Lifelines Edit

  • Pass: Normally the only lifeline available on Hot Seat, this lifeline allows you to skip the question and join the back of the contestant cue. The following player will not be able to pass the same question.
  • Switch the Question: This lifeline could only be used on the day's final question. The question would be swapped, but the contestant would stay the same. It was dropped on May 8, 2015. Since 2017, this lifeline is now available for all questions, but only for the contestant who correctly answered the most questions in the fastest time in Fastest Finger First. It's only used in the Australian version of the format.
  • Ask A Friend: Similar to Plus One, the contestant would be allowed to use the help of a friend in the audience. It was dropped on May 8, 2015. Since 2017, this lifeline is now available for all questions, but only for the contestant who correctly answered the most questions in the fastest time in Fastest Finger First.
  • 50:50: This lifeline could take away two wrong answers on a question. This lifeline is available for all questions, but only for the contestant who correctly answered the most questions in the fastest time in Fastest Finger First.
