Chcete být milionářem? (English translation: Do you want to be a millionaire?) is a Czech game show based on the original British format of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?. The show was hosted by Vladimír Čech, Martin Preiss and Ondřej Hejma (consecutively). The current host is Marek Vašut. The main goal of the game is to win 10 million (€370,000) by answering 15 multiple-choice questions correctly. There were 3 lifelines, in the new version a 4th lifeline was added - fifty fifty (50:50), phone a friend (přítel na telefonu), ask the audience (rada publika) and help of the one from audience (pomoc diváka z publika). The game show is shown on the Czech TV station TV NOVA. When a contestant gets the fifth question correct, he leaves with at least 10,000 Kč. When a contestant gets the tenth question correct, he leaves with at least 320,000 Kč. Nobody won the main prize. The format was briefly adopted by another TV station under the name Milionář. The show was on from 2000 to 2005, and in March 2016 it went on again with new Risk format. The 2016 episodes are recorded in Cologne, where German and Austrian versions are shot as well. In June 2017 show returned to air.
