Last Summer, American Scott Mandell visited the island of Bali with some friends booking local arrangements and guides through balidiscovery.com. Shortly after his visit, Scott wrote to tell us how happy he was with the service of our guide Budi and the assistance provided by Bali Discovery Tours.
Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?
In October following his return to the U.S.A., Scott was invited to participate as a contestant on the famous TV Game Show Who Wants to Be a Millionaire (WWTBAM). Scott's appearance was broadcast nationally on Monday, January 5, 2004, where he vied for a chance to go home a millionaire. When WWTBAM's host, Meredith Viera asked Scott what he might do if he won the grand prize of US$ 1 million he replied, "I was in Bali for two weeks this past summer and if I win the money, I want to take my mother back to Bali with me for two weeks this coming summer."
Alas, Scott didn't manage to make it to the millionaire's circle, but did go home with US$ 16,000 with the assistance of a telephone caller who told him that Maine is the U.S. state with the nickname "Down East," due to the high winds common there. He opted out at the next level of US$ 32,000 when he did not know the word taken from the French meaning "to heat" or "to stoke" (chauffeur).
We've been in contact with Scott assuring him that bargain packages including airfares from the U.S.A. and hotels in Bali abound. We are now helping him plan his next trip to Bali – a destination that even non-millionaires can enjoy.
Hopefully, he'll bring his Mom along.
