A serious Noel does the opening question today! He runs through Lynne’s game yesterday and the superb game and outcome she gave us, he talks of the courage shown by her and tells the other contestants that more of the same is needed from them to continue a run of good wins. He asks if today’s contestant will have the same courage that Lynne showed yesterday. The board runs through the contestant's names and stops on Steve.
Steve takes his seat in the crazy chair with box 3 today, he has his daughters in the audience with him for support today, his wife was afraid to join him today as the drama and tension would have been too much for her. Steve is a BIG gambler and does all sorts of betting, Noel asks if he has a target and Steve turns to his daughters who say £250,000!
22 - £10,000
5 - £1
15 - £100,000 groans for the first of the power 5
10 - £5,000
9 - £3,000
Steve says the board is alright at the moment. Noel asks how the banker is today after his beating by Lynne today, he says he could have done without facing Steve today!! He says it is a battle of gambler vs. gambler, and doesn't make a money offer! Instead Steve gets the chance to swap his box with any of the remaining boxes left. Steve says You're having laugh! He decides to keep his box.
12 - £1,000
11 - £500
21 - £250
Steve is still happy with the board as are his daughters, Noel asks Steve what he would spend the £250,000 on if won it, and one of his daughters calls out US! The banker thinks Steve nearly slipped up with something he said earlier, and he also thinks that Steve will look back and regret NOT taking the swap last time! He offers Steve £16,100, Steve says it's a fantastic offer, Ned agrees and also says he has the banker on his back foot at the moment, Steve says NO DEAL.
4 - £75,000 some groans for another of the power 5
18 - £100
7 - £750
It was topsy turvy says Steve, Noel points out that it was BUT the big one is still in play. Noel does his £250,000 banter again saying it has been away from the table for so long now. The banker says it is still a gamblers game and offers £6,000, but then Noel adds after a BIG pause for EACH daughter!! So the offer is £18,000, Steve says what about my Son!!! The banker calls back and ups it by £9.99!! The final offer is eventually £18,009.99, Steve says NO DEAL.
1 - 10p
19 - £20,000
16 - £35,000 groans for yet another high red
Noel says it was not a good round with 2 high reds going, but the big one is still there, he says the banker is being horrible now and that last round has cost him a daughter and his son!! The banker offers £12,000, Steve tries to get an extra £500 out of Noel by saying £12,500 was it? Noel says nice try!! Steve says NO DEAL.
20 - £250,000 Groans all around
