WWTBAM's fourth player, David Honea, was the most famous contestant in the August primetime series; he was the third most famous behind Doug van Gundy and Michael Shutterly. He got up to $32k, using all three lifelines on the $32,000 question, and answered the $64,000 question "incorrectly". The word, "incorrectly", was placed in quotation marks in the previous sentence because of one reason; David answered the question correctly in a legitimate way, but the producers had a different "right" answer. After David's original run, he was given a cheque for $32,000, and told the producers about his answer backstage. They were wrong and David was legitimately right, so Regis gave David a cheque for $64,000 before the credits started, but took it away from him in a way of Chris Tarrant's quote, "But, we don't wanna give you that!" He told David that on the last night of the August primetime series, he will be allowed in the Hot Seat to attempt to answer 4 more questions to win a million with no lifelines left, as he used them on the $32,000 question. That night, David got to $125,000, was asked a $250,000 question, and walked with $125,000. That was a great finale to the 2-week series in August of 1999. Here are the two runthroughs of David Honea up to the $250,000 question, where he took the money and went.

After using 50:50 and Ask the Audience, David used his Phone a Friend lifeline to call his father-in-law, Ed. During the 30-second conversation, Ed took a guess at D: Hip Box, not knowing what a creel was. With all lifelines used, David said "Final Answer, A," and got the question right for $32,000.

Which of the following Great Lakes is the largest in area?
• A: Lake Huron • B: Lake Michigan
• C: Lake Ontario • D: Lake Erie

On the last night of the August series of the primetime Millionaire, David was automatically won $64,000 for his answer, and played for $125,000.

Had he gone for the $250,000 question, he would've said D: Quart. The answer was D: Quart! David could've won $250,000! But, $125,000 wasn't a bad amount for David.
