John Carpenter is an American game show contestant and IRS agent.
He was answering the last question on who want’s to be a millionaire, remarkably, having 3 lifelines untouched!
The $1 million question was: “Which of these U.S. Presidents appeared on the television series ‘Laugh-In’?”, with the choices being\
A) Lyndon Johnson
B) Richard Nixon
C) Jimmy Carter
D) Gerald Ford.
When he heard the final question, he decided to call his father Tom.
Everyone was expecting John to narrate the question to his father, so he could somehow help him find the correct answer, but that’s not what happened.
He did something that left the crowd open-mouthed. In fact, they were all applauding him!
