Lifelines Edit

In show were 7 lifelines:

  • 50:50 (ห้าสิบห้าสิบ)
  • Phone-a-Friend (โทรศัพท์หาใครก็ได้)
  • Ask the Audience (โหวต)
  • Switch the Question (เปลี่ยนคำถาม)
  • Double Dip (ตอบสองครั้ง) (in Thai version using Double Dip doesn't prevent contestant to walk away or use other lifeline, see the sample at 5:20, player allow to use multiple lifeline at once even after use double dip https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XflHpoWl0mw she use it with Ask the Host lifeline and the host pinpoint the answer for her and correctly answer the question in the end.)
  • Help of Audience Members (ถามใครก็ได้) (Works like the People Speak, except there are only 2 people answering, it is the friend of contestant to choose to bring into the show)
  • Ask the Host (ถามไตรภพ) (Contestant get to ask the host Traiphop Limpapath which of the answer they think is the correct answer (can choose up to 2 answers or let the host do it for you), then the host will remove 2 wrong answers. This is the most useful lifelines in all of WWTBAM as of now because you get to dip into 2 answers you think is correct with risk free and the host will remove 2 wrong answers for you. If your answer is correct, the host will not remove your correct answer but remove other 2 wrong answers that you didn't answer but if your answer is wrong, the host will remove all 2 of your answer mentioned before, in this worse case, you still get better version of 50:50 because you get to guess 2 free answer first and the host tend to help contestant by cutting mislead choice that contestant may think in wrong way if they ever say something out loud if contestant have no idea what choice they want to guess)
