Could You Miss the Million Pound Question Twice?
No fan of Who Wants to be a Millionaire, regardless of the country, will be able to forget Ken Basin’s $475,000 loss after giving the wrong Final Answer to his million dollar question. It’s the moment you never really wanted to see, but you still wanted to a little bit. Did you know it happened in England first, though? Well, it sort of happened. On a special celebrity Valentine’s edition, Laurence and Jackie Llewelyn-Bowen had the rare chance to face a million pound question twice. The video of the moment has only recently been revealed, finally, and it’s a much different reaction than the American miss.
The story is that the couple was given an ambiguous question about the motto of the United States, translated from Latin. They answered, “In God We Trust,” but the actual answer was, “One Out of Many.” ”In God We Trust,” is the legal motto, so they were given the chance to answer a second million pound question, which they wisely walked away from. No one gambles £468,000 twice, especially after what happened. The reaction to the loss from Chris and the audience is pretty different than the American one. Compare the moments below. The UK video is split into two parts, so apologies in advance.
It’s a cool moment in Millionaire history that I’m glad we finally got to see. What did you think?
