Highlights of December's shows
TUESDAY 4TH DECEMBER, JAMIE ‘JAY’ PASQUA
Jay is a plasterer from Essex, he currently lives with girlfriend Kerry, he would love to build his own home one day and dreams of having £1million in equity before his 30th birthday, would his time in the ‘Crazy Chair’ take him one step closer to his dreams? Round one was a mixed one with the £1,000, £10,000, £750, £75,000 and £50 all being found. The opening offer was £8,100 - NO DEAL. Round two began with box 5 opened by Ian containing the £250,000! Only to be followed by the £100,000 and £500. With three highest numbers gone the Banker offered a measly £900 – NO DEAL.
Round three began didn’t get much better in Jay’s first all red round with box 16 opened by Joe containing £5,000 then £3,000 and £20,000 all being hit. The Bankers third offer was £3,000 – NO DEAL. Round four was much needed with box 14 opened by Asma containing £5 next came the £250 followed by £100 to provide Jay with a extremely precious all blue round. The Bankers fourth offer was more than double the last at £7,500 but still NO DEAL
With only two of the power five still in play the fifth round was critical and it was a nightmare start with the £50,000 opened by Jules with the 50p and £10 being found last. The banker stuck at £7,500 but Jay still continued NO DEAL. That decision meant it was make or break in round six and things looked up with the 1p going but then it was virtually game over with the £35,000 and £15,000 hit. With the £1 and 10p left the Banker’s final offer was 30p. NO DEAL. Jay’s box 15 contained the 10p in what can only be described as a nightmare game!
FRIDAY 7TH DECEMBER, ASHLEIGH PALMER-JOHNSON
Ashleigh is a student studying ‘Live TV Production’ but could she pass her practical examination on Deal or No Deal? Round one did little damage with the 50p, £10, £15,000, £35,000 and the £50 all being revealed. Which led to an impressive first offer from the Banker £11,000 – NO DEAL. Round two followed in similar fashion with Ashleigh finding the £10,000, £500 and £250. The Banker’s second offer was £20,000 – NO DEAL.
Round three was a bit more serve as the £50,000, £75,000 and £1,000 was revealed. The Banker still offered a generous £16,500 but still Ashleigh replied NO DEAL. Round four began with box 4 opened by Olly containing £5,000 followed by 10p and £100. Which led to the Banker’s highest offer £24,000 – a brave NO DEAL followed.
With big offers turned down the game was at a crucial stage but Ashleigh was right to go on in a great round with the £1, £3,000 and £5 all disappearing. The Banker’s fifth offer was a whooping £40,000! – Which was too much to turn away DEAL. But with the two big numbers still in play was it one offer too soon? It looked like it was with the £750 and 1p going first only to discover the £250,000 in the last box. Even still the Banker would have offer £56,000 at this point. Even worse Ashleigh did have the £100,000 in box 7 but £40,000 isn’t a bad consolation.
TUESDAY 11TH DECEMBER, STUART FORRESTER
Stuart is a Data Analyst for an insurance broker. He lost a Sister in 2000 she was on holiday in America and died of a stroke. He came on the show wanting to make her proud. Round one did moderate damage with the 50p, £1,000, £3,000, £10 and £10,000 all being hit. The Banker’s first offer was £15,000 – NO DEAL. Round two was even better with £1, £100 and £500 completing an all blue round. The Bankers second offer was £25,000 – NO DEAL.
Round three started awfully with Orry opening box 16, which contained the £50,000 but then improved with the £250 and £50 revealed. The Bankers third offer was £27,500 – NO DEAL. Round 4 began with box 20 opened by GLEN containing £5 followed by the £5,000 and £35,000. The Bankers fourth offer was £32,143 a brave Stuart replied NO DEAL. Stuart went into round five thinking he and the chance to win big money and so did everyone else when box 14 contained the 1p only to be knocked down to earth with the next two boxes revealing the £20,000 and £100,000. The Banker’s fifth offer was £37,500 – DEAL.
Stuart had to prove that the £250,000 wasn’t in his box but he found the £750, 10p and £75,000 in Round 6 which means the bankers offer would have been £104,000. We could only hope that Stuart didn’t throw away the chance to be the first male winner of the £250,000. We all breathed a sigh of relief when Stuarts box contained the £15,000, so in effect Stuart sold a £15,000 box for £37,500, which means he ‘Beat the Banker’.

It went a bit downhill in round two with the £20,000, £100 and £50,000 all being hit. The offer was repeated £13,500 so was the answer NO DEAL.
Round three got everyone believing again with the 10p, £500 and £5 completing an all blue round. The Bankers third offer was good £22,000 – NO DEAL was the response. Round four took everyone by surprise when the £250,000 was revealed alongside of the £75,000 and £35,000. The Bankers fourth offer was a far less generous offer £3,500 - NO DEAL. Then things went from bad to worse with the largest number still in play found fist in round five, £100,000 gone. The £50 and £250 also went. The Bankers fifth offer was £1,000 with only the £10,000 higher than the offer Olly took a big gamble – NO DEAL.
Round six was make or break and unfortunately Olly’s game broke. The £750 and 1p went but the killer was in box 21 £10,000 was revealed. The Bankers sixth offer was £450 – a distraught Olly replied NO DEAL. The Banker then offered the SWAP and Orry decided to SWAP his box for Box 14 which contained the £10.
