Thanh's Game Report

Noel says we are at the bottom of the courage curve at the moment, he mentions Alfie's and Paul's games in this talk about courage and by having a little more they could have gone away with so much more, he wants to see more courage from the players...

It's Thanh's turn to take the walk of wealth and she has box 6 today, Noel says it's going to be a very individual game today as Thanh is the only person to put her box on the table the way she did... We learn about how Thanh and how her family arrived here from Vietnam, she has her partner Neil with her in the audience and also has a system that is not revealed to us...

Round 1
21 - £250,000 NOT AGAIN!! Two days in a row it goes in the first box!
10 - £3,000
5 - £1
Thanh asks for the book to write her system down as she needs to keep track of it.... It's Bunney next and there is some banter between Noel and him followed by a song from Bunney!!
1 - £50 Noel is still laughing over the Bunney song
20 - £1,000

Thanh says she is sticking to her system, we see Thanh writing some things in the book while Noel talks to the banker. Noel says the banker is in a mood today and he is not afraid of Thanh and her system, he offers £950. Thanh says she is cool with the offer it's NO DEAL

Round 2
17 - £5
16 - £15,000 gets a little 'eeek' from Thanh
Noel says the noise from Thanh was like a small pig being squeezed!! And that Bunney has probably heard that noise from a pig before!!!
18 - £100,000

Thanh asks for box 8 next and Noel asks what is going on, as with all the notes that Thanh is making she should be able to keep track of how many boxes that have been opened... The banker thinks Thanh is out of here depth, he says that because Thanh keeps touching her face she is not comfortable at the moment, Thanh says no it's because she has a spot coming!!! The banker offers £6,123, Thanh wonders what the 123 means in the offer, she's told it could be to help her keep count to 3... Thanh says NO DEAL

Round 3
8 - 1p
15 - 50p
7 - £500

Thanh gets an all blue round, Noel says there were a lot of good things about that round as Thanh remembered 3 boxes and also got an all blue round! We learn that Thanh's system is based around clusters of colours... Noel tells the banker we have colour clusters and they are being mapped, the banker points out that game is random and offers £12,100. Thanh goes to stats man Ryan who says it's OK to carry on at the moment, Noel asks Julie about her thoughts on the stats, she says 36-24-36! Thanh says NO DEAL

Round 4
15 - £50,000 Newbie Phil
2 - £100
Noel asks about Thanh's system and we learn that she practiced about 60 times with the system before deciding to use it...
22 - £10,000

Thanh tries to choose yet another box before Noel stops her again... The banker calls and offers £12,300, Thanh asks Jennifer for advice and she says to go on. Thanh says NO DEAL

Round 5
3 - £20,000 Groans for that one
19 - £10 Cheers as some chants of blue start
More chants of blue
12 - £35,000 screams from Thanh

Noel calls it an all or nothing game now and Thanh yet again tries to choose another box, Noel tells Thanh that she is paying too much attention to the system and not enough attention to the game at the moment. The banker offers £5,000, Thanh says NO DEAL
Round 6
Chants of blue start
4 - £5,000 groans with only one red remaining now
More chants of blue
11 - 10p
Noel asks Sarah if she gets any feeling off her box, she says that she feels the £75,000 is in the other remaining box 9, Thanh goes with Sarah and box 13
13 - £250 Big cheers

It's time for the banker with £75,000 and £750 remaining in the game.

Noel tells the banker that Thanh is still in the battle with him in this game, and the banker offers £20,000. Thanh says she is confident that the £75,000 is in her box, but it would also take a long time for her to earn the £20,000 being offered. Her partner says it's 50/50 and Jasmine agrees but also says that Thanh is confident that the £75,000 is in front of her. Thanh says NO DEAL.

There are BIG cheers for the decision and Noel says she is showing great courage. The banker calls back and offers Thanh the chance to swap her box with the remaining box to test both Thanh's system and Sarah's thought's of box 9 having the £75,000!

Thanh says she always said she would stick with her box if given the choice and says NO SWAP

Noel opens Thanh's box 6 and reveals £750! Box 9 contains the £75,000.

Sarah is proved right in her prediction and looks distraught at the outcome of the game, Thanh takes the result very well.

Noel gets his wish of a contestant showing great courage in their game after his pre-game speech, although it doesn't get the outcome that we all would have hoped for! It will be interesting to hear his opening banter in tomorrow's game after the outcome from this game.
