Re-run of a U of M grad on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire is at the million dollar question on Game Show Network!
Annnnddddd, he wins 1 million dollars!
Wow. Remember when that show was super popular?
Oh 2001, when tv was much simpler.
See: Patricia Heaton on Who Wants to be a Millionaire. She announces that she went to Ohio State (and Regis plays it up) right before she struggles with an incredibly easy question:
When I start teaching high school math I'm going to play this clip at the beginning of every year and say "This is why math is important. So you don't look like the biggest tool in the world"
What happened, did he or she get the million dollar question?
The heck with the Million. " I want to be a billionaire so freakin' bad".
He was a buddy of a friend of mine who was a GA in South Quad - Thronson. This was the second ever episode of the show and the first winner. He was a pretty okay guy as well. Not some super nerdy douche.
