Farewell to Meredith Vieira: Meredith Quizzes Regis Philbin
All week we’re looking back at memorable Millionaire moments as Meredith Vieira prepares to leave the show this Friday. Don’t forget to watch Cedric the Entertainer step into the position this September. Our next moment steps out of syndication. One of the bigger events this decade in game show was Who Wants to be a Millionaire‘s return for ABC during its tenth anniversary. It gave us some memorable moments, like the first person to ever miss the million dollar question. The final day gave us the biggest surprise, though.
Meredith came onto the set to thunderous applause and prepared for the celebrity question, where the person playing could win $50,000 for charity. Meredith had a big twist for Regis, though. She also gave us one of the best fake-outs the show has ever seen.
Take a look.
