Eddie’s HOT SEAT returns to Melbourne with new episodes from Monday


Nine’s long-running afternoon quiz show, Millionaire Hot Seat, is back with new episodes from Monday.

The new episodes – filmed without a studio audience and under COVID-safe conditions – are the first to be made in Melbourne since Millionaire Hot Seat took a break on the Gold Coast in late 2020.

Host Eddie McGuire said:

“Much like with the AFL, it was great for Hot Seat to feel the hospitality of Queensland last year. We are so thankful for their vital support. I am very excited to bring Millionaire Hot Seat back to its spiritual home in Melbourne. 2020 was an extremely challenging year for so many and it is fantastic to be back giving people the opportunity to win huge cash prizes.”

Big money is always on the line and big money will be taken home as Millionaire Hot Seat returns with a huge first episode. Melbourne contestant Jeremy Crocker will compete in the hope of claiming the cash to share with his beloved West Ivanhoe Roosters Football Club. Can he handle the heat of the hot seat and walk way a millionaire?

In addition to the brand new episodes of Millionaire Hot Set, Eddie is bringing back the original Who Wants To Be A Millionaire with a series of special TV events from Monday January 25, at 7.30pm on Nine. The special events will follow the original format and feature Australian celebrities, Australian sport stars and frontline workers.

A whopping total of $82,785,000 has been won on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire and Millionaire Hot Seat over the past 22 years.
