Dave Walters from Sheffield, South Yorkshire, appeared on The UK Version of the show on August 3rd, 2010. He was the second contestant of the 2010 Clocked edition. He is a retired fireman, and part-time carer. Dave has been married to wife Sarah for 7 years (at time of filming.) He won £1,000, after incorrectly answering Question 7 for £50,000, which meant he lost £19,000.
Dave's Run To The Million Edit

|£1,000 (2 of 12) - 15 seconds|
|The word 'flurry' usually refers to which of these weather conditions?|
|• A: Sunshine||• B: Snow|
|• C: Mist||• D: Fog|
Chris and Dave talk about how Dave's 'calmness' when he entered the set has now disappeared. A special Good Luck Message from Dave's wife Sarah, daughter Grace, and Jordan, the boy he cares for is played. His daughter wants him to win lots of money so that she can pay off her student loan.
|£2,000 (3 of 15) - 30 seconds|
|The Rosamund Street Medical Centre is featured in which TV Soap?|
|• A: EastEnders||• B: Coronation Street|

|• C: Pool||• D: Triathlon|
Dave says he has 2 children of his own, and 2 step-children.
|£10,000 (5 of 12) - 30 seconds|
| In the Harry Potter stories, what kind of creature is Firenze?|
'Ask The Audience' and '50:50' lifelines used
|• A: Dragon - 22%||• B: Centaur - 19%|
|• C: Phoenix - 23%||• D: Owl - 36%|
|With 19 seconds remaining, Dave chooses to Ask The Audience. Because of the very small majority of just 13% for D, Dave goes 50:50, with 14 seconds left. This removes options A and D. D was the Audience's most popular choice. Dave chooses B because 'it rings a bell'.|
An Ad Break is taken. When the show returns, Dave says he wants to get to £50,000, and that he has some good Phone-A-Friends waiting.
|£20,000 (6 of 12) - 30 seconds|
|By what name was the wife of US President Nixon known?|
|• A: Louisa||• B: Letitia|
|• C: Frances||• D: Patricia|
|Dave gives his answer with 8 seconds left. For the previous 22 seconds he remained silent while thinking about his answer.|
|£50,000 (7 of 12) - 30 seconds|
| Which element makes up most of the human body weight?|
'Phone-A-Friend' lifeline used
|• A: Oxygen||• B: Nitrogen|
|• C: Sodium||• D: Carbon|
|With 17 seconds left, Dave phones his friend Alan. His other two Phone A Friends are his wife Sarah, and bother-in-law Simon, who Chris says "Looks like Oliver Reed". Alan used to be a school caretaker, but is now a stage manager. Alan says he's not sure, but thinks it is D: Carbon, as humans are Carbon-based lifeforms. He doesn't give a percentage of confidence, as the Phone A Friend clock runs out before he has the chance. Dave says he thought the answer would be water, which is not an element, but a compound, of Hydrogen and Oxygen. With 3 seconds left, Dave chooses Carbon. This is incorrect, and he leaves with just £1,000.|
Dave says "£1,000 isn't bad for an afternoon's work."
