Could you answer these questions for $1 million?


AUSTRALIA has a new millionaire.
Tonight at 5.30pm on Channel Nine’s Hot Seat, 67-year-old Edwin Daly wins the major prize for the first time in the show’s history.
The retiree from Mt Barker in South Australia landed in the Hot Seat for question seven and answered the next nine questions correctly to walk away with the million-dollar prize.
Still on a high from the episode which was filmed two weeks ago, Mr Daly told news.com.au that despite his win he doesn’t consider himself as a “smart guy”.
“I just have a velcro brain,” he said.
“My daughter often has said to me that I have a head full of useless information, but it turned out to be quite useful this time.”
So what does he plan to do with his $1 million?
“We’ve got a lot of ideas,” he said.
“We are committed Christians ... so the first 10 per cent will go to God’s work. We’ll hopefully do something to help out our kids but that will happen after we’ve seen a financial adviser.”
If you’re wondering if you would have been able to answer the Hot Seat questions correctly, well, it’s time to put yourself to the test.
