QUESTION 15 – FOR $1 MILLION

Commonly known by his nickname, what was the full name of ‘Banjo’ Paterson?

B: Andrew Barton

 

  1. Brian Abbott  

    Thanks for bloody nothing. You have just ruined our evening’s viewing of a show that has never had a million dollar winner. Just like telling the end of the story half way through the book. I bet Eddie could cut your throat for releasing that information.

    • Lyne Achman  

      You didnt have to read the answers

    • If you had been watching the TV adds, you would have known from them that he wins! It was pretty damned obvious!

  2. Sheridan Adams  

    I answered all correctly yay can I have a million? I obviously should be on the show!

  3. Chris  

    After all the promos and telling us someone won there was no point in even watching the show. Worst idea ever.

  4. Maren Matthew  

    I believe Lady Jane Grey died from complications after childbirth. She was not put to death. Ann Boleyn and Catherine Howard, were the only two who were executed. They were also related

    • jeanne taylor  

      Lady Jane Grey did not die in childbirth. Lady Jane Grey was part of an unsuccessful political plot to keep Mary 1 off the throne after Henry VIII died because she was Catholic and they wanted to keep the Church of England as the country’s religion. They knew Mary would persecute those who were not Catholic, which is what she did. She had Jane executed.

      • She was also known, if my memory is correct, as the nine day queen. It was a desperate attempt to prevent England from being under the Catholic yoke again. It failed! And “Bloody Mary” as Mary 1 was known came to the throne. She then stoked the “Fires of Smithfield” where many heretics were burned at the stake!

    • Roger  

      Lady Jane Grey was indeed executed by beheading.

  5. Amber  

    I think they were desperate for someone to win because these questions were fairly easy compared to some nights. Good luck to him. Lucky man.

  6. Rosemary Turner  

    Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. Mary Queen of Scots was not an English Royal. She was the daughter of James V of Scotland and Mary of Guise. A Scot!!!! How disappointing. Lady Jane Grey was executed, she was queen for nine days, Jane Seymour was the mother of Edward and died of childbirth complications.

  7. Wilma Boreham  

    It was one of the easiest question nights I have ever seen, I think they made the questions easy so that the ratings would go up.
