Behind the Scenes of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire

#1 Post by lynnqyu » Fri May 25, 2018 11:56 am

Hey friends! I recently appeared on Who Wants To Be a Millionaire and wrote about my experience in a tell-all here: https://medium.com/@lynnqyu/behind-the- ... 1fe1ff0c5a

I figured some of the folks who may be auditioning for the show, about to appear on this season, or just curious as to some of the behind-the-scenes logistics of the show may be interested. Also, I owe a sincere debt of gratitude to the people who run this site — I systematically went through past transcripts of shows during my study, and this site was singlehandedly my greatest resource. So thank you, thank you, thank you! Cheers and good luck to all future contestants!

Great article! I finished reading it about five minutes before you posted this thread and put a link in your transcript.
