As Eddie McGuire celebrates of 20 years of Millionaire Hot Seat and Who Wants to Be a Millionaire this year, he remembers the times he's seen the lives of contestants change in a matter of minutes.

Speaking to 9Honey Celebrity, McGuire says he never tires of seeing the look on a person's face when they learn they've won a life-altering amount of money.

"So many people's lives changed by winning $20,000 or $10,000. I mean, we do the game Fastest Finger First where you can win $1,000. And some of them don't want to give $1,000 back.

99-Year-Old WWII Vet Gets Birthday Party at His Favorite Doughnut Shop

99-Year-Old WWII Vet Gets Birthday Party at His Favorite Doughnut Shop Thomas House has been visiting the same shop for three decades. A 99-year-old World War II vet received a sweet surprise when his family threw him a birthday party at his favorite doughnut shop. Thomas House has been visiting the same shop for three decades, so his family thought the West Covina, California, shop would be fitting for an early birthday party. “As far as I’m concerned 99 [is] just another number,” House told KCBS. The party doubled as a going away party for House, who is moving to San Diego. The Rainbow Donuts shop owners attended the party also, so they could say goodbye to House.

In April the Millionaire brand passed its 20 th anniversary and Hot Seat is about to mark the occasion next week.

Eddie McGuire slammed for ‘racist’ joke to Jewish-Scottish Hot Seat contestant.

"For some people that is an extravagant dinner. It's the 50th birthday dinner that they've always wished for. With a prize of $10,000 or $20,000 they can go on a holiday that they always dreamed of."

For some contestants, they want to give back to their mum and dad.

"The amount of times I've had people who have been first generation Australians, who take their parents back to the village in Italy or back to Ireland or somewhere and they send me photos... It's really heartwarming," says the TV personality. "I don't ever get tired of seeing the joy."

And for some people, it's a gamble that pays off.

"I once had a contestant come on the show," recalls McGuire. "He was a serious businessman in a really nice suit, a well-to-do sort of guy right in the middle of the global financial crisis. He won a lot of money. We came off set and I said, 'Do you want to use my phone and ring your wife?' And he started shaking and broke down.

"He hadn't told his wife or his daughter who was in the audience that, because of the GFC, he was going to see the real estate agent the next day to sell the family house and that he was going to pull his daughter out of school. You go, 'Wow, this isn't just life changing. This is a lifesaving experience.'"

McGuire has loved hosting the game show for the last two decades.

"It really opened up and changed my life," he says. "It's been such a fantastic joy to me."
