Well it's the end of another week of DOND, or the start of a new one depending where you think the Deal or No Deal week starts and finishes now!
Noel talks about Madeleine's unfortunate game on Friday before announcing today's contestant to take the 'Walk of Wealth'.
It's Tony today and he has box 10, he gets loads of cheers and shouts as he makes his way to the 'Pound table'. Tony talks about his dream of owning a high class race horse, which Noel points out won't be cheap so Tony must be looking for a decent win today.
9 - £750
14 - £1,000
20 - 1p A BIG 'YES' from Tony
16 - £20,000 mixed reactions for that one
6 - £15,000
Tony starts to pick the next box, but Noel shouts NO to stop him!! Tony says it's not a bad start as the power 5 is still intact. Tony jumps when the phone rings, Noel tells the banker he had a relaxing but naughty Saturday!!! The banker has a present for Tony, it's a card from him and it has a list of tongue twisters in for Tony to practice! This relates to Tony's comical moments on the wings where he kept messing up his words. The banker offers £5,454.45, another nice tongue twister of an offer for Tony!!! Noel gets his tongue in a twist whilst trying to tell Tony the offer!! Tony says NO DEAL.
12 - £500
Tony starts the chants of BLUE BLUE BLUE
17 - £5,000 oooppss the chants didn't quite have the desired effect.
21 - £75,000 groans for the first of the power 5
Tony says it's OK as there are still 4 of the power 5 left. The banker calls the pilgrims a rabble for the noise they are making today! He then offers £10,000, Tony asks the pilgrims what they think, most shout NO DEAL, he then asks everyone to stand up who thinks he should DEAL, no one does! Tony says
1 - £1
7 - £50,000 groans for another of the power 5
4 - 10p Cheers for the blue
Tony looks for another box and starts to call out a number again, but Noel shouts NO!! There is a big pause and then Tony asks what are we waiting for?! Noel tells the banker it's like working with a goldfish!! The banker says that Tony is focused on just one thing which is why he is confused, there is then a great piece of confused banter between Noel, Tony and the banker!! The banker eventually offers £20,000, Noel says the banker is convinced that Tony will take this offer. Tony says NO DEAL.
The pilgrims like that decision, but I don't think his wife was so sure!!
19 - £5 BIG cheers all around
18 - £35,000 groans
5 - £250 Big cheers from Tony!
The banker says he has respect for Tony now, but he sticks on his offer of
£20,000. That offer seems to have stunned Tony, he goes to Ned for advice and tells Ned that the offer doesn't warrant the state of the board. Ann-Marie says the banker is testing Tony now and to say NO DEAL, Tony says DEAL
Round 5 - Proveout round
22 - £10
15 - £100 there is total silence in the studio
13 - £100,000
Tony would have kept the £250,000 in play and the banker would have doubled the offer to £40,000, Tony would have said DEAL.
Round 6 - proveout round
11 - 50p
8 - £50
2 - £10,000
That round would £250,000 and £3,000 as the final 2, and Noel asks Tony how he is feeling while building up the drama of the £250,000 not having been in active play for so long, and has Tony thrown away the chance of winning the top prize. Tony says he never thought the £250,000 would have been in his box as it had been off the table for so long. The banker calls and would have doubled his previous offer and offered Tony £80,000.
Tony says he is really happy with his win as he had never imagined this situation, and would have also dealt for the £80,000.
Noel opens Tony's box 10 and reveals £3,000, there are big cheers and applause as the lowest value is revealed. Box 3 contains the £250,000.
Noel says he is relieved that the £250,000 was not in Tony's box as it gives everyone else on the wings the belief that it could appear in their games.
