Ask the Expert was a lifeline introduced to Seasons 7 and 8 of the U.S. version of Millionaire. It was a modified version of the Three Wise Men lifeline.


  • In 2008, contestants can ask the expert on a question, but they're not allowed to use it until they correctly answer the fifth question. After they decided to remove the Phone-a-Friend lifeline, this lifeline is now available for all 15 questions.
  • This lifeline did not appear in the video game Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? (Nintendo Wii).
