Who Wants To Be A Millionaire Wiki
Advertisement


Haluatko miljonääriksi? (English: Do you want to become a millionaire?) is the Finnish version of the game show Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?. The show was first broadcast on 12 November, 1999 on Nelonen ("4") until 2005, hosted by Lasse Lehtinen. Ville Klinga took over hosting duties when the show moved to MTV3 that year, where it stayed until 2007. It was revived in 2016 on Nelonen, this time hosted by Jaajo Linnonmaa. This version is broadcast in the Finnish language.

No one has ever won the top prize in this version. The biggest win was in 2002, when 18-year-old student Markku Rikola answered thirteen questions correctly and won €70,000 when the top prize in the money tree was €200,000.

Lifelines

There are three lifelines (oljenkorsi in Finnish) available to all contestants:

  • 50/50: The computer eliminates two incorrect answers, leaving the correct answer and the one remaining incorrect answer..
  • Kilauta kaverille (Phone-a-Friend): The contestant calls one of up to three friends who provided their phone numbers prior to broadcast. The contestant has 30 seconds to read the question and answer choices to the friend who then has the remaining time to offer input.
  • Kysy yleisöltä (Ask Three of the Audience, 2016-): When used, audience members who think they know the answer stand up, and the contestant must pick three of them by looks only, and then discuss with them about the question (though the contestant is not necessarily required to go with their advice). If the contestant chooses the suggested answer and it proves to be correct, each audience member who got it right will receive a gift card courtesy of Scandic Hotels (in the 2016 spring season) or a €99 gift card of the telecommunications company DNA (in the 2016 autumn season).

Former Lifelines

  • Kysy katsomolta (Ask the Audience, 1999–2007): Audience members use touch pads to designate what they believe the correct answer to be. The audience choosing each specific option is displayed to the contestant.

Trivia

  • The translated name for Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? in Finnish is "Kuka halua olla miljonääri?". The name "Haluatko miljonääriksi?" is because, aside from "Haluatko" translating to "Do you want to", the conjugated ending of the word "miljonääriksi" is what is referred to in linguistics as a "translative" change, suggesting that the change that has occurred in the word represents a very big change.
  • Number of contestants: almost 800 (over 200 of them get to the Hot Seat) (as of 13 December, 2003)
  • Total winnings: over 2 million euros (as of 13 December 2003)
  • On 15 November, 2002 the 100th episode was aired.
  • The biggest winning in the game was won by Markku Rikola (broadcast on October 12, 2002), which reached the 14th question and won €70,000 when the main prize was €200,000. The biggest prize in 350,000 mk was taken by Jyrki Pitkäjärvi November 10, 2000), as well as 250,000 mk were won by Anne Saari and Timo Toivonen (broadcasts on April 23 and 28, 2000) with the main prize of 1,000,000 mk.
  • In the revived version, three players, Janica Halminen (aired on October 29, 2016), Antti Ahonen (aired on April 22, 2017), and Riina Solja (aired on May 26, 2018), were able to reach 14 questions worth €200,000, winning €60,000, double the David Viljanen record (aired on February 13, 2016), who was able to reach the 13th question worth €60,000, having left from €30,000. Also this amount has become the largest for the last 14 years. The smallest win that the player has taken is only €500.
  • From 1999 until 2003, and again from 2006 until 2007, the show's theme tune removed the familiar ending sequence, merging it with the host entrance music. It no longer does this from the 2016 revival.
  • The tallest participant in the Finnish version is Ville Karpio from the city of Helsinki, whose length was 206 centimeters.
  • Shooting of the revived version takes place in 2016-2017 in Herttoniemi, a suburb of Helsinki.
  • In the release of March 11, 2017, Haluatko miljonääriksi had a Fastest Finger First failure, when none of the six contestants answered it correctly.
