Who Wants to be a Millionaire?

Since its first screening in the UK in 1998, Who Wants To Be a Millionaire? has become a global phenomenon. Over 20,000 contestants have appeared on 81 different international versions of the program, answering a mind-boggling number of trivia questions.

But one question was never answered. The riddle at the centre of it all,  staring us in the face for years. We never bothered to ask ourselves: Wants To Be a Millionaire?

  1. Tim?
  2. Yes

    Yes

    Yes

    No

    No

    No

    Flowers of greed have sprouted from Tim’s greedy nipples. You can imagine them endlessly screaming ‘Give me a million dollars! I want it!’

  3. Mean Old Alice?
  4. Yes

    Yes

    Yes

    No

    No

    No

    That was an easy one!

  5. Latisha?
  6. Yes

    Yes

    Yes

    No

    No

    No

    Latisha is already a millionaire, but wants to be a trillionaire. Nobody has told her this is actually super hard.

  7. Tyrone?
  8. Yes

    Yes

    Yes

    No

    No

    No

    Tyrone would do unspeakable things in the name of making a million dollars. But he wants to give all of the money to charity. Do his means justify his ends? That is none of your business.

  9. Pete?
  10. Yes

    Yes

    Yes

    No

    No

    No

    Pete only cares about having the most beards. Every cent Pete earns goes straight into buying other people's beards for his collection, so he’ll never be a millionaire. And that’s fine by him.

  11. Hugo?
  12. Yes

    Yes

    Yes

    No

    No

    No

    'Half-pint' Hugo died shortly after this photo was taken while driving unlicensed. Technically, he no longer wants anything.

You have no idea who wants to be a millionaire. A dim-witted baby monkey’s ability to guess whether a total stranger wants a million dollars is superior to yours. This must be humbling for you. Hopefully you are good at other things.

You have some idea of who wants to be a millionaire. Occasionally, you are able to spot that telltale eye-twinkle that screams 'I want a million dollars please'. However, you tend to mistake that twinkle for romantic interest in you, leading to severe embarrassment.

You have a real aptitude for identifying people who want to be millionaires. This is a handy skill, but you should still learn a profession or trade, just in case you can't make a living out of identifying millionaires.

You know exactly who wants to be millionaire. Your millionaire radar is so attuned that you sometimes carry several million dollars around just to make strangers’ dreams come true. Amazing!
