It’s Stephen’s turn to take the walk of wealth today, and he does so with box 3. Stephen speaks French, German, Spanish, and Italian... Noel says that the banker won't have much on him as he hasn't been there for long, and he will also hate him for being so educated!!!!

That was the best one to hit in that block if you were going to hit any says Noel... The Banker offers £25,000… Noel asks why is the banker putting so much on the £20,000 going, as the offer could have shot up there really... Robin gives Stephen some advice, and says it's an excellent offer... Stephen asks if they can wheel out the £25,000 so he can feel it a bit!

… There are a few groans for that offer, and Noel says he knew there would be that reaction, but Stephen needs to think carefully about this offer... Robin offers more advice, and again says that Stephen should think about this... Stephen goes for a sweep of the wings... There is a mix of replies... Robin says that he should deal, and Stephen asks why. Robin replies that HE should deal, as it would set him up nicely in life... Stephen says DEAL
There are groans for that decision...
