Who Wants to Be a Millionaire's Tournament of Ten wrapped up on November 20, 2009, with the highest seeded contestant, Jehan Shamsid-Deen. Jehan came into the tournament with many fans after banking $250,000 in her original appearance on the show, in 2 minutes, 9 seconds. She is a non-profit program director from Concord, NC.
In the category "Extremely Rare," her million dollar question was:
A rare example of a word that rhymes with "orange," the Blorenge is a what?
A: River in Ireland B: Forest in Scotland C: Mountain in Wales D: Desert in Australia
The correct answer is C, a mountain in Wales (and incidentally, the only answer through the course of the tournament that yours truly knew with absolute certainty). Jehan knew that the Blorenge was in Great Britain, and was leaning heavily towards the correct answer. However, with a quarter of a million dollars at stake, she decided to walk away.
Sam Murray, the eighth seed and sole contestant to correctly answer his million dollar question, won the Tournament of Ten.
