* During the first round of ''Celebrity Millionaire'' episodes, Rosie O'Donnell spent week after week trying to advance past the Fastest Finger segment, to her increasing exasperation. It got to the point where even Creator/{{ABC}} put out promos for the show about it. Eventually, O'Donnell managed to compete and came away with $500,000, in what turned out to be the highest-rated (36.1 million viewers) episode of the Philbin run.

* October 2012: Brandon Saunders gets a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bmf99tyUd40 question]] about a FanNickname for a cable network due to its late-night offerings. It quickly escalated, leading to him using Ask the Audience. The [[IncrediblyLamePun climax]]? 69% said "Skinemax". FreudWasRight, indeed.

** Similarly, when a contestant is split between two answers and Asks the Audience... only for the audience to tie between the two. Even better when the contestant uses their 50:50 first, only for the audience to vote 50% on either answer.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eXTSUZtMhCs Ralf Schnoor's Phone-A-Friend]], overlapping with MomentOfAwesome. With a million euros on the line, he calls his friend and starts the 30 seconds with (roughly) "Hi. How are you?" and proceeds to chat casually for another five seconds. The look on host Günther Jauch's face was priceless.

* A few times it just so happened that the result of the "Ask the Audience" lifeline resulted in a 25% agreement for ''every single answer'', which as usual resulted in funny facial expressions and snarky comments.

Added DiffLines:

* More than once, a contestant has used the "Ask the Audience" lifeline, and gotten one hundred percent on an answer. That means, apparently, the only person in the entire set that didn't know the answer was the contestant in the hot seat. Every time, the host has cracked a fairly snarky joke at the contestant's expense.
