- It was exactly what I had feared.
So cash reads the judgment from the 'Who wants to be a millionaire'host, Christian Degn, since the Extra Blade catches him over the phone for a chat about Sunday's premiereprogram. Here it went totally wrong for the new quizmester.
the Contestant Peter from Andover was well on the way to the million, when he stalled on the question to 32,000 dollars. He should complete the sanglinjen 'check ignition and...' from the David Bowie classic 'Space Oddity', and it caused him problems.
He chose therefore to make use of the lifeline 'ask the host'.
'Ask the host' gives, as the name suggests, the participants the opportunity to hear the Christian Degns suggestions on which answer choice is correct. The host can't even see the answer on his screen, so he must resort to his trivia.
Christian Degn was, however, by his own admission, '80 to 90 percent sure' that the correct answer was '... can you hear me, Major Tom'. Peter therefore took the chance and followed his advice.
he should not have done.
The correct answer was '... may god's love be with you', so Peter had to leave the studio with a modest 5000 euros, while the Christian Degn was left with a few red ears.

the next Day they are Christian Degn not hesitate to admit that he most of all wanted to disappear in the moment.
- I had desire to put my 'tiny' body down into an even smaller mouse hole. If I could get my two feet down in a mouse hole, so I had done it, he says.
- I'm still bad. You can also hear, I get the call, when we're talking about it now. For the same reason that I have not seen the program yet.
There is especially one feature of the situation that causes it to do extra hurt on the otherwise ever-happy tv host.
- I'm annoyed with it, I actually had the feeling that he could have gone quite far, he says.
- I have written with Peter on Sunday evening and told that I still have it bad. But without revealing too much I can say, that I later in the season ends up being a really good boy again.
Since the program in its time was recorded, there was a short pause immediately following, Christian Degn made his svipser, and according to the protagonist himself, it was with heavy steps, he subsequently went back on stage:
- I can remember that I really should gather myself up, for I have it... I was really annoyed that it had to go beyond Peter, that I thought I could something I could just.

Although of course it's not fun to make mistakes, is Christian Degn well satisfied with the new lifeline, which he believes is to show that the host is not omniscient.
- indeed, I'm just a human being. It is, of course, is different now, is that the former, as you never His Pilgaard, Jes Dorph or Peter Kjær sit and make mistakes, because the lifeline existed not at that time, he says.
- But we so often, that you are calling a good friend, which then turns out to be a little bad friend at the moment.
He put the however, did not hide the fact that the questions gets harder and harder the further you get in the quiz.
- If you need to win the million, then you must be good enough to be a wise person - combined with a bit of luck and the courage to gamble.
'Who wants to be a millionaire' can be seen every Sunday at 20.50 on TV2 Charlie or TV2 PLAY.
