Roger Green was a finalist in Series 36.
When he lost in his third appearance in episode 2071, Richard Whiteley famously told him that, although he was seeded at #5 at that stage, his record of two wins out of three would not be enough for him to return for the quarter finals just over a month later. However, Green did in fact eventually go on to qualify as the #8 seed for the series. Richard Whiteley subsequently offered Green an on-air apology for this comment at the start of his quarter final against the #1 seed, Bhavin Manek.
