Sometimes game show's just give away answers, other times the questions are just so obscure that it's surprising anyone knows the answers.

Currently watching (I say watching, it's really just background noise tongue.gif) Millionaire Hot Seat - basically Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? - and this was seriously a question...

QUOTE

a) Thesaurus
b) Bronchitis
c) Velociraptor
d) Cerebus

I actually think that's a really clever question laugh.gif Velociraptor is one of the most famous dinosaur breeds but the other 3 all sounds like they could be dinosaurs if you don't know what they are

It is fake. I remember the contestant and she won a few thousand quid. It later became apparent that she was in debt and the prize money allowed her to pay that off. That explained why she was over-excited when she won fastest finger.

She won £32,000, I believe her name was Fiona Wheeler and she took part in Millionaire in 1999.


More funny than anything from The Chase:

There was this one on Fifteen To One:

Sandi Toksvig - which long red fruit has leaves which are poisonous?
Guy - umm...poison ivy?
Sandi - No, it's rhubarb.

And that guy grew up to be...Brett-Butler.

There have been some classics on Pointless over the years. As this is Buzzjack it seems appropriate to use a geography question.

Omg my fave one is where it was something like what colour is the Statue Of Liberty (I'm sure it was that, or something equally iconic that EVERYONE would know) and the woman said pink because "she likes pink" laugh.gif drama.gif

Oh, and I can't resist another of my favourites from Pointless. Xander and Richard's reactions make it even better.
