The name of this famous geographical feature comes from the name of an American pilot who in the 1930s landed near the place where it flows from: a waterfall in Canada, a river in Africa, a waterfall in Venezuela or a river in the United States? This question was answered by Mr. Mikołaj Adamiec-Siemiątkowski from Warsaw for PLN 250,000.
Mr. Nicholas from Warsaw started the game in Thursday’s episode of “Millionaires”. He is a classical philologist, he studied Latin and Greek. To win a million zlotys, the participant would have to answer 12 questions correctly, and he has three lifelines to help him: a phone call to a friend, half and half and a question to the audience.
Mr. Claus was storming, answering questions about physics, history, mathematics and art. Thus, he managed to reach the tenth question without using any of the lifelines. The problem only appeared in the question for 250 thousand, which read as follows:
The name of this famous geographical feature comes from the name of an American pilot who in the 1930s landed near the place where it flows:
Mr. Mikołaj admitted that he was wondering about the answer D. He also mentioned several names of waterfalls located in Venezuela, but none of them reminded him of an American name. The player decided to use the first circle – a phone call to a friend – to call his dad and ask him for his opinion. Unfortunately, the content of the question was so long that the conversation did not bring the results expected by Mr. Mikołaj. Ultimately, the participant decided to select answer D, but unfortunately it was not correct.
In the 1930s, American pilot Jimmy Angel flew over the mountains of Venezuela, searching for gold. He then spotted a waterfall, at the top of which he landed only a few years later. However, the plane he was flying in crashed and got stuck in a swamp. Angel and his companions struggled through the jungle for several days to reach the waterfall. In honor of the aviator who discovered it, the world’s highest waterfall was named Salto Angel.
Therefore correct answer answer this question in the “Millionaires” program is C.
