23-year-old Cork native Suzanne Mulholland has become only the 3rd Quarter-Millionaire on Channel 4 gameshow Deal Or No Deal. The Irish lass who now lives in Bristol joins Laura Pearce and Alice Mundy as just the 3rd person to win the top prize in the show's 6 year history.
In the special game which aired today, all the pilgrims and contestants as well as Noel were once again dressed up as Cowboys and Indians for special Banker's Birthday episodes which have aired all week with a special twist seeing contestants trying to throw a can into a large plastic mouth.
Suzanne revealed in today's show that she and her fiancée Simon are hoping to win big for their wedding in 2012. However, in a completely unexpected game, she ended up left with 4 of the Power Five (amounts from £35,000 to £250,000) and just 1 Blue amount. After successfully throwing a can into the mouth, she was guaranteed a holiday as well as an offer after every box was opened.
After coolly turning down £30,000, Suzanne proceeded to take out £5 leaving her with a minimum win of £35,000. After turning down £75,000 she took out the £35,000 leaving her just 1 box away from a first, first player to be left with the two biggest sums of money (£100k and £250k) in live play!
Even £110,000 couldn't tempt Suzanne away and screams of delight echoed around the Dream Factory as Kerry-Anne revealed the £50,000, she had the perfect finish! Then came the offer, as we heard the Banker crying to the viewers and audience's delight before the biggest offer in Deal history - £165,000! After some consideration, plucky Suzanne went for it and accepted the swap.
You won't need any more details as it's pretty clear what happened next but with Suzanne becoming the 3rd quarter-millionaire, here is a photo of the delighted lady and her fiancée with the winning box!
Well done Suzanne from all at TellyMix!!!!
