Ballarat teacher 100k richer



A Ballarat teacher has pocketed $100,000 after appearing on Millionaire Hot Seat.

24-year-old Luke Philp wiped tears from his eyes after correctly answering the final question on Nine’s popular game show on Monday.

Philp, who changed his answer at the last second, says it was a lucky guess.

"I basically just panicked, I don't know if I was trying to read into what Eddie was doing, it was a ust a split decision and geez I'm glad I did," he said with a laugh.  

He told host Eddie Maguire he would put the winnings toward a house.
