Hu Wants to Be a Millionaire was crowned the first winner of the film History and Politics Teacher. In 14 years.
Donald Fierre, 57, is currently planning to spend his $ 1 million prize money on a motor home vacation across the UK.
The father of four living in Telford correctly answered the last 15th question about the death of a famous pirate in 1718.
Mr. Fear, who has been married to his wife Debs for 33 years, is the sixth champion in the 22 – year history of the ITV program.
This fortune increased in the family as an older brother, David, won $ 500,000 as a contestant at the same event last year.
After the victory, Mr. Fear and his wife began a voyage on the coast of Northumberland with his wife.
The couple had previously planned to visit Santander, Bilbao and Pamplona in Spain before heading to the Pyrenees, but Covid-19 blocked it.
When asked how he would spend his next vacation, Mr Fear revealed that he wanted to buy a motor home and visit the “stunning UK”.
He said: “I want to go to the states on the next flight or something like that, this is not an option.
“So right now this is stunning UK, maybe Wales first – so I’m going to spend my 1 million on a motor home in Wales.”
“Mr. Fear is like the encyclopedia Britannica sitting opposite me,” said Jeremy Clarkson, the show’s presenter: “Google it, in one head.”
Describing himself as a democratic socialist, Mr. Fear planned to give at least 70% of his success to his family members and spend the rest on “comfortable retirement.”
He also explained the idea of buying an Aston Martin sports car or moving house: “This is a beautiful area. I’ve been there for 27 years.”
After winning the show’s first fast second finger on Friday, Mr Fear said he was soon in the area.
However, he admitted: “Then I climbed into the chair to discuss my next thing, because I was a little worried that I would fall … because I have very short legs.
“I was focused, I was sitting as still as I could, so trying to keep this (me) calm and serene thing from not making myself a complete idiot on national television.”
The last question he correctly answered was: “In 1718, which pirate was killed in what is now the Battle of North Carolina?”
“I’m a date man,” he said.
“You must not have been a history teacher for 33 years without knowing a few dates, and 1718 and Blackbird came to me instantly.”
Mr. Fear used one of his lifelines, 50:50, to win the jackpot, without using his two “phone a friend” and “ask the host” options.
Because of the COVID-19 episodes the studio pre-recorded without an audience, competitors were given the option of a dual “phone front” instead of asking the audience.
Fear, who was born in Bristol, said he had resigned as a teacher at the Adams Grammar School of Haberdashers in Newport, Shropshire. Former Labor leader Jeremy Corbyn is an alumnus.
But he said: “The rules are that you have to go by the end of a period.
“Actually, I’ve never explored the possibility of not being able to go back – but how unfair would that be to my A-level students?”
I had planned to go two years just before my sixtieth birthday.
“Like, I’m going after my 58s.”
Adams Grammar of Haberdashers shared congratulations on Twitter.
A note from the school number reads: “Well a performance like a cucumber Mr. Fear! Congratulations from everyone in Adams! ‘I taught this to 8 year olds!”
Mr. Fear celebrated his victory with his brother, claiming he was a more intelligent brother.
He said: “He makes me happy.
“We went to spend a night at a hotel with our wives last week and it was completely plastered. He was stabbing me at how happy he was and how happy he was at it.”
The final winner of the Best Prize was Ingram Wilcox in 2006.
Five contestants previously won the $ 1 million prize in the UK edition of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire.
The first was in November 2000 by Judith Kepler.
To her last question, the then host Chris Tarant asked: “The king who married Eleanor of Aquitaine?”
Miss Keppel answered Henry II correctly.
