Jetstar Pilot Chris Doyle stood on the precipice of greatness - $200,000 worth of greatness to be exact!
Chris entered the Deal-a-drome with the modest dream of a South African safari and to visit the South Pole. As he explained to Andrew O’Keefe “I take people on holidays every day” and so now was his turn. Choosing Case 9, Chris had budgeted $8,000 for his trip.
With girlfriend Louise in the podium - Chris had a dream run. He lost some cabin pressure, in the form of the $75,000 and $50,000 cases – but kept his cool.
With the $100,000 and $200,000 in play, Andrew challenged Chris to ‘dream big’.
In an effort to land the $200,000 – Chris kept with superstition and avoided Case 13. Lucky he did, as the final two cases had the top two figures - $100,000 and $200,000!
Chris said “No Deal” to a potentially life changing $130,000 offer, to go for the $200,000. In doing so, Chris Doyle became the fourth person in the history of Deal or No Deal, to take out the top prize.
