Paul's game report

The week has started off with 2 games that never really got a chance to get going, will today’s game turn this around? Noel introduces the show with a rather comical Roger Moore style little eyebrow routine. He encourages the contestants to forget about the last 2 days and to play their own game against the banker.

Bill's name appears on the screen as 'Cocky Bill' relating to his 'cocky' remarks to the banker yesterday, looks like this name will stick throughout his time on the show now and could make an interesting show when it's his time to play.

Paul is today's contestant and has box 22 today and is pulled up for putting his box the wrong way round on the table, he says he is a risk taker in life and believes that you need to take risks in life, so this could be an interesting game.

Round 1
18 - 10p cheers and applause
8 - £75,000 'oooohhhs'
16 - £750
Paul says it difficult to choose numbers without a system and Noel offers him a system - it's to pick off all the blues first!!!
10 - £10
21 - 50p

Great recovery from losing the £75,000 early in the round.

Noel mentions that Paul might get a great offer here and would he be the first person to walk at the first offer as someone must one day. The banker makes a comment about offering enough money for Paul to bleach all of his hair instead of just half of it as he has now.... He makes an opening offer of £9,000 - Paul respects the offer but says NO DEAL.

Round 2
17 - £100,000 Groans all round
11 - £5,000
2 - £3,000

Paul says he is still feeling good and positive about the game. Banker says they have a lot in common and offers £14,500. Paul says that again it is a great offer and appreciates it, he asks the wings for their opinions - they all say NO DEAL. Paul agrees and says NO DEAL.

Round 3
13 - £1,000
1 - £15,000 greeted initially with silence then a ripple of applause
20 - £250

Paul says he is feeling good now, banker feels good that an amount went that was higher than the last offer and makes an offer for this round of £19,000. Noel goes to 'Cocky Bill' for his opinion on the game and offer, he says it's still a balanced board. Paul says thinks about the offer before saying NO DEAL.

Round 4
19 - £20,000
7 - £10,000
5 - £50,000

A horrible all red round for Paul that really hits that side of the board and leaves only the £35,000 and £250,000 in the reds, Noel says the game has now been spoiled and it's not all or nothing yet but the game has changed. The Banker calls and cuts his previous offer in half and offers £9,500.

Paul says this is where the game becomes a gamble and he has to decide if he would be happy with potentially go away with nothing.... He has a long think about his decision and then says DEAL.

Round 5 - Proveout round
The studio is totally silent, Noel asks if Paul has gone a round too early.
3 - £10
6 - £5
9 - £1

The perfect round if Paul had gone on - Noel says he has 'Blown it' and makes a real point about this. Noel tells Paul to prepare himself for a big disappointment with the next offer from the banker, who calls and says he would have offered £42,000!!! This seems quite inflated and I would have thought it would have been lower if Paul was still actually playing the game, Paul says he would have dealt at that offer if he had played on.

Round 6 - Proveout round
12 - 1p Paul admits this is not going good.....
15 - £500 It gets worse for Paul
Five blues in a row now!!!!
14 - £35,000 Gasps in the audience

That round leaves a final 2 amounts of £100 and £250,000, Noel really rubs in the fact that Paul has potentially lost the chance to win the £250,000 as he would have been so close to winning it and says that he is going to have sleepless nights over his decision to deal early. The banker calls and would have offered £84,000. Again Paul says he would have dealt at that stage.

Noel really builds up the tension in the studio pointing out the high previous offers that were turned down and Paul is now convinced that the £250,000 is sitting in front of him, Noel opens box 22 in front of Paul and reveals £100 to the great relief of everyone. Noel points out that although Paul has sold his box for a profit and cost the banker some money, he had the potential to be the first £250,000 winner with the inevitable swap offer the banker would made.

Noel asks Michaela to open box 4 and reveal the £250,000, that's the fourth show in a row now that Michaela has the £250,000 and although this hasn't been mentioned onscreen yet, I would imagine it's a bit of talking point amongst the contestants and it will be interesting to see if it influences anyone in the next few games.
