I’ve been trying to become a millionaire by playing lotto, entering contests, or just hoping someone leaves it to me in their will but nothing so far. I’ve always dreamed of bring on a game show since I seem to know which ones I’m good at but I don’t have time or money to travel to Los Angeles where all the good ones are until recently when I discovered “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire” was coming to Harlem. I almost fell out of my chair. I was on Facebook and saw a post and immediately called even though it was after 9 p.m I was going to leave a voicemail but someone was still in the office and his name was Daniel. He took all of my info and I told him I was a blogger and that this is a dream come true not to just be in the audience but to audition to be a contestant and meet Cedric the Entertainer who would be the host.

Our tickets was for September 4th at 9 a.m and I took my son, my sister, and my cousin along. I met Daniel in person that morning and he was very nice in person and gave us a warm welcome and great seats. We stayed for 3 tapings and departed about 12 p.m. It was a long morning but we had fun and Cedric was hilarious. There was a warm up comedian to keep the audience awake, and even though food wasn’t provided you can bring your own snacks which I suggest highly being that you’re there 3 hours. I came prepared.

You have an option if you want to take the 30 question multiple choice test. I’m not going to lie it was kind of hard. I did not pass the test this time but they welcome you back to keep taking it. It’s funny I knew the answers when they were taping but on the test it’s a little harder. I will go back again and keep trying. My family and I had fun. I was able to get a few pictures inside the studio.

I was not compensated for this post. Tickets are free and these are my opinions.
If you would like to attend tapings you can call for tickets at (212)456-1494 or go on the website at http://www.millionairetv.com
The address is 105 East 106th street New York, NY 10029 btwn Park & Lexington Avenue.

    I had no idea that this game was even still in existence. I watched when it first came out on TV.

      Me either. After Regis and Meredith hosted it I thought it was over.

    Looks like you had a blast. Like others I thought the show was over.

    I have always said that I’d lose so badly on these shows….funny how I can yell at the TV at home and be clueless in real life

      Think positive. You never know what could happen.
