Tipping Point fans were certain Friday's contestant Pat had already won the episode after just one – very lucky – first round.
After Pat chose her drop zones, she was able to rake in a whopping £1,400 just ten minutes into the show. Her fellow contestants had less than £200 each at the time.
Pat's luck continued into the second round, with presenter Ben Shephard pointing out her "charm with the machine".

The retired contestant found luck in drop zone one, where most of her counters fell over the tipping point.
Ben sarcastically said: "Pat has a very slim chance to lead," as one contestant was eliminated.
One Twitter user said in response: "And today's winner is Pat! #TippingPoint."
Someone else posted: "Pat has been practicing this in Blackpool amusements #TippingPoint."
"Programs over! Pat’s won. That huge drop, no one will catch her up #TippingPoint", another fan sulked.
Ben later reassured Andy, who was left to compete head to head with Pat who was leading the competition with a huge £1,150 gap.
He told Andy: "It might seem like it's a done deal but there's still a fair bit of gameplay to go".
Andy simply laughed, seeming not too keen on his chances at winning against Pat, who now had £2,050 in her pot.
Viewers couldn't help but laugh along, tweeting: "Well, Pat's in the final today with her luck she will win the £20 grand.. #TippingPoint".
"Taxi for Andy #tippingpoint" another quipped.
Pat's luck appeared to run out after she changed her dropzone, which saw no counters fall over the tipping point.
Andy, who Ben said had "battled really hard" couldn't top Pat's score and was eliminated, losing the £1,400 he'd accumulated.
Fans weren't too fond of the obvious outcome for the episode though, with one heading to Twitter to write: "I'm pleased for her but, it's made the game boring. See you at #thechase #TippingPoint".
