Who Wants To Beat Up a Millionaire Death

Post#1 » Sun Jul 26, 2020 11:12 pm

My wife just told me Regis Philbin just died yesterday. He was the original US host of "Who Wants To Be a Millionaire?" that was the basis used in the parody version in the DC video game "Who Wants To Beat Up a Millionaire?". My wife and I play that game...a very humorous adult version of the real thing.

To note, Egregious Philin is the parody name of the host in the game. You have to play it with others or it is not fun. A true adult party game.

i saw this in the news and thought it was quite eerie we had literally had a conversation about this game. Very sad.

Agreed. Even more eerie is Bing's "Today In History" features Kathie Lee Gifford leaving the show"Live", which she and Regis Philbin hosted for 15-years together. Notable footnote: Nickelodeon cartoon "Hey Arnold!" featured a parody of them and their talk show.
