Hit or Miss

More Millionaire

Bertie watched Millionaire again in my room tonight and again the contestants were a bunch of tools.  This one guy, Nathan, seemed to be pretty nice at first.  He had a nice looking fiance.  He didn’t make inane chatter.  Then after the commercial, he pulled out a little stuffed monkey and made it talk with a high pitched voice.  Bertie and I were not sorry to see him lose shortly thereafter.

I’m beginning to wonder about product placement in the show – could the Australian Tourism Board have paid the show in order for Australia to appear as the correct answer for two different questions in the span of about 20 minutes?  Or do they just have lazy writers?
