    It's fake.

    Which isn't to say that there aren't people that stupid out there. But this woman is not one of them.

    This is BAUT. Got proof of that?
    (I might go look for it on youtube after dinner.)

    Edit: Alright, found it on Snopes. http://www.snopes.com/radiotv/gameshows/millionaire.asp

    I'm pretty sure I've seen early questions on millionaire that weren't any harder than that!

    The snopes link had the Sun/Moon/Venus/Mars question which I found rather funny.

    Well, at least she solved the puzzle correctly (though she seemed to struggle a bit).

    I recall watching wheel of fortune once where the puzzle was the phrase "It takes one to know one". A few letters were still missing, including the "I". The contestant's attempt to solve the puzzle was "E.T. takes one to know one."
