  • Baudrey was the only £0 winner to actually receive an unfortunate, graphic message explicitly stating, "Total Prize: £0", due to the occasion being the live 300th show; every other £0 winner simply got a blank screen. Unlike the U.S. version, which always explicitly states "Total Prize Money: $0" when a contestant wins nothing (the lone exception being Robby Roseman, the very first $0 winner, since the show never anticipated such an incident ever occurring at that time), on the UK version, the screen typically only says "Total Prize Money" if the contestant actually won something; otherwise, if the contestant did not win anything, then the screen would just be left blank. The only reason why Baudrey received a graphic message explicitly stating, "Total Prize: £0" was because the incident took place on the live 300th show.
