Noel welcomes us to a fresh week and describes Andrew's game as ghastly yesterday as his game went downhill and left everyone heartbroken.
It's Richard's has box 5 today and is cheered down the walk of wealth by a lively bunch of pilgrims today. Richard tells us he is an accountant for the NHS and is involved in working to save/better spend money. Richard says he enjoys wine and is using a custom made wine list, which is headed Meal or No Meal Restaurant to choose his numbers today...
4 - £50
Richard goes down his wine list and chooses 5 next!! Which is his box!!
8 - £50,000 That's a bit sharp says Noel
17 - £10
13 - £1
1 - £10,000
Noel says the board is looking very neat at the moment, Richard is just about to give an accounting tale and the banker calls much to Noel's relief!! The banker says he knows which wine Richard is and it's a complete Pinot!! He then offers £9,900, it's a good opening offer says Noel. Richard says NO DEAL
18 - £15,000 a few groans for that one
6 - £750
2 - £35,000
The banker calls very quickly and Noel is relieved again as Richard doesn't get a chance to give his accounting story!! He makes an offer of £14,500. Noel says that it's a very strong offer and Richard agrees, although he says NO DEAL
14 - £100
16 - £75,000 Ohhhhh goes the pilgrims....
20 - 10p
The pilgrims love that round and go wild... Noel says it's a shame about the £75,000 going... The banker calls and says he can't afford to mess around now, so makes an offer of £20,000. Richard says that is more than he thought at this stage, Paul says it's a generous offer, Tim says that there are one or two more rounds in the game, Mary gives her opinion and Noel starts his pirate impressions saying that he thought Mary would prefer rum to wine!! Richard says NO DEAL
10 - £500 Big cheers
7 - 50p Bigger cheers
Noel tells Richard to start concentrating now and not lose focus
21 - £1,000
That is ideal says Noel, to get to the 8 box stage with the top 2 intact. The banker calls and a shocked Noel says OH WOW, Oh my goodness me this is the most evil offer in the history of Deal or No Deal!! He is offering £25,000 for Richard + an additional £5,000 for Andrew from yesterday!!! It's a new LOW for the banker trying emotional blackmail on a contestant!! Debbie tells him that Andrew would not want him to take that evil offer into consideration as he has played his game and accepted the result, Julian tells him that the banker is trying to blackmail him. Richard says that it is a fantastically evil offer from the banker and NO DEAL
22 - £100,000 Big gasps all around the studio
15 - 1p Newbie David delivers
3 - £5 Big cheers again
Noel says the banker will find this easy now as it all rides on one box. Noel tells the banker he is on another planet, he tells Noel that he is working out the offer on the back of Andrew's torn up cheque!!!! He then offers £30,000 but all for Richard this time!! Jack says it's a good offer and it's time to put on his sensible hat, as one minute from now the whole board and position could change. Just as Noel asks the question the banker calls back and says he has found something!! On top of the £30,000 there is now a blank cheque for £5,000, which Richard can make out to whoever he wants!!! Richard says DEAL
Round 6 - proveout round
19 - £250
11 - £250,000 The whole studio goes wild with chants of RICHARD RICHARD as he beats the banker
12 - £5,000
It's time for the banker with £3,000 and £20,000 remaining, he would have offered £10,000.
Noel opens Richard's box 5 and reveals £3,000, box 9 contains the £20,000
Noel says he has been waiting for an evil phone call from the banker to ask what Richard will be doing with the blank cheque of £5,000, and is quite relieved that he hasn't called. We don't get to hear what Richard has planned for the £5,000. Noel says it has been a very unique game with the offers made today and also the fact that Richard has gone away with two cheques instead of the usual one.
