 Himself - Host (25 episodes, 2002-2007)


An Australian version of the popular quiz show. Contestants start off with easy questions, but as they move forward the questions get more and more challenging. To help them out, they are given "lifelines" that let them either eliminate two of the four possible answers, call a friend at home for help, or take a poll of the audience for what they think the right answer is.

14 May 1999 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This show is just very stupid. I hate it how Eddie Maguire always has got to ask them if they want to risk there $94,000, the best bit is the music, and seeing how dumb people are. There was this lady that didn't know what the biggest rainforest in the world was. She was going to say Amazon but then she said "Oh but the Amazon is a Jungle"!
