Noel talks about the crazy chair and how he thought Millie would go crazy while sat in it!!! But she didn't and came through with a nice win of £28,000, although it could have been higher with the £75,000 in her box.
It’s Paul’s turn in that crazy chair today and he has box 9, we learn he has the nickname of rhino although he's not sure why he's got the nickname. Paul is a self-employed fitness trainer and the crew wondered if he got the name because he's thick
skinned and charges a lot!!! We learn that Paul is an adrenaline junkie and has done numerous extreme sports...
Paul says he hasn't got a system, but has a few lucky numbers from friends which he is leaving til last...
12 - £50
19 - £10
11 - £250,000
5 - 50p
20 - £1,000
Happy with that says Paul as there are still some big numbers there. Noel says the banker will want some free fitness information!! Noel tells the banker that Rhino is here, the banker replies hippo is here. The banker says he is going to boil Paul for three and a half minutes then chop his top off! Noel says he is having a pop at Paul’s image!! The banker then offers £7,500, Paul says NO DEAL
10 - £75,000 Not what we wanted says Noel
Noel says why don't you pick them worst shirts first!! Paul replies ‘but you haven't got a box Noel!!’ Noel then picks on Julian for his bright shirt today!!
1 - £3,000
Paul picks Julian with box 4, but Noel tells him to not open his box and go into Bristol and buy a new shirt while we have a break!!! After the break Julian is still not back, and Noel calls him back and he appears on stage in a black bin liner!!!
4 - £5,000
It's not the best board he's seen says Paul but certainly not the worst, but he's still positive. The banker tells Julian not to bother getting on the coach back to the hotel as there is a dustbin truck stopping by for him later!! He then offers £10,000, good offer says Paul, Lee says the offer didn't surprise him, he says a rhino would win in a battle against a hippo!! Paul says NO DEAL
16 - 1p YES shouts Paul
2 - £15,000 Newbie Debbie
13 - £100
Noel asks if the banker will raise his offer, Paul says it won't be by much if he does. The banker describes Paul as an alpha male and wonders if Millie's game will influence him today, he thinks that Paul will do a relentless charge today just like a rhino!! He then offers £18,000, Noel goes to Julian and asks what do you think kinky!! Julian says that it’s a cracking board and there is another round in the game, Richard agrees and Paul says NO DEAL
7 - £250
21 - £5
3 - 10p YES YES YES YES YES says Noel…
Paul gets a much needed all blue round, and Noel says it’s a powerful position now.
That felt good says Paul. The banker says that the board is stable, which Noel says means he doesn't like it as it’s dangerous for him, and then the banker makes an offer of £26,000. Paul guesses the offer correctly as it has been used by the banker in a few games lately to tempt the contestants to deal. Noel says it's a very clever move by him, Paul goes for advice, Georgina says there is scope to play on but he needs to be careful, Andrew gives similar advice. Paul says NO DEAL
15 - £1 Big cheers and a shout of Yes from Paul
14 - £750 Bigger cheers and shouts as Paul gets 6 blues in a row
17 - £50,000 Ohhh goes Noel
Noel says he thinks the hippo breathed out a sigh of relief on that last box. The banker wonders if there is a legacy from Millie's game, and offers £28,000. Paul says it’s a great offer and then gets advice from Tim, who says that it mostly rides on the £100,000 now. Paul wants a little time to think before saying DEAL
Round 6 - proveout round
6 - £100,000 Perfect start
8 - £20,000
22 - £10,000
It’s time for the banker with £500 and £35,000 remaining, the banker would have offered £14,000, Paul says he would have played on in that situation.
Noel opens Paul’s box 9 and reveals £35,000 to shocked reactions from the audience. Box 18 contains £500
Paul says he happy with his win and very comfortable with his decision, although Noel tries to make a deal out the loss of a potential further £7,000 which is not the biggest potential loss there has ever been, so does seem a slightly strange remark by Noel.
