Candice won £19000

At the end of round two the banker offered £12k, and Candice turned it down as if it was pocket money. Candice was not about to reveal who she really was during this show, she is a performer and this may have been her finest hour. She brought photos indicating an affluent lifestyle, and she showed no emotion throughout. At the end of round three she was offerd £21k, against 4 blues and 7 reds including £75k, £100k and £250k - in fact the only amounts greater than the banker's offer. Again, seemingly without any real thought, she reject the offer and carried on. Round four started with a blue, then the lowest blue (1p) and after the break a £1000 - leaving the top three reds amongst a board of 6 reds - stating that she believed she was due to win the 'quarter of a million', and that it was 'only a game'.

Because all three top reds were still there, this was the most poweful board at the end of round since the start of the program; Candice was offered £33,000 and again without any hesitation rejected it. This was the highest rejection to date.

Then things changed a little: the next box was the £250k, but the following box was £1 leaving only one blue on the board, and the final box of round five was £10,000. The banker then forced the issue, he offered £19000 knowing that Candice could not possibly accept it having rejected £33k.

But the banker was wrong footed, from nowhere Candice accepted the offer. The loss of the £250k seemed to act like a brake in her head - maybe that was her only goal, and having lost it there was little point in going on.

As it turned out, she could have done better by hanging in a bit longer, the next offer would have been £24,000, but as a damage limitation exercise it was not a bad move.

Well done Candice, a lot of girls wanted you to prove that gorgeous women are empty between the ears, and you won that battle too.
