Georgina says that's not what she came for. Stu asks how she felt when she no dealt the last offer of £5,000 and Georgina says she didn't really think about it. Noel says 10p won't help her theatre company. The banker phones back and says it was difficult watching Georgina being so frightened during the last round, and she'll have to frighten again herself if she no deals.

Ron asks if Georgina would normally gamble £5,000 and she says she wouldn't, and Shaun says the final offer will be more than £5,000 if she has an all-blue round. Karl says the odds are stacked against Georgina, and she says she's never done any gambling before. Patricia talks about Dale's game and how his gamble paid off.

Noel asks the question and Georgina starts to say "no deal" when the banker phones. He says he's a bad man but will offer some genuine advice, which is to not blow it and take £5,000!

Georgina says

DEAL

Round 6 - proveout

Noel says he thinks Georgina did the right thing.

14 - newbie Big Al - £10

12 - Patricia - £50

"OH NO... oh my word!!!" shrieks Noel.

8 - Karl - 50p

Banker time with 10p and £75,000 remaining...

Noel says the cynics must realise this is a tricky game to get right. The banker says again that he's such a bad man! Noel says he has to play on with honesty now. He's tempted to say the offer would've been £20,000 but it wouldn't be true.

Banker's offer would've been:

£5,000

Box 5 with Dylan contains the £75,000

Noel says that was like going through an emotional tumble-dryer! Georgina says what improvements she can make to her company with the money.

£5,000?! There is NO WAY the offer would've been that low. The Banker just did that to avoid the guilt trip.
I heard her say "No Deal" as Noel asked the question and the Banker just had to RUIN it by ringing back. :evil:

As ridiculous as the normally inflated proveout offers. If she'd knocked back the five box offer she must have been offered 15k or so.

Spot on.

If she'd been brave enough to go on,having been so tearful and fearful,then the least the banker would've offered is 20K.

As you say,he didn't think it would be right to give the real offer because it was his call that stopped her completing the phrase "No Deal"

And yet no offer of the banker's gamble. The cynic could say that the banker knew there was no way she'd taken 75k home and all the attempts of getting her to deal at 5 box when she still had it in play were to stop her from going home with nowt. Then, feeling guilty about throwing her off saying no deal, he went for the prove out stick at a seriously low amount (though he has played some people like that in live play recently).

Anyway, thats just the cynic not me. Personally I thought George was a lovely contestant and glad she got something from the game. Whether or not the banker would have gone up or not at 2 box is neither here or there.

A rather strange game I thought.

I think at two-box, the Banker had a rare feeling of a guilty conscience. He did say that the offer would have been £20,000, or was that just hypothetical speak? Hence why he stuck at £5,000.

The Banker himself did not help the situation when Georgina distincly said 'No Deal' a fraction of a second before the phone rang. I thought in that situation, her answer would have stuck.

Been a strange few days on Deal. Although we already know which is game of the month by a long shot, (Dale) some others leave a lot to be desired.

Phil.

Odd proveout offer. That said, I would never offer that player £20,000 myself. I'd have offered £10,000. I think £5,000 is too much of an insta no deal whereas £10,000 will cause certain people to stop and think.

What the heck is going on? Noel's suddenly not only stopped the guilt trips but is almost willing contestants to deal. The banker is avoiding the guilt trip it should have been today (maybe not £20k but £15k at least)

Well at least no-one can accuse the show of being predictable these days.

Yes, strange times indeed in the Dream Factory, a rare deflated proveout offer perhaps brought upon by conscience. I think the players are attaching too much emotional significance to the amounts at the moment instead of placing it in the context of the game. However, today's decision was much more justifiable than yesterdays.

Currently in Bristol and I'm seeing a few live games tomorrow! :D

Have Endemol suddenly realised that encouraging players to go on will cost them money they can't afford right now, that Dale's game risked a Wakeyist spiral if Noel reacted effusively enough, and hence started pulling his strings the other way?

Two wrongs don't make a right. Three lefts do.

Was today's hypothetical offer a parody of past inflated offers? The mooted One Rock would have been realistic, and just about enough to take me out; as the Banker, I'd have opted for £15k or so.

I find it hard to believe that the banker would've gone as low as £5,000 at 2-box. He normally rewards bravery, even when the player's cautious (and sometimes especially when the player's cautious) so I think £15k would've been nearer the mark. I suppose we'll never know for sure.

31st January 2011 stands out for me as being the 4th anniversary of Bunney's game - a manic love-him-or-hate-him player who had a great board and dealt at £110,000. Quite a contrast to today's game.

Wow hard to believe it's four years since Bunney's game! I think today's show was controversial because of George no dealing although it isn't the first time that the banker allows a contestant to change their mind. £15,000 could well have been the offer at two box, if not then I think there was more chance of "old faithful" 26K than sticking at £5,000, and as paulyc said if he was going to stick at 5K then why not have the banker's gamble?

A Power 5 and 4 blues 5 box seems to create proceeding one box at a time to get an offer which would inevitably have climbed significantly with each box, but the banker didn't use it.

All in all the banker disappointed today. :(

A tough game, George was a wonderful bubbly contestant and she was clearly there for chunky money, but the board did not go in her favour.

I think the £5k deal at five box was the right way to go for George, just a shame she couldn't find that last red in proveout.

We've had the curse of the hottie of course but could George have been the victim of another curse that seems to plague the dream factory, the curse of the altruistic player. She's not the first player to come along with dreams of getting enough money to invest in a charity project, only to find luck was not on their side
