Deal or No Deal Winner – Alice £250,000 Winner!

Thursday 12 March 2009

Alice took the Walk of Wealth playing Deal or No Deal. Noel Edmonds wasted no time in getting to know the student from Monmouthshire. Alice said that she had also been training as a stunt woman for the past two and a half years and Noel wanted to find out more.

Alice only wanted to pick even numbers in Round 1, avoiding her favourite number 3. Box 12 kicked off the round with £50,000. £10,000, £1, £500 and £5,000 concluded the round.

The Banker said that he found Alice a gorgeous, brave and feisty Welsh woman. 'I have had trouble with them in the past,' grumbled the Banker, referring to the first £250,000 winner, Laura Pearce. The Banker wasn't mucking around with his first offer of £8,500: NO DEAL.

Wanting to get rid of the 'curses' in Round 2, Alice picked box 13, box 22 and the 'newbie'. In fact, newbie Rachael had Box 13, but Alice went for it anyway - revealing £5. 'Death Box' 22 contained a measly 50p. Alice went with Ollie's Box 20 revealing £1,000. The Banker went up to £12,600. Alice answered the question very quickly: NO DEAL.

Round 3 saw Alice revert to her plan of picking even numbers. Box 14 contained £100, which was followed by the body blow of £100,000 in Box 18. The atmosphere turned sombre, but Box 2 contained £10, ending the round positively. The banker's offer was £14,200.

It's getting a bit serious now, but it is still a good board,' said Alice. Noel commented on Alice's daredevil side coming through as he asked the question: NO DEAL.

The buzz grew in Round 4 as £3,000 was unveiled by Maureen. Then 10p was found, before £75,000 made things a little bit more interesting. The Banker offered £15,000 and described it as one of his more 'logical' offers.

He said that he believed Alice always looked at the worst case scenario - if she had the round from hell then £15,000 would be the most she could go away with. Alice said she thought more about the average, which would be around £40,000. The Banker rang back and asked if it would make it easier if he offered £20,000. Alice admitted it would make a difference - so he met her half-way and upped his initial offer to £17,500. Alice said she had never gambled with money: DEAL.

Noel praised the Banker who had upped the offer, which proved too much for the thrill seeker.

As she dealt so early in the game, Alice needed to find the big one in Round 5. £750, £250 and £20,000 simply weren't good enough. The Banker said the offer would be a six-week professional wing-walking course, six weekends of horse riding training and £30,000.

Alice had to find the quarter of a million in Round 6. £50 and £35,000 left Alice with one last chance to find it. £15,000 was revealed and a groans rang out around the Dream Factory. Alice had produced a board configuration seen only a handful of times: 1p and £250,000. The Banker told Alice not to feel too bad as £17,500 would do a lot for her.

The Banker rang back and spoke to Alice. After speaking for some time, she put the phone down and said, 'He's good at his job.

Alice had a choice to make: stick with the original deal of £17,500 or take a 50/50 chance on £250,000 or 1p.

Noel reminded her that the Banker likes having fun too, and watching the agony on her face would give him a real buzz. Alice said that she wished her lucky Box 3 was on the Pound Table rather than Box 8. Noel reminded her that because the £250,000 was still in play, she would be guaranteed the swap if she accepted the gamble.

Noel asked the question. Alice decided to take the ultimate gamble, but declined the swap - sticking with her original box.

What have I done,' agonised Alice, as the tension rose to unbearable limits. Noel flipped open Box 8 and screamed 'Yes!' as he revealed the £250,000. The confetti rained down and her fellow contestants ran towards Alice in a spectacular celebration, which was capped by a standing ovation from the pilgrims.

A choked Noel confirmed that if she had swapped she would have won the 1p. Instead, Alice became only our second £250,000 winner.
