Ben Hanks against Harry Barnett.

Ben Hanks was a finalist in Series 58.

Debuting in one of the series' highest scoring games, he racked up a total of six wins and 580 points, which made him the #7 seed for the finals. He turned up with bright blue hair for his first week, and returned with red hair the following Monday, but it wasn't a good luck charm as he lost by 5 points.

Hanks eventually qualified for the finals as #8 seed, where he faced runaway #1 seed David O'Donnell. O'Donnell beat him comfortably, but Hanks did manage to stop him scoring a century.
