Barbara Eden, walked away with $25,000 in winnings after incorrectly guessing the answer to the $50,000 question on Wednesday’s episode of “Famous Names Week” on “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.” She started in the hot seat on Tuesday’s show, where she made it up to the $25,000 question. She continued as a holdover contestant on Wednesday’s show, where she started by looking at the $50,000 question with no lifelines left.
Barbara’s $50,000 question was: Category, ‘What a Bargain!’ – “Which of these U.S. states was not formed at least in part from land bought during the Louisiana Purchase? A: Minnesota , B: Arkansas , C: Colorado , D: Illinois.” Barbara guessed the answer to be “C,” but unfortunately, the correct answer was “D.” Barbara walked away with $25,000 in winnings.
