And to think I was watching Betty's game on YouTube yesterday evening! What an omen!

Yes well this shows me that sometimes the banker isn't playing as honest as he says he is. For instance, Tabitha was looking to be going all the way from about eight box and yet that final offer, if he really wanted to buy that box, he didnt really offer her a good enough amount to stop her. And then there are games when the banker appears to be bigging the player up as a brave all the way gambler so he offers them high offers and they take them because truefully they were perhaps not as brave as he made out and he probably knew that. It was the same with the two box offer for Tegan. She had been brave to get to that offer for sure, and he offers a rubbish 77k.

Unbelievable... absolutely unbelievable...

£250k, £50k, a £23k OPW - and now an unlikely £100k... :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: ;) 8)

And I'll bet £440k is the most paid out in any five consecutive shows - after all, that's an average of £88k per show!!! :shock: :shock: 8)

I'd actually be quite surprised if viewing figures didn't rise as a result of all this...

After the last 3 games, now we get what would have been a heartbreaking ending reversed by a box-swap at the end and for the second time in less than a week - I managed to watch it spoiler-free (even if I did have to temporarily unfollow Tabitha on Twitter today).

£26k didn't get Dale out of the chair and it didn't work today either. I bet the Banker must be wishing for some contestants whose family/financial situation might make them less averse to gamble for the next few weeks.

I'll take some happiness that I would have got a £26k OPW today.

Wow, it was the swap on the same finish as Barbara back in 2006, only it went the right way this time (and good becuase I liked Tabitha tons more than Barbara)! :)

Well that was one hell of a turn around given the opening round.

Tough call at the end i think, ideally i would have wanted £30k and i'm not sure if £26k would have been enough for me to cut my loses and play safe. Certainly i don't think it would have been a shameful deal if she'd chosen to take it. As with Kerrie it's hard to tell now much Tabitha's bravery was influenced by the legacy of those who had played before but well done to her either way.

It has been an incredible few days with all the money that's been doled out by the Banker, I'm just glad we had Duane's game in the middle to show that playing to the end isn't the only way to win the game

Wow, a game that seemed destined for disaster early on, quite a turnaround, although it was a bit of a shame that the edit telegraphed a big finish with a 20 minute final part (I think), so it was fairly predictable the £100k would remain to 2-box. Personally I think with the live shows, the last part in some games would need to be 30 minutes to give players sufficient time to make 3 decisions (although they'll probably straddle a decision over an ad break). EDIT: Oh, it's only 2 isn't it? But still...

Anyway, ANOTHER amazing game, and a colossal amount paid out in the last 5 shows! :shock:

I wouldn't be shocked if they straddle every eight-box decision over an adbreak. (And I also suspect they'll drag contestants on to the end to make the timing easier, rather than risking an 11-box Deal when they've rushed through the first three rounds enough to provide time for a game that goes to the end... or is this me being cynical again?!?)

At least an 11-box deal would let them relax a bit and provide a bit more time for interaction with the box-openers and Twitter-users (I'm almost certain the banker will be getting Noel to read out tweets and so on).

I'm genuinely intrigued as to how things can be timed to allow the player to decide over what boxes to pick, to decide over the offers, to allow Noel have interaction with the box-openers and also to allow Twitter interaction. (And who knows what else too!)
