This is a list of women who have hosted their country's version of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?. While the majority of worldwide franchises are hosted by men, only 13 countries worldwide have had at least one female host.
Only one country has had a female host for the duration of its run; Canada in particular with Pamela Wallin hosting both episodes of its two-episode run.
One of the most famous examples of a female host is Meredith Vieira, who hosted Syndicated Millionaire in the USA from 2002 to 2013.
- Austria's Barbara Stöckl was the first ever female host, presenting the first incarnation of Die Millionenshow between 2000 and 2002. Armin Assinger took over after this.
- Portugal's Maria Elisa Domingues was the first female host to crown a millionaire when Ana Damásio won the jackpot of 50 million escudos in September 2000.
- Mariya Kiseleva became the the only person to host both The Weakest Link and Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? when she hosted the Russian Christmas Specials in place of Maxim Galkin. She was also the first host of Russian Weakest Link.
