There’s nothing quite like a primetime special episode to hint that the ultimate prize miiiight just go off on Millionaire Hot Seat.

Over the past 21 years, a total of $86,098,000 has been won on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire and Millionaire Hot Seat, with only eight ever making it to the million-dollar question.

Tonight, if this lucky contestant goes all the way to win the million bucks, they’ll be the second to ever do so.

“What an absolute highlight it is to get to the million-dollar question – you need so much to go right,” host Eddie McGuire said.

Millionaire Hot Seat kicks off today, November 25 at 7.30pm on Channel 9 and 9NOW.
