Weekend Replay: “Deal or No Deal” Hunts for Winner Number Six
Five young women have all won the £250,000 top prize on Deal or No Deal. They’re on the hunt for winner number six and Esher, a bus driver from London, is coming very close. She has one of the strongest five-box configurations we’ve ever seen, with just £1,000 and four of the power five remaining. The Banker has offered £60,000. She’s obviously going to turn that down or it would be one of the shortest Weekend Replays ever. Is Esher going to become the sixth female winner and change her family’s life forever? Or is she about to have one of the biggest collapses in Deal or No Deal history? It’s an edge-of-your-seat moment you won’t want to miss.

It’s very hard to argue with her decision to No Deal at £60,000 and carry on, but towards the end you got the feeling that it wasn’t her day and it wouldn’t be a bad idea to pull the cord. However, the game is all about big rewards for big guts so it’s difficult to fault her for it. It’s what the show is made for and it just didn’t work out. It has other times, after all, in probably the game show moment of the year. Good luck to Esher in the future and thanks for the memorable game.
