Shannon Sullivan is a math major from St. John's, Newfoundland. He was the third contestant on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire: Canadian Edition and won CA$1,000 after incorrectly answering his CA$16,000 question. He was the first contestant not to use all of his lifelines as he did not use his Phone-A-Friend, as well as the first not to use Ask the Audience on one of the first five questions.
Shannon was not sure, so he decided to ask the audience. The majority went for C: Joe Carter, so Shannon went with them, which was correct.

In Nova Scotia, the term "Digby chicken" refers to what? "50:50" lifeline used.
• A: Cured herring
• B: Rubber duck
• C: Smoked lobster

Shannon has been to Nova Scotia, but he has never heard of a Digby chicken, and nothing jumps out at him, so he decided to use his 50:50, which took away B and D. Lobster made more sense to Shannon than herring, so he went for C, but the answer was A: Cured herring.
