Host - Regis Philbin

regis-1.jpg (9281 bytes)That's right, everyone, Regis Philbin of Live with Regis and Kathie Lee is the host of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?.  Regis's place is on the other side of the two computer monitors, across from the "hot seat".

In game show, Millionaire in particular, the host is vital to the show's success.  In my opinion, I believe that Regis has passed this test with flying colors.  He gets the contestants revved up for the attempt at a million dollars, and then off we go!  Generally speaking, regis-2.jpg (7646 bytes)Regis and the contestant breeze through the questions up to around $1,000, the first milestone level (where you're guaranteed to walk away with at least that much).  Then of course, as the questions progress, and the stakes get higher, the pace slows down, of course.

All in all, Regis Philbin is an excellent host for the American version of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, and I hope to see him as the host for many, many shows to come.
