In the Turkish version of the popular game show Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? aka Kaun Banega Crorepati? in India a contestant used up two of her lifelines to answer where the Great Wall of China is located. According to Hurriyet Daily News, 26-year-old Su Ayhan, an economics graduate from Istanbul was stumped when given four choices: China, India, South Korea, and Japan.
After looking at the question, used the audience poll just to be sure. However, only 51% of the audience members picked China as the location of the Great Wall of China. Still unsure and not wanting to lose, Ms Ayhan then used her second lifeline and phoned a friend, who confirmed that the Great Wall of China is, in fact, located in China. She was saved from an embarrassing elimination, but the entire incident went viral and Twitteratti criticised Ms Ayhan for failing to answer the simple question.
Ms Ayhan was however eliminated when she answered the next question incorrectly, failing to identify the composer of a popular Turkish song. “I could use my lifelines whenever I wanted,” an undaunted she said in response to the criticism, according to Hurriyet Daily News.
