on 30 2004 somewhat less graciously at the same hurdle who was fastest Charles Ingram in 3 finally after two failed attempts Charles Ingram makes it to the hot seat the most infamous episode of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire is about to begin I really warm to it yeah he had this terrible peer pressure in that his brother-in-law and his wife both had 132 thousand pounds they were both quite sort of they seem to be quite obsessed with the show and getting on it and doing well they both had got on and done well I mean she went away very disappointed with thirty two thousand five so I remember talking to her in the bar afterwards and I said great congratulate she's sitting there only 32 and I said to her it's a huge amount of money she went yes but I should have done more I should have beaten my brother and all this 15 questions three lifelines is the or 15 threat Darcy wins 1 million pounds let's play Who Wants to Be a Millionaire okay Charles question number one for 100 pounds who it is on which of these would you air laundry clothes dog horse clothes rabbit clothes pink that's their clothes horse it's throw down so you got 100 pounds the first few questions are easy enough for the nature that's a word okay you got a hundred pounds question number two to 200 pounds seriously what name is given to a person who is against increasing the powers of the European Union you're a skeptic Eurostar Eurotrash Eurovision euro skeptic right answer to under pan okay number three is worth 300 pounds here it comes what is butterscotch your bread pavement game a garden flower brittle toffee but some staff are concerned as soon as the major takes the hot seat is right after Catriona past me Diana Ingram's younger brother Marcus Powell is also at the studio just after recording has started probably about 15 20 minutes into it really and he was outside the studio and his mobile phone which mobile phones aren't allowed sort of in the studio area so I went up to the production office where I'm full Chris Burke was just approached him and said scuse me saying I can't have you in and out of the studio using the phone if you want to make a phone quiet and get someone to escort you off site and you can make as many phone calls as you wish or would you please get back in the studio take your seat when I went back downstairs about 10-15 minutes later he was back outside on his mobile again and as soon as he saw me he went straight back in the studio at which point I asked one of our security guards to keep an eye on him for the rest of the recording and it's the best my knowledge that's that's exactly what he did police believe for vibrating phone pages could have signaled the right answer I think that the the question and the options would have been transmitted by Marcus Powell's open mobile phone within the VIP area I believe that the person on the other end with access to research material could then signal the wearer of those pages with the correct answer a B C or D depending on what part of the body the page was secreted and then that person clear the signal Charles Ingram or indeed Charles Ingram may have been wearing the pages himself Marcus Powell's never been charged with any offense so for now Charles Ingram's on his own and the 500 pound questions one he's bound to get right question before then for 500 quid no problem so far here it is which of these is the nickname for a famous Scottish army originally a wrong bough seem to get it wrong though Charles major which of these is the nickname for a famous Scottish army regiment black cat that you're gonna know this Black Widow Black Sea black what Blackwatch Chris Black Widow know who definitely in like cats it's right out so you got five hundred pounds question fives the last time the major can go home with nothing the Normans who invaded and conquered England in 1066 spoke which languages German Norwegian French Danish norms but he's no intention of leaving empty-handed now I'll go with French I love ya final answer so right house you got a thousand on the next question he's struggling and there's no one to help too much knowledge remember the family Otto Charles

This always makes me think of that Monk episode where the host conspires with a contestant for winning multiple games in a row and they split the cash. The studio suspects the contestant of cheating but they cannot figure out how. I kinda told that story backwards but whatever.

Turns out the host would hold the quiz card by one of four corners, each corner representing the correct answer (top left A, top right B, etc)

Press Your Luck. The Story Of: The Whammy Slayer

An Ohio native, Michael Larson does something that nobody had done before and nobody would ever do again. This is the story about how one man robbed a game show of $110,237 in the span of 42 minutes.

The narrator sucks but this is a great story of a man who gamed the game show.

Just watch one of these instead.

Possible movie based on his life?

So I painfully watched several parts of this investigation.

Here is the TLDR another future contestant who was alot smarter than him coughed everytime the contestant said the right answer. It was hard to hear during the live recording, but when they isolated the sound you can clearly hear the cough everytime.

These days, his wife makes jewelery and they travel around to craft fairs and markets selling them. I work in Guildford and they occasionally have a stall at the market in the High Street.

How does an 8 minute portion that cuts off before any of the good parts get upvoted to the front page? Did any of you fools even click the link to watch the video? Did the OP even watch the video???
