The Banker says the last box changes everything, and mentions an envelope. "A gift to you from your loving daddy." Boos. A cheque is being written inside it...

Banker's offer:

£26,000

The Governor?! I'm so dealing! It's the same offer James got on pretty much the same board. Plus, I'd be hopeless at the catapult.

Noel says the Banker doesn't want Ricky near the catapult. He also points out that it's possible to destroy the game in one round, but then adds that it "ought to be possible" to take out two of the five blues. Ricky talks about winning the £250k. Noel says that none of the near-2,000 players who came into the studio came in expecting to fail. Ricky says either of the top two would change his life forever. "I know I can do it," he insists, before mentioning how flattered he is by the offers.

Ricky says NO DEAL.

Noel says only a handful of players have convinced him more than Ricky that the big win is possible, and he talks up the prospect of a £250k win as we head to the break...

Right, I'd probably be saying "F*** the catapult, DEAL!"
I don't remember the last time the Banker has offered £26k on a THREE RED 8-box board! :shock:

We're back. "Will Ricky hold on to the big one and have the Banker on the ropes?"

Noel talks up his destiny. "And I'm not arguing with him," he says. "You could destroy the game, but you're not going to."

ROUND 5

Box 21 (Amy) - £250,000 :|

"I thought he was going to do it," says Noel.

Box 8 (Ann) - £500

Box 2 (Mark) - £100

Catapult time...

Ricky collapses as the phone rings. He's put himself through the wringer here. The Banker again mentions Ricky's young son.

"We're now somewhere where he didn't want to be." "Ping!" says Ricky, making a catapult motion. Noel reminds us of the catapult rules, and that the bronze medal is the largest hole. Obviously, he plugs icelolly.com as he does so.

Ricky's first shot goes well left.

Ricky's second shot also goes left, though not as far wide. Noel points out that a bounce-in doesn't count.

Ricky's third shot also goes left.

Ricky's fourth shot misses narrowly high and to the right of the gold medal. If it had been lower it may have made it into the bronze hole.

Ricky's fifth shot misses horribly high, and the Banker gets to see what's on the table...

The living statue comes out, and then brings box 10 back with the black seal. Noel points out that the Banker has seen Power 5s on three occasions and claimed a blue each time.

"Ricky, I've lied to everybody this week, but I'm not going to lie to you. You've got a blue in your box. Every day this week, there's been a large week. It couldn't last forever. You have a blue. So, I would really recommend you take this offer."

Banker's offer:

£10,000


A few boos.

Ricky now talks about the regret balance. "I've always had a feeling about this game. And the £100,000 is still there."

As Ricky asks for the question, hinting at No Deal, the Banker phones up urging him not to. "At the end of the day, there ain't no guarantees to anything."

Ricky says NO DEAL.

Had a feeling the banker was telling the truth hence the low offer

ROUND 6

"Is that self-belief misplaced?", asks Noel.

Box 17 (John) - £750

Noel says Ricky's emotions are coming out now.

Box 11 (the twins) - £100,000 :|

"I'm gutted, obviously, but I can see now. I [had] come for them, and... I'd have been more upset thinking I could have gone away [with more]." "The worst thing you can leave here with is regret," Noel says.

Box 7 (Liz) - £20,000 :|

"I'm fine, honestly," he insists. "I thought I'd be worse, if you know what I mean".

Banker time

Noel opens Ricky's Box 10 to reveal £250

Box 16 had the £10

Noel says we'll be talking about that game for a long time.

Well, good on him for taking it so well, but that was such a cruel crash. Hope he didn't feel under any pressure to play on at 8-box.

Typical! :(

We finally get a player who shows a good degree of guts and he gets a bad outcome!

Herr Banker has saved an absolute fortune during this special week.

That £26,000 ND was so reckless. I think if there was no catapult, he'd have dealt!

Did not see this game as was elsewhere... though if I did I would have said that he had the £100,000 yesterday.

At last... someone who was more brave and to try their luck... and the Banker was telling the truth this time....

To be honest it's easier to sympathise with someone who has consistent bad luck through the game but Ricky had generous offers. 26K at 8 box was surely worth dealing especially when you consider that 5 box has only brought disadvantage to the contestant this week, and it would be a nice surprise if that changes tomorrow. That said you can't argue with Ricky's courage.
