‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?’ Contestant Asked “Hardest Question Ever”, Still Manages To Get It Right

Ever have a sneaking suspicion that the questions on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? get considerably harder the higher the prize pool gets? Well, look no further than a recent episode of the show in the UK for proof.

Contestant Glen Bunn appeared on the show and had amassed a kitty of £32,000 ($A60,500) when he had the chance to double it to £64,000 ($A121,000) when posed a question so difficult people are calling it the “hardest question ever” in game show history.

Presenter Jeremy Clarkson asked: “From the 2000 awards ceremony onwards, the Best Actress Oscar has never been won by a woman whose surname begins with which one of these letters?”

The four multiple choice options were: “G”, “K”, “M”, and “W”.

That meant Bunn had to process the names of the Best Actress Oscar winners over the past 21 years to win the cash.

Thankfully, justice prevailed and Bunn managed to guess the correct answer – which was “G”.

Clarkson said: “What can you say? You just won £32,000 on a guess. A pure stab in the dark. God that’s great isn’t it?”

Not that everyone was impressed with the difficulty of the question in the first place. Viewers taking to social media to register their anger.
