Who Wants to Be a Millionaire is celebrating a major milestone.

The hit quiz show has officially handed out over $100 million in total winnings since its syndicated debut in 2002.

Millionaire, hosted by Chris Harrisonwill celebrate the achievement with a week of shows Nov. 12-16. Each day this week, the show will revisit a moment with a favorite past contestant, one of whom will be selected to come back for another chance to win on Friday.

“We’ve given away a grand total of $100 million over the past 16 years. To commemorate that milestone, one of our all-time favorite contestants is about to take another run at that $1 million prize,” Harrison explains on the show.

Some of the fan favorites include the first woman millionaire, a pair of kid contestants and more.

But that’s not all! Dedicated viewers will also have a chance to win big.

“One lucky viewer out there is going to be selected to win a magical Disney cruise line vacation,” Harrison says.

The show first aired in 1999, and while its format has evolved over the years, the basic rules have remained the same: answer trivia questions to walk away with what could be life-changing money.
