I never wrapped up the Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? experience. Some of it is hidden in the comments, but here’s the whole story.
Second time I went there, I went alone. It was easier now, having been there once before. I came in later than the other competitors and immediately had to tell them everything about the show, give some tips and so on. Which suits me fine, being able to brag with my superior experience. They were suitably impressed with my situation.
Unfortunately, I blew it on the first question. It was about the first sentence of Gone With the Wind. And we were just talking about the last sentence with Johanna earlier that week… I used both the lifelines, but that didn’t help me much. It was about Scarlett O’Hara — was she pretty or not. I guessed she was — should’ve known better.
Well, it wasn’t a big disappointment, or at least I wasn’t going to take it as one. It stung a bit, sure, but then again: why mourn for something I never had? I’m 20 000 euros richer and I only have to pay about half of it back to the Finnish state (and even that money goes for useful purposes) so I can buy plenty of games…
It was a very interesting experience and definitely worth it.
