If you watched last night’s Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, you’ll definitely remember this contestant.
Twitter and Facebook went wild on Saturday night (July 24), branding one contestant the ‘worst contestant ever’ as he used not one but two lifelines in the first two questions.
The contestant was Connor Kim, a legal assistant from Westminster, and he had both presenter Jeremy Clarkson himself and the viewers rolling.
The first question was “Which Keith found fame as a member of the Rolling Stones?”, and Connor was dumbfounded by two choices: Keith Richards and Keith Chegwin (the TV presenter).

The contestant said: “I mean, I can rule out two of them. This isn’t really my music, sort of, zone.”
Jeremy remarked: “I don’t think this is breaking any rules to tell you this… But one of those is hilariously wrong.”
When Connor revealed he was going to use his first lifeline to ask Jeremy himself to answer the question, the audience erupted into laughter.

Jeremy said: “I can hardly believe I’m being paid to give you this answer, but here’s what I think. It SO isn’t Keith Chegwin.”
Connor concluded: “I’m going to look like an idiot on TV.”
The next question was “Which of these phrases is an old-fashioned polite way of going to the toilet?”
Stuck between “spending a penny” and “letting off steam”, the contestant said: “Ah, for God’s sake. It’s happening again isn’t it.
“Wow, I really am stupid aren’t I.”
And the crowds couldn’t believe it when he used up his next lifeline for the question – ‘50/50’.
Jeremy reassured him: “Look at it this way. A lot of contestants come on this show, and without wishing to be rude, people forget about them quite quickly.
“You’ll be remembered for many, many years.”
