Jim Graham Sees the Million Dollar Question on “Millionaire: Hot Seat”
Did anyone expect the Australian version of Millionaire, now called Hot Seat, to survive as long as it has? Based on the description and seeing a bit, I didn’t. The show is multiplayer Millionaire, to put it simplistically. Six people play. Answer right and you keep climbing the money tree but miss a question and the top of the tree is knocked down and the next person in line takes your place. Each person can Pass once during the game and go to the back of the line. The game is meaningless up until the very last question and it’s just not a great version of the show, so it’s success on Nine, versus Deal or No Deal, is interesting.
Three people have seen the million dollar question during Hot Seat‘s run. A fourth man, Jim Graham, recently saw it. He answered 13 of the 14 questions correct. You’ll see his final three questions in the clip below. There’s no walking away on this show. He has to answer. Can he be the first person in Hot Seat history to win the million dollar top prize, or will he leave with the consolation $1,000?
