Joonas Malinen, a 23-year-old student from Kuopio, was a contestant on the 2016 spring season of the Finnish version of the show on March 19 and 26, 2016. He walked away with €10,000, having made a free but an incorrect guess in the eleventh question.

On March 26, 2016, some people noted in Twitter that there was coughing heard in the audience during the gameplay of Joonas. The executive producer of the Finnish version of the show, Jukka Saharinen, told the papers that people often cough in the audience, but the coughing was not systematic in this case.

His run was shot in the January of 2016.
