
Gaz says NO DEAL.
Noel has a pop at all the Brummies!!!
19 - £250
17 - £3,000
22 - £50
Noel asks Gaz if he would be up for the job as banker, Peter shouts out from the wings that he is not nasty enough! Noel says that comment will be going on Peter's file now. The banker calls and Noel tells him it's a balanced board with both their power 5 looking good, the banker offers £18,000. It's a reference to Howard's game on Friday and Noel confirms it, it's designed to unsettle Gaz as it was Howard's opening offer from the banker and after that Howard's game went so wrong. Neil shouts out from the wings that it's a great offer from a great guy (Howard 2?!) Gaz says NO DEAL.
6 - £250,000 groans all around the studio
14 - £5 cheers
18 - £75,000 groans return
A horrible round for Gaz! He says it could have been better! Noel says that Gaz's courage will be tested now.... The banker is gloating now and won't let us forget Howard's game and gives Gaz Howard's second offer of £1,800! Rachael says the banker is playing mind games and Gaz is also reminded about the so-called power of box 16! Gaz says NO DEAL.
15 - £500
10 - 10p
13 - 50p
A nice all blue round for Gaz. Noel starts to ask about Gaz's dream but is interrupted by the banker's call! Gaz tells him to get him to call back, so Noel hangs up!!! The dream revolves around Gaz tracing his family history and discovering he had a larger family than he initially thought so he wants to take his children to meet the rest of his now enlarged family. The banker calls back and offers £12,500, it's Kelly's offer from yesterday that she dealt! Gaz says it's a good offer and it's not easy - especially now the banker is playing games!!! Noel asks the audience what they think, nearly everyone says NO DEAL, Noel asks Gaz how brave he wants to be, Gaz says NO DEAL.
1 - £50,000 Groans for the highest remaining red
2 - £15,000 more groans
Ned applies Mally's law to his box as he had £35,000 loads of times in the past!! Gaz goes with him
12 - £10 It works!
The banker says that Gaz is still in line for his job and asks what he would offer now, Gaz says £85,000! The banker says he is afraid that the job is already taken now! He then offers £10,000. That gets a mixed reaction from the pilgrims, Rachael says it's a tricky one but she would go on...... Gaz says you are only here once and he's ready for the question, he then says DEAL. Gaz doesn't look sure about that decision and Noel picks up on it.
Round 6 - Proveout round
4 - £100
20 - £10,000
5 - £20,000
That round leaves a final 2 of £35,000 and 1p, the banker says he would have offered £15,000 !
Noel opens Gaz's box 16 and reveals 1p, box 3 contains the £35,000!
We find out that Gaz wrote £2,500 in the book as his target, so he has certainly achieved that and a lot more. It was a tricky banker today who tried to unsettle Gaz by reminding him of the previous games that hadn't gone so well, although Gaz played well and came away with a good sum for the game. The final proveout offer from the banker does seem quite inflated as Fadil had the same final 2 values, but was still in active play and was offered a very reduced offer of £7,200! Would Gaz really have been offered £15,000 if he had continued? Noel says yes, but I think a lot of people will think otherwise!
