What is the English name of the main character of the familiar series of "Milli Molli" children's books?
'Ask the Audience', '50:50' and 'Phone-a Friend' lifelines used
• A: Milly-Molly • B: Milly-Molly-Marilie
• C: Milly-Molly-Jo • D: Milly-Molly-Mandy
Ask the Audience Results: A: 53% • B: 18% • C: 16% • D: 13%
Timo knew the first 12 questions without using any lifelines. However, Timo did not have a clue in the 13th question, so at first he used 'Ask the Audience' lifeline, then '50:50' lifeline, and finally he phoned his friend Mirja. Mirja had never heard of Milli Molli. Timo decided to walk away with 250,000 marks. The correct answer was D: Milly-Molly-Mandy.
