A contestant on Million Dollar Minute walked away with $307,000 -equalling the biggest prize the show has given away and reportedly the largest cash prize given by an afternoon quiz show.
26-year-old nightshift worker Alex Dusek plans to spend his money on a low-budget horror movie that he has been scripting for the past three years.
For their efforts the show pulled 617,000 viewers.
But over on rival network Nine, Hot Seat recorded its biggest audience of the year at 746,000 and its best numbers since July.
