Reverend George Greenhough was an octochamp in Series 48.

He made his debut on 1 November 2002, beating 4-time champion Sheila Furse, thanks mainly to spotting PRESIDENT in his first round. He quickly rattled off 8 wins to become an octochamp and the series' #3 seed, missing out on being #2 seed by just a couple of points. However, he was beaten in the quarter-final by fellow octochamp Joe Zubaidi. He was the reserve player for Championship of Champions XI, but wasn't needed for the tournament.
