我一直在找任何愚蠢的借口去旅行。And a couple of years ago,I had a crazy idea that might let me travel permanently until the day I die!我本来打算得到一百万美元,不管怎样!All ethical of course!

I haven't had the nerve to hold up a bank or set up my own scam,但在2012,I applied online to have a crack at the Australian version of ‘百万富翁‘,它被称为“百万富翁的热门座位”或“普通老座位”热椅‘.

百万富翁‘ is one of the world's most popular syndicated game shows of all time.我认为有一种不可抗拒的需要,那就是看着人们在家里的沙发上回答一个你知道的问题,对着屏幕大叫!它出现在无数的国家,而发明这个概念的人现在可能已经是亿万富翁了!

当你看节目的时候,do you think ‘that's piss easy,I would have got that answer no worries at all?' Well believe me,sitting in the chair is way harder than it looks! The questions that appear easy when you're watching the show on television in the comfort of your own home,突然出现了困难。你坐在一张不舒服的椅子上,两腿悬在椅子边上,你可以看到时钟在滴答作响,plus the host and the audience all at once and you have to come up with an answer within 30 seconds!

我已经等了两年多了,才有机会坐上最热的位置,面对艾迪·麦奎尔,谁是这个节目的主持人,最初预定了20集,but it's been so popular that it has just passed 1000 episodes.

热椅is a bit different to the original Who Wants To Be A Millionaire format,一些参赛者花了大约一个小时的时间,才决定用答案锁定一个问题。亚博app官方下载你可以继续看下一个问题,或者拿着钱跑。

热座椅速度更快,六个人试图赢得百万。如果有人通过或填了一个问题,你会坐在座位上。每个错误的答案,那个人被淘汰了,奖金水平下降了。This is a half hour version of the show that is a lead in to the 6 pm news bulletin.

So in a shameless attempt to plug myself and my silly website on Australian national television, I managed to score my Hot Seat episode in early May 2014.

My first thoughts were that once I landed in the seat,I was going to have a crack at answering all of the questions.However,when I turned up to the Channel 9 Studios,我意识到自己是我节目中第一个参赛的选手。哦,废话。这意味着我必须连续正确回答15个问题,我可能会提出一个关于卡戴珊人的问题,我不得不盲目猜测——而且很可能会亚博app官方下载惨遭失败!

So what I did,我回答了前四个问题,然后,我又错过了我知道的第五个,这样我就可以给自己一个最好的机会,让自己回到热门的座位上,再赚点钱,而其他人则可以回答这个蹩脚的流行文化问题。这是正确的策略,because a pop culture question I wasn't sure 亚博app官方下载about came on a couple of questions later after I had passed.

又有几个人答错了问题,I was back in the Hot Seat,以10万美元的价格玩。一点也不差,that should last me a little while!

谁想成为百万富翁?我愿意!马上!

Anyway,when I landed back in the Hot Seat,and with only a couple of questions to go,I scored this question – How many chance panels are there on a standard United Kingdom Monopoly Board?

Anyway,here is an edited version of the show where I make a goose of myself on National TV so you can see how I went!

也,感谢澳大利亚第九频道允许我使用这段视频。

Here it is!

If you want to see how many Chance panels on a monopoly board,here they are – I couldn't resist Googling the image!

对,there are three.家伙。

Anyway,whilst it was a nerve wracking experience sitting in the Hot Seat,我玩得很开心。It's not something that you do every day!如果你真的上了节目,don't take it too seriously.你就是不知道会发生什么!And a lady who really needed the money won $20,000 in the end and so I was happy that went to someone who could do with the cash!

But it also shows how much just plain old luck can be a factor.Later on,there was a guy on two shows after me (there are 6 shows filmed in a day) who blindly guessed 6 questions in a row and he won $100,000.他甚至承认自己比上课更放荡,but that's the way it goes.

Funnily enough,人们用赢的钱做什么最流行的答案之一是旅游。And good luck to anyone who wins enough to fulfill your travel dreams.

如果你想试一试的话,可以给你一些热的座椅提示!

If for some reason you want to try out for the show,here are some ideas that I think will help you out:

  • 这是一个电视节目-你是独一无二的,就像其他人一样。一定要想出一些关于你生活的有趣的和“外面”的故事,亚博app官方下载they will be noticed!Over 40,000 people have auditioned for Hot Seat – only 6,000 people have actually made it to the show,so if you appear on TV,that's an achievement in itself!
  • 如果你被邀请试镜,see if you can go on a night when a big sporting event is on – because you'll have a much higher chance of being chosen to be included on the Hot Seat Register as there are usually a lot of no shows!
  • 一旦你通过回答一些问题来通过试镜,你需要一个视频试镜。你只管往下看,做你自己!
  • If you get called up to appear on the show,make sure you bring a supporter that won't drag you out to get drunk and fall down the night before the show!Having said that,if you're a media tart and want to gain some viral views by spewing in the Hot Seat,去你的生活吧!
  • 当你和假主持人一起排练节目时,要沉浸在对布景的感觉中。Imagine people in the audience as well!
  • 一旦真正的表演发生,仔细检查每个答案,然后大声思考,eliminating obvious wrong answers if you know them
  • 如果你知道这个问题,回答这个问题!
  • 别太当真了!
  • 如果你对一个会给你钱的问题大发雷霆,don't think that you ‘lost' the money.你就是没赢!
  • 快点!You'll never appear on the show again!

你走吧!我想我已经把“出现在一个游戏秀上”从我的愚蠢的清单上划掉了!

But if you're filthy rich and reading this and feel sorry for me,请随意把一大笔钱捐给我的银行帐户!It will be most appreciated!P

Anyway,回到努力使自己成为一个富有的旅游博客!亚博客户端下载
