You can qualify to be a contestant on the 10th anniversary edition of ABC's “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?”
The show will run on WTOK for 11 nights Aug. 9-23, Sundays-Thursdays, 7-8 p.m.
There are multiple ways to become a contestant on “Millionaire,” including the original phone game that was used when the show premiered in 1999, and video submissions, an all-new method that will enable people to upload videos of themselves directly to the show producers.
Would-be contestants can use more than one method to try to get on the show but will only be selected one time. No former “Hot Seat” players are eligible, and you must be at least 18 years old, a legal U.S. resident and meet all eligibility requirements.
THE PHONE GAME
Phone lines are open for 10 contest days from 7 p.m. ET to 3 a.m. ET, until July 16th. Call the 800 number and attempt to answer general knowledge questions by putting the 4 answer choices in correct order. People who correctly answer all 5 questions will select one of the 6 available tape dates. A random drawing will be held from among all the people who selected the same tape date to receive an eligibility call to qualify to become a finalist on the program. If a person meets all eligibility requirements they will be flown to New York City with a companion for the opportunity for the chance to play in the hot seat.
Call Limit: One call per person per contest day.
