Dream Job

Many people dream of becoming millionaires these days. In order to make this dream come true, people play the stock market, play the lottery, and appear on television game shows designed for this purpose.

And honestly, the television programs place contestants in the risky position of looking foolish by missing an easy question in front of millions of viewers.
