A lucky Hot Seat winner walked away with a $100,000 prize yesterday.

  • Go into space
  • Win an Olympic medal
  • Run for President

She correctly identified the answer but only after changing her mind at the last minute. It was a decision that paid off handsomely.

By comparison $100,000 is also the prize for a full season on MasterChef AustraliaCelebrity Apprentice, Zumbo’s Just Desserts & Nine’s upcoming Family Food Fight.

She plans to put the money on a house deposit.

Last year 67 year old retiree Edwin Daly became the first to win the $1m on the Hot Seat format.
