So we have all been there. You are sitting there, watching Chris Tarrant (or another host if you are abroad) taking does the faster finger round and the easy initial questions start. A ridiculously easy question that everyone knows the answer to pops up on the screen. You presume that the trivia quiz show contestant knows the answer, but no they are completely stumped on this question that your five year old answered in two seconds. Cue shouting at the TV and several comments about how stupid the contestants are. You may think that sounds a bit harsh, but when you see some of the examples below, you will be shocked that this contestant ever got on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.
Kathy Evan from Idaho was on her first question on the US version of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.
The question was: ‘Which of the following is the largest?’
A) A Peanut
B) An Elephant
C) The Moon
D) Hey, who you calling large?
After some deliberation the mother decided that this question was far too hard saying , ‘Hmm, oh boy, that’s a toughie’.
Evans then carried on deliberating what possibly could be trivia quiz show's easiest question ever. She then did a 50/50 and wasn't happy with this and decided to phone a friend. After arguing with her friend Betsy, who advised her to pick The Moon, the contestant decided to ask the audience saying:
‘I just don’t know if I can trust Betsy. She’s not all that bright. So I think I’d like to ask the audience,’
Evans now seemed determined not to win, ignoring the 98% of the audience that advised her to pick The Moon. Saying she would 'go with her gut' she then picked 'B) An Elephant', making her answer the worst blunder on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.
