    It’s possible that Derren had already bought tickets for all the horses, and swapped them when realizing who would win the race. I couldn’t see him doing so, but we didn’t get to see them the entire race.

    There weren’t more people involved in the last race of course, since Derren was with that woman all the way through.

    I did realize how he did it pretty soon though.

    After watching the coin thing, I just threw one five times for the fun of it, and it was heads all five times.

    It definitely WAS that he put the bet on all horses, that much money is nothing for channel 4.

    In one of his books, and in ALL books on mentalism one of the simplest tricks is to say something along the lines of “think of a number between 1 and 10,” you then have 10 pieces of paper with 1 to 10 planted around your person.

    If they say “6” you reach into your number 6 pocket and you look like you anticipated their choice and are somehow psychic or you persuaded them to choose 6 with “psychological insight” or whatever you want them to believe when all it is is a simple trick.

    That’s all he had to do with the tickets at the end, if hers won he looks amazing, if another won he pulls the corresponding ticket out that he heroically “switched” with his mystical system.

    He looks amazing, channel 4 pay what, £20,000 for tickets but increase ratings for his shows raking in more money from advertisers!

    I wonder why such people as Darren Brown or Uri Geller, if so good, then why not turn this goodness into God Use and, for example, find Mr O Binladen ?

    Hi Sash. Mostly because TV magic and mind tricks are not much use for locating CIA’s most wanted! It’s good entertainment, that’s all.
