We here at JGT Enterprises want to send a shout out to our good buddy and quizzo part timer Sam Murray, who won the million dollars today on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire. Sam won the money because while the other contestants also had brains, Sam was the only one who had any guts, and took his chances to win the Million.
The top 10 contestants who had answered the most questions right in the fastest time within the first weeks of the season were placed into contention to win the million dollars.
Each day in the tournament, one contestant would return to be asked one more question for a million dollars. Answer it correctly, you’re a millionaire. Answer it incorrectly, you would most likely lose thousands.
While Sam went for the gusto, the rest of the contestants were spineless cowards. Sam got his question right, then watched as the other contestants got an opportunity to risk a little to win a lot. (Most came in having won $50,000, and if they missed the question, they would go back to $25,000.)
So Sam became the tournament leader and with a surprise visit from his son Tim, who came all the way from Wisconsin, he sat in the stands for the next six episodes as he watched contestant after contestant be asked the million dollar question, and each decided to walk away without risking their hard earned money. By the way, most of those contestants guessed the right choices, but did not make it their final answers, deciding to walk away instead.
The question Sam answered correctly to win the Million?
