Re: Who Wants to Be a Millionaire


Yeah, that might be possible, too. The show started over 10 years ago, of course it became easier for me to answer these questions. But that's not the only reason. You probably have these fun questions in the UK, too, when all answers are some kind of puns. They used to be asked during the first 5 questions, but now they can pop up during the first 7 questions or so.

btw. yesterday we had a contestant who won nothing emoticon A few years ago we had three blondes in a row who didn't win anything. emoticon

They used to have the first question as one with stupid answers in the UK. I know they dropped those first few questions though, as they were too easy I guess.
People winning nothing is the best emoticon How could you get three in a row though!? emoticon

The last answer in US Millionaire on question 1 was always the 'silly' answer. Although that doesn't happen any more in the UK, I don't think. And it certainly doesn't in the new US random-money-tree format.

Re: Who Wants to Be a Millionaire


We have a new format in the U.S. Shuffle format. It's really difficult to explain. Basically the first 10 questions have random money amounts. If you answer a question correct the money goes into your bank. If you answer all 10 questions then you get to keep your bank. You then get to play further with four more questions valued at
100,000
250,000
500,000
and 1 million
It's difficult but it's better than last years format. We haven't had a real winner since 2003. This guy came close.

Canada had a version, but it flopped after two episodes because the US version was already airing in Canada, and the Canadian version was VERY similar to the US version at the time.

I think stupid answers went out in the UK when the clock came in. No time to laugh, I suppose.

Did they go when it went to the 12 question format? I just don't think they'd have a silly answer in a £500 question.

Re: Who Wants to Be a Millionaire


I poststed this in the HowMon topic this morning as I was watching, but thought I'd move it to here seeing as we alreay had a Millionaire topic. I just posted as I watched!:

Gekidan is on Who Wants to be a Millionaire at the moment, and Mari is in the audience to support him emoticon

Not sure if she's a lifeline or something. She has a spotlight on her. I've just turned it on and he's at 1 million, but that's only three quarters of the way.

He's talking about Paul Potts now... And signing opera again emoticon

They're asking what wiki means in wikipedia/wikileaks. I don't know. But yay for actually understanding the question.

They have a one minute clock for each question.

He's Phoning a Friend - someone who works on HowMon! It's Koike, the rubbish cameraman from the 7/30/100 cameraman movies!! It's Team HowMon emoticon He's only 4 away from the jackpot.

Just looked it up. It means fast/quick. IT'S A BREAK.

NOOO, Koike didn't know. Gekidan's using Ask the Audience.

And 50:50. OMG. He's gone for D. That's worng emoticon


WRONG!!! NOOOOOOOOOOO.

Audience are stupid. They voted on answers A and D the least, and those were what the 50:50 left.


I did try and record it, but it didn't work emoticon

He got 1,000,000 though as that was the drop down to level thing if you got it wrong. So he did actually win a million emoticon
That was a nice surprise anyway!
