Who wants to be a Millionaire

Does anyone remember the girl student that was on the UK one? She came on and talked to Tarrant about what she was going to spend the money on, and that she felt, as she was a University student she was obviously more intelligent that average and therefore in a good position to win a big prize, at least £32k. Very very arrogant indeed. Her boyfriend was in the audience and he was giving it that to the camera (punching the air etc...).

 

Anyway, she doesn't know questions 2 and 3 and uses two lifelines. She guesses question 4 and is lucky to get it right. She doesn't know question 5 either, but refuses to use her last lifeline so early in the game, answers it wrong and goes away with nothing whatsoever.

 

One of the best 5 minutes of television I've ever seen.

The sort of Schadenfreude anyone can enjoy!

 

Being very intelligent, well-read etc etc can help a great deal - but if you get a sideways question (and the traditional testing of quiz applicants involved finding out what they don't know, as well as what they did) and you can still screw up and look a total one. Say you're a class A History or Physics professor - maybe even a young one - you love criket, golf, chart music, eating out. travel, books - covers a lot that - then question three : 'Who is Bob the Builder's female assistant?'...slippery slope to looking a twonk is open.
