“Who Wants To Be A Millionaire” began broadcasting in the UK on ITV on September 4, 1998, and immediately the show became a phenomenon – first locally, and a little later on a global scale. Americans immediately “took the bait” and the very next year, on August 16, 1999, ABC bought the rights to the show and broadcast the first episode.
In Bulgaria, the game started in 2001, and initially we did not have a suitable studio and used that in neighboring Romania. In our country it is called “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire”. “Become Rich” and for its 22 years of existence, it has been on the airwaves – initially on Nova TV, where Niki Kanchev is the host, and later, after a years’ break, it returned with a new host, Mihail Bilalov, first on BNT, and currently on bTV.
No one in Bulgaria has yet managed to win the grand prize, although recently there were false reports that retired journalist Lyubomir Lazarov was doing so. He actually opened a question for 100,000 BGNwhich, however, turned out to be difficult for him and Lazarov gave up, taking the great sum of BGN 50,000.

Let’s recall what the $1 million questions are for the last 7 contestants who won the big prize in “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire” in the United States of America and the United Kingdom.
1. Which privateer died fighting off the coast of present-day North Carolina in 1718?
That’s the question with which Donald Fear becomes the UK’s sixth millionaire in Who Wants To Be A Millionaire in 2020. The history and politics teacher answered all 15 questions correctly, also impressing by becoming the first player to win using just one joker.
The correct answer to his last question is Blackbeard. After his success, Donald Fear says that he does not consider rejecting the teaching profession, and with part of the profit he intends to buy a camper and travel. He wants to give the rest of the money to his family.
2. Who was the first president to have electricity in the White House, even though he and his spouse never touched a light switch for fear of electrocution?
This $1 million question was asked on November 29, 2020 in the United States of America. It is answered by David Chang, who is a famous traveling chef. He gives the correct answer, namely – Benjamin Harrison. He shares the award with the employees in his restaurants.
The question of BGN 30,000 to the champion participant outraged Facebook – it was very easy
3. Which boxer was famous for striking the gong at the opening of the films of J. Arthur Rank?
The correct answer comes from the mouth of Ingram Wilcox – a Brit whose experience in quizzing shared the floor during his joining Who Wants To Be A Millionaire. On 23 September 2006, he became the fifth person in the UK to win the huge prize.
Up to the sum of £32,000 he used all his jokers, but with the help of his knowledge he gave the correct answer to the last question – Billy Wells.
4. Which of the following is not part of the American “Triple Crown” of horse racing?
In April 2004, Irishman Pat Gibson, who has also gained experience in many shows, became the fourth person to win the huge prize in the form of England. The impressive thing about his game is that until the last question he has two of his jokers – something that no one before him has done. Gibson first used 50:50 and later called a friend to confirm that the correct answer was the Arlington Million.
5. Who did the artist Grant Wood use as the model for the farmer in his famous painting “American Gothic”?
American Nancy Christie made her way to winning one million dollars on May 9, 2003, when she answered this question correctly. The teacher from Oklahoma is the first woman from the United States of America to reach the end of the game by giving the correct answer to the question – her dentist.
Here is the BGN 100,000 question, which was opened for the third time in the history of “Get Rich” in Bulgaria
6. The United States icon “Uncle Sam” was based on Samuel Whisson, who worked during the War of 1812 as what?
The correct answer to this question is: meat controller. It was given by the American Kevin Smith on February 18, 2003 and thus took the huge premium of one million dollars.
7. During World War II, United States soldiers used the first commercial aerosol cans to store what?
On September 7, 2001, the American Ed Toutant was invited for the second time to sit on the throne of wealth. The reason: the $16,000 question he answered incorrectly in his January 31st game of that year turned out to have an inaccuracy. The second time the man does not miss his chance and grabs the prize by giving the correct answer to the last question – insecticide.
