Nine Revamps Hot Seat

nNine has announced that Hot Seat will undergo a revamp when new episodes kick off later this month.

In an  an all-new  one hour format will start with contestants going head-to-head in a rapid-fire battle of Fastest Finger First.

All six contestants will face the same 15 questions, with the fastest and most accurate winning a cash prize at the half-way mark of the program.

Then the excitement will continue in the familiar Millionaire Hot Seat format that has been a favourite in Australian living rooms for eight years – before going into overdrive with one further twist.

When the winner of Fastest Finger First makes it to the Hot Seat, he or she will have the option of keeping their cash prize or swapping it for one of three Lifelines:

·         50/50 – Two incorrect answers will be removed.

·         Switch – The question will be substituted for a new one.

·         Ask-a-Friend – The contestant can ask a friend in the audience for help.

Since it premiered on April 20, 2009, Millionaire Hot Seat has changed countless lives and given away a total of $39,014,000.

HOT SEAT SUPER GAME Starts Monday, January 23, at 5.00pm on Nine
