Regis Philbin, the first host of the American WWTBAM, was chosen as the 10th anniversary primetime revival's final celebrity contestant by Meredith Vieira, who was said to have been so by rumours. He was asked a $50,000 question and won the money for his charity, the Cardinal Hayes High School in the Bronx. Here is how Regis won $50k.
