Contestants On Gameshow Fail To Answer Seriously Easy Question, Become Internet Celebrities

By : Sam Ridgway |



One pair on the Australian version of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire are the talk of the internet at the moment after failing to answer one rather obvious question.

Tania and Christina, two restaurateurs from Western Australia, chose to pass when Hotplate host Eddie McGuire asked them WHICH of the following was NOT a dinosaur: Brachiosaurus, stegosaurus, tyrannosaurus and thesaurus.

The mother and daughter duo had a seriously hard time working out the black sheep from the four possible answers and eventually chose to pass on the $200 question – much to the shock of both the host and the audience.

We won’t give them too much stick, though, as going on television and answering questions in front of millions of people is probably quite daunting.

But knowing that a thesaurus isn’t a dinosaur could have been a pretty good confidence boost.
