Martin Flood (born July 4, 1964), a 41-year-old I.T. analyst from New South Wales, became the second Australian to win a top prize of $1,000,000 on 14 November 2005 when he answered 15 questions correctly, nearly a month after Rob "Coach" Fulton became the first. He got to the final question with one lifeline left, which was '50:50'. He used it just to be sure he would win a million.

Allegations of cheating marred his win, but he was later acquitted.

Winning one million dollars allowed Martin to quit his job. He was also a contestant in The Master and Australia's Brainiest Quizmaster.
