Hello, everybody. Welcome
to the Millionaire Hot Seat tonight.

Let's get ready to rumble
because I've got $1 million

and I want to give it away right now.

Come on, gang, let's go!

Yes, tonight's the night.

Want to give away a whole lot
of money tonight.

15 questions will get you $1,000.

But that also gives you the chance
to buy a lifeline

to get $1 million
once we get to the hot seat.

That's the name of the game, gang.

We want you to make as much money
as you possibly can.

You ready to go?

Alright, let's meet our contestants
tonight, and they are:

In seat number one,
we have Amy Tanner.

Considers herself the unsung hero
of her family.

She saved her sister three times.

There you go.

If you live in Leeming, WA,

you'll be cheering
for Rosemary Hillson

because she wants to give you money
if she wins it.

At 16, Andrew Hedstrom
shaved his head

and sold his hair
to a wig-maker to make cash.


Amanda Westwood
rented a Fiat in Italy

and backed it into someone

who she thought
might've been in the Mafia.

Isaac Blencowe's school tie
was choking him so much

that the teacher had to cut it off
with a Stanley knife.

And Peter Scarth caught
two marlins fishing.

He's never even owned a fishing rod.

There you go.


Let's get cracking right now.

Fastest finger first!



Alright, 15 questions
coming your way.

You have to get them right.
You have to be the fastest.

If you're able to do that,
I'll give you $1,000

which you can cash in for lifelines

once we hit the hot seat
a little bit later in the show.

Good luck, everybody. Heads down.

Here comes question number one.
