One of my favorite T.V. shows is called, Who wants to Be a Millionaire. It is a really great show. It is hosted by Regis Philbin who is a highly energized, cool, and funny man. The show was created by Michael Davies, who also created the show called Who’s Line is It Anyway? This show is my favorite because it is vicarious, the host is real fun, and it is a good learning experience. To play the Who Wants to Be a Millionaire game you must answer the questions correctly and every time you answer correctly you move up and collect more money. For example, the first question is worth $100 dollars and you work your way up to a million. You are allowed a 50/50 where the computer takes away two wrong answers and leaves one correct one and one incorrect one. You are also allowed to phone a friend and ask the audience, but you are only allowed to use these three things once. They are called lifelines. Also, the person who gets to be chosen must get the faster finger, which is usually a question to put something in order in the fasted time. Then, the person goes to the “hot seat”.
Many game shows are vicarious. Who Wants to Be a Millionaire is a show that puts you in the hot seat. It makes you feel like you are going to win the million dollars. Most of the people who watch it are playing and answering with the person in the hot seat. There was this one time I was watching and the man in the hot seat was going for a million dollars and my family and I were playing along with him and we were so excited to see him go for it and I knew the answer to the question. I was screaming, “The answer is C! The answer is C!” Of course the man couldn’t hear me but I was still screaming it at the television. It made me feel like I was right there in that hot seat.
... , “Love is the answer to the question of suffering.” Certainly, John Paul is also a victim ... entitled “Have No Fear,” the late pope beautifully answered this universal human question with so much affirmation and optimism. According to him ... Love is the answer to the question of suffering All around us, people are in pain. Emotional, ...
It is a great learning experience for many people. The questions consist of very general information. This information contains facts good for everybody to know. No one knows everything. For example, one show I was watching this woman was in the hot seat and she was given all these hard questions but they were only hard to me. She knew almost every one. While I was watching I was also learning all these new facts about all different subjects. I didn’t know any, maybe just the first one.
Regis Philbin is a great host. He is perfect as host of this show because he is funny, very dramatic, and has a great personality. Regis makes the whole show; if there were another host it wouldn’t be the same. On one show, there was a man answering a question and he was real serious. The man had thought it out for a good ten minutes and said the answer. All of a sudden Regis said something so hysterically funny I couldn’t stop laughing throughout the whole show. It was so funny that the audience and the man in the hot seat couldn’t stop laughing either.
I really enjoy watching this show. It entertains me to the fullest. This game show is a wonderful show and I recommend it to anyone who likes winning money, knows a lot of useless facts, and is willing to learn more.
