Who Wants 2B a Millionaire's Vocabulary Stumpers
Billkozy on 08/05/2008
|These are 10 Vocabulary-oriented questions that appeared on the hit game show "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?" Specifically, these are questions that defeated the contestants, questions that players either answered incorrectly or made the player decide to "walk away" with his/her winnings up to that point. Or in some cases, when the contestants reached the $25,000 level, they were able to "switch out" the question and avoid having to answer it altogether.|
Since the show offers only 4 multiple choices, I've added a fifth for our Sploofus format. Yikes! As though the questions weren't hard enough! I've had to rewrite the questions to abide by Sploofus rules regarding using previously published material, but the gist of the questions are very much the same as the show intended.
In addition to the question and possible answers, I'll include a little background about the situation the TV contestant found him or herself in when the question came up.
Good luck to you, and please rate the quiz afterward if that's okay. Okay and now, as Meredith Vieira would say..."Are you ready to play?..."
And please rate the quiz afterward if you get a chance. Best wishes,
