Seriously - how could a Millionaire Hot Seat contestant get this question wrong?




The very first question on Channel Nine’s Millionaire Hot Seat is always an easy one.

The question was: “Which of these is not a piece of jewellery commonly worn to symbolise a relationship between two people?”

The funny (and obviously correct) answer was ‘Burger Ring’.

Whitney did not select Burger Ring. And she did not win $100.

“Oh my god Eddie, that is the most embarrassing thing that’s ever happened to me.”

Um, yeah…



The moment will haunt her forever.
