Hello – just a quick update today. I’ve now completed Part One of my interview with one of Australia’s very, VERY few Who Wants To Be A Millionaire millionaires, Mr Martin Flood.
It was a fascinating and wide-ranging discussion, going all the way from the first time he saw the Australian version of the show… through all his preparations, the recording experience itself, right up to the point where he accepted the cheque with this written on it:
$1,000,000.00 ONE MILLION DOLLARS
Our chat contained loads of tips and hints that’ll be useful for any aspiring Millionaire contestants (wherever they may be!) – so once I’ve transcribed and edited the interview, I’ll be sure to get all that info up here on the site as soon as possible.
In the meantime, I’ve booked in a second interview with Marty, in which we’ll discuss the various facets of his life since The Big Win. We’ll talk about how it changed his life, and what happened next in his incredible story, including two more brushes with game shows – both in front of and behind the camera – which will make fascinating reading for any game show aficionados.
So, are there any questions you’d like me to ask Marty in the next part of the interview?
What would you like to know about what happens to someone, after they’ve won a million dollars on TV?
If you ask me, I’ll ask him!
